Emerson Grace is two years old. It's amazing to me how fast these two years have gone by. I still so clearly remember finding out I was pregnant with her and how completely shocked Clay and I were as she was a quite a surprise. But she was exactly what our family needed and I can't even put into words the joy she brings to everyone who is lucky enough to know her. I wanted her birthday to be very special and so I put a lot of work into it (like making the tulle wreath, the invitations, and the tulle poms) and I'm happy to say it paid off. My girl's second birthday party - her tutu party - was an absolute fabulous time.
Clay, Narls and I decorated the whole house with pink & orange tulle and we had goodies such as pizza, cheese & crackers, fruit, and chocolate covered pretzles to munch on.
To keep the kiddos occupied, we had little wooden ballerina fairies for them to color. This was a big hit as the girls loved coloring their fairies.
My girlfriend Sarah made Em's strawberry cake and it tasted even better than it looked, which is saying a lot because this cake was gorgeous!
Em got so many awesome and thoughtful gifts! And I may be a bit biased but I do believe her favorite was her tricycle from her daddy and me. ;)
There was a pull-string pinata which the kiddos loved...
...and each girl got her very own tutu! The girls danced and played and laughed and sang.
It was a perfect day for my perfect girl.
Happy Birthday Em Bug!
