The day our lives changed forever.

SHE arrived.

Carlisle Victoria Edwards

put on your dancing shoes and tie those bows,

Carlisle’s 2nd Birthday

saturday, January 26th
10:00 – 11:30am

Carlisle’s Princess Playroom

So they came! Carlisle's friends came and helped our family ring in her 2nd birthday.
They danced, ran, jumped, twirled, laughed and wiggled to their hearts content.
I am still finding cake icing and donut sprinkles all over the house!


Honestly the best pictures he's ever taken. I am SO not-biased!

There were donuts. You know the yummy kind. With chocolate glaze and sprinkles. Yes, this aerobics instructor LOVES Krispy Kreme. And there were bisquits, fresh fruit and hot coffee. Oh and did I mention 30 pulsating, excited, wired-on-sugar children??!!?

My friend Victoria called me an hour or so after she left with her 4 and said, "Jennie, I got to thinking...oh my gosh, you had a jump castle in your living room!"
Girly fun secrets!
Friends started arriving....


We moved upstairs to the Princess Playhouse, blared the music and kicked up our heels!

Carlisle's Party Playlist:

Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

Hokey Pokey Party Mix

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

The Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round

Itsy Bitsy Spider

She LOVED it.

All of the family was together! It was amazing.

Mom and Dad now have 4 (soon-to-be-5 grandchildren under 2 years old!)

We missed you Uncle Andy, Aunt Lara and Maleah!
She loved, snuggling with and sleeping on, Pa Pa.

Trying on her gifts. She put everything on at once!
