One birthday down, one to go!

Happy Tuesday everyone!! Sorry we have been a little MIA…I told you that we are in birthday party mode all week : )

Anthony’s real birthday was this past Sunday. He is now 2. I can’t even believe it. I feel like being pregnant with him was only yesterday. It is crazy. Anyway, Christopher’s birthday is this upcoming Friday. So we celebrated both boys this weekend with my husband’s family. Since it was the house party, I did not have to do all of the goodie bags and as many decorations. There was only a few kids, so I tried to keep it simple. Next week’s party will be more involved.

Believe it or not, I didn’t snap as many photos as I wanted. You know how that goes…..when you are hosting, you never sit.

We went with the Lego theme……here was our inspiration.

Of course I needed to make both boys Lego birthday party shirts. I created the image on the computer, printed on iron-on paper and just sewed a border around them. Anthony got a crown with Lego heads since it was his ‘real’ birthday….LOL!

I used my new Silhouette SD machine to make some of the decorations. I posted this on the door…

There were Lego heads and bodies all over the place….

I also got square plates from Walmart and used a Sharpie to draw a face. Yes, there were some relatives that questioned this. But, it doesn’t come off. Oh, well, you ate a little bit of marker : )

We had two cakes….the top one is from the bakery. But I wasn’t sure that the kids would eat it since it had cannoli filling, so I made chocolate cake for the kiddos.

And finally….I was able to get one shot with each of my boys.

What a cute party! My boys' b-days are also quite close together (but by 5 yrs) and the oldest refuses to have a "together" party :)

OK so if that was a party without that many decorations, I can't wait to see the pictures from this weekend's bash! ;-) It looked like a great party, and everything was so cute! I love the boys' shirts. And I gotta say...I probably wouldn't eat off the Sharpie plates, but does that surprise you? LOL

I hope you're having a great week!

Girl - you totally went all out, at least by my standards! Awesome job, I am inspired by the way you through a party! The "oh, well, they ate a little marker" line made me LOL.

He looks so much older than 2! I wish our newly 2 year olds could play together :)
