I swear she just turned four 2 weeks ago....at least it seems like 2 weeks! In the blink of an eye she is already celebrating her second birthday with us. All she has been asking for was a Hello Kitty birthday like she had last year, easy enough since just about everything we bought her had Hello Kitty on it :)
The festivities started with dinner with friends last night which included a cake with candles
After she went to bed we starting wrapping, and assembling, and decorating in preparation of the big day
This morning she woke up, rolled over and promptly yelled out "it's my birthday today!" 5:30 am isn't too early to unwrap gifts, right :)
After gifts came the cake. Last year she had us light and relight the candles multiple times so she could blow them out. This year she blew them out once and was done...cake is totally acceptable for breakfast on your birthday, right?! Please excuse my sloppy frosting job on the cake in this picture as the next picture totally makes up for it...
Yay for Pinterest!
She kept saying she wanted a pinata for her birthday and I was able to track down a Hello Kitty one...I think she really just wanted to beat on something with a stick as she wasn't really interested in the candy that came out lol!
Tonight we went to her favorite Chinese restaurant for dinner. We've been going to this particular restaurant regularly since we came home with her and everyone there knows her by name...she always runs in and greets everyone with a hug so they surprised her with a special birthday desert
