Happy Birthday Lilah

I can't believe it has been 2 years since Lilah came to earth. It makes me sad to think how quickly time is passing because it's only going to get quicker~ I learned that the hard way with McGwire. We had her birthday party this morning and although she seemed to have a good time, she really had no clue what was going on. Oh the wasted money!! haha

Here's the birthday girl fresh from a good night sleep ready to start her birthday!

I had a ton of stuff to do and clean so I started decorating the night before. Brannon helped me by putting up the streamers and helping me get the table ready.

Here's his handy work.

I made the green pom poms and the "2".

Lilah was not a bit happy when everyone arrived. It wasn't that she didn't want to play with her friends, but that we wouldn't let her eat any hershey's kisses. She seriously cried and whined for the first 15-20 mins. I was ready to have Tim take her for a drive so that the rest of the kids could have some fun!

She cheered up quickly when she realized that I really would put her up for adoption if pushed to the limit.

Here's her cute little birthday outfit that I bought a year ago. She wasn't able to wear it last year since we had to go to Canada and didn't have a party for her.

Here's those $*&# kisses she was obsessing over.

She gladly gave up on the the kisses once the cupcakes were served, though.

Here's a few shots of the spread.

Here's a sample of Tim's handy work.
I really put our marriage to the test with this party. He thought I was out of my mind but he was sweet enough to oblige. He says "What my baby wants, my baby gets."
I think I'll keep him.
The cupcake toppers said "Happy 2nd Birthday".

This next project was what almost sent Tim to the divorce lawyer. But could this be any cuter?

Tim worked his magic once again and designed these shirts himself.
We gave them as party favors.

Brannon was in charge of taking pictures and it was a good thing we didn't have to pay him. He didn't get pictures of all the kids, just a few random shots.

Time for presents!!!!!
Lilah got lots of good stuff. Unfortunately she didn't realize it was all for her but she has had a blast playing with her new stuff already!

We had to stop midway through to wipe her snotty nose. Not really sure where the snot came from because she didn't have a runny nose before the party or since!

Happy birthday my sweet Lilah. You are a pistol but we love you more than you'll ever know!!!!

Man, you really know how to party. Your house looked beautiful - I wish we could have really been there. :-)
I am glad Lilah had a good time.
The cake looks great - the party favors look great - the water bottles look great (wayyy cute idea, btw) - the cupcakes look great - Lilah's outfit looks great - the green pompoms look great (how in the world did you make them and WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME ABOUT THEM? Sheesh, and you think you know a person...)
Anyway - great day!

And I love, LUUUUVE, the cake...polka dots are my favorite...ALWAYS! I'm sure Lilah will look back at these pictures and be amazed at how much her parents love her!

What an adorable outfit, Kelly and Lilah's haircut looks so much better. Everything looks soooo good. You are very talented and Tim, WOW! He is surely talented on that computer. And shirts, you gave away shirts???? Man!!! Those were some lucky kids to get a shirt. I love everything and I especially love the birthday girl. She was so funny tonite. We talked about her all the way home. Happy Birthday, Lilah. We really enjoyed McGwire's game too.

I know I'm sooo late - but I've been out of this blogging world. Happy Birthday Lilah! She's so adorable and you really went above and beyond (I may even steal some of your ideas for the future - such a compliment to you I know!). Why do these babies have to get bigger? I really hate it, don't you?
