Arboretum Birthday Fun!

Honey and I took the kids to the Dallas Arboretum last week to see the awesome pumpkins and to have a little birthday celebration for my big 3-1! The weather was perfect and pumpkins were amazing!

Very tricky getting G to smile at the camera!
how 'bout a gourd on your head? Cinderella's carriage, they had a little fairy tale them going on.

She promised this one was on the ground and didn't get picked:)

This "princess" as AL called her was having some photos taken but went along great with their fairytale theme:)!

Sweet Honey with her love bugs.

My little pumpkin head with a pumpkin!

We then headed to none other than chick-fil-a which was part of the bribing during picture taking with Anna. Clearly bribing does not work with Graham yet. After some chick we stopped by Society Bakery! Holy Moly! You must try it if you are in the Dallas area! We sampled a few cupcakes and took the rest home to Daddy. My favorite was banana chocolate chip!

Thank you Honey Bears for such a fun day!!!

Graham's Tailgate!!!

We had such a fun time celebrating Graham's 2nd Birthday with a tailgate before Daddy's game. Unfortunately Daddy and Papa couldn't attend for obvious reasons. Mimi and PawPaw came in town and helped with the kids all afternoon Friday so I could set up the party, and Honey spent all afternoon helping set up and sitting with our tent until it was time for the party. We had a few close friends, family and our wonderful coaching families and had the best time eating, playing and gearing up for the game. Here is some of the food and some decor from home that is in Graham's room. The pictures hang on his wall and are pics of his Daddy, Grandfathers and Great-grandfather all playing football.
cheese ball!

pizza that was supposed to look like a #2 in pepperonis:)

pretty chain link fence background:)

Honey made these adorable strawberries.


couldn't get this pic to turn.

Two girlies with big eyes!

Entertainment that we ordered for the party, ha! Policemen on horseback that was big hit with the kids!

Ashley and I with Ms. Jones! Ms. Jones was our high school cheerleading sponsor and is now assistant principal at MHS.

Mimi taking great care of G during the party!

drinks: water and blue and yellow gatorade so we all could stay hydrated for the big game!

Allie and Darby doing a little cheer for the lions.

Game time!

It was such a fun night and definitely a party we will repeat in a few years! I am sure many more football parties are in Graham's future! And I have to say this was one of the easiest, least stressful parties I have had. It helps when most of the decor comes from your house or your husbands office!
