2 year old birthday party!

We had family over to celebrate our 2 year old's birthday (Blaine - we missed your family). He is a BIG Wiggles fan, but those party decorations were hard to find so we chose Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (he calls him Mick-I it makes him sound Russian.)

Here are links to some of the recipes I made at the party. At some point I will put them on my recipe blog but right now I have plenty of blogging to catch up on here first.
Bunco Buns
Chicken Salad w/ Cranberry & Pecans
Mexican Corn Dip
Magnolia Vanilla Cupcakes (best cupcakes I have EVER tasted - the frosting was just OK. I left a few plain because they were SOOOO GOOD!! Side note- the original Magnolia Bakery was credited for starting the cupcake craze.)

Getting lots of help opening his gifts

Holding the Mick-I he received as a gift.

Loves his Diego Backpack!

He thinks he is so big now that he has a bike like his brothers.

One of his favorite gifts. His brothers enjoy playing with the bat and ball as well. So far they have used it in the right way and not as a weapon. ;o)

At his first birthday instead of blowing out the candle, he put it out with his fingers. We decided he should practice this year, so on his actual birthday we showed him how to blow out candles. We thought he had it down - guess we were wrong.

Everyone at the party started saying "no, no, no, no" and it freaked him out a bit. Here Jeremy and Aunt Sloan are trying to explain that he needs to blow the candle out.

Mission accomplished!

My sweet boys after the party.

Oh, he's delish! Those eyes! We all have squinty eyes in this family, so I guess you could say I have eye envy. :)
