Sadie Turns 2!!

For the last week Sadie has been asking "Is it me happy day??" She was so excited when her "happy day" finally got here!  We started the morning with Lucky Charms (a major treat, we have a no chocolate, no rainbow cereal rule in this house).  Needless to say, all the kids loved it.

After breakfast we started getting ready to party! I love when the kids birthdays fall on a weekend so that we can celebrate on the actual day!

I caught this cute shot with Daddy before the party started.
Sadie loves Elmo and especially loved her Elmo cake!
The birthday girl was escorted to her bounce house by our sweet neighbor Nate.  She is just a wee bit smitten with him!
Happy bouncing birthday girl!
Lina and Gus! We love having all the Arnolds around! They are such great friends!
Sadie surrounded by boys eating lunch.
Lauren and Sadie hung out a lot at the party, they love each other! It is so fun for them to grow up together!
Julie helped Lina and Audrey get all the eggs out of the chicken coop! We love playing with our friends, especially when they help us with our chores!
Soon it was the time Sadie had been waiting for! Cake time!
Yay for our big 2 year old!
Mmm, the candle frosting is always the best part of the cake, right?
Sadie had a lot of fun opening her gifts. She loved this stuffed Minnie Mouse from Aunt Joanne.  It spent the afternoon in the bounce house with her and now it is tucked in right next to her in bed.
Andy and Sophia were helping her open her gifts. Everything she opened she immediately wanted to play with. 
Carter kept running by keeping us all entertained!
My kids are so lucky to have great friends. I am so lucky they have great friends, friends who want to be helpers and love each other so much.  And it kind of makes sense that our kids friends are so cool, because our friends are amazing. Days like today really drive that home.
Sadie's party started at 11 and the last of our friends went home at almost 5. It was a great day with so many awesome friends. Sadie didn't nap at all, so she was early to bed, tucked in with gifts and sleeping on her new cow pillow. She is one lucky little girl, but I think we are the luckiest ones of all!!
