Wordish Wednesday - Gingerbread Magic

Along with the birthday party over the weekend we also slipped in some time to make a Gingerbread house with the girls. They enjoyed putting candy all over the house and even sampled a piece or twenty. lol!

(the yummy candy)

(Jaelyn is very particular about where the candy should go. However, Abbie really didn't care as she just watched)

(I like how you can see Abbie sampling MORE candy in the background!)

(this picture just makes me laugh... Abbie is reaching for more candy and Jaelyn is like "hey, I want some too!")  

(The beautiful masterpiece. Ok, so it's not exactly cute country cottage but hey, its unique!)

No matter the mess, the candy high afterwards, the icing everywhere... what a great memory we made. ♥

Sunday was Abbie's 2nd Birthday Party. It was a cold day but thankfully, no snow!
Friends & family gathered at our local fire hall (where Daddy happens to volunteer) to celebrate the joyous occasion.

The Birthday Girl was spiffy from head to toe, complete with her pink fuzzy boots!


Aunt Jo made the birthday cake. It wasn't so easy finding a Barney to go on top either, let me tell ya!

But in the end, it turned out adorable and everyone enjoyed a piece.  

I love the crooked, sweet smile!

All of the kids showed their artistic side with some painting.

Abbie mostly concentrated on rinsing her brush out...

The rest of the festivities included a pinata, bouncy balls flying everywhere and a few short games of Red Robin & Simon Says!

Abbie was not really a happy camper when it came time to sing Happy Birthday but she was soon over that as she ripped off the paper to some presents!

Everyone had a fun day...

Happy Birthday, Cupcake!
(dirty face & all!)
