I simply cannot believe I am already planning Khloe Ruth's Second Birthday. Like really? She has been with us for two whole years?
I find myself thinking all the time how I thought I knew what it would feel like to have a Daughter. I thought I knew how much fun it would be to get lost in the Little Girl Department in Target and I thought I knew how my heart would pitter patter laying in the bed twirling her hair in my fingers. I thought I knew how great it would feel to call out "Good Morning Princess" every day. And I thought I knew what it be like to watch Travis have a little girl.
Truth is, I really had no idea at all how all the feels would feel.
It's just so much more y'all.
Anyway, in the spirit of planning her Second Birthday Party I wanted to share the photos from her First Birthday!
Only a year late, right?
During Khloe Ruth's First Year with us, she was quickly nicknamed Sugar Lump. I have no idea who started it or how it got started, but it stuck. And to this day we still call her Sugar Lump.
So naturally the theme was Sweet as Sugar!
My Mama and I had so much fun with this! And I won't even tell you how long we spent on that wall back there. Measure, cut, fray, tape. Repeat.
It came out so perfect though!
We had so many yummy, sugary goodies! If it was dippable, we dipped it! I think my most favorite was the Nutter-Butter Cookies made to look like ice cream cones! There wasn't a dipped thing left in the house!
Khloe Ruth's beautiful cake (and the Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes and the Reese's Cupcakes) were made by none other than Aimee Baker with Baker'z Joy. She has been making our cakes for years and has never disappointed us! They're as yummy on the inside as they are adorable on the outside!
We had Homemade Lemonade on tap and with those cute straws ... We also added some Popcorn and ChexMix too. We all know everyone needs a little something salty with all the sweetness!
Adults and Kiddos alike had fun with this game! I'll never forget when Mrs. Marie got it exactly right!
I would love to say she devoured her cake, but she didn't. She ate the dang Nutter-Butter Cookies the whole time instead.
Whew. I cannot believe she is about to be Two! We've already started the Party Planning, my Mama actually started months ago. And this year's theme? You'll have to wait to see! Hopefully not a whole year though ...
Sweet Dreams Y'all.
