Claire's Two!

Our Claire Bear turned two years old. I can't believe how fast this last year flew by. Her birthday didn't start out too busy. We wanted to make a two-shaped cake but wasn't sure how and couldn't find any pans to help so Scott put together his own with cardboard and tin foil. I think it actually turned out really good. We decorated it with yellow frosting and sprinkles because Claire is obsessed with everything yellow these days (she only wants to use the yellow plate, or yellow spoon, etc.).

We had our family in the area come over to celebrate with us that evening. We had pizza and presents and cake and ice cream. :) Claire loved the attention and ripped open her presents with gusto! :)

I guess with two birthday celebrations this summer right before hers, she knew exactly what to do when it came to blowing out her candles. :)

and eating cake...

We also had a photo shoot earlier in the week. I think it turned out pretty well. Here are some of our favorites. :)


  1. Happy birthday, Claire!! She is so dang cute! Good job with the cake.

  2. She really is Super Cute!!! Happy Birthday Claire! Very creative cake pan, too. Was it hard to do?

    1. Scott said once he figured out what he was doing it wasn't too difficult. My biggest worry was getting it out, but we used plenty of cooking spray and I pretty much cut off the "pan" after it had cooked. :)
