Live Blogging Myrna's Second Birthday!

We enjoyed some gourmet cupcakes this afternoon, starting the Second Birthday celebrations. Myrna was uninterested in napping after lunch and soon cupcake eating won over (now at 4 pm the sugar crash has ended and she is in the midst of a very late nap - we may be partying until the wee hours tonight). She wasn't really quite sure what to make of the candle preparations at first.
But then she was quite interested
She then opened up presents from Mom and Dad
and she was very excited about her new Pippi doll.
Big Birthday Hugs! More photos are on her picasa page too.

The first of the birthday celebrations

Today the Birthday celebrations began. Myrna had her afternoon play group and we celebrated not one, but two birthdays. Myrna's new best friend, Elizabeth, turns three on Thursday, so we got to sing two rounds of "Happy Birthday!" Elizabeth brought balloons, and we baked cupcakes (and by bake I mean we added water to a cupcake mix). They were both a hit! Tomorrow we are planning on gourmet cupcakes, though Myrna will only get one, instead of the two she helped herself to today. Here are the cute Birthday Girls.

Father's Day

Sweden celebrated Father's Day this last weekend - which meant Myrna and I got to buy some shirts and sweaters for Chris on Saturday. Sunday we checked out the new
Robert Henke exhibit Transition Machine at Färgfabriken. The plan was for Myrna to fall asleep on the tram ride there, but she was just way too excited to be on the "choo choo." However it was dark in the gallery and we sat on a comfy couch, so about two minutes later she was sound asleep. She did wake up in time for treats and coffee at Vurma.
