Claire’s Party

June 15, 2012
It has been almost a month since we celebrated Claire’s birthday and it is still hard to believe that she is two years old!  It seems like yesterday Chris and I were walking the floors of the labor and delivery unit – him cracking jokes and me worrying more about Colton than actually giving birth!

Claire loves Minnie so it was a no-brainer that we would attempt to pull off a Minnie Mouse Birthday Party!  Rebecca from Polkadaises has made all of our birthday shirts – she does a fabulous job!  I told her we wanted a minnie shirt using red instead of pink and she came through brilliantly!  The headband – well that was my creation and I have to say that I am kind of proud of it!

Notice the princess cup?  We picked that cup up at the Tervis store while at the beach.  It’s a new design perfect for little hands – Claire loves it!!  She also enjoyed the Doritos someone gave her… can you say “cheesy mouth!?”
I made red velvet cupcakes from scratch – they were delicious!  Especially the icing! 
I think Claire really liked the icing!
No, really, she loved it!
She did not take one bite of the actual cupcake!
Gift time!  She loved her princess castle and especially her baby carrier!
Claire enjoyed the food and the gifts, but I think more than anything they enjoyed having their friends over to play!!!
Someone for sure needed a nap on the long drive home!  Not sure if it was momma or the kiddos!
Do you like Colton’s rain boots!  We found these on clearance while at the beach and Colton and Claire love them – even on hot days like this one!
Claire’s face is priceless!  Totally priceless!
It was a great day – we started with an unhappy birthday morning … squeezed in a great birthday party and ended with a fantastic wedding!

Happy Birthday to “our princess”!
