The Final 2nd Birthday Party

So last, but assuredly not least, we had a third 2nd birthday for Mags with our PA family and friends.
And since it was two weeks before we went to Disney, we did the Mickey theme one more time.
We had so much fun and were happy to have a lot of people to help us celebrate!

Maggie's betrothed...our friends called dibs before I even got pregnant...looks promising...LOL

As I said, a great time!

Hope you're having a wonderful day!!!

Sesame Street 2nd Birthday

Hello there!

Catching up here....

On Sunday, July 29th we were in MD visiting family and we celebrated Mag's birthday with them.  We decided on a Sesame Street theme, since she loves that almost as much as Mickey.  It was a beautiful day and a lot of people were able to come and help us celebrate.  Unfortunately, I was so busy catching up with some people that I hadn't seen in awhile, so I didn't take as many pics as I should have....But here is what I did get....
It's Unka Ben!

Hanging out with Grammy and Aunt Lauren at the park on Saturday

Oh the silliness!!!

Party Time!!!
Ready for some yummy cake!

Overall a great time for all!!!

Hope you're having a great day!!!

Hey Everyone! So sorry for the crickets, but things have been a little hectic around here lately.  I have some things in the hopper that I hope pan out, and I hate to sound cryptic, but I don't want to jinx it.

So anyways, a ton has happened since the last update.....
I have two more 2nd birthday parties to share, Mag's first haircut, and our beach trip this past weekend.
But I am really drained and exhausted right now, so I will write those fun posts up over the week and hopefully have them scheduled for when we are in.....DISNEY!  Cause, oh yeah, only 4 more days until that happens.
So while I am doing laundry, checking off lists and packing, I leave you with this little gem....

Monday afternoon we were coming home from the beach, we had been in the car a LOOOOOONG time and we were all getting a little punchy.  It was quiet and Brian belched, quite loudly....without missing a beat, from the backseat we hear a little voice pipe up with, "Excuuuuuuuuse you, Daddy!".  Oh Maggie.....seriously? This kid slays me!

And then this.....
I swear to oh my goodness, I had NO part in this, she threw a fit and wanted to take "her" purse to get ice cream and where she learned to carry it like, you got me.....LOL

Hope you're having a great day!!!

2nd Birthday: The Actual Day

Last Friday, the 27th was Maggie's actual birthday.  I'm not sure if she realized this, with all the birthday parties that she has had, but we tried to make it extra special for her "real" birthday....

We started the morning off with balloons.  I wanted Mags to wake up and walk out of her room to a hallway filled with balloons.  One for the celebration aspect and also because Mags LOVES her "balaloons"....

Next we had a little photo shoot for the 2nd birthday.  So far, we have taken a pic on the actual day and that is something that I will always want to do! Then it was off to a special breakfast at the local diner with Daddy and Mommy!  Brian was able to go in a little late to work that day and it was so much fun!


Then Daddy had to go to work and we had a few calls from some birthday well wishers.  Then we decided to head over to the Disney Store aka "The Mickey Store" as Mags calls it.  I won a Disney gift card and I thought it would be fun to head over there and let Mags pick out one thing.  

Little did I know how much fun we would have!  I should have known that the Disney store would do it right.  I had Mags wear a "Birthday Girl" shirt that my mom got her, but not one person said anything to her at the diner (I get it, they might have thought that she was really liked the shirt, and that it might not have been her actual birthday, but still....LOL).  That was not the case at the Disney store.  The minute we walked in, one of the cast members caught a glimpse of Mag's shirt and asked me "Do we have a birthday girl here?"  and I said, "Yep, today is her birthday!".  "Oh, then let's have a party!"

They gave her a crown and gathered everyone around to sing "Happy Birthday" to her.  Then they gave everyone a coloring sheet as a party favor for "attending" Maggie's was perfect!  Then we ran around looking at everything, Mags was in heaven!  She got a plush Donald and Daisy, a clearance Minnie/Mickey t-shirt and a new Minnie plate and water bottle.  Mags really enjoyed herself and we were not happy about having to leave.....LOL.

After that we went home had lunch, and then nap time.  When she got up from her nap, Daddy was home and it was time to get on the road.  So we had birthday dinner at Wendy's....

After that it was off to Grammy and Poppy's for the weekend for Mag's second 2nd birthday party!
More on that soon!  Hope that you are having a great day!!!
