Karis’ Zoo Party!

May 21, 2017

Karis’ turns three next week and we celebrated a tiny bit early today with a zoo party (Karis’ choice! After asking several times, “are you sure you don’t want a princess party??”) I did NOT want to start planning and then she all of a sudden wants the good old Princess party of every three year old girls dream! haha SO a zoo party it was and it was such a blast!

Who else gets seriously carrier away with parties! UGH, I know I am not alone! Totally worth is though when you see you kiddos have the time of their lives!

Are you kitten me?

June 6, 2016

Karis is Two years old and I can hardly believe it! She’s smart, silly, and sweet and we love her so so so much (really though, like so so so much!) We celebrated her birthday with a kitty party! We are so blessed to have friends and family that love her as much as we do and we wanted to explode her little two year old brain by throwing a party just for her! Here are some highlights of the day!
