lily’s 2nd birthday party

today we had lily’s 2nd birthday party here at the house. it was so much fun, both the planning and the party. it was also CRAZY!!! we head a head count of 77!! but it was so much fun, with minor injuries and only a couple accidents. all in all, thanks to a lot of very helpful friends, things ran pretty smoothly. thank you dear friends for all your help and for coming to celebrate our girl!

baby silas

caramel apples gracie and i made for each family

ice cream sandwiches

this was the set up for a game of “pin the party hat on lily” that we didn’t end up playing

here’s most of the kids, making funny faces… or just looking funny!

all in all, a great day. lily loved having friends over for a gigantic play date. and everyone helped pitch in for clean-up before they left, sean did the dishes, i cleaned the floor – things are looking pretty good! thanks again everyone!

    so pretty and so fun!! i am glad to see you have posted already. we had a nice time with the other joneses.

    i like your “pin the hat on lily’ game (copy cat- “pin the crown on emilie,” and “pin the chef hat on josie” :-) it is good you didn’t play it, all those pins poking your pretty girl can be painful to watch.

    give lily birthday hugs for us!

    btw- are those sort sleeves with a glimpse of sunshine i see there in s.l.o.?

    We loved the party and were bummed to have to leave early. We missed the ice cream sandwiches! Oh well, we had a great time anyway.

    hi there,
    i am not sure how i found this blog, but its so much fun seeing your crafts! your ideas are amazing. totally random question though…do you know the name of your wall color in the picture of your living room (im guessing its your living room…with a fireplace)?
    its awesome.

    kaley – the paint is called silver sage by restoration hardware. we had it color matched at home depot, and they made it a little more grey. the true color has a bit more blue/green to it. hope that helps!
