Steppin' out to Bennett's 2nd birthday party!

Even though Bennett's actual Birthday was on Thursday, Jan 26 - we celebrated on Saturday! We kept it small to family and close friends. It was perfect! Unlike at Bennett's 1st birthday, I was REALLY bad at taking pictures this year. I just really wanted to be present more and enjoy myself. We did get lots of video, though. I just haven't gotten around to uploading them quite yet!!

We did a Toy Story theme, it was a hit with all the young kids. I mean really, what kid doesn't love Toy Story?

{his hair looks so silly here - you can thank his daddy for that! ha ha}



On Philip: Button up shirt - Brooks Brothers // Jeans - Levis
On Bennett: Head to toe Tea Collection
On Mama: Shirt (that isn't a true maternity shirt but I tried to make it one) - Forever 21 // Jeans - Motherhood Maternity

Linking up with Steppin' Out Saturday.





I'm so thankful for the friends and family we have near us to help celebrate. We had a really fun time watching Bennett open his presents and enjoy his cake! We love love love him so much!!!

It looks like such a lovely birthday! My eldest turned seven januari 26th. Seven! That's so big. I remember him being such a cute little thing as Bennet is. Well, he's still cute, ofcourse, but at the same time soooo big :)

Good for you for choosing to be present and soak it up! The pictures you have are perfect and made me smile because we are doing a Buzz and Woody 2nd BD party for my little one in March.  She is obsessed with those two  characters! lol.  Can't believe your little guy (and my gal) are 2 now!!  He was such a little guy when I first started following your blog!

Happy Birthday, sweet little man! My 2 yr old is in LOVE with Toy Story. Just now she saw the pictures and squealed "Baby Story!" That's what she calls it cuz of that creepy baby in the 3rd one. lol. She doesn't quite get the creepiness. :)

Happy Birthday Bennett! Charlie has that same lawn mower and would like me to tell you that it can also be used to mow the snow, on the rare occasion that it snows around here!

I love that cake. Too cute. He looks like he had a blast. We are in the middle of planning Landon's 2nd birthday party coming up in March. Oh, and the side part....I think it's adorable. :) I actually part Landon's hair that way. I've done it since he had enough hair to part, lol. I think it's adorable that way.
