Two! Our little April Fool is 2 years old!

Birthdays are such a special day, I think they deserve 2 outfits! One to wear during the day…

Delaney got all sorts of great presents…clothes (which she loves), legos, Mr. Potato Head, coloring books, sticker books, a big wheel tricycle, Leap Frog books and a raincoat, which I thought she might actually wear to bed!


I made these cupcakes by dividing white cake batter into 5 bowls. Then I added food coloring and spooned them in by layers into cupcake pans. I got the idea from Meg at whatever. Only I have such a terrible time with cakes, I decided cupcakes were the way to go for me.

Plus, cupcakes are so easy to serve at birthday parties!


I also made mini cupcakes and frosted them with yellow, red and green frosting (homemade buttercream frosting….MMM). And a rainbow party wouldn’t be complete without jelly beans!

Delaney was so pleased as she listened to everyone sing “Happy Birthday” to her. She blew out her candles all by herself with just 2 blows.

I’m unrealistically optimistic that the twos will be anything but terrible!!


  1. Great pics Marcie, she is such a beautiful girl. Those cupcakes turned out great, I think I'm going to borrow that idea :)
