Jackson turns 2...part two...the party!

The cupcake tower of dinosaurs. Nothing fancy this time, just white cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, or chocolate cupcakes with vanilla frosting, or chocolate cherry cheesecake cupcakes...nothing major.

Thanks Grandma for the great shirt to go with the theme of the party.

Present time! Thanks Kris for helping with the opening of the toys. As you may remember, that is not my favorite thing to do.

Jackson's dinosaur themed birthday party was Saturday, complete with dinosaur cupcakes, dinosaur coloring sheets(most of which I forgot to put out), and a dinosaur egg/fossil hunt. Originally the party was going to be at the park, and the kids could have went on an excavation for fossils in the sand, but due to weather issues, we just went on a dino hunt at home instead.
Jackson didn't quite understand why he had to wait to open the presents, so we had to put them out of sight until it was time to open them. The funniest part of the party (to me) was when Jack blew out his candles after the first line of "Happy Birthday".
Thanks to everyone who came and helped Jackson celebrate turning two!

2 Words to brighten my day:

No problem on the gift opening- whatever keeps the little ones happy!

And I re-read the post about the difficulty of opening kid toys and laughed and laughed and laughed as hard as the first time! Love it!

It was a great party! And I am still craving that cream cheese frosting even though it's been a couple of days. Did you make it or buy it? I am so pathetic. I hate being pregnant sometimes!
