Celebrating Early

Sierra is almost 2 and since we didn't do a big party last year, we decided to invite all her little friends and do it up right. Celebrating almost a month early to ensure all the grandparents and friends could be there we had pools, sprinklers, cute party favors and a fabulous cake made by the best Mommy in the entire world...ME! (ok, besides my mom!)

Check out all the fun!

We grilled out so we had hamburgers and hot dogs galour. The kiddies had their own table complete with their goodie buckets and all the needed supplies for a 2 yr old party: funky cup, sunglasses, bubbles, and candy watches.

Here we have all the party-goers:

Ms. Sophia.


Hottie Ollie

JakobAnnaliese
Haydon

Eli
Solei (Sierra calls her Lolei)
Hannah Bannan Haymore
Kate
Parker & Lincoln And where are my pictures of Molly & Abby!?!?!!?!?!?!!?!

Sierra had a blast. Lots of Hugs and Kisses were shared - I swear she hugged the girls too!


What can I say? My kid is a lover, not a fighter!







Nice Speedo Eli!

I was excited for the presents but my not so material girl daughter really just liked the paper...still! She would tear off each little piece and everyone wanted to help her, so they did!









She has lots of helpful friends.


The best part, I have to say, was her really super duper cute cake. I wanted to be creative and fun and make Sierra's cake but I also didn't want it to just be a regular cake, I wanted it to be amazing! So I didn't hit amazing, but I go pretty close. Check out my marshmellow fondant super duper cool cake!





It was a fabulous party! We had tons of fun! I can't wait to celebrate on her real birthday, July 15!

I think the cake was pretty amazing! Kate is still obsessed with drinking out of her cup. We can't decide if it's the cup she loves or if she just keeps hoping pink lemonade will come out :)
The party and Sierra were so cute! I loved how she told everyone to watch out for the crazy sprinklers. I wish Kate had a summer birthday so I could copy your party :)
