Well, it was quite the birthday party blow-out for our little Bernadette this year. She turned two and we celebrated the heck out of it.
Here is how her birthday morning started. She was happily curled up in a box, with her blanky, a kitty and some m&ms.
Later that night we had a small party with just some family...but LOTS of gifts. She wore the pretty dress daddy had brought back from China.
And we all enjoyed some Strawberry Shortcake.
Saturday was the BIG PRINCESS PARTY! And, Bernadette was happy to dress the part.
Even Gus got a present!
Pretty soon the princesses started to arrive!
All sorts of princesses...
It turned out to be a BIG party. Lots of family and friends.
Even Aunt Tina came from PA.
Bill and I made some fun decorations--and we will be bribing the kids with sucker for a long time to come!
After dinner we tried to get a photo booth going, and we got a few pictures...but in the end it was just a few too many people to wrangle!
Dominic and Luke were good sports, though!
As was the Barron Family!
And John is always up for a few strange pictures!
Bernadette was, of course, not the only pretty princess at the party!
It was a wonderful night full of loads of friends and princesses and suckers! We are glad we celebrated our little girl to the max...but chances are we will be doing something a little more low-key for her 3rd birthday!
