Our Cupcakes Turn 2!

Addy & Lilly turn 2 next week and I'll spare you all the "I can't believe it's been 2 years since they've been in my belly" talk and get on with the good stuff! We moved the party up because they will be making their flower girl debut next week and Daddy's birthday is this week, so we'll be spending 10 days starting Thursday at the Lake! So, 9 days early it was.
We decided to do a party in the park because they both LOVE being outside and honestly, I wasn't sure I was up for 14 kids wrecking havoc in my house. The park worked out great with only a few bumps in the plans. Weather was BEAUTIFUL and we were surrounded by all our family and friends who LOVE our kiddos! Who can ask for more?

Cast & Crew of the Cupcake Party (top to bottom, left to right): Max L., Jack W., Jacob D., Jaxson J., Audrey S., Chase E., Mallory C., Cooper E., Tyson J., Ben S., Dakota J. & Evan S.
Complete with Cupcake invitations, cupcake outfits, cupcake cakes and cupcake bags as favors (I love a good theme and this one was fun!), we had a great time. Of course, the stars of the show were Addy & Lilly:
I had to include a rare picture of my girlfriends and our munchkins! Love you girls!

Although a little overwhelmed at the moment I just cannot resist saying what a fantastic party it turned out to be--all the children got on so well and were absolutely the cutest,best behaved and best dressed children and babies I have ever seen---no tears,lots of laughs,great food and absolutely the VERY BEST company. Singing could use some practice though!!!

You may want to spare us the 'I can't believe they're 2'..but I won't. I CAN NOT believe they're 2! Crazy how time flies!

Congrats on a beautiful family. So when are numbers 3 and 4 coming along?! Tee, hee!

Sounds like a great party! I LOVE the cupcake cakes, how cute, I'm hoping those were purchased and not homemade :)
