Oh Wow, Tess is two! I probably went a bit crazy planning her birthday party, but it couldn't be helped! I'm just wild about my little gal and wanted to make it a special day for her. I know she is too young and probably won't remember much about her second birthday, so I've taken lots of photos to document it for her!
|Presents from Mommy & Daddy|
|I was excited for Tess to open her presents, so I let her open them in the morning while |
still in our jammies!
|Hand-made party hats!|
|The kids decorated their own treat bags - which I made by stitching up the sides of craft paper with |
my sewing machines
|Miles made this amazing alligator pinata!|
|We invited some of Tessa's animal toys to the party, and made hats for them!|
|Tessa's friends brought their favorite stuffed animals to be judged in the |
'best animal' competition
|Taking out the alligator!|
|Mr Alligator was filled with sweet things|
|Everyone received their own animal masks|
|This pretty much sums up how Tess felt about putting on |
a mask or a party hat!
|But her friends sure looked cute in their party hats|
|We went on a wild animal hunt in the garden and found |
all sorts of wild creatures!
|Tessa's friends brought her prettily wrapped birthday presents|
|And of course there was cake! Chocolate cake made by me!|
(Can you tell it's an elephant?)
|A bit unsure about the sparklers (especially after they set off the fire alarm!)|
|Had to throw this photo in just to prove that Miles was present!|
Happy Birthday little Miss Tess! xo
