In the Hilosky House, we always celebrate half birthdays! We don't go crazy - but just do a little something special for each girl! It's something that John and I decided to start when Lacie turned 6 months old. I was so excited to have made it to that milestone, and I really wanted to celebrate. We had immediate family over and ate cupcakes and took lots of pictures! Now it is a tradition for John and I to celebrate each of our girl's half birthdays!
Last Thursday, February 19th, was Lacie's half birthday! The fact that my oldest baby is 3 1/2 is just plain crazy! I put together a collage of Lacie on each of her half birthdays! Look at how much she changed from 1 1/2 (top right) to 2 1/2 (bottom left)!
John had to work late on Thursday, so we celebrated as a family of five on Friday night! We got pizza (Eggplant Pizza because that is everyone's favorite plus it's Lent). Then we had yellow cake with my chocolate buttercream icing! Seriously, this is one of my favorite cake combos and the chocolate icing is amazing and so simple to make!
I normally make a fancy half cake, but things were a little hectic this year so I just made a sheet cake! Lacie didn't mind!
