This past weekend we celebrated Maggie's 2nd Birthday. Let me just start by saying, I think lightening struck the night she turned 2 because she has developed quite the a-t-t-i-t-u-d-e!
This year, I went with a library/bookworm theme. I purchased old-school library cards and pockets on ebay.
Since we had a big party the weekend before, I figured I should keep Maggie's party to just family so that I didn't have a nervous breakdown.
I packed brown-bag lunches for Jack, Maggie and Mary Kate.
I kept the decorations very simple.
Can we talk about these cupcakes? How great are they? I did however break my number one rule and had colored icing. It was a bit of a mess with the kids. A few pieces of clothing are at the dry cleaners as we speak :)
For the party favors, I came across a quote that I felt was appropriate for this theme and put it on a bookmark for each guest.
Ok, this is a really long post now. Hopefully, you are still with me since I have limited words on here ;)
The bounce house already paid for itself!

At the end of the party, my mother-in-law asked me when the next party was! I quickly replied, "March 2012!" I have to admit, I am a bit partied out. However, as much as it wears me out, I do enjoy pulling together all of the details and spending time with our family!
Happy 2nd Birthday, Maggie!
