I don’t know how this happened, but somehow we’re amidst party planning Miss G’s second birthday. Good LORD.  The first year flew by, and this one has gone by even more quickly.  *sigh*

With just over a month until our little lady officially turns two, we headed out into Manmaw Charlotte and Poppop’s backyard this afternoon (yay for being back in the Okanagan!) to snap a photo for this year’s birthday invitation.

She was such a good sport and with a little help from Papa’s crazy attention-grabbing dances, we were able to get a bunch of shots I love.  Here are some of the outtakes…

Although I have mixed feelings about this whole my-girl-is-growing-up-before-my-eyes thing, I’m so excited about all of the little projects planned for this week’s vacation. Invites, decor, favours – I love it all.

Perhaps a couple of sneak peaks are in order?

  1. Kira just had her second birthday (and party) and for the weeks leading up to it I was so emotional and tearing up all over the place. It’s hard. They DO grow up too fast. Now Ally’s turning four in less than a week and I’m crying about her now. Sigh.

      1. The party went really well! I have some pictures, I’ve just been so busy (and lazy) I’ll get around to it though…eventually…hahaha. Happy Birthday to Miss G, I know it’s coming up!
