Now onto Harrison's second birthday party. Considering the fact that I would be 37 weeks pregnant at Harrison's party, I decided to keep it low key and simple. Well... my friend at work apparently described me best when she said, "You can't do simple." This party definitely proved her right, but how often does my baby turn TWO?!?!
Harrison got a LEGO table at Christmas and has become quite the little builder since then. So I decided to throw him a LEGO themed party. It started by me collecting empty tissue boxes from all the teachers at work for months. These tissue boxes lovingly were wrapped by my mother and turned into Lego's.
Harrison takes after Mommy and has a huge sweet tooth, so of course we had to have a dessert table.
Complete with Lego cupcakes - Thanks Aunt Penny for our cupcake wrappers.
White chocolate popcorn in Lego bags
Mini Jello Jars
And of course... a LEGO cake!
For lunch we had yummy burgers and hot dogs cooked by Daddy
and "LEGOmade" to drink.
Some other party details included...
The utensil table
A balloon lined walk-way. This picture isn't good since the wind was blowing. I planned on getting pictures after the party, but by the time the party ended it was raining. You can imagine my disappointment.
LEGO favor bags filled with mini-chocolate LEGO bars.
And Dr. Seuss' Happy Birthday to You book served as our guest book.
"H" centerpieces on the mantle complete with LEGO frames
Lots, and lots, of LEGOs for the kiddies to play with!
And of course, what LEGO party would be complete without a monkey to help celebrate
and LEGOs in the soap.
Now onto the fun stuff... presents, cake, friends, and family!!
During our first attempt to sing Happy Birthday to Harrison he got a little overwhelmed, so he settled with a cupcake.
We then opened presents
and took some family and friends pictures.
Harrison with Mommy (baby Parker) and Daddy.
The Kershner family
The Underberg/Kraus family
Mommy with her pregnant friends. Just think at next year's party we will have two new friends and a little brother to join in all the fun!
We couldn't leave Amber out so we took a bellies and beer photo.
Once most guest had gone home, we decided to try singing "Happy Birthday" to Harrison one more time. This time the cake was a BIG HIT!
Who needs a fork when you can use your fingers?!?!
