Gigi's Turns 2

On February 19th Gigi turned 2 years old! Adam's parents and younger brother Dave came to Portland to celebrate with us. Since Gigi has been obsessed with Ariel ever since we went to Disneyland, I threw her a Little Mermaid party complete with an Ariel cake. I made the decorations with the help of my mother-in-law (thank you, or I would've been up all night!).
 the birthday banner letters are on little clam shells!
 i thought these looked very sea urchin-ish!
Gigi's Ariel cake which she loved and still talks about! And no, I did not make it (maybe next year).
 blowing out the candles
opening up presents
playing with her new car from her grandparents
Gigi on her new trike with Ariel, I think she's a happy girl!
 having fun with Grandpa
 Grandma, Grandpa and uncle Dave - so glad you guys made the trip to Portland, it was great having you celebrate with us!

What a darling girl and fun looking birthday party! You are so creative. I love how you do monthly pictures in her chair. What a great way to show her growing up.
