When we were in Utah last week we had a birthday party for her so that she could spend her special day with her family, even though it was about 11 days early :) We had a farm themed party, and it turned out so cute (if I do say so myself!).
I spent about three whole days making these invitations. I know, some may say that I am crazy when I was only giving them to her grandparents and aunts and uncles but I just couldn't resist making some cute farm themed party invitations, for the scrapbook if nothing else :)
Close to My Heart sells them and all the paper and embellishments I used are also Close to My Heart.

The lamb (covered in marshmallows)
The pig (the ears are fruit roll-ups)
Half of the cupcakes were gluten free
The complete decor
For dinner we served Cheesy Vegetable Soup, Salad de Maison, and breadsticks
I got the party favors at Peppermint Place

Uncle Dawson and Grandma
Daci and her daddy. She was clapping when she saw all the yummy food on the table!
Daci with her Papou, who she now calls "Fred!"
Daci with her Papa. They saw a big buck in the backyard. My dad is a big hunter and they watch hunting shows together all day. Daci knows all the big game and especially loves "big bucks"
Aunt Carly, Yia Yia, and Mommy
Daci while we sang Happy Birthday to her
She ended up loving the whole singing and blowing out the candles process that we had to do it three times for her!

Present Opening. I got her big girl panties. We are going to start potty-training. Wish us luck!
Daci had a great party with all her family and friends (Easton and Daysha couldn't make it, Daysha was trying out for Tuacahn; Tannon and Sam were on their missions; and Sophie was at the Sweetheart's dance). We are grateful that she got to see everyone so close to her 2nd birthday!
Happy Birthday my little Doodle! You are my everything!
