Yep. It was positively pinkalicious around here last night as we celebrated Sissie's half-birthday. We started this tradition last year where we make cupcakes, sing"Happy half-birthday to you" or "Half-y birthday to you" whichever we feel like, and they receive a small gift. This year, Sissie even got to have chicken "noggets" and "french tries" from "Old McDonalds" for lunch. Oh, some of the words this girl comes up with just make my heart laugh. Thanks Grandma for yummy lunch! We also had some of Sissie's favorite foods for dinner. Pancakes, bacon, and eggs. Breakfast for dinner. Yay! We seriously need to do that more often.

After dinner, we had pink cupcakes with pink frosting and cherries on top that Sissie helped me make and decorate. She loves to help in the kitchen, and they turned out great!
While we were eating them we talked about how they were pinkalicious, just like the ones in the story. And about how much Sissie enjoyed borrowing that book from the library this summer. I think she even asked daddy if he could taker her right then to the library so they could borrow it again. But there was no need to borrow it any longer, because last night Sissie got her very own copy of Pinkalicious.

It's a cute book about a girl who eats too many pink cupcakes and her whole body turns pink! Sissie was so excited about her new book. We had a really fun day celebrating our two-and-a-half year old!

In other news, Bubbas is getting so big. He'll be one in a few short weeks, and is mastering all kinds of new tricks. I even was able to get this one on camera, which is close to a miracle. Anyway, Bubbas has learned to raise his hands when we say "so big", and he's just so dern cute doing it I had to share.

Okay. One more. I can't resist!
