We celebrated my sweet Bre with a small Minnie Mouse themed party at our house. I wanted to keep it really simple because I am finding that less is more these days! Aubrey has found a new love for all things Minnie so I thought it would be the perfect theme.
We have mostly family and a few close friends out for lunch on Saturday and although rain threatened us that morning, it turned out to be a glorious day.
My sis made the adorable cake and it tasted fabulous. My sis is amazing...steps in and helps in anyway possible and is as creative as they come. She just whipped up some Minnie chocolate chip cookies for favors...would have probably taken me three days to do.
Aubrey had a blast playing with her friends and getting to just be the center of attention. She always gets shy when lots of people are around, but I know she was having a great time.
FINALLY one of her smiling and actually looking like she was enjoying herself!
We had so many special friends there to make the day even more fun!
I found this adorable piñata at Wally World where instead of beating it with a stick (how barbaric!) you just simply took turns pulling a string until one magically let the candy loose (much more lady like!) It was a huge hit with the kids.
And of course blowing out candles and eating cake was a must!
Family shot...even though I am not a fan of my photos right now...it's a must we get the three of us. Next bday party for Bre will be with brother!
I could cry just thinking how quickly these last two years have flown by and how incredibly special each day with Aubrey has been. She is the absolute joy of our lives and I am savoring each moment I have with her. They are only tiny for such a short period of time and I'm trying my hardest to kiss her a little longer, read a few extra stories, sing lots more songs and savor each hug and cuddle. I'm so thankful the Lord has blessed us with Aubrey Lane and I can't wait to see what the future holds for her little life.
Love you Bre Lane!
