2nd Birthday Celebrations

It's still so hard to believe that our little girl is two! In some ways I can hardly remember what she was like as a baby, but it also feels like her 1st birthday wasn't that long ago. We had many celebrations for the two-year-old. The whole way to daycare on Addie's birthday she kept saying "I'm two mommy, two, mommy I'm two...".

We had a little party at Addie's daycare. Alexa's birthday was 4 days before so they celebrated together.

Trying to blow out the candle...

Cheese! A lot different than last year when she wouldn't let us put a birthday hat on her. :)

We ate cupcakes and then we stayed for a little bit to play with kids. I took this picture of Jeremy having tea with 4 kids. It was cute!

After the daycare party the three of us went to Chuck E Cheese. We had a fun time as a little family.

Bowling was Addie's favorite game there

We had a family get-together at our house the following Saturday. Kami, Layton and Addie cookin' it up.

Starting to unwrap gifts. Aunt Tiffany and Uncle Dave got her a bubble lawnmower. Addie wanted to play with it right then.

She was spoiled rotten, of course. She got a lot of clothes, which was great, but Addie didn't seem to care too much about that. I know that will change later in life so for now I will take it!

Singing "Happy Birthday"...She sings a long and sways with the music. Too cute!

Blowing out the candles with grandpa

Eating cake with Papaw John

Grammy and Addie...I know Addie has a funny face here. She was eating an M&M after going potty. It looks like she is mad, upset or thinking hard.

Layton and Addie lovin' on each other at the end of the night

Happy Birthday sweet girl! I cannot believe we all have 2 (or almost) year olds. It is going so fast. She is just the cutest little thing. I can see her personality in these photos. Adorable. Hope you are all doing well!

This year I had a great idea for my birthday celebration, except my kids had already picked out whom they wanted to invite. I wanted it be a great party. A nice touch to any celebration is Balloons. Decorating your party area with Balloons can enhance the happy party atmosphere. Now you might first think of helium filled balloons, the latex (or rubber) kind or the Mylar (foil) type. I get a few of those nice Mylar balloons that coordinate to my party theme. For the other balloons, I went with a more economical solution that made a rich party décor look.
For this my friend recommended to me a great company called Life O ' The Party. Since 1980 Life O’ The Party has been the place for Balloons, Décor and Entertainment for every occasion – anytime, anywhere, nationwide.

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade 2009 featured 15,000 of their balloons, while World Cup USA welcomed their balloons on the field at Giants Stadium in New York and Foxboro Stadium in w:st="on"Massachusetts for Opening Day festivities. In the movies, their balloons are featured in the blockbuster “Spiderman 3,” Ron Howard’s movie “Ransom,” “You’ve Got Mail” starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan and Oliver Stone’s latest epic “w:st="on"World Trade Center.”
