What a great day we had celebrating with family and friends for your 2nd Birthday, sweet Rachel! It’s hard to believe you will be two in just a few short days! Of course, what better way to celebrate than with a Mickey and Minnie Mouse party! From the time you were itty-bitty you loved watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and dancing along to the music.  So it seemed only natural that we embrace your love for Mickey while we planned your 2nd birthday!

With the weather predictions calling for a large snowstorm, we were unsure if the party was actually going to happen in the first place.  Luckily for us, most of the snowfall held out until after our party was over.  And an extra special surprise happened during your party! Uncle Eric, who recently returned home early from Afghanistan, showed up on our front steps to surprise you! What a special birthday and Christmas gift!

Children’s squeals and laughter could be heard while you and your friends and cousins crafted a special ornament and played together with toys, adults chatted (and munched away on goodies!) and gifts were opened slowly but surely throughout the morning while Christmas music played in the background.  Little Jake napped through most of the party, but woke just in time to watch you blow out your birthday candles after you were serenaded by our friends and family (which you LOVED, by the way!).
