What a fun time we all had at Reese's farmed themed birthday party!!!! I hope you enjoy a peak into her party!
Cake Table: I used one of Reese's Little People farms for the decorationalong with some of the animals on the cake. And look at all of those adorable hats...thanks to Jessica...and they were a BIG hit!!!! Reese loved her hat and it looked so cute on her!
Cute fabric banner made from this tutorial....
I thought I needed to be super mom and make Reese's cake. After two attempts resulting in crumbling cake....I threw in the towel and scrambled to find someone to make her cake instead. Luckily the last person I called was able to make it....did I mention I was trying to find someone the day before the party. I think it turned out adorable and was sooo yummy!
What is a farm party with out animals!!!! Papaw came through in a big way and had so many fun animals for everyone to play with. There were goats, bunnies(thanks to Aunt Melissa), kittens, chicks, adorable puppies, turtles and of course...Lucy (Papaw's Pony)!!!!
Reese trying to help me & Papaw hitch Lucy up for pony rides:
We had a surprise visitor thanks to Papaw!!! Dora came to visit and pass out toys to all the little ones. Reese wasn't quite sure what to think :) But she did enjoy having Dora there.If you look at the bottom 2 right pictures...you will notice my nephew Ethan (the boy in the blue shirt). Ethan is very special to our family. He was diagnosed with Autism when he was around 2. It took him awhile to start talking and having conversations with all of us. Lately, his speech has been excellent. We love to hear all he has to say....and most of it is full of humor. Ethan kept stealing Dora's backpack, map and Boots...so we started calling him Swiper. Of course we all chimed in and said, "Swiper no swiping!" to which Ethan replied...."You're toooo late!!!" We thank God that we have the opportunity to share in these great conversations!
Cake Time: Reese was in awe of everyone singing "Happy Birthday" to her!
She did an excellent job at blowing out her candles....mommy and daddy only had to help a little bit :)
Sweet Pictures of the Birthday Girl:
We had a Yee-Haw good time!!!!! But this is how we all felt on the trip back home!!!
Thank you Mamaw & Papaw for letting us have the party at your house and for making sure it was just like a farm!!!! You two are the best!!!!

(click on the picture to enlarge)
I'm thinking I need to add something above the sink and stove...it looks a little bare. Any suggestions???
(Our favorite waiter, Pedro, is the one on the far left....he has been our requested waiter since before I was even pregnant with Reese)
Still not sure about the singing.....
But she loved the dessert they brought her!!!
We always end our Casa Las Palmas trips by saying "Hello" to the horses that are behind the restaurant.
What a fun Birthday Reese had!!!!

You love to dance and sing!! You love ketchup with a side of fries, ice cream and you would choose apple juice over milk every time! I love that you can talk to me and tell me what you want or need....well, most of the time I like it :) Right now you would go swimming everyday if I would take you. You also adore to swing but am still very leery of slides. Dora is your favorite cartoon, but you are happy with any cartoon. Of course, I am a bad mom and have to tell you no to cartoons more often then you would like me to. Snow White and Toy Story are you movies of choice right now. You love animals, but your favorite by far are the neigh's!!! And of course, we can't forget your favorite color.....PINK!!!!
I can't wait to see what the years have in store...just please take them a little slower then the past two! You are growing into such a beautiful little girl and am so proud to be called your Mama!!! I will also continue to savor the fact that you think Mama & Daddy are the best two people on earth!!!
