Ruby turned 2 a couple of weeks ago. I was out of town and Nate had finals all day long, so her actual birthday wasn't even celebrated. When I got back in town, Nate was on Fall Break and so we decided to celebrate her birthday on Sunday, and then have friends over for dessert that evening.
After church, we opened presents...
Ruby handed Nate the wrapping paper after she tore off each piece. And the only way we could get Lyla NOT to help open Ruby's gifts was to give her a box of nerds to keep her hands busy. :)
|These two are so cute and are the best of friends!|
We set up all of Ruby's presents around her for a picture and she threw her arms up like this...
As I said, later that evening we had friends over for dessert. Ruby had a great time and loved the desserts, but after I told her she couldn't have any more it was all downhill from there. You see, Ruby must have heard the song and took the lyrics to heart of "It's my party and I'll cry if I want to...". I don't know if she was tired or if she was overwhelmed with all the people, but she was an unhappy little chick. Crying because I wouldn't give her any more dessert (she had had plenty!), or that we wouldn't let her go outside and play on her swing, or that I took a toy outside that kids kept falling on, or taking a flashlight away so she wouldn't blind herself as she kept staring into it's powerful light. Whatever it was, she just sobbed all night long. Some party, huh?
Anyway, she loves this s'more dessert and so we used that in place of a cupcake or cake. She loved it!
The dessert spread...
|S'more bars, Nutella fudge, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, and a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake.|
I'll do an official Ruby's 2 birthday post in a couple of days, but I'm waiting on a cute pic of her from our family photo session. :)
