Trudy Turns 2

Trudy celebrated her second birthday with a certain blue donkey. It's no secret that she loves Eeyore. It was one of her first words (before mommy and daddy even!) We had a hard time finding Eeyore party supplies since Pooh seems to take center stage in the Hundred Acre Woods so we had to get creative. The custom Eeyore cake made at a local bakery took center stage for sure.

Disney Family has a  free pin-the-tail on Eeyore printable that can be pieced together. My dad had it printed at work so it would be in once piece and a little more sturdy.

It was impossible to find an Eeyore mylar balloon locally so my mom improvised with some Eeyore stickers.

And our local Kroger had bouquets on sale for $1! I couldn't resist these flowers that looks a bit like thistles. Perfect to represent our gloomy friend.
Sweet T's Eeyore blanket and her giant stuffed Eeyore decorated the gift space

And the birthday girl herself wore an Eeyore dress that Mom-mom made for her. Wish she could have been here to see her in it!
We kept things very low-key only inviting seven family members and our neighbor "Grandma T." Hopefully I can get away with at least one more birthday like this before Trudy expects to have her peers there. ;) She got lots of thoughtful gifts and was pretty excited about the Pillow Racer her dad and I got for her.
And her purple horse PJ's!

Trudy cried when we all burst into the birthday song

But calmed down when she realized tasty cake was on the way.

She enjoyed eating the buttercream frosting and leaving the rest!
And...get ready for a pic dump.
