Mia's Official Birthday Party!!

We had Mia's official birthday party on Sunday night at our home. Even though her birthday was October 29, we had way too many big things happening so we had to put off her party until this past Sunday. It was a pretty low key party. It was pretty much just family (and a few friends) but we did get a jumper (Mia love jump houses) and we did have a bunch of kids present.

Aunt Cassie and Mia

Mia with her baby (sorry the pictures are not great quality- not sure why)

Laila, Cassie and Laura. Laila and Laura are my best friends since 7th grade. Lai lives here and we get together all the time but Laura (front in blue--they are identical twins so its hard to tell them apart) is a doctor in Manhattan and sadly does not get to come home that often. Luckily, she is home now and was able to come to Mia's party!!

All the girls-- I hate myself in pictures-- ugg!!!

All the men and Savannah. (my dad-- Savannah, my brother Brad, Chuck, Kevin and Kevin's dad Don)

The Big boys (Owen, Carson, Ethan and Christian)

The Woman (Amy, Susan, Me, Lynsee (sister in law), Mary, and my mom)

Mia playing with the big kids on the basketball court

Getting ready to sing Happy Birthday!!!! Mia was sooooo excited!!

Oh the anticipation!!

Blowing out the candles

Yaaaa!!! She blew them out!!

Licking the frosting off the candle

Opening Mia's gifts was a lot of fun. She got into it this year and loved the gifts!

She got this shopping cart thing with wooden fruit that is cut in half with Velcro connecting the pieces. It comes with the knife she is holding and she can cut the pieces apart. She loves it and has been playing with her cart nonstop ever since.

Happy 2nd Birthday Sweet Girl!!! We Love You!!!!
