We had SO much fun at Ellie’s 2nd birthday party with our family & friends!! The theme was “Ellie is TWO sweet” – the truest statement! Our girl is sweet, kind, & loving to everyone in her life. We are so blessed she’s ours!! Ellie had a blast eating her cookie cake, opening her presents, & seeing all of her favorite people in one place! I kept laughing with our friends that it was SUCH a different party than last year – a 1st birthday party is quite calm compared to a bunch of busy toddlers running around!! It was the BEST kind of chaos for sure!

I want to thank our families for their help with everything for the party! My mom & sister Kendall helped me create the balloon arch the day before. Dyl’s mom & sister made the amazing sprinkle cookies & party favors – “2” cookie decorating kits!! My mom, my twin Kelsey, & her boyfriend DJ helped set up – we couldn’t have done it without them! My sister Kendall took most of these photos so I could enjoy the party! We’re so thankful for each of you!! 

We were planning to have the party in our backyard like last year, but we decided to move it to our church because of rain, & I’m so glad we did! It was so special celebrating Ellie at one of her favorite places. She LOVES going to church & playing with her friends in the “walkers’ room”. I love that we got to make birthday party memories there, too!

I have to share that my favorite “party planning” hack was that I got the cookie cake from Sam’s Club – less than $20, y’all, & it was DELICIOUS! It was also fitting because Ellie loves going on Sam’s runs with me ha!

I’m so excited to share my favorite moments from Ellie’s party!!!
