Last week was Asher's 2nd birthday so we invited LOTS of family and a few friends to help us celebrate. The weather had been really wet all week and the day of our party was to be the same. That morning I prayed for a little break from the rain during our celebration, but was prepared to have 35+ people in our house for the festivities. Around 3 PM, Mike said, "Is that the sun I see?" Sure enough the clouds parted and we were able to have our entire party in our backyard! At one point, I looked up in the sky and could not spot one single cloud, only blue as far as the eye could see. We enjoyed a BBQ, birthday cake and ice cream and awesome company! Then no joke, just as our last guest was leaving the blue sky began to disappear and there were some mean looking dark grey clouds on the horizon. Now who would dare say that Heavenly Father doesn't hear our prayers...even in the case of a 2 year-old's birthday party and his mother's sanity?

The "plair plane" cake and cupcakes. What did people do before they could surf the internet for party ideas?
Asher checking out his new "cracks" (aka geotrax)! Notice the sunlight in this picture...I'm telling you it was amazing.
Asher loves the Hallmark musical cards. Can you tell by the look on his face?

This picture cracked me up. It was if Jeremy, Kyle and Rob were standing guard.
The following are just some funny pictures of Asher. I really can't believe his is two already. He is such a sweet and polite boy. After he opened each of his gifts, he repeatedly thanked the person who gave it to him. I love his mischievous smile, blue eyes and squishy legs.
Happy Birthday Asher
