Morgan is 2!!!

It was such a busy weekend---Morgan turned 2!!! I wish I would have had more time and energy to do more for her, but I guess you do what you can do.

Her actually birthday was Saturday, but we didn't celebrate it until Sunday with our family. We did however go to Thanksgiving Point's Scarecrow days. It was fun, Morgan got her face painted, played in the grass, and we even rode on the train!!!
Happy birthday is on one cheek, Elmo on the other.

Sunday's party was quite simple, but grandma found ways to make it special. She bought red helium filled balloons and with construction paper made Elmo faces on them. Grandma also knew that I wanted to make Morgan Elmo cupcakes so she found some online and I tried to copy what was done--I don 't think they came out that bad did they?

Thanks to Aunt Shell and Uncle Chad, Morgan got her favorite gift--a dancing Elmo doll--he does a song and dance similar to the YMCA, but its ELMO. However, she also liked her tea set, hopefully Grace will let me find time to play with Morgan. I can't ever remember playing things like that, growing up with two brothers but I think it would be fun.

It amazing to see how fast time flies. It feels like Morgan was just born the other day. She is a joy to be around, from the time she was a month old she started smiling and hasn't stopped. Now she is constantly chatting and telling us what she wants and doesn't want. Today for dinner she named off all the foods she wanted to eat except for what we were giving her. Oh how I love her. We really are blessed to have her in our family and Gracie is lucky to have her as an older sister!!

Fun times! What a great two year old. I love how you put a positive spin on the fact that she was listing off all the foods she wanted except for what you were feeding her. You're great! I'm sure you did just exactly what she needed--gave her a weekend for her. Plus amazing Elmo cupcakes. I'm very impressed! Now I need to figure out what we're doing for Evan this coming Saturday. :)

If we were there I would have had Leighton sing Happy Birthday to Morgan. It is pretty hilarious. Happy Birthday, Morgan.
