well, i have to say that emma's 2nd birthday party was more fun than i could have ever imagined! we had so many sweet friends and family to celebrate, with us, our sweet little emma kate. we had a bounce house, bubble machines, a cotton candy machine, and lots of little tykes-type plastic slides and playthings. it was almost like we had a carnival in our backyard!
emma had a BLAST! it was such a blessing to see her so happy and just enjoying her special day.
most of these pictures are of emma... but i only picked a few from the hundreds that we have! :-)
emma's birthday cake was amazing!
(cake & cupcakes by megan with sweet temptations bakery)
i can't believe this thing was in our backyard!
(thanks to "uncle cory" - my brother - for getting us this treat for emma's party!)
aunt lulu (jason's sister), our sweet friend becca mercer, my sweet friend missy's daughter brynn & emma kate -
all gettin' their jump on!
mommy & daddy had friends at the party, too!
jason with becca & drew mercer
of course, my child was putting on someone else's shoes
(i think she may have an obsession...)
what's better than a big, fat ball of cotton candy?
her first bite... right before she spit it out!
i think she wasn't sure about it melting in her mouth.
crazy girl - she doesn't know what she's missing!
"MY cup-cape, mommy."
(isn't this a priceless picture?)
note the pinky sticking up... so dainty!
favors for emma's friends & guests
the sea of tissue paper & bags was insane!
the best part: she was content with each individual gift.
we had to force her to open more!
(this scooter was by far her fave, though)
how do i make it go?
and... i'm done.
she was SO exhausted!
what a blessing this weekend was. thank you to all our friends & family who helped make emma's day so special for our family. we love you all!
hope you guys had as much fun as we did!
