Little A's birthday just happens to be Christmas Eve. I've found Christmas the last couple of years to be a lot less interesting now that I have a little one's birthday to celebrate the day before. This year we had balloons, a taco bar, and a tasty cake with ice cream. It's no small feat to come up with something everyone can eat - vegetarians, the lactose intolerant, and the gluten-free. Tacos just happen to be A's favorite so we had corn tortillas, beans, rice, and a myriad of taco toppings and fillings. Delish.

She got a lot of good presents. Good as in the day after the party she's still playing with them and having a great time.
I knit the sweater, Prudence, from Rowan Miniature Classics for her second birthday and while I'm very proud of it she's a bit reluctant to wear it. I managed to wrangle her into it for about 10 minutes on Christmas so I could snap some photos. Let me tell you, wrangling a toddler for pictures is not the easiest thing to do when there are people and presents and food around. Happy Birthday, Little A!


  1. What a fabulous post and picture of my little angel. Happy number two and Merry Christmas Audrey!

  2. Beautiful sweater for a beautiful girl!

  3. Happy Birthday little A, my B-day buddy! Lovely sweater! And we always make tacos for parties for the same reason.

  4. The sweater turned out so cute! Well worth the challenge of toddler-wrestling for a photo.

  5. Happy birthday kiddo! It sounds like you had a great party :) That sweater is pretty awesome! I'd wear it all the time if someone made me one, LOL.
