We had a small party for them and their 3 grandparents came all the way to SC to celebrate for a few days.  It was perfect! I know the kiddos were so happy and felt so loved! The theme was Taco Twosday.

Here are some pictures from the party.

Balloons are from Cactus Fiesta. I made the fringe backdrop, instructions are below.

I made this backdrop using four poster boards, tissue paper, and tape.  The first step is taping the poster boards together.  Make sure all your tissue paper is the same size, then fold in half lengthwise. To make the fringe, cut a straight line up the tissue paper starting on the end that isn’t folded. Leave two inches uncut at the top and cut in one-inch sections along the length of your tissue paper. Tape the fringe to the poster board starting at the bottom of the poster boards.  Keep adding layers until the poster board is covered. Easy peasy!

We had a lot of fun with the backdrop!

Yay for a wonderful fiesta for our two dos year olds!!

Now more about the rest of their long birthday weekend…The night before their birthday, we did a photo session and we told them all about how much they were wanted.IMG_8132IMG_8134IMG_8214IMG_8216

The next morning, Lovey and Grumps arrived.  We woke Camden and Ella up with balloons and streamers hanging from their door. They were SO happy!  Ella even kept saying “I happy”, over and over!

They had birthday pancakes for breakfast!IMG_8227.JPG

We spent the rest of the day just hanging out at home.

My dad and Judd worked on their new playground which was a birthday gift from Lovey and Grumps.IMG_8240.JPG

Later, Pappy (Judd’s dad) arrived! Camden and Ella were over the moon to have everyone here!IMG_8506.JPG

The next few days were spent celebrating, playing inside with their new toys…IMG_8262IMG_8268IMG_8508IMG_8509
