This project took much longer than it should have and some of the pictures are really old, but I still think Mikayla will love to look at it when we move this summer! Click on Photobook below if you are interested in looking through it.

When Mikayla turned one I knew I wanted to throw a cupcake themed party. We did and it was fun! This year I was wavering between a Dr. Seuss birthday party and a Candy Themed birthday party. When I gave Ben the options he immediately decided it had to be candy! So candy it was…lots and lots of candy!
All I have to say is: Candy + Lots of friends and family (minus some really special ones who couldn’t make it) + a very special little girl = the best 2 year old birthday party ever! Thanks everyone for making it such fun. I hope we didn’t have too many upset tummies last night! Here are some picture highlights of the day.
The candy bar set up! I was pretty proud of this, minus the bows I did all of this on my own! The pictures are of her at birth, one year and then two years.
Candy sushi made by Ben and myself.
We had everyone write special notes to Mikayla for her third birthday since all our friends and family will be here.
The dip table plus cupcakes (Funfetti of course).
The cupcake smash, similar to last year but funnier!
Here are some very special party guests.

The evening ended with a little party in the bathtub!
Thanks again to everyone who came out to celebrate our special little girls 2nd birthday!
