Eli's 2nd Birthday Party!

We had a great turnout for Eli's party. Thank you to everyone who came!!
The potluck food was fabuluous.


We had a little mishap with the cake. It was all MY fault! I ordered the cake a long time ago, to beat the summer wedding rush with the cake lady. I had planned to have his party on the 25th...and then needed to change the date to accomodate another family party. Oops! I forgot to call the cake lady and change it. So, she is going to do a smaller version of the VeggieTales cake and deliver it on Thursday - Eli's actual birth day.
I'm glad I made cupcakes - for pictures sake, anyway. Only two people at them.
But there was ice cream...and that made the kids happy!
Here is the Bob the Tomato pinata that I made. The kids had a blast ripping into him and getting the bounty of goodies: Teddy Grahams, Fish Crackers, Fig Newtons, Cars Gummy Snacks, Fruit Rolls, Kisses, and mini candy bars. The kids ranged in age from 1 to 14, so I had to be creative with the pinata stuffers. The adults loved the Fig Newtons! haha

The weather was perfect...PTL it didn't rain...He saved it for Sunday instead!
