Emma's Sweet Shoppe

Happy 2nd Birthday Emma!!!
We celebrated Emma's birthday yesterday with a Sweet Shoppe Party.

Four of Emma's friends and our families came to help celebrate Emma's second birthday with us. All morning we had been telling Emma "Happy Birthday", and by the end of the day, she could also say it. Very Sweet.
Here are LOTS of photos of Emma's big day. Although I know she won't remember this particular birthday, I think she felt very special!

I made lollipop topiaries for either side of the front door. They turned out really cute.
Since the theme was a sweet shoppe, I bought lots and lots of candy for everyone to take home with them. Too bad the majority of it was still here after everyone had left. I think I'll send it to JC's dental office in the morning. Ha Ha!

Here is the sign hanging above the candy bar. I cannot take credit for this. Many of my ideas came from this very talented blogger.

And this is the centerpiece that I literally threw together just 2 hours before the party.

Instead of a traditional cake, MiMi made wonderful cupcakes for the party. They were eye candy.

Sarah (our Goddaughter) was the first to arrive. She was so cute. She wanted to have her picture made with Emma by the giant lollipops.

After everyone arrived, the girls got to choose a bear from a Bu*ild A Bear kit that I bought. Thankfully MiMi and Katie had taken these and sewn them up for the most part before the party. Mom had even divided each bear up with all of her "stuff" and put them in large baggies for me. I made initial monogram gift bags for the girls to take their bear home in...

And here are the Moms and girls stuffing their bears after gently kissing the hearts that they placed inside.

And Emma hugging her new bear after Patsy had sewn her up.

The last thing we did was sing "Happy Birthday" to Emma. She sure did love the spotlight. It was very cute.

I just came across your blog, not even sure how I found it. What a beautiful story and beautiful family you have. I read your blog all the way back to the beginning and it was like reading a real life fairy tale. I'm so thrilled for your family. What a blessing your little girl is as well as all of your children. God Bless

Memory sure is becoming cheaper these days. I'm curious as to when we will finally reach the rate of $0.01 to 1 Gigabyte.

I can't wait for the day when I will finally be able to afford a 20 TB harddrive, lol. But for now I will be happy with having a 16 GB Micro SD in my R4i.
