Happy 2nd Birthday Precious Paige!

Paige's birthday was Feb 27th and it was one of the weirdest days of my life...it all started at 3 in the morning when we got word that a sunami was headed for the hawaiian islands! WHAT THE??? Anyway, they didn't know exactly what was gonna happen but they calculated it would hit Oahu at around 11:30 am! So we packed up food and clothes and I probably shook my head back and forth at least a million times saying "what the heck is going on here" Well, by about 5:30 am most of TVA had gone up to the backside of the Temple where I guess we are supposed to go in an emergency like this, but our whole building just decided to wait and see (have stuff ready though just in case) and get up to the second level of the building if we needed to. SO...in total and complete confusion of my poor little girl's 2nd birthday--we decided to have her little party anyway! It was supposed to be a back yard water/slip and slide party, but it ended up being a funny little red rover/ring around the rosy party with all the kids in our building that stayed home! It ended up being really fun! And the sunami was quite small by the time it hit the islands--so we were totally safe! People around here were kinda disappointed and again I say "WHAT THE" Whoever the heck is disappointed a sunami doesn't hit needs to be hit! HARD!

Nick took this around 8 am--he was taking a "before" picture!
On with the party! Paige loved her day anyway!

My birthday girl! My heart literally goes pitter patter with this little girl!

Digging in the her funny fairy cake I stayed up making half the night--I think I'll stick to buying fancy cakes or I need to grow some more patience! This one cooked my goose!

Did I mention my cute Dad just got here the day before and he got to enjoy all the excitement! I'm glad he was here! AND he got to play some wild Ring Around The Rosy! These kids are adorable!

After games we all had pink cupcakes and pink ice cream cones cause that is what Paige wanted! All the cute girls on the steps in front of our door!

All the birthday party kids except a few! See--not one of them seems stressed about a sunami! All in all it was a fun day, a crazy long as ever day being that it started about 3 am, but it was a fun birthday!
Paige's favorite things she got were; a new baby with the cutest little baby blanket from Gramma Judy, a princess chair (she loves little chairs and stools lately), a strawberry shortcake doll, from Allison, that you can put makeup on (she loves to make things "look so pretty"), her bag of suprises from Momma Diane, and her potty training Barbie babysitter that came with a little sister Barbie that sits on the potty! She got some pretty funny stuff too--like her favorite snacks and some juice! In hawaii-you get neccesities for your birthday! She loved her day! And she couldn't bring her mom and dad more JOY and happiness!

She is so cute. I can't believe our babies are turning 2. They are so fun. Glad the Tsunami didn't hit hard. I'm sure your dad had all things under control. Have fun. Good luck with your new baby.
