Sesame Street 2nd Birthday Party

We had our big blowout birthday party for Evan’s 2nd birthday yesterday. We had 24 or 25 people (I keep losing count). The weather was a bit rainy so most everyone was in the living room. Everyone was good….there wasn’t any fighting or crying…oh and the kids were good too! 🙂 The adults had ribs and chicken while the kids had pizza (Elmo’s favorite food). We had a chocolate Elmo cake for desert. Note to self…next time don’t show Evan the cake toppers before the party b/c he WANTS them NOW! We bought a pinata but then decided to use it as decoration instead of as a pinata b/c I was really worried that Elmo coming apart & candy spilling out of his butt may have scared them for life. All the toddlers got goodie bags with Dorothy Crackers (goldfish), Cookie Monster Cookies (Famous Amos individual size cookies), Bert and Ernie’s Bubbles (spillproof bubble thing) and a Big Bird blowout thingy (I have no idea what those are actually called….you know…the think with the paper curl on the front). We all had a great time and the white carpet (which I soooo did not pick) in the living room survived!


Hanging out in the backyard between rain showers. That’s Evan’s birthday playhouse on the left from me & Dewey.


The goodie bags and Elmo!
Mark and Doug on Daddy duty! Hold on…..that’s not Mark’s baby! That’s Lauren! Mark is stepping in because Coz was on his way to/in Fort McMurray.

Getting ready to blow out the candle….it’s a bit FAR away. Daddy had to help out a bit!

Evan loved the hats in theory but REFUSED to wear one!

Yum!

Opening presents….and a random picture of me to remind you that I do actually exist. Not that you would know it from our picture files!

Evan got a super cool recycling truck from Georgia and James. He has had so much fun “recycling” all his puzzle pieces, etc & then dumping them back out.

Daniel is always VERY smiley!

Georgia and Kate love the blowout thingies!

Sign I made (Angelle helped!)

Sounds like it was a great party. Good call on the piniata. I think the falling apart stuff coming out of Elmo's butt thing might have been a little scaring.

I appreciate the Sesame Street artwork even more after the pictures! Great party, we might have to get Kohen a "recycle/garbage truck" too. Who knew it would be such a hit??
