Elic turns 2!

Elic's 2nd Birthday seemed like forever ago! It has hardly been a couple of weeks I am just so behind :) One his actual birthday which was Election Day, we had the day off from school so we started the morning with a yummy family breakfast. Then I took the kids to go play at one of Elic's favorite places (Monkey's Treehouse). On the way home we stopped and grabbed Elic's other favorite (lunch from Oscar's) took naps then when daddy got home from work we opened presents and went to dinner at Mellow Mushroom! It was a jam packed day...

 Opening presents from mommy, daddy and sissy!
 His most favorite present...tractor trucks from daddy!

So fast forward 4 more days on Saturday, November 10th. We had a huge Fall Bash at our house to celebrate friends and Elic's Birthday! When I say huge I mean 90+ people huge! It was insane but SO much fun. We had a chili cookoff for the adults, bonfire with smores, an outdoor movie for the kids, corn hole...it could not have been more perfect and the weather was AMAZING! It was so meant to be...
 Cupcakes! I love how this table turned out :)

 Welcome! Let's Have a Ball Y'all!
 This is an overview of the setup...to the left up against the garage we had a movie set up for the kiddos and our side yard was open with the play set to play on. The little kid tables sort of divided areas. The bonfire was on the back side of the black fence and then the chili's were setup starting underneath the basketball goal...the space was perfect!
