Birthday parties are A LOT of work. The party was at 7:00 and I was at my inlaw's house a little after 10:00 and literally worked the whole day up until people started showing up. I was exhausted! I'm so thankful for my sister-in-law helping me out with decorating the cake. I would not have been able to do it without her. Seriously. I'm so thankful she was willing.

|At one point in time I wondered if I was completely crazy for throwing a party.. maybe I was, but it was SO worth it!|
|This was one of our games that we played. It was a lot of fun hearing everyone's guesses. If you're interested, there were 440.|
|Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch|
|My husband is AMAZING! He drew this for me while at work. This is not a stencil! He did it completely on his own. I am still so amazed!|

|Zoe and Emilie (not sure why she isn't smiling..).|

|A little friend of Zoe's!|
|Zoe insisted on Bubba playing too!|
|My word.. Zoe is getting so big. I cannot believe she is 2 already!|

|This was the day after the party. Bubba is slowly figuring out how to climb stairs! Yikes!|
Like I said, the party organizing was a lot of work, but Zoe's reaction to every decoration, cupcake, present, etc. was worth it to me! I absolutely love my children and I love being able to do special things for them.
Next month I will be planning ANOTHER Birthday -- Maximus will be turning 1. Can you believe it?!
