Kinley's 2nd Birthday

Remember that farm themed inspiration post I did a few months back?  If you don't you can read it here. Well it all came together this weekend. Kinley doesn't turn 2 until the 27th but with Thanksgiving we decided to do her party the weekend before.


Things turned out so perfect. My aunt was amazing and did all the animal cutouts, the banner and barns. I put together the signs for the food and placed them with an animal. I also made our matching shirts. I will do a tutorial on the shirts later on because there are so many options with making them and they were pretty easy to do!



My brother in law made the "moo moo" cake, as Kinley called it. For Kinley's 1st birthday he made a princess dress unexpected so now he is always in charge of making the cake. He is pretty talented, don't you think? I sent him a picture of what I wanted and he made it happen. I could not have been happier with how it turned out. Thanks Uncle Danny!



Kinley had a tough morning so I put her down for a power nap but then had to wake her up when everyone came. She was not happy at first and did not want to smile for any photos with mom and dad. Really though, would you be happy if you got woken up out of a deep sleep. I think not! I was determined to get a few pictures whether she smiled or not. Finally she warmed up and I got a few smiles out of her. I have learned if I tell her to show me her pretty smile I will get a decent one out of her. 



She was a little unsure of everyone singing happy birthday to her but did a great job blowing out the candles. She did eat some of her cupcake but she made sure to ask for a spoon first. She hates getting her hands dirty. 




It was too funny watching her open the presents. She is very much the one who checks out a situation and if she is unsure she will ask for help. It was so cute, "mom help pease." Once she understood there were toys inside the bags she was all about it. 


Kinley had a lot of fun and we are very thankful for all our family and friends that came to celebrate with her. She defintiely has a blast with all the balloons. We love her to pieces and will be celebrating her birthday all week long! Happy 2nd birthday Kinley Reese.
