Who is 2??


The first thing he spotted was his giant dumptruck.

How he felt about opening presents.

Birthday Banner.

So happy.

Wheels? Check.
Passenger? Check.
Snack? Check.

Checking out Buzz on his new hoodie.
Thanks G & G Engle!

Mom's handiwork.

Cars cake.

I think this was the lowest-stress, best-tasting cake I have made in a LONG, long time.
Bottom layer: Dark Chocolate Cake.
Top layer (curve): Martha's Basic Yellow Cake (Seriously the best homemade cake I've made. Moist & dense.).
Frosting: Chocolate Buttercream (with a twist - 2 oz. of cream cheese!!).
Cookies: Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies.
Decoration: Crushed graham crackers, cocoa powder, Cars.

Big J at 2......
