Happy Birthday!!!

Preston turns TWO today!
Mommy made him a Peanut Butter Carrot Cake. It was the first cake Mommy has ever made from scratch! How special was that!
Preston got two new stuffies, Underdog & Jack, plus lots of yummy treats from Mommy, Daddy and Uncle Allen.

“aww…I can’t wait, mommy!”

Yum! Yum!
(no, Preston did not get to finish the entire cake…)

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRESTON!! I sorry I didn’t get on here fast enough. Your cake looks great, carrot cake is my daddy’s favorite, he makes them from scratch all the time, but doesn’t share much with me cause they have LOTS of sugar. Maybe I can talk him into making me one of these. Amazing what big brown puppy eyes can get ya! Well, Happy Birthday!! Maybe someday I will meet your dad since he’s so close. How long until you and your mom get to come to Boston too??

    Happy Birthday, Preston! I heard 2 year old is a very important age when we get more mature and cause less troubles for our mommies. We’ll see, huh? Your cake looks very yummie. I am already licking my lips by just looking at it. Hope your party was great.
