Party Plans

I guess I figured out what I am going to do for Carleigh's 2nd birthday coming up. On the 26th, which is a Saturday, we'll have a small party (if that's what you wanna call it) at our house with some cake and then go release balloons at the cemetery. I decided to do something this day in case any of our family and/or friends wanted to join us.

Then on the 28th, we'll do something just as a family. I'm not sure what yet but I'm sure we'll go out to the cemetery at some point.

Now I just need to decide what kind of cake I want to get. I don't want it to be as big as last year's cake because honestly, that would be a whole lot of cake left over! But I sure did love the cake and I do want it to be beautiful again but just not as big.

I for sure want to order it from the same place because the cake was soooooo good. One of the best cakes I've ever had. So I'll have to be looking online for some cake ideas. Plus I'll need to get some balloons ordered. I think I'll order them from the same place I did last year because the people were so very nice.

So, if you are interested in joining us on the 26th just send me an email and let me know.

le gateau était vraiment magnifique. Vous en aviez un aussi en forme d'ailes ?
Si vous fêtes un laché de ballon ou un geste symbolique, je serais heureuse de le faire d'ici.
J'avais pensée à quelque chose :
Que chaqu'une de vos amies blogueuses on achête une bougie à la couleur de Carleigh. Essayer de faire une chaine de 48 heures ou a chaque coin du monde une lumière pour votre fille.

Your idea is very nice. I love that you have found a semi tradition in a way to remember her. I love that you try to include the family even with such a private matter. I'm sure that when you do have that day it will go very smoothly and you'll have lots of pictures to share. lol

Such a lovely idea... and her cake from last year is just beautiful :) Great that you can celebrate it with others - I don't think any of our friends or others would have been up for that on our little ones first birthday. Thinking of you all xoxo
