Our Little Lady is Two!

We celebrated Kennedy's second birthday with a ladybug party on Sunday. It was such a fun theme to work with and I loved putting it all together. I was running a bit behind schedule, but thankfully my mom and mother-in-law willingly helped and I had all the food on the table before all the guests had arrived. Kennedy seemed to enjoy the attention and celebration more this year and everyone (I think) had a good time.

Pictures are a little out of order, but there are so many that it was harder than usual. My apologies.

The favor table.
I set up this "sweets" table in the entry way and loaded up little bags for each of the kids as they left. I know candy isn't always the preferred gift to give a little one, but I figured parents could snack a little too.

Little Lady appetizers - I skipped the chive antennae, but I figured ladybugs don't even have antennae and I was running late!

Darling sugar cookies that I found on Etsy. They looked a little better than they tasted, but it was all about the theme and I figured I could certainly not do any better myself!

What a cake!

Yummy mini-Italian club sandwiches. Thank you Ali and Giada! They were a snap to make and tasted so good. Here's the recipe if you're interested:

Kennedy and her Papa

Sometimes I can't get enough of that face.

She's definitely a daddy's girl. Looks a bit like him, too, don't you think?

Cake time

Trying desperately to get some good pictures with family - we were so thankful Nana was still here for Kennedy's party.


Her favorite toy of the day - a Little People Fairy Tree house

Enjoying their ladybug lollipops post party. I shutter to think about how much sugar they consumed this week, yikes!

Enjoying her new camping chair from Aunt Peg.

Now that's fashion. After a fun party and a good nap, Kennedy was ready to play! The weather was beautiful and sunny and we couldn't have asked for a better day. We love you, Kennedy, all the sweet and sass and spunk.
