Happy 2nd Birthday Emily Grace!

Happy 2nd birthday Emily Grace! This is extremely belated but Happy Birthday little princess! She turned 2 on June 27. We had a sweet treats party where we invited all the kids to come decorate their own cupcakes. It was quite an afternoon!

Happy Girl!

Daddy, EGU and Mommy (Bailey and Kiwi had to make an appearance in the family picture too)

Getting ready to blow out the candles- Grandma Dance made the giant cupcake!

The singing startled her- poor little thing. I couldn't help but giggle a little at the fact that she cried on her birthday. It's her party and she'll cry if she wants to!

Whoops- Mouth full of cookie- she was so cute: she kept dipping her cookies in the icing on her giant cupcake.

This is so Emily Grace. A little princess, who doesn't sit at the table but helped herself right onto the table and had herself a cookie or ten... We should have made her get down but this was just too cute.

She loves balloons! PS-here is an idea for an easy outdoor table for kids: We used four cynder blocks with a piece of plywood on top and wrapped it in wrapping paper. It was easy to assemble, sturdy (lay the cynder blocks on their sides, not upright), low to the ground for little ones, and quick clean up!

We didn't get a good picture of it but we had a tent in the back yard and the inside was filled with balloons. Emily Grace loved it!

Home grown Hydrangeas- it was a last minute touch that really worked out!

This was so easy- I found a similar one on Etsy for about $30. But you know me- I can make that- and I did! Scrap book paper, a color printer, some ribbon from the dollar bin at Michaels and a scrapbook circle cutter and voila! And the nice thing is we can use it over and over. :)

And the grand finale: a pink hot wheels mini cooper- just her size but not her idea of fun right now. She has to grow into it- the loud noise it makes when you push the gas pedal scared her and she climbed out while it was still going! So, little Avary Anne tested it out for Emmy Gu. She's such a sweetie and she had a big time in that car!
Happy birthday little princess! I hope you enjoyed as much as we did! Love Mommy and Daddy!!
