Nora's 2nd birthday!

Our sweet little lady had a birthday last month! Somehow these photos got lost in the shuffle, but better late than never to post all the fun we had!

Whenever she was asked what she wanted for her birthday, again and again Nora replied, "cupcakes and pink flowers." We tried to oblige her small sweet request!

I feel like for Nora and for Ella, the second birthday was so special. They sort of understood that a birthday would be a cool thing going into it, but couldn't remember their first birthdays. When they actually got presents and cupcakes and parties, they were just so delighted with it all. It's like seeing your favorite movie the very first time. You'll love it more and more with each watch (and then maybe not as much after many years have gone by . . . ), but the first time is where you're swept off your feet.

Gramma and Granddaddy were here too which made everything that much more exciting. Here is Graddaddy planting us our beautiful zinnias while his helpers dig in the new sandbox.

In between Nora's party day on a Saturday and the actual big day on Monday, we had a beautiful walk at the gardens, I'll put those photos in too.

Then it was birthday morning!

Happy Birthday darling 2 year old Nora!
