So the first birthday I planned when the girls were like 6 months old…this birthday I didn’t really start until about a month and a half ago. I had been thinking about it but no actual concert planning. I don’t know why I choose owls but I have been seeing a lot of really cute owl stuff lately so I am sure that helped. I started off by finding the perfect invitation. Bear with me I like party planning! If you are ever in the market for invites/birth announcements/thank you notes, look no further! Mellissa from MJ Corder Designs is your girl! I guess I had something in mind when I went out looking she made two wonderful invites and I got to choose. Completely happy with my decision I went back to her website one day soon after and she had made a new owl invite (separate from the ones she had made me) I fell in love with it. It was perfect, and after seeing it I knew this was it! She also made our Christmas cards!
I also need to say that Texas had a blizzard/ice storm the week of the party and we weren’t always sure we were going to be able to have it. In the end we decided that the weather was good enough and everyone’s kids were going crazy being stuck in the house a whole week…hey we are from TX, we aren’t used to this! Some of our friends weren’t able to come and we missed you all!!!! You know who you are!
This is picture overload. Chris knows I like a TON of pictures and he sure delivered at this party…it was so hard to pick!
Let’s start with the details…
I got all the printable decor at Dimple prints…
The Favor table…the sign says…Look whoooo’s grown so much. There are pictures from the girls first two years!
Ok, so when my Mom heard I was doing a owl theme we quickly decided that we needed a tree for the owls…I know it is a little much for a two year old party but hey, oh well! My Mom and Dad were pretty much the ones behind the making of the tree.
This was taken after the party. I love the way it turned out!
We had pictures for the kids to color…Kinley was testing it out before the party.
Playing with Playdoh!
I wish I would have gotten pictures of people with the girls but they were having too much fun playing to stop for pictures! I mean it is their party…
The Activity tables…(all the little kids were bouncing!)
The bounce house…Originally we had gotten a big bounce house but with snow on the ground we decided that a indoor bounce house would be perfect. Luckily our good friends the Steece quads just happen to have one and they let us borrow it! Thanks guys, we were SOOOO sad that you couldn’t come to the party though!
The girls ask about Emmy ALL the time! They just LOVE her!
The real life picture!
Our family! We lost a bow for a little while!
My right hands during this party! My mom should be in this picture too. She is always right beside me when I plan a party willing to do whatever. Like build a tree! I couldn’t do it with out you mom! SO mad I didn’t get any pictures with the girls and my parents at the party! Elayna, my cousin (to the right of me) she is the baker and we have been practicing all the recipes for about three weeks. I can’t even tell you how much butter and sugar we used to put this party on! I love you girl and miss having you around all the time! Aunt Becca, she drove up from Houston in the ice to be at the girl’s party a day early. She is always there and helping with anything and everything! We love Aunt “bucket” as K calls her!
The girls were spoiled and got so many things! They got two VERY sweet scrapbooks from their older cousins that will be such a special thing to them when they are older! Both of the scrapbooks brought tears to my eyes, knowing they have such sweet cousins that love them BOTH so much! Madelyn and Kinley love you all too!
Madelyn got more into the unwrapping. Kinley just wanted to play with the first thing she opened.
Grandma,(chris’s mom) got the girls tricycles this birthday! They really like them and had lots of fun getting pushed around by everyone. Not to much longer and they will reach the pedals and playing in the driveway! Aren’t they so Cute!?
WOW, if you are still here I applaud you! I had NO idea it would be this long when I started. I was blown away with all the people that came out in the conditions that we had that day. Makes me happy to know how many people LOVE my girls, and us. We love you all and are so thankful to each and everyone of you! Happy Birthday girls!
