Barnyard Bash: Part II...Party Time...Part II

Okay, I think this is that last post about the birthday party...not the birthday, just the birthday party. If you recall, Layla and Jenna celebrated the big T-W-O with a Barnyard Bash at our home.  We started the party in the front yard mingling with a few farm animals.  Once the kids were over that, we moved the fun inside and out back.         

H and L thought these ponies were just a fun as the ones out front!

Layla and L worked on a few masterpieces at the coloring table.  

L, G, and B thought a cowbell necklace was the perfect accessory to their outfits.

Layla and H couldn't agree more!

A was having a blast with the Little People Farm.  In fact, she loved it so much, she ended up getting one for her birthday which was just a few days later!

Check out B on top of the slide!  He's ready to make his move!

The S twins are checking out the "pig pen" the girls got from Grandma and Granddaddy.  

Layla and her boyfriends follow suit!

After all that, JP couldn't resist!  Whoa...JP down!

Layla: "Hey, G?  What do you and boys think of my new farm house?"

G: "Um, it's pretty awesome!  Can I have it?" 
G's mommy said she couldn't keep her out of it.  Luckily, G has a birthday coming up and I have a sneaking suspicion she'll be getting something just as spectacular!

Jenna: "Here, sissy, take a drink.  You look thirsty."

L:  "Good idea, Jenna...we should all take a break to refuel!"

Um, Jenna...that's not your cup.  Can't you see I labeled them all with names???

That's better.

"We're getting hungry!!!!"

Lunch is served!

Can you believe all these kids actually sat in their assigned spots and ate lunch???  Never in my wildest dreams...

G: "Take a bite, H, and let me know if it's acceptable."

Cousin Emory was the youngest party guest.  Looks like she was a little partied out!  

Jenna: "Hats off to a great meal!"

Seriously???  So cute!

After lunch, Daddy got everyone's attention so we could sing Happy Birthday to the birthday girls!

Make a wish sweet Layla!

Jenna: "Ooh, Daddy, that looks good!"

Jenna: "I'm gonna have to remove my hat for this!"

Jenna: "Delish!"

I like your approach with the fork, Layla!

Oh yeah, I really like your approach!  Open wide!

JP: "Oh, this is gonna be good!"

H: "Finger-lickin' good!"

J: "That's right, Mommy.  Just hold it right there!"

A: "Who has time for sweets when there are all these animals to take care of?"

Cousin Caroline: "I concur, someone has to look after the livestock!" 

Glad to see the girls could take a little timeout for a pic with their family.  Here's Jenna with her Pop, Aunt Devin, and Lolli.

And here's Layla with her Grandma and Granddaddy. 

Once everyone was all worn out and stuffed to the brim, it was time to head home.  C and one of the S twins are gathering their party favors before heading out.  Thanks for coming, girls! 

Layla and Jenna were so happy so many of their friends could share in their special day.  We are so lucky to have such wonderful friends and family. 

When the last party guest left, the girls were put down for a nap and the grandparents helped tidy up a bit.  I went to lay down for a little shut eye as well, but, as crazy as this sounds, could not sleep a wink.  I kept replaying the day's events in my head.  Words cannot explain just how happy I was that Layla and Jenna had such a wonderful day.   I laid there counting my blessings for the two amazing years these girls have given me and dreamed about all the years to come.  I truly am one lucky, lucky girl!  Happy Birthday LJ and Jen Jen!
