Celebrating Helen

We had a little celebration for Helen's 2nd birthday yesterday. It was a fun afternoon of just the four of us. We had lanterns, cake, sparklers and gifts, I think Helen is beginning to really like this thing called birthday.  She wore a dress my mother had made for me when I was around her age. She kept it all these years just in case.

 I love how her personality is in full bloom these days. She's so talkative and curious. Of course with that comes no shortage of spunk and attitude. I'm excited to see what this next year brings and to get to see her personality even more.

We got a few photos before the rain fell, but sadly Von couldn't stay up long enough for this part. I hope you enjoy. We sure had a wonderful time!
