Party Peeps

Mati Claire had her birthday party Saturday! I can't believe she's 2 already! Her vocabulary has exploded in the last few days. Every day she picks up at least 3 new words. Unbelievable. Anyway, I figured I owed it to her 2 years of age to put her hair in 2 pigtails and give her a big double-layer cake! The party was safari-themed...hence the animal print outfits. Here's a few pictures that sum everything up:

Finally feeling better today! This is the first day in exactly 2 weeks that I have felt good. Maybe it's all the oreo balls and food that I ate over the weekend! Let me tell you - I fell off the wagon hard! After the party ended, we headed straight to the lake to celebrate the 4th of July! It was great to have both sides of the family there! Fireworks were awesome, too! Already looking forward to next year! My sister took some really good pictures at the lake so I will post some of those later (or you can see them on her Facebook).
We enjoyed having my family here to visit for the past week. MC looked depressed this morning when she realized everyone had left. She quit the potty training cold turkey! Did it for 4 days and said she had enough. Won't even go in the bathroom now. I knew it was too good to be true. She told me she didn't want to waste time in the potty...just wanted to party with her people.

What a fun theme for her party! (Rebecca has a dress just like MC's!) That's a great pic of you, your sis, and your mom. I know it was so special to have all your family in one place for the day.
