Her beautiful cake was made by a friend of ours in our last neighborhood. She makes gorgeous cakes, I have her info if anyone would like to order one from her. I like to celebrate Alexis' birthday with hearts and pinks and reds, since it is so close to Valentine's day. The flowers and the number two were even sparkly.She is all ready for the day. I don't think she can get any cuter. She is just perfect!
We celebrated her birthday in McCall. She slept on the way up. I have no idea how she can sleep like this. It looks painful.
Every year in McCall they have a winter carnival with lots of ice sculptures. As soon as we came into town, we were greeted by Thomas the train. It looked like he was coming out of the mountain. The back car even had a place for kids to climb in for a picture.
Presents!!!!I love this picture!!taking a little break in her new chairpretty as a princess in camo. ha.ha. I am sure it is obvious that my dad picked out that hat for her.My parents gave her this cute birthday doll. Way cute. She also got a little vacuum, a baby (from Kylie), a tent (from Carson), new swim suit, clothes, a Dora chair....and a few more. She had a good day needless to say=0)Good thing we had enough cake to share. This big guy was an unexpected guest. He was very large and healthy. Where is Billy the exterminator when you need him. ha.ha The kids threw some crackers and he was a happy camper.
The next day we went out to check out some more ice sculptures. Here is Kyle studying my R.S lesson book, while doing his business! ha.ha. This sculpture won second place. Very creative.
The trains were Carson's favorite of course. Trains must have been the theme this year, because there were at least three or four of them. This one was amazing. It won a prize for the best maintained.
The birthday girl swimming! This was her first time wearing floaties, and she did awesome. She is pretty brave in the water, which is kind of scary.The birthday girl getting her beauty restOn our way home we stopped to see the grand prize winner. It had a walkway leading up to it with bears and fish. Impressive!
And here is our two year old in her brand new big girl bed! Now we just need to get her to sleep in it all night.ha.haWe had the best time in McCall! Lexis' birthday fell on Super bowl Sunday. My parents came with us on our mini vacation. We watched the Packers win the game!!! Woohoo!! My dad has been a big fan of them for about 16 years. I also am a fan of them, since I grew up watching them and cheering them on with my dad. I don't think Lexi's birthday could have been any better!
Some fun info. about Alexis:
She is in the 95% for height, 65% for weight ( she is pretty healthy. ha.ha.), when I ask her how old she is, she says " four-half" because that is what she hears her siblings say about their age, she likes pizza, loves pickles, loves to play with her brother and sister, she likes to snuggle, did not like her two year check up at all, Not a fan of doctors, she is still attached to her pacifier and calls it her "nummy", she is also enjoying drawing on the couch and walls recently, and just broke her front tooth. Terrible two's are officially here, and I wouldn't trade them for anything=0)
