As I am sure you can see, I suck at uploading pictures on this thing. I cannot for the life of me make them do what I want them to do! So here there are, in a random, haphazard order: Caden and Avery's second birthday pictures! You'll notice that most are of Avery, because Caden wouldn't hold still long enough for a decent picture.
You'll also notice the absence of clothing in a few. Avery was reduced to her diaper and new horse slippers by the end of the evening (her favorite outfit, by the way) and Caden to just a diaper. Caden had conveniently found someone's Coke sitting somewhere, and had hidden in the corner to drink it. I didn't think I had to worry too much about the amount of caffeine or sugar he had consumed, considering most of it appeared to be ON him, rather than IN him.
I decided to make homemade cupcakes for them, instead of using a boxed cake mix, which was not the brightest idea. I forgot the baking sode and the vanilla the first time (attention all mom's with under three children: stop at two! or even one! after the third, your mind is shot) so the first batch of cupcakes had a nice crater in the middle, as well as the density of a rock. So I then made a second batch, so that I completed a total of six hours baking cupcakes. I should also add that Avery only ate two bites, and Caden threw his on the floor and wouldn't touch it.
They're getting boxed cake next year.
