Finally a second birthday party for Sammi girl.
I did what I never do - went to the party store online, bought a bunch of character themed premade stuff, stuck it up in my house, sent out a premade invite and just let the kids do whatever they please.
Cupcakes from a box even. (Red velvet = nightmare. Messy, staining and wouldn't stick to the wrappers? What's up with that?)
And you know? She still loved it.
Friends brought her a Thomas balloon and oh my! So much delight from a balloon. She played with it for more than an hour, laughing and giggling the whole time. Who knew a balloon was so wonderous?
She had NO CLUE why everyone was singing at her. The looks on her face were priceless (and sadly not captured on my camera).
And there was more than one "damn it" uttered when she couldn't open the presents.
LOL That's my girl.
Happy Thomas Birthday baby.
P.S. I ordered her a Thomas tutu (the only girly Thomas thing they make) and it didn't arrive. So she wore her boy shirt with a skirt. And you know what? I didn't even care. I also really didn't care that it wasn't a totally creative, hand crafted party. Clearly I am still growing too.
P.P.S. We will totally be having portraits made in that tutu dress though. Might as well embrace and remember this phase.
