Finley Lynn turns 2!
My sweet little girl turned two on Friday.
She was very excited for her special day. We celebrated by having our friends the Drapers over for dinner and cake and ice cream. We had shredded beef soft tacos with homemade flour tortillas, and it was really yummy. I was pretty busy getting everything ready for dinner, so I enlisted Sareny to wrap Fin's presents. I think she did a pretty good job!
Finley was especially excited to open her presents. She picked up the first one and took a big bite of the wrapping paper.
It was a blur of wrapping paper as she ripped into her gifts, not bothering to check out what was in one before moving on to the next.
Then it was on to the cake. Not decorated fancy, but really yummy. I made a strawberry cake mix and cream cheese frosting with fresh pureed strawberries mixed in. She was so cute and excited while we sang to her.
She blew out the candles with just a little help from brother, although I don't think she needed it. She blew out one and he blew out the other one.
Finally she was interested in her presents. She got a hot pink zhu-zhu pet hamster and this little ramp and slide for it to scamper around on. She also got a cute barbie and baby doll.
She clapped her hands as the pet made it up the ramp.
Later on she was lounging on the floor with her new toys, and it was so cute.
Grandma Nancy had sent Finley a birthday package a while ago, and I forgot to have her open it on her birthday, so she got to open it up the next day. She knew just what to do and was pretty excited. Here she is modeling one of the new outfits grandma sent.
I stay at home with 4 beautiful children--3 girls and 1 boy. Sareny is 9, Isaac is 6, Finley is 4, and baby Keeley is one! I've been married to my best friend for 15 years now, and we're still happy. Life is beautiful!
