On Saturday, we had a little party for Jane's 2nd birthday! That morning I was feeling down in the dumps and wasn't motivated to host guests in the afternoon. But as we were finishing up, luckily that changed and I felt much better.
I was feeling pretty burned out from Halloween, but I had everything (minus the balloons) just lying around the house, which made it really easy to put together.
I found a bunch of cute labels on the internet and just printed them off! The deviled eggs weren't hard to make, but peeling them took forever, so I'm glad I did it all that morning.
I've always made cakes for the girls' birthdays, but because I wasn't feeling motivated to prep much before, I just ordered one from Walmart. It was the best $6 spent. I just added the little banner on top and voila! They even had an option for a non-dairy icing, which was perfect for Jane since she is dairy intolerant. 👌
We kept it pretty small with just family and a few friends. Usually we are really trying to push the food on people and always end up with a ton of leftovers, but this time we ate up everything, which was great!
Jane was so cute the whole time. She would jump around and walk on her tiptoes because she was so excited! 😍
We all sang Happy Birthday to her and let her blow out the candles.
She would blow tiny little blows and worked for a while before getting both flames to go out. haha but she was pretty proud of her work. :)
I love this picture so much of Norah in the bottom corner, so excited about the cake. Hahaha!
All the kiddos had a great time playing with all the toys in Norah's room.
We love our sweet little Jane!

We had Jane open a few gifts. Norah and Lucy were very enthusiastic to help take over for her. haha
She got some coloring and sticker books, which will be so great for our trip for Thanksgiving Break!
Jeanne came down last minute for the party and the girls were so happy to see her! 💗
After everyone left, we had Jane open a few more presents from Janel and Grandma Jeanne. She would open one and immediately go for the next present before even seeing what it was haha.

Jeanne gave Jane a new baby doll, which she's been loving on all weekend.
It was a great party and I'm glad it was more simple for me to put together and way less prep work. We love our sweet Jane and I'm feeling really sad she is growing up. 😥
