You'll just have to believe me when I say our family party for Clara's birthday was great. She looked darling in her new birthday dress, her home-made Oreo ice cream cake was yummy, she absolutely loved all the presents she got, and having so many family members around at once is always a treat. You'll just imagine the whole scene because the dozens of pictures I took of the event are, well, no where. I discovered a few hours after the party that my SD card wasn't in my camera! And as much fun as we had there's just no way to re-inact the whole thing, so all I have to remember Clara's 2nd b-day party by is a single picture of the decorations I made and hung yesterday morning. Bummer! I'll still take a few pix of her tomorrow because that's her actual birthday, but unfortunately I don't really have anything planned (other than her 2 year check-up and shots). Brian was kind enough to say "we'll get some pictures next year" which somehow really doesn't make me feel better.
