Brought To You By The Number 2 & The Letter H

Henry turned 2 last week and we celebrated with all his friends on Sesame Street. I bought these fun cupcakes at a local grocery store to take to his school on his birthday.

He was so excited to see them. He dove right in and took Big Bird's head off. His friends were yelling "Elmo".
It was a fun mess and everyone had fun celebrating with our Birthday boy at school.

The day after his birthday we had his party. I worked on it for a few months. I love party planning. I may not be a polished pro, but I enjoy it and that is what matters. I love that Henry is covering up his 2 on his shirt. I purchased a Sesame Street shirt so I would also be in theme. Randall declined to participate.

His party was a Sesame Street party, of course. We had it at our church in the old fellowship hall and rented a toddler bounce house. It was loads of fun.

Since "monker" and Elmo are his favorite characters on Sesame Street I made only their faces on the cupcakes. They were fun and messy to make. The children loved them.

This is how you got to Henry Street. I loved the idea of footprints of "Monker", Big Bird and Elmo. I made the balloon wreath and will use it for years to come. It is much cuter in person.

The cookies tasted as fantastic and they look. Amy from Fort Smith made them for us again this year. She is precious and a saint to mail them to us again. They were a crowd pleaser.

I used my Cricut to make the goodie bags. They had all the things Elmo and "monker" like in them...and a little play dough because a party bag is not complete without it.

Henry's gift table was full of blessings as you can see. I decorated with tissue paper pom poms in a few places. Some even had Elmo and "Monker" faces on them.

hand painted 2's and H's were everywhere and the party hats were handmade again this year. I love crafting and planning for my sweet boy!

The party table for Henry and his little friends was festive and fun. They loved their horns but did not want to wear their hats. I didn't figure they would, they just look cute on the table and that is why I made them!

Our little buddy was so excited to have his bounce house and all his best friends with him. He had so much fun.

His Daddy and I are blessed to have a healthy, happy baby boy to celebrate. He is our best blessing ever.

The bounce house was great fun. It was designed for toddlers and not your normal moon bounce you see at most parties. They adored it and we all enjoyed watching them have a fun time.

Henry and his best girl loved the slide. The giggled and giggled.

Randall was the bounce house man. He stayed in and took care of all the children. Little Addy loved the mushroom. I loved this picture.

All kinds of activity when you have a room full of toddlers. It was so enjoyable to watch them run and giggle. We have such sweet people in our lives to celebrate Henry with us.

Present opening was a fun and interesting time with a bunch of 2 year olds. I got a kick out of observing them with the gifts.

It was time to eat cupcakes and Henry had latched on to the car Piper got him and wanted nothing but that car. That boy is a spoiled mess!

Don't you just love our little Barrett in the middle of my friend Stacy's girls?! His grin is precious.

They had lots of fun eating and making a mess. We had fun watching them as you can tell!

Watch out! I thought a pinata was a good idea. I soon realized it was a crazy idea and I had to break it for the babies. They all took a turn hitting it and it was hilarious. I took photos of each of them taking a turn but decided this post was already too long....so I refrained. I love Steve moving Noah out of the way and Randall and Henry's expressions. I also love Randa, Carma Jean and Lisa's faces. It was violent trying to get that thing to break! There are several photos of me in the process of breaking it and those tooo are priceless but there is no need to post them here!


Candy!I bought a cheap candy mix at the store for the Pinata. Little did I know it was full of jaw breakers....nice! I got harassed big time.

This sweet thing went home with me for the afternoon. She and her mama came from Little Rock to celebrate with us. She, her mama, my Daddy, Connie, Babs, Uncle Joe, Nana and Papa came to our house to visit. We loved every minute of it.

Being 2 and being Henry is hard sometimes, but when you are as cute as he is, it can be overlooked!

The partying continued that evening with Barrett's 2nd birthday bash. He is Henry's best friend at church. We love him. He and Henry are polar opposites personality wise. It is so funny to watch them. He had a barn party and of course Henry had to dress in theme!

We partied hard and brought in the Big 2 with lots of smiles. Now on to thinking about next year's....nah, I will wait a bit! :)
