Aaron's Second Birthday

It was an evening party and poor baby was tired.  We had a Curious George Party and set the table up with everything we owned that was Curious George.   He liked this jack in the box.

This little toy rocked and sang when you pushed his hand.

He had a stuffed animal George too.

Plus a great tea set

We displayed his book too.

Tired baby-and I must have been tired too because I didn't get pictures of the party!

Aaron's guests included cousin Samaiya, Avery, Jayden, Jessica, Bella, Trinity, Katie and Elliana.  We had the sandwiches, veggie and fruit platters.  Shelly made a yummy pasta salad and there was wonderful cranberry apple hot cider.  Piece of cake did the cake again with the vegan chocolate and we did a lemon coconut too.    Here's the cake:  Irish Oatmeal – vegan / wheat-free / organic-Moist oatmeal spice cake with a real homemade texture topped with a mixtures of coconut, almonds and brown sugar. Iced in white frosting.
