Hazel opened presents every day for a week.  Suppose that’s what happens to kids with Christmas due dates!  We had a jewelry theme for her birthday party, and a few friends came to join us for some brunch nibbles and cake.

Miles helped me bling the box, and friends brought jewels to fill it up.

She is still learning the art of less is more, so she put on all her necklaces at once.

Her only cake request was “little fishies”.  Rainbow goldfish did the job. The cake was Moosewood’s Orange Cake, and I made a Orange Cream Cheese frosting with a little splash of Cointreau.

She found the fire atop the cake a bit scary.

But the candle was a perfect frosting delivery tool.

Our happy little girl is two!
