Gearing up for 2!

Cal's 2nd birthday is just around the corner and my hope is to ward off the terrible twos by drowning them in textiles. Just kidding, but a girl can hope.

I started with this birthday banner (Thanks Beth!) though I can't take a good picture of it to save my life. As it's me and three boys in the house I have a feeling this one will get used again (and again and again). We are planning a very low-key birthday celebration with just a few friends and finger food. But, I'm hoping to make Callum a birthday crown and as he has requested cupcakes, some cupcake toppers are in the mental hopper.
This shot also gives a glimpse of our dirt-based yard, which my husband is working to reconstruct. He just planted grass seed that we are watering religiously, fingers crossed. We hope to stake out a vegetable garden area that we can start planting in next year.

Love it, Meliss! I can't believe Cal is TWO! When's the big day?
