Jude and Sloane's birthday party was so much fun (ignore the fact that it was two months ago)!
I kept everything fairly simple because 1) I am not crafty and 2) We're on a budget. We invited quite a few people thinking no one would come because 1) It was a Saturday during football season and 2) It's a birthday party for two very small children. However, almost everyone replied yes (cue temporary anxiety attack from yours truly). It meant so much to me that so many friends were a part of their special day. I will be the first to admit that many of Jude & Sloane's gifts were immediately packed away and then moved under the tree to be re-opened on Christmas. Don't worry, we told them who gave them each gift (unless they really loved it and then we took full credit). ;)
The (loosely-based) theme was "Early Bird Birthday Brunch" and I'll let the pictures and side comments tell the rest of the story.

I miss having that many donuts in our home.
They each had a Happy Birthday book for guests to sign.

Party favor: Gummy worms ("The early bird catches the worm")
We never got a picture with everyone but this one had quite a few.
I snapped his chin with the hat. :(
She had absolutely no interest in her cake.

My brother flew down for their birthday. It meant the world to me!
Our gift to them. They love it!
Happy, Happy Birthday to Jude & Sloane!
