Alice's Second Birthday Party

So Alice turned two.... like 3.5 months ago. I was in the thick of first trimester nausea/exhaustion, just back from vacation and was still determined to make something happen. After some very last minute planning and some very late night crafting we ended up with a 'twinkle, twinkle little star' party in Alice's favourite colour, purple. It was a pretty great day.

There were a few older kids at the party and I wanted a little something to keep the kids entertained so I setup a mini craft table with some foam stickers, pencil crayons and a twinkle, twinkle little star colouring page. Of course being last minute I didn't have time to go buy colouring books so I made a quickie themed colouring page for the kids. You can download the free printable here if you're interested.

Don't look too closely because I totally burnt the cookie star wands... luckily, two year olds aren't too picky.

Thank you so much to all of our wonderful friends and family who came to celebrate with our special little lady!
