Little Man's ShrekTacular 2nd Birthday!!!

Today my Little Man turns the BIG 2! We celebrated yesterday with a Shrek extravaganza. You may or may not know, but Shrek party supplies are a bit on the difficult side to find. We were forced to get extra creative to make this a ShrekTacular party. 

As the guests arrived they were greeted by a banner with some of our favorite Shrek characters!

I made CJ a special birthday banner to hang over the dessert table from scrapbook paper.

We set up a table with all of the goody bags for the kids to take home. Each little guest had a canvas tote bag with their name and inside were Shrek coloring books, stickers, home made "ogre-doh", temporary tattoos for the boys and little tiaras for the girls. There were Shrek silly bands for the older kids. 

We made cookies embellished with 2 on them as well as gingy cookies. 

A plush Donkey guarded the food table. We also had two small pumpkins and a jar of eyeballs as decoration. 

I made home made cake pops and wrapped blocks of styrofoam to display them on the dessert table. They were so yummy, and easy to make! 

A fabulous local baker made CJ's Shrek swamp house cake.

The dessert table- what a spread!

I decorated store bought cupcakes with home made cupcake toppers.

I made little cards with some quotes from the Shrek movies and put them out around the food and dessert.

I made Little Man a special Shrek Birthday shirt. I didn't get a really good picture of the front.

All of the kids really enjoyed playing in CJ's new playhouse!

And he had a blast opening up all of his wonderful presents!

The last picture taken of the day, which was the last picture of me with my ONE year old.

What a wonderful day we had spending it with our wonderful family and friends. Our little family is so blessed with so many great people. It still seems like it was only yesterday we brought him home from the hospital, were feeding every couple of hours and watching him take his first steps. And today my Little Man turns TWO (sniffle). 

Also, I made a video and showed it at the party. It is pictures and special moments of our Little Man from the last two years.
