Happy Bee Day To My Little Honey

Lady Bug theme for her 1st birthday, bumble bees for her 2nd... Box Elders for her 3rd?!  Maybe she won't like bugs as much as she gets older.  Right now she's quite infatuated and I have to acknowledge every. single. bug. she lays her eyes on.

I ain't no cake decorating expert, that's for sure, but I thought a bumble bee cake would be a cinch.  It wasn't.  For some reason I had extreme difficulties and my bumblee looked like a big chocolate turtle.  Even my frosting went south and I had to re-frost over almost the entire thing the next day it looked so awful.  My dad looked in the fridge and said "OH MY LANDS".  He was slightly shocked when it ended up looking cute like this (so was I!):

Just over an hour before guests arrived for the bee day bash, I convinced mom to make some bumble bee cutouts for the kids.  We just used a large cardboard box I had thankfully stored in the garage and yellow and black paper plates.  The kids were so cute as little bees!!
The Little Queen Bee posed like a sweet honey. :)  The pendant banner is just construction paper, painted with letter stencils, and strung together with white string.  Very easy!  If I hadn't waited until the last minute, I would have done some fun polka dot paper, etc behind each triangle!  Oh well.  My motto is "Keep it simple, Stupid".  
She wanted me to read each card to her!
There's gotta be SOME WAY I can freeze this little darling right at this age!
Grandma Ann found the cutest little bumble bee outfit for our little honey and I painted a black button with yellow strips and hot glued it into the middle of a yellow flower and then onto a clip for her hair.  I would have put some more detail into it, but I was finishing it up just as the first guests were arriving.  I'm somewhat of a last-minute-lady.  Drives my mom bonkers!  
 It's hard to believe two years have passed!  I am so thankful to God for blessing us with this spunky, fiesty, sweet, darling of a daughter.  Thank you, Lord!!!!
