Almost one year ago we made a similar batch of cupcakes.
To celebrate Vivienne’s second birthday.
A birthday that she celebrated half a world away from us.
And this year?
She is with us, helping make, and eat, cupcakes to celebrate her new little sister.
Not so surprisingly, the entire crew was happy to participate in making celebratory Poppy cakes.
I mean, cupcakes? Frosting in a can? Chocolate chips and sprinkles?
To celebrate our littlest one’s first birthday?
What’s not to love?
Some of us spent more time eating.
Some of us spent more time decorating.
But we all celebrated, in our own way, how blessed we are.
Now to just get through the next 4 – 6 months before we travel to meet this little one…
with small children inquiring daily, “when is my baby sister coming home?”
Penelope has captured us all.
Okay, maybe some of us more than others.
Happy Birthday, Pip-squeak!
