My little boy turned 2! It was a fast and furious day with lots to be thankful for. First of all, it didn't rain! It had rained a lot the day before so I was so glad when I woke up and it wasn't raining. I had been praying all week about it. God is in every detail even when I was putting everything together down to the last minute. Thank you to all our friends and family for making this day special.

The cooler is my mom's, the plates are my sister's
You can't really see them but the styrofoam cups I stamped with a red anchor
The adorable napkins my friend Amy bought for me. They are red with white and blue anchors. I was so excited when she showed them to me - thank you Amy!
I was going for an eclectic lounge look. (The lanterns are my mom's)
This was actual sand and shells from my honeymoon 11 years ago!
My mother in law helped me make these pillows and I cut out 2's and applied them to the front.
One of the children's tables. I found these great sand and sea creatures at Hobby Lobby and made the sand cut out on the blue paper for them to put the stickers on. The bucket in the background was for fishing with those magnetic fish.

My sister also made the cupcakes and they were delicious. I purchased the flowers from Tom Thumb.
I put this bunting up with the 2's on it about 5 minutes before the party - the mirror was too much by itself. I was a little stressed at that point!
So I made this menu before realizing the lobster cookies with the cookie cutter I mentioned here were not going to work. I made 5 batches of dough and started using the cookie cutter about 10pm 3 nights before the party but the lobster kept falling apart and dough kept crumbling. It was not meant to be and I had a lot to do so I gave up and moved on.
BooBoo and Pappaw made the french fries and Nick made the burger sliders.
We also had chicken nuggets and goldfish for the kids.
The tags on the limbs were Grayson's top 10 favorite things and the pictures were his most hilarious moments of this last year. Each child got a small bucket with a bag of whale crackers.
My two special blessings! So thankful you are both in my life.
