Happy Birthday Charissa!

Our sweet little girl turned 2 this weekend!  Can you believe it?  It's hard to imagine that 2 years have gone by already.  We decided to have a small party with a few family members since I still don't feel ready to host a large gathering.  But we had a great time!  Here are just a few pictures since both my camera died and my mother's camera died.  Great timing, huh?

This was my first time experimenting with fondant.  It was easier than I thought, but I definitely learned a few things that will help me the next time.
CJ loves purses, so it only seemed appropriate to have a purse cake for her.

I only got pictures of her opening one present - a xylophone that Britt and I bought her.  She played with it for a few minutes, and then her Uncle "Russy" played with it for a long time.  Actually, Uncle Russy played with most of her toys so I think next year we should all get him "toddler-appropriate" toys.  
I look at her little face and know it will only be a blink of an eye before I'm hosting her Sweet 16.  Just a reminder for me to treasure every moment with her.
