Happy Birthday, Alex

For a whole week before Alex's 2nd birthday it was all Aurora talked about.  Every morning when she woke up, Alex's birthday party was the first thing she talked about. We started a count down.

She is not sure what to do with it.  

One bite and she already has a sugar coma. 

What? do you have have a problem with they way I eat my cake? 

Here, Aunt Erin. (She is probably going to kill me for putting this up.)

Would you like some frosting too?

It is pretty embarrassing that I don't have any pictures with Alex in them.

Her first inclination was to get in the beer crate

Gently, gently!
