Ree turns two

It's strange to think that two years ago I was holding a newborn in my arms and wondering what life with two children would be like, and now I can't imagine what life without these two children would be like.

Ree got a little handmade gift at breakfast yesterday to start the day off on a fun note.

Let's get ready to go to Home Depot!  Daddy is going to make you a birthday present today!

Ok, Mama, I'm ready:

What could this be?

By the time Ree woke up from her afternoon nap, it was ready for her {and her big sister} to do some serious playing.

A pizza dinner last night, and then German chocolate cake!  {but she only wanted the vanilla ice cream, as it turned out}

A new sandbox, and a couple of other small presents, too!  What a lucky and loved little girl.

{this little wooden village was a craigslist find for just a few dollars, and it's a lovely, quality German-made toy set that will go nicely on the car table I painted for the girls for Christmas}

So glad this kid joined our family two years ago.  Totally worth the hyperemesis, the aches and pains of pregnancy, and yes, even the labor and delivery.

Happy Birthday Miss Marie!
