I seem to have lost my mojo…and I don’t think it’ll be back this week either. LOL For some reason, my birthday pictures, are just….well…..they are just snapshots. Nothing fancy, just pictures of my kids.
I haven’t done any fancy professional BIRTHDAY pictures yet of the adorable chubby 1 year old smashing cake on plexi-glass in front of a backdrop.
I wish. Anyone have a 1 year old I could borrow today? 😉
2 days before Brooklyn turned 2 (she’s 3 now…), we had the worst ice storm our city has ever seen. So, 2 days before she turned 2, we lost power.
To most of our city.
For 4 days. (at our house at least)
So, imagine your baby girl’s second birthday without power of any kind. In an ice storm. With nothing.
Yes, I cried. Really, really hard.
We went to WalMart the day OF her birthday (the day before they had no power and wouldn’t let us in) and I cried all over the baker lady that I had to have SOMETHING for her birthday. I don’t want the old stuff made before the ice storm, did she have anything at all I could use. As luck would have it, she did. She had a dozen cupcakes she had JUST iced sitting in the back.
And I bought them.
And we celebrated Brooklyn’s 2nd birthday in the cold, with no power, at a table moved into the living room in front of the fireplace, our only source of heat and light.
But that’s one birthday we will ALWAYS remember!
ETA: I can’t BELIEVE I forgot my pet photo! LOL
Jack, the turtle.
Funny, how everything Chandler names is Jack…
