I know its kind of dorky but I love to celebrate the kids 1/2 birthday. I don't do it every year I just do it when they are 6 months old. And besides who doesn't like an excuse to bake a cake? Brynn's 1/2 birthday fell right when Wes was out of town on work so we waited tell this week to celebrate. I didn't think baking a cake with just me around to eat it was a very good idea! So we had presents, just an outfit and a new toy. Makenna was really sweet and colored her a picture. But Brynn really loved it and tried to eat the gift bags and she even tried to dig into her cake! I guess it's kind of mean of me to make a cake for her and not let her eat it! That's okay she'll have her big day in 6 more months. I just hope she's as anxious to dig into it then!
