Reagan's 2nd Birthday.

FINALLY....Reagan's 2nd Birthday Party! This year we had a Minnie Mouse theme. Though I have found out since then that Reagan's favorite is actually Daisy. I think she connects with Daisy's sassyness. ANYWAY, we had it one Sunday afternoon.  It was mostly adults- our staff team and friends from around town, Rick's parents we able to come which was fun, and then our small group from church. Our small group has a few kids so we had fun watching the kids run around and play. I must admit, kid parties are not my cup of tea. I have been throwing adult parties for years and I can say I really enjoy hosting adults. When it comes to kids I am not too sure what to do. Thankfully at this age they just run around playing with whatever is around so I didn't plan too many "activities". 

I was so blessed and found these great decorations at a yard sale the day before the party. It saved me hours of work. The lady sells them on etsy but had some she was getting rid of. Also, I usually put pics of whoevers' birthday it is of their year. Fun to remember and see how they have changed. 

Rick was such a great helper. Here he is fixing the take home treats - Puppy chow. 

Some of the sweet treats. We had strawberry cupcakes and mickey shaped rice crispy treats. 

For the salty treats we had veggies and dip, chex mix, Cheetos (Reagan's favorite), and kettle corn. 

This was the cookie decorating station. We had sugar cookies in the shape of mickey and also I had found some cute Christmas cookies on Pinterest that we tried to make. 

here is one of the better looking cookies. 

here are several of our friends and staff team working on the cookies. We had some interesting ones. I will not post them here. :)

This was the coloring station. Jess colored a very nice pic of Minnie. 

Another cute banner from the yard sale. Also, not pictured I scored some Minnie water bottle wrappers, cupcake toppers, and some other random things. 

The Cupcakes. 

The birthday girl excited about blowing out her candles. 

We all waited for her to really dig into the cupcake but she just licked the icing off and was very clean about the whole process. She was the same last year. Maybe next year we will do cookie cake- she LOVES cookies. I guess she takes after her mom = all about the cookies. 

Reagan playing with one of her friends from our church community group. They are close to the same age. 

This is Casey, she is on our staff team. Reagan calls her She-she. Casey worked hard to get Reagan to like her and it has paid off. Reagan loves her She-she

I usually forget to get pictures of myself since I usually am running around making sure everything is going okay at the party but I was glad we snagged this one. A great pic of Reagan. 

Of course the kids aren't looking but a good pic of the fam nonetheless. 

All pumped up with sugar at the end of the party and all smiles! It was a success!
