Weekend Love: Birthday Party!

Carmen's birthday weekend was a huge success!!  We got a good nap and the party went really smoothly!  I'm happy that all went well!  Thanks again for all those that came and helped celebrate my baby girl turning 2!!  Now for some pictures since that's the best way to show off the birthday fun!

Her party was a Tinkerbell party!  We bought all the decorations since honestly this year I have not had the energy or motivation to make them.  My sister's MIL made the cake and it came out beautiful!  And since we were doing Tinkerbell and Miss Carmen's Halloween costume was tinkerbell we put her in her tink costume for the party and she loved it!  How cute is she?!?!
We had to stop at the grocery store that morning and since it was her birthday I let her pick out a balloon...even though they had a Tinkerbell balloon, she saw this HUGE Minnie Mouse and had to have it instead! :)   We had several crafts for the 2 kids that came.  I cute out little paper crowns for them and they got to decorate them, as well as some other drawing activities.  I wish I had planned a couple more game type stuff but the 2 girls still had a lot of fun together!

Her daddy and I have been practicing her signing 2 for weeks now and just this past week she really got it!  She was so cute saying and putting up her 2 little fingers!
 Blowing out candle is fun! :)
She got a lot of great presents, including the adopted Teddy Bear Genna she is sitting next to that was from her friend Miss Thea and the new apron her Aunt G made her!
That morning before her party, we hung out with her Grandma up in OH and she got to open her first present which was an awesome kitchen!  Carmen was so excited to both see her Grandma and to open the kitchen!  She had fun playing with it all weekend and I see this being one of her favorite toys.
I really enjoyed watching Carmen celebrate her birthday! She has grown so much in the last year and she is such a sweet loving 2 yr old!  Can't wait to see what this next year brings for her and watching her learn to be a big sister!  Love her and feel blessed that I get to be her momma!

Happy Weekend Love!  Thanks for stopping by!
