Carter's birthday

**Caution--picture overload**

So my baby turned 2 on Saturday and here is the post about his big day! In our house, we start all birthdays with a pancake breakfast, a candle on top and the birthday song to go with it. Carter loved the candle part so we relit it and he blew it out about ten times. =)




His Pooh pool party was that afternoon. We had it at our neighborhood clubhouse and it was perfect. Just immediate family and some friends that are like family were there. We ate pizza, chips, watermelon and cake. Carter had the best time!  He was in and out of the pool and "talking" to everyone.

Here is the birthday boy before his guests arrived...
The five of us...
The cake and cupcakes...

Each table had one of his two year photos on it with a Pooh bear centerpiece. Here are a few of them...








  Time to sing to the big birthday boy. He loved being sang to--he smiled , laughed, played shy and did a great job of blowing out those two candles.



 Then he got to eat the Pooh Bear off of the cake. I sampled it too. It was made of fondant and it was good.
He loved making a mess with his cupcake...


Here is the birthday boy with his fabulous grandparents...
