2nd Birthday Party

 This past Friday, we celebrated Tehilla's 2nd birthday! It's crazy to fully comprehend that she is 2 years old. Astounding, really! Ron and I kept joking that it's too bad that we couldn't make it a Harry Potter themed party, because she's "the girl that lived." (All you Harry Potter fans will get that.) Thank G-d, it was a lovely Elmo themed party and some of our family and friends were able to join us.

 We made her an Elmo cake. I must give credit where credit is due and mention that I've been teaching Mechal how to bake and cook and taught her how to decorate cakes. She helped ice about half of this cake! I'm very proud of her!

 And, here she is, the little birthday girl. She loved her party and when we showed her the cake, she kept trying to stick her fingers into it. She was very excited!

 One of our closest friends, bought Tehilla this "bimba juke"! She was ecstatic and has been riding on it non-stop. Tzviel spent a lot of time with her, helping her to get used to riding on it.

 Some of our other close friends and their kids bought her a bunch of presents, so she could dress up. She is obsessed!

Most importantly, she went crazy for the cake! We all had a great time at the party. For our family, this was a huge milestone. Our family and friends carried us through the hardest moments of our life and it was so special to be able to celebrate these amazing happy moments. I can't believe that is has been two years, since this little sweetheart was born and since we started the hardest, but most incredible journey of our lives.


  1. The best thing I love about kid’s birthdays is smashing the cake. My daughter is turned 3 this year and we celebrated her special day in a special way at Los Angeles venues. She was looking really adorable and we all had so much fun.


  3. Yeah she actually went crazy for the cake, it feels so good to see kids enjoy like this. One smile and every effort is worth it. The theme looks good and it actually feels new. The cake looks fantastic both on plate and on her face.
