The Candy Party

We had Jules big birthday bash this past Saturday. Jules really isn't into anything at the age of hobbies, no major favorite tv show...but the girl LOVES her some candy! So...a candy-themed party seemed very appropriate for my little sweet tooth! We had lots of cake, cookies, and candy!!!! I also decided that the party should take place at the park since that is Jules' favorite place to be. The party was a huge success, because really...what 2 year old wouldn't be thrilled with that kind of spread! The crowd included: Mimi & Papaw, CC & B-Pa, The Dales, Uncle Caleb, Aunt Carol, Ms. Cheryl, The Preisslers, Jo, and Ella & Ms. Tess. Here are pictures from my sweet girl's sweet birthday!

And yes, I work at a preschool....which is why I can make such cool signs for a birthday party! I know you were wondering!!! :) Working at a preschool definitely has its perks!

We ended up opening presents at home. The wind was really crazy that day and I just could picture tissue paper blowing all over the park!!

She was an old pro at opening gifts! She tore right into it!!!

This is the gift that Jillian picked out and wrapped for her little sister

Jules new baby from Ms. Cheryl! She loves this baby!!! It cries, coos, and laughs. The girls love it and Jules doesn't want Jillian to have it at all!

What a sweet Mama!

Okay, finally I can get on with the rest of our lives now that the birthday party is complete! I can now say (for the next 2 months) that I have a 2 year old and a 3 year old! :)
