for our little two year old's party, we chose an elmo theme.
i don't really know how, oh yes, it just came to me---andrea saw a cupcake idea that set our party in the works.
plus, elmo is really the only show bentley watches.
and he is really cute.
we had a family party with shawns parents, dj, andrea, & jedidiah, my meema & poppa, & my mom, jeff & siblings.
we will be having another party at the lake in a few weeks with my dad & the burkes.
it was a fun sunday afternoon of eating, hanging out (inside), & playing.
bentley had a wonderful day.
at this age (or perhaps forever?), your grandparents & aunts/uncles are your best friends. they are exactly who bentley wanted to spend his day with.
|the day before his birthday, a birthday card from grandmother came in the mail. WITH a gift card. bentley took a nap with his gift card. he was thrilled to get mail with his name on it!|
