Celebrating John Deere Style

As you know, my little man is obsessed with tractors. Actually to be honest he is in love with anything that has an engine and moves. You name it trucks, trains and airplanes he loves them all. But his first love was tractors and since Papaw is a John Deere supporter on the farm, I decided that would be his theme for his second birthday. 

We were actually able to plan his party for the day of his birthday. This never seems to happen with my kids, Saturdays just never fall on their days. But his birthday does fall over fall break, and the weather is so unpredictable. 

We planned to host outside the barn, just like last year. But honest to goodness, as soon as it hit 2 o'clock the rain started. We rushed our little stressed out butts around pushing chairs, tables and decorations inside the barn. It was complete chaos for a few minutes which is not how I imagined but B could of cared less as long as he had Charli's gator to sit on. 

We had also picked to have a chili bar not realizing the high for the day was 80. Although, it was a great hit and everyone enjoyed it. 

Bryar was way to busy to enjoy the chili bar or hot dogs. Although, he was completely ready to play in his cupcake. 

His little green icing faced smile cracks me up. He really loves anything sweet and especially if it involves making a mess! I had to make him a little mad and take it away or else I knew we would all be covered in green. 

He opened gifts with our help since he wanted to stop and play with everything unwrapped. 

Bryar mainly wanted to spend his day playing, so after gifts were opened we let him play away with his friends. We had shelled corn in sandboxes and the water table along with tractors. That was probably the biggest hit of the day. 

We have party favors of tractor cookie/sandwich cutters. They had tags that I found online on Birthday Express' blog that could be customized and were free to print. We added the text of "Thank you for being a "Deere" friend. I love party favors that are useful and will not be thrown to the side. My kids love sandwiches that are in shapes. If you do this as a favor, I recommend buying in bulk from eBay. 

When the party wrapped up we enjoyed extra time with family. It always seems that cleaning up goes much raiser than setting up. 

I love these two photos. The first one is 3 generations; Papaw, Daddy and Bryar. 

The party was such fun for us all thanks to our friends and family. 

Bryar and Charli Beth took the easy ride home. Within a minute of everyone leaving our home, Bryar fell over asleep. He woke up in the best mood ever then went to bed very easy and slept until 10. Either he really enjoyed his tractor birthday or being two is very rough on the little guy!

Waaaa how is he 2? That means Hayes will be 2 in 2 months. I am in slight denial. It really shouldn't come as any surprise though. He has started the terrible 2's in full force!
Whatever you are too good at decorating! That party had awesome decor!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
