Atalie's 2nd Birthday Party

 We had Atalie's 2nd Birthday Party today.

 It was a beautiful day outside so the adults socialized inside while the kids all ran wild outside. 

Many of our friends and family members were able to spend the afternoon with us, eating lunch and celebrating our Bitty.  I didn't get many pictures of our guests, because I only really took pictures while everyone was eating, and no one wants their picture made while taking a bite out of a messy barbecue sandwich..

Every time I asked Atalie what kind of party she wanted to have, her response was always different.  So we just did everything in pink and then bought a pack napkins of each of her favorite characters.  She was thrilled to have Elmo, Dora, Hello Kitty, and the Disney Princesses all in attendance. 
The food was all wonderful (because I ordered it from a great BBQ place instead of trying to cook it) and Atalie enjoyed it as much as anyone.  Topless of course, because she knows that she has to take her shirt off to eat messy foods.. it helps Mommy out with the laundry. 

 She has been singing "Happy Birthday" to herself since January, so when all of her friends and family sang it to her, she thought it was pretty great!

 We had asked about 100 times since we picked them up for a, "Pink cupcake, please!"

 Aunt Libby helped her eat the cupcake, 

and her Daddy and friends helped her open her gifts. 

It was a wonderful day celebrating God's gift to us.

We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you... And so from the day we heard about you, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding. Colossians 1:3,9

**My sweet friend, Shannon, made Atalie's outfit and I had already bought the fabric to make the bunting and the large 2.  I thought it was so sweet that it was the exact same fabric! God is in the details.
