|Welcome all Butterflies|
and bugs! Ahava's 2nd birthday party!
|We had all the children (and even some adults|
joined in) chose a pair of wings and bug antennae!
|Here is the yummy cake! It was so beautiful|
and also so yummy! Half was white cake and
the other was chocolate. Both sides had
a raspberry filling! I can still taste it!
|Here is the birthday butterfly all dressed and ready|
for her special day! I loved the lighting and her
expression in this photo! It captured her
childlike wonder at all the stuff around her!
|Some of the decorations! We found some neat things,|
one was the leaf lights we had hanging on the fireplace!
They were so cool with the theme. We wanted it to
be like a beautiful garden!
|Goodie bags for the children!|
|Here is the nectar station! Ha-ha! We also had yummy|
lemonade available, that didn't make the picture.
|One of my favorite ideas was the "bug dig station." After the kids|
dug up their bugs, they came over to this table and made a
"home" for them in a jar. We had leaves, wood chips, sticks
and ribbons to tie it with.
|We just used mason jars from the dollar store and printed some|
fun labels for them!
|We decided to do chips and dips this year. It was something easy |
we could do that still was fun. We had such a neat variety!
|Making a home for their bugs!|
|Digging for bugs!!!!! (We could not peal Ahava away!)|
|Finding the petals!!!|
|Family photo right before singing Happy Birthday!|
|This is Ahava's face when everyone was singing to her! She was so|
|I don't think she likes the cake, do you?|
|Opening her gifts!|
|A very very happy two-year old!|
|Papa and Mama got this for her! She is very much into make-believe|
and taking care of baby!
|After a long and blessed day, Papa snuggles and reads a book before bed.|
