Anna had a milk moustache photo station for everyone to take their pictures. Here's me and Billa!
She planned on having quite a few cookies for the party and asked me to bake up some red velvet whoopie pies and some sugar cookies in the shape of the number 2 for Abby's party. Abby apparently adores red velvet and I was excited to try a new recipe for them at the party. I have a recipe that is pretty good, but after baking some chocolate whoopies for my mom's birthday, I wanted to tweak the chocolate recipe and see if I couldn't duplicate the texture with red velvet. They came out fantastic!
The cookie buffet...so many tasty treats!
For the number 2's, I did half of them with solid cookie monster blue and the other half with blue sprinkles. Doing these brought back memories of my daughter's second birthday last year, in which I did a Sesame Street theme and gave away sugar cookie S's, 2's, and Elmo's as favors.
My daughter and I enjoyed visiting with lots of our friends that we had not seen in some time. The party was so much fun because we got to eat my favorite thing: cookies! They also happen to be one of Abby's favorite things too!

Happy 2nd birthday Abby Lu! May you have many more!
