Livie's 2nd birthday party was a success!!! I'm still exhausted from the morning, but it was all so worth it. I'll write more later, but for now I'm just gonna post pics and let them speak for themselves while I nurse my toddler party hangover!!!
These chocolate Elmos lasted all of 30 minutes in the sun. It was 80 degrees here today and these little guys melted! :( So sad...lesson learned though! Never put chocolate in the sun!!!! Bad bad mommy!!! The kiddos were sent home with their very own goldfish. The parents weren't too thrilled, but the kids sure were!!! :)

I made this photo standee for Bailey's 2nd birthday (3 years ago, before I had two kids and my elbows deep in cake). When I brought it out to her party she had a meltdown...crying saying "You cut Uuurn-ie! You cut Uuurn-ie!!!" (Ernie) He was her favorite character and when she discovered his face was removed from the bunch she was devestated. :( It was terrible and I had to put the whole thing away for the party so that she'd stop crying. All that work for nothing! So, you can imagine I was very excited to pull it out this time and leave it out! Livie's favorite character is Elmo so she had no issues w/ Ernie being "cut".
And here is Bailey who is finally OK with using this photo standee...

This Elmo costume is another homemade by mama party addition, again, before I had two kids and all that good stuff.
