malcolm's party

on sunday afternoon, we had a small family get-together at our house, to celebrate malcolm's second birthday. last year we had family and lots of friends over, but this year we wanted to keep it more simple. he already got so much great stuff for christmas, so we didn't think it was necessary to have a big party this year. plus times are tough, and we didn't want anyone to feel obligated to buy him things that he may not even need. it was a nice little low-key party, and we all had a great time. we ate some food, opened presents, had cake, and played outside in the snow. here are a bunch of photos from sunday, taken by grandpa dan and myself. enjoy!

i made tons of snicker doodles!

garrett and malcolm

the cake was made at a locally owned bakery in cary, and it was delicious (as always!)

he was so excited for the cake, and loved us singing happy birthday to him

and he did a great job blowing out the candles

vegan cake coma, haha!

brushing his teeth, while sitting on the potty

after all the gifts and cake, he was fading fast. grandpa read him a book, but he wouldn't nap, so we all went outside to sled in the street/driveway.

alanna was cruising down the hill on her hot pink tube, so she missed being in this photo. bummer.

he rode the pony down the driveway...

...and we also sent him down in a cardboard box! haha!
