Happy second birthday to my baby girl!
AL turned 2 at the beginning of the month. We took a family trip to the zoo, but had our celebration with our extended family today. All of our friends have boys so I thought she was going to be greatly out numbered, but a lot of people pooped out at the last minute, and JJ ended up being the only boy. I had one of those weekends where anything that could go wrong did, and the day of the party was no exception. I was so proud of how well I took some of the setbacks. Amongst other loose ends, I had to frost the cupcakes. I was going to make the my usual butter frosting, but I remembered something I had pinned on Pinterest, and after a quick board search, I was off for Walmart trip number 3 for the day to pick up some last minute ingredients.
The frosting was well worth the trip!!!!

The recipe is so easy, 366 days of Pinterest is where I found this recipe first, but I think it's Not Just Cute's recipe. I put it in the freezer for a little bit before I frosted the cupcakes.
In the midst of my manic frosting session, sneaky little JJ ran off with one of the food coloring bottles. I was making GREAT time for the day. I was even ahead of schedule for my shower, and the day was off to a great start. Until I noticed my son was purple :)

Nothing like a child throw you off course. I won't lie, I was MAD!!! But, I made a choice right there on how I was going to let mishaps affect me all day. Instead of freaking out, I took pictures for you to see the difference between the food coloring in frosting and on child :) The rest of the day was filled with trials, but I shrugged each one off, and overall, we had a GREAT day. Perfect end of spring day to celebrate my littlest baby's second year in our life surrounded by people we love. So glad I took the time this morning to make that one little decision...
