Cohen's Birthday Extravaganza

Saturday morning after our weekly outing to the Donut Hole, we went to the other side of the subdivision for the social event of the season: Cohen's Second Birthday Bash!  We had been awaiting the day almost as eagerly as Cohen and his family had.  Cohen's cake may have been made by his daddy, but the show was definitely put on by the birthday boy...
Stella's friend Tristyn came back to LaPlace for the soiree...

Tristyn's mommy made these yummy and beautiful cupcakes...

And these.  Marylou is so stinkin' talented!  I will not shame myself with any photos of the Duncan Hines cake I made for Mawmaw's birthday...

In spite of this face, Stella loved her cupcake.  Daddy really enjoyed the part that he scavenged after Stella licked all the icing off, too...

Due to a rain delay, Cohen got to start opening his presents early.  This was the scene in the Raney living room.  Do you think this kid is loved just a little bit? After I took this picture, I noticed that Stella was offering too much assistance and intervened...

When the sun returned, Stella was back in action...

Tristyn was too glam for a backyard.  This kid belongs in Hollywood...

Stella finally had a real-world application for those gymnastics skills...

Cohen, T-bird, and a friend enjoyed the sprinklers on the slip-n-slide...

We had so much fun celebrating with Cohen and his family!  Thanks for such a fun day, and Happy Birthday!
