Happy Birthday, Arwen!

Today, Arwen turns 2! I cannot believe it's already been two years since I had her. Time sure does fly! While she napped the other day, Savannah and I made this sandcastle cake for her out of Rice Krispy treats. I saw the sandcastle cake on the cover of my Family Fun magazine and it was more involved with icing and putting vanilla wafers in the food processor to make the "sand". I decided to make my version with Rice Krispies. That usually works for us because of Savannah's food allergies, plus I usually don't have any left over cake! LOL Arwen just LOVED it. . .and her big sister LOVED helping make it! We had a little birthday party for her on Wednesday at my parents' house. There she is sitting on PapPap's lap!


Happy Birthday, my baby girl! We love you so much! Bunches and Bunches and more Bunches! :)
