Last month was Charlie's 2nd Birthday. I swear, I started planning at least 2 months prior! I went with a bubble theme, so bubbles and circles showed up all over the place:
Charlie in her birthday dress that I embellished just for her special day.
I must say, I pretty proud of the cake—even though we wore Charlie out so bad that by the time we were ready to cut the cake, she didn't even want to blow out her candles!!!! Instead, she went upstairs and took a very long nap. (We saved her cake and she had it the next morning, complete with candles and another round of "Happy Birthday.")
I stressed out quite a bit a few hours before when balloons started randomly popping all over the place, but Charlie had so much fun playing with all her cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents that I found it to be well worth all the effort. Besides, who am I kidding? I couldn't repress my crazy party planning madness even if I wanted to!!! (I started thinking about Peyton's 1st birthday party about 2 seconds after the last guest left from Charlie's party. . .)
