Norah's 2nd Birthday Party

Yesterday, we celebrated Norah's 2nd birthday by having a shindig at our place.  We'd given her a choice for theme, and she chose Toy Story.  So, while she napped yesterday afternoon, we decorated the house in all sorts of Woody, Buzz and Jessie party supplies.  Here's Norah after getting up from her nap and discovering some of the party preparations:
This year, she really understood, and enjoyed, presents and present opening.  And, she got a lot of great loot!
 Here's her Toy Story cake with Woody and Buzz:
She liked having "Happy Birthday" sung to her and she liked blowing out her candle.  So much so, that midway through eating her slice of cake, she put her candle back in and pretended to blow out the candle again.  It was very cute.  Here she is enjoying her cake; she's a frosting fan:
This morning she was up at 6 am, eager to play with all of her new toys; plus, she got a pretty cool Jessie get-up that she was anxious to put on.  Here she is, below, posing in her Jessie shirt and cowgirl boots, with accompanying Jessie doll.  Don't mind me, the "other Jessie," it was early and I hadn't showered yet.
So, today, she's been busy playing vet in her new princess tent, and Jerry and I are slowly easing into the post-party day.  It wore us out throwing a b-day party for a 2 year old, and I've needed a little extra coffee to get me going this morning.  I didn't drink a drop of alcohol, but for some reason, prepping for the party, having the party, and then cleaning up after the party seems to have given me a party-hangover!  Thankfully, birthdays only come around once a year, and it was worth it: She had SO much fun, and so did we!

Happy b-day, Norah! It's great when they are "aware" of the festivities, right?!

It was a fun party and the Jessie boots won the adults over big time. The picture is adorable! We are glad Norah had a fantastic 2nd birthday.

Mom better rest up because next year it will be Caleb's first birthday and I am guessing from experience, the big 3 for Norah means even more organized chaos.

She is so cute in that outfit! I thought that was Caleb in the picture with you and Norah and thought that was a funny angle, but then I realized it was a doll. (Not before I clicked on the image to see it big to make sure though!)

Cutest cowgirl ever! Makes me want to buy some boots myself... or maybe just for Rylee. :)
