Little Mabel turned 2 years old on Valentine’s Day…seriously, where has the time gone?!
I’m not a huge party planner but due to Mabel’s love for Elmo, we decided to go with Elmo as the theme for her party.
We were lucky enough to be down in Texas visiting my husband’s family when we celebrated Mabel’s party. We’re so used to celebrating events and holidays by ourselves so I can’t tell you how nice it was to have Mabel’s party with a lot of family and friends. It’s times like these that make me sad that we don’t live by family…but I guess military life is what it is and it’s just part of the deal.
I think it’s safe to say Mabel enjoyed being the center of attention for her special day and absolutely loved when everyone sang Happy Birthday to her.
My mother in law ordered an awesome cake for Mabel too:
I guess I should have taken off the plastic for the photo but hindsight is 20/20, lol! Mabel loved the cake and had seen it the day before her party…she immediately yelled out, “ELMOOOO“. That’s the exact reaction we wanted!
Eating cake is serious business!
And of course after the cake came cookies!
We had a very sweet friend make Elmo themed cookies for Mabel and they were the hit of the party.
The cookies are by Rolled Dough and I can’t recommend Kirby enough! She can make any cookie you could possibly dream up and her prices are way better than anyone else (they can be shipped too!). Check her out if you need any special cookies!
We couldn’t have asked for a better or more beautiful day to celebrate our little girl’s birthday. She might officially be a toddler now but she’s still my little baby.
