Oh Toodles! Tinley is 2!

This past Saturday, we celebrated Tinley's 2nd Birthday with a Minnie Mouse themed party. Now normally, I HATE themed character parties. But, I suppose I'm going to have to get over that being a mommy, because I foresee lot's of cheesy parties in my future... and I'm okay with that. As long as the kiddos are happy, that's all that matters!

I mentioned before how behind I was in the planning department with this party. Normally, I'm on top of things, but life lately has just seemed extra chaotic with the holidays, prepping for baby boy, Justin being out of town for work, etc... Add in a cake disaster, favors falling thru (after I paid for them--that's a whole different story!), a blizzard, and Tinley not feeling 100%, and things seemed as if they couldn't get any worse! But, of course, everything came together and we had a wonderful day. All of our family and friends braved the weather to come celebrate our baby girl. She sure is lucky and loved!

I was a little slack about taking pictures, even though I feel like I took a ton! Anyway, here's a look at Tinley's 2nd Birthday...

I ordered her invites off of Etsy since my girlfriend that normally does everything for us recently had a baby boy. I was pleased with how they turned out, and I even was able to find super cute matching address labels!
Adorable cookies made by the one and only, Wendy Kromer
Favor bags and ears for the kids. My girlfriend made the ears, aren't they perfect?!

Tinley's 1st Birthday party wasn't exactly kid friendly, so this year, I went with all of her favorites: Mickey Mouse chicken nuggets, Mickey Mouse cheese, Minnie Bow-Bites, Pink La-Minnie-Ade, and a Hot Diggity Dog Bar. (Excuse the lack of food pictures!)

I was trying to get a picture of her in her birthday dress. Easier said than done!
All the kids played so well together!
She really enjoyed singing Happy Birthday! She's been singing it for days...
Blowing out her candle!
The best family picture we managed to get...
Sharing her rock candy!
I don't think Gray was sharing his rock candy with anyone...

Sleepy girl after her party.... notice the stickers all over her face! I'd say fun was had by all!
Perhaps it's time to start planning her 3rd Birthday Party... I hope everyone had as good of a weekend as we did. Happy Monday!
