birthday fun

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)

butterfly "cup-capes," as emma calls them
...again... amazing!

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!)

she would NOT leave the bounce house -
jumping is her FAVORITE thing in the world!

aunt lulu (jason's sister), our sweet friend becca mercer, my sweet friend missy's daughter brynn & emma kate -
all gettin' their jump on!

cute "i'm the birthday girl" shirt

...from the back... "just turned two!"

part of emma's entourage - aaron & ella

dylan - one of emma's favorite people
& apparent "betrothed"

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!

singing to our girl

"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!

Looks like a blast!

Sara, I was wondering where or how you got your header like you did? I would like a customized one but have no idea where to even go?!

Glad Emma had fun. We enjoyed seeing her and had fun watching her play. My favorite was watching Jason TRY to make cotton candy.
