Lovie Bunny Birthday Party

Camille's second birthday theme was in honor of her lovie bunny. Sometimes traditions just happen on accident, and as it happened Aiden and Gavin's second birthday theme was their lovie. Aiden's was a turtle and Gavins was his piggie.  As luck would have it Camille's birthday fell just after Easter so I was able to find some good bunny items!

Camille and Lovie Bunny

I got my invitation here. Then adapted it by adding the carrots along the bottom (these same little carrots are embroidered along her lovie bunny) and then created a carrot address label as well as a return address bunny sticker.


 For decoration I grew some wheat grass in pink pails and for favors I found these cute bunny baskets and filled them with bunny themed items.

A close up of the goodies: mini marshmallows (bunny tails), pink heart shaped marshmallows (bunny noses), goldfish in a baggie with green tissue and curling ribbon (orange carrots), chocolate bunnies and lastly is a wind up toy of chomping bunny teeth.

 Here is Camille examining her goldfish carrot. They turned out super cute!

The outside table. Little bunny place mats, goodie bags, grass pails with balloons and a vase of peonies, one of my favorite flowers, in the center.

 Inside she had her tiered smash cake with white fondant bunnies and fondant carrots.

Around her cake were more favor bags.

The menu: Carrot burgers, bunny salad (pear halves), rabbit lettuce, a fruit basket and carrots with dip.
I wish i had gotten better pictures of the food especially of the carrot burgers they were so delicious!

 Her happy birthday sign and one of the cupcake stands.
 Custom water bottles.
 Carrot juice (it was really peach lemonade)

 Carrot nibbles were also set around for little bunnies to munch on.

My mom made her dress, isn't it amazing? The dress is perfect for Camille's spunky attitude.

Now, on to the Celebration with CAKE...

She was able to blow out her own candles.

 Sweet Camille fed her brothers cake before herself.

Then after she dug in she fed everyone else...
her Mommy,
her Daddy, 
 her Nana,
 her Aunt Heather,

her Papaw,
and lastly her neighbor Mr. Furia.

Happy Birthday, we love you!

Camille showing TWO!

We were missing a few family members but had to get a group shot anyway. Thank you for all your help and support to pull yet another party off!

Happy 2nd Birthday Miss Camille

It is hard for me to believe this wonderful blessing has been in our lives for two years. She brings so much joy, laughter and happiness into our home. Thank you God for our sweet Camille!

A little walk down memory lane... Her BIRTHday cake in the hospital.

 Her First birthday.

We take a photo first thing in the morning of each little on their birthday.

 Her birthday dinner was baked chicken with veggies, spinach and of course cupcakes for dessert.

 Her cupcakes had to have a bunny on them which was fondant, as well as the carrots, on top of chocolate cake with buttercream frosting. YUM!

 Aiden lit her birthday candle, I'm not sure why she only ended up with one candle.
 Here are all the littles being silly after dinner.

I want to remember all of her nicknames she has acquired in her two years of life.  Most often it is Miss Camille or Miss Moonie, also Millie, Curly Girlie, Stinky Pinky, Silly Camillie-E and Baby Sister.

Happy Easter

Aiden went down to peek first, then Gavin went down and started digging.

 Hunting at the house...

 Then breakfast THEN candy - that was torture!
 We have a set of 3 nesting bunny bowls, Aiden requested they have their cereal out of them on Easter morning. Great idea!
 Okay, now candy! Aiden's is all sorted.
 Photos before church
 I just love their outfits from the Children's Place.
 After church we were invited over to a friend's home for lunch and ANOTHER egg hunt. 
Seriously, is this their 6th egg hunt in two weeks?

 Another family shot, this time without the boys sweaters.
