turning 2

on the 5th my little guy turned 2!

we had a cars themed party for him, with yummy food and fun!

i hung up streamers that i made around the living and dining room and brought out all of his cars toys to make it festive!

we have a tradition of decorating our kids room with balloons the night before there birthday. while he was sleeping, we went into his room and tied balloons to his crib.
for breakfast we had banana pancakes, his favorite, and chocolate donuts stacked as tires.
i made individual bundt cakes and mandy frosted them for me.

our favorite part of the day, came after dinner...the kiddos went to the drive-in. i made these cars our of cardboard boxes and the kids sat in them to watch CARS.

it wouldn't be a drive-in if there weren't snacks. i found CARS marshmallows and added them to the popcorn and m&m's.
i really can't wait until november, when his adoption becomes final so that i can show you pictures of him!


  1. Those cardboard cars are the cutest things I have ever seen! I love how creative you are! You have two very lucky kiddos!

  2. It looks like he had an awesome birthday party! I'm really looking forward to seeing pictures of your new sweet little boy!
