Jelly Bean is Two!

Our little lady is TWO years old! It was a wonderful day full of family, friends, surprises, Minnie Mouse, and "backe backe kuchen" (cake). 

This was the first time she got to help bake cupcakes. She did a good job and ate only twice as much as made it into the cupcake holders. 

After a morning of preparing the house and ourselves, Bean got to open the first of her gifts. 

PJ helped. A lot. 

After naptime we all got dressed into our party clothes. She got to wear a brand new "princess" dress. 

The dress didn't stay for long - not a big surprise - and she got to be quite the expert at present opening by the end of the day. A number of friends came as well as family. It was a relaxed atmosphere with good people and good food. 

As the evening came to a slow close, Bean finally got a quiet moment with Granny and Grandpa together. 

We have so many more pictures, even with us parents!, of our wonderful day together. 

Birthdays are special, an opportunity to celebrate the birthday kid as well as reflect on how lucky the rest of us are for that specific birthday kid. 

Bean, I love you and I'm so grateful you joined us.
