As I mentioned before, we kept Brody's birthday party this year a family affair. I could not have been happier with my decision all the way through the end. I didn't have it in me to throw the big soiree and several events leading up to his party kept proving that my decision was the right one!!! One example included a knock at our door as the guests were arriving letting us know that there was a water pipe busted near by and our water was going to be turned off in 5 minutes. No water. No flushing toilets. No cleaning dishes. No water..... We filled up a bath tub and managed to make the toilet function, but imagine how we would have felt if we had a house full of 60 guests????? The water didn't get turned back on until after midnight which meant there were lots of dirty dishes in our kitchen!!! I digress.
Brody had a blast eating his birthday cupcake before dinner, singing along to the Happy Birthday song, tearing open all his gifts and playing with his cousins! It was a simple and perfect evening.
A few simple details from the party...We served sliders, grilled chicken, pulled pork, Chinese coleslaw, crack potatoes, cake and cupcakes!
Two is such a fun age. He surprises me every day. I loved celebrating him being two and look forward to all the birthdays to come!
