Yep, you read that right!
Miss P is officially 2 years old!
I have no idea how that is even possible but it is true! Time sure is flying!
Saturday was her actually birthday and we had her party that day as well.
I decided that I was for sure going to throw her a party about 2 1/2 weeks earlier so I really had to get my butt in gear quickly!
I went with the Ice Cream Party theme and I think it turned out rather cute if I do say so myself! 🙂
Here are the invitations I created.
I then created a few other items that coordinated with the invitations.
Here is the birthday girl all ready to party.
My mom created the ice cream shirt for her and I created the tutu at the last minute.
I had to wake her up from nap for her party so she wasn’t in a super fabulous party mood but she eventually warmed up.
With her daddy.
And notice her puffy, bruised eye?! Earlier in the morning she smacked her eye on the corner of Travis’ nightstand and it swelled and bruised immediately. This girl is so accident prone! lol
We grilled out some hamburgers and hot dogs and then I made pasta salad, potato salad, and a fruit salad as sides.
Everyone enjoyed just hanging out in the pretty weather we were having that day.
It definitely took her a while to get in the party mood.
P got a hold of the camera and wanted to take some pics.
Here is her shot of Miss S just hanging out.
I was thrilled that Miss S let other people hold her and didn’t freak out so I could enjoy the party too.
Another shot that P took of Miss S’ boyfriend Mr. J with his daddy.
It’s her party and she’ll cry if she wants too!
I took the camera away from her and she was not very pleased.
We asked if she wanted to open gifts and she took a be line to the house.
Everyone was very gracious with the gifts and she had a blast opening presents.
She wanted to open every single thing as soon as she opened them so it was a little difficult to get her to just put it aside and keep going.
She got some new dolls, a few fun kitchen items, a bubble machine, some dress up clothes, and a camera all her own!
After she opened her gifts, she tried to share some of her toys.
She tried to give Miss S some toy horses and then Mr. J one of her dolls.
And we ended the day with ice cream and cupcakes before just hanging out some more.
We actually remember to sing Happy Birthday to her this year and give her a candle! Yay! She wasn’t so sure what was happening but when we told her to blow out the candle, she did!
It was a fun day and luckily it stayed sunny and gorgeous out until the party was over and then the sky opened up!
I still can’t believe that she is 2!!!
Stay tuned for all the fun details on the party itself!
I will have a post next week on just the decor and then some posts on the projects I created for the party. 🙂
