I still can't believe that 2 years ago this month my sweet miracle was born! Her birthday is a VERY special celebration to us....we were told too many times that she would not survive being born 15 weeks premature.
I found the theme for Tessa's party over a year ago while looking around my favorite party blog....Kara's Party Ideas. I knew I needed to start planning early...like a whole 9 months early!
Though I had been planning for what seemed like a century NOTHING could have prepared me for the monsoon we experienced about an hour before our guests were due to arrive. I'm pretty sure Mother Nature was paying me back for complaining that Tessa's Ladybug Soiree last year must have been the HOTTEST day of the year.
Though the decorations and tents got wet it didn't spoil our fun. Our friends and family had no trouble trampling through the mud to get to the Popcorn Toss, Duck Pond, Gone Fishing or Bean Bag Toss Games to fill their goody bags with Goldfish in a Bag (which I made myself!), Bags of Cotton Candy, Animal Crackers, Punching Balloons and Tattoos.
All in all (even with tile floors covered in mud) it was a wonderful day. And not even the rain could keep us from celebrating our miracle girl!
