Our little Sonja turned to two last month.

We started the celebration a few days early with Oma, Opa, Uncle Bill and Aunt Gloria. Uncle Bill made the girls this adorable hutch to match the table and chair set he made them last year. And Aunt Gloria brought little snack pack foods to stock their cupboards.

Sonja loved riding her bike from Oma and Opa.

Sonja's makeshift cake. As the layers were cooling, I pulled out the cake decorating basket to find it, uh, empty. Forgetfullness, you thick friend...I had lent everything to a friend months ago and had quite forgotten, naturally. Another friend had just given me the Hello Cupcake book with instructions for ziploc bag decorating and I found a set of four drippy primary colors in the back of a cabinet:

I felt accomplished until Sonja saw the cake and cried because there were ladybugs on it. (She still is freaked out by bugs...even M&M ones.)


  1. Happy birthday, Sonja! Missy, that cake is adorable!

  2. Are you kidding me?!? That cake is adorable! You even have a blue gingham plate to finish it off. Despite Sonja's protests, those lady bugs are awesome!

  3. How cool is that hutch?? And I love the cake, too! Great job, Missy!!

  4. What a fun blog, Missy! I just saw it on your Facebook page:). Beautiful cake, by the way!

  5. Missy! That cake is too cute. I love the Hello Cupcake book. Your little M&M ladybugs are too precious.
