This was her 1st birthday celebration last year and for some reason it feels like it was only yesterday. Time goes so fast.
Today this little sweetheart is 2 years old. She continually adds joy and laughter to our family.
Tonight her and her family are coming for dinner on the porch. Since she loves ice cream, I decided to create this dessert to serve as her birthday cake. I bought the green plastic bucket with orange shovel at the dollar store. Washed it with hot soapy water, filled it with balls of vanilla ice cream. Drizzled chocolate syrup over the ice cream, covered with graham cracker crumbs(to look like the sand on the beach). I took gummy starfish and placed them on the cracker crumbs. I used a bamboo skewer and a circle cut out of paper, to create the beach umbrella.
Added two candles, put in freezer until it is time this evening to sing "Happy Birthday!" to her. When that time comes, we will give her the orange shovel and let her dig into the bucket of ice cream.
