Happy Birthday Munckin! (A Letter to Kiddo)

(My little girl turned TWO today, can you believe that?)

Happy birthday Miss M!

Two years ago you showed up and turned my life upside down, I can't believe how the time has flown by! You made me realize just how dull and boring my life had become and set me to changing things. I love you, my little keiki.

What a crazy day, we'd planned a big luau party to celebrate but we woke up to 6 inches of SNOW! (Did you wish for snow for your birthday? Someone was obviously listening!) Around 6am the power went out and didn't come back until midnight. And it kept snowing. And snowing. And snowing.

We had to cancel the party but I don't think you minded too much. We got to have fun getting the fire going and watching the tree branches break and fall from the weight of the snow. It was rather spooky to hear the groaning and cracking, and then see a big limb come tumbling down. We even drove into town at one point to see how everyone else was doing. The snow was so wet and heavy it destroyed many of the decorative plum trees (which had just started to blossom) splitting them right down the middle when opposite branches became filled with snow.

Your Nana and Papa had come over from NE Oregon to be here for your big day and we were so excited to set out your presents for you to wake up to. I know you will love the new rocking horse (once you're able to get in the saddlemit is huge!) and you're already cooking up a storm with the toy kitchen. We weren't able to bake a cake but hopefully the strawberries and whip cream were a good substitute (I probably used too much whip cream but it was the only way to get the candles to stay upright!).

I still can't believe you're two years old. You're running around this place like a sugar-crazed Tasmanian devil, you've got the cat, your Dad and your Papa all wrapped around your little finger, and you are already a social butterfly, just like your Dad. I love you kiddo-don't grow up too fast OK?

Hugs and loves
