As you know, Luke’s 2nd art birthday party was this past weekend and we had an ABSOLUTE BLAST! There was one point in the birthday party that is imprinted on my mind. Everyone had gathered around to sing Luke, “Happy Birthday.” Daddy Russ and I were at the front holding Luke and I looked around at everyone singing to celebrate our little man and I was overcome with joy. It really struck me that we are surrounded by friends and family that God has placed in our lives. We are so grateful for each and every one of them and it meant the world to us that they were there to share this special day.

Now on to the party details!! The party was themed, “Mini Masterpieces” and was an art party filled with activities to allow children to CREATE, IMAGINE, INSPIRE and DREAM!

    I can’t believe he’s already 2! Didn’t you just post pictures from his first birthday party? Why does time have to fly by so quickly?

    Mamaw loved the theme of this party! Too many children in this world do not have someone in their life to challenge them to dream, imagine, and create. And I’ve always liked bright primary colors! By the way, the rainbow cake was delicous!!

    I was wondering if you sell your framed signs as a printable. Like the ones that say, “play dough table, food for thought”… ..

      I’m so sorry but I don’t have them anymore or I’d give them to you. They were lost after a computer crash unfortunately. I’m sorry!
