Saturday, we had the girl's 2nd birthday party. And it was SO much fun! Oh my gosh, I think I had as much fun as they had...even though they still don't really quite get that it's a party for them. They had a blast, nonetheless. At their 1st birthday party, Mom and I were already trying to decide what to do for this years'. So far, all two of their birthdays, we've kept the theme around something cold because they were born in the coldest winter in the history of all time. And until they pick their own theme, we'll just keep doing cold stuff. Last year was snowflakes. This year was penguins.
(I borrowed a lot of these pictures from Dad and Papa T [David's Dad]).
And everything was black, white, and all things penguin.
Penguin Caviar (chocolate candies)
Aptenodyte Bytes (chocolate orange cream-filled cupcakes)
Baked Silverfish (it's kind of obvious what they are)
Squid Twists (these are those Synder's of Hanover chocolate-covered pretzels that are AMAZING. I dare to say they're better than Flipz.)
Crustacean Crackers ( bacon-wrapped cheesy butter crackers)
Bacon-Wrapped Cephalopod (bacon-wrapped smokies with brown sugar)
The spread and Mamaw sampling in the background.
We also had fresh glacier water from Antarctica.
"Penguin needs a water break."
"I hear that."
Penguin building station. The kids weren't sure at first what to do with this. Reid grabbed a handful of the "skins" and toted them around on his arm like a rugged trapper in the frozen wasteland carrying penguin pelts home to his ice house.
The hearts for the penguins.
Holland, the professional penguiner.
I adore this picture. Megs and Harps.
Mmm...plastic is delicious.
Such a great day! I was sad it was over. We're already planning next year's par-tay! Unless the girls decide they want a particular theme, of course. Yay for birthdays!!! And penguins!!!
