Birthday Parties #2: It's My Party and I'll Cry If I Want To


Second Birthdays give way to unpredictable toddlers.  Who would have ever guessed that all our guests gathered around serenading them Happy Birthday, would be so upsetting?  Especially with something so yummy looking within arms reach.

When my little girl's birthdays roll around, I am often overcome with gratitude for the miraculous gift they are.  We are so humbled and blessed that they are alive and healthy.  They came into this world with an amazing story of God's sovereignty, which I will begin to share with you in a few weeks.  

Getting ready for Anna and Josie's 2nd birthday, I was excited to find Cherrybrook Kitchen's boxed cake mix that is Gluten Free, Egg Free, Dairy Free and Nut Free.  At this point, I had not tried baking very much, without wheat flour or eggs.  So a boxed mix was just the ticket that year.  I found it at a local grocery store, (some Target stores carry this too).  I even found their vanilla frosting mix that worked well.  Thank you Cherrybrook Kitchen for helping me make Anna her very first gluten free, egg free birthday cake!

  1. When I worked at Pier 1 they also sold these cake mixes... I know it sounds weird but they were with some of the kitchen-y stuff. : )
