"we're suckers for our girl..."

ava's 2nd birthday celebration was a sWeeT success!

since she is obsessed with only seemed right to have a lollipop party!!! for as long as i can remember, this little one has thoroughly enjoyed partaking of yummy confections on a stick!!!!! i keep thinking that the luster will wear off, and i know our day is coming...but for now, dumdums get us through just about anything life has to offer!!!! grocery runs, road trips, or shots...she's a happy camper with a "gucker" (what she used to call them!!!) in her hand!!!!!

we could not have asked for a more beautiful day for our beautiful little's girl's birthday party! it was perfect! i was able to transform our front yard into a "candyland" just in the nick of time (thank you, mom, jeffrey, & unc...couldn't have done it without you)!!!

our guests were treated to lots of suckers...with i think both kiddos and adults alike...enjoyed!!!

there was lots of bouncing, riding, licking, running, licking, more bouncing...and more licking!!!

ava had a ball and spent most of the morning walking around with a bouquet of suckers in her hand! i joked with jeffrey that i wish we had had a bell that rang every time she opened a new sucker! she was in lollipop heaven!!!! and definitely on sugar overload!!! i wanted to replace her handful of sticky suckers with a bouquet of broccoli!!!! you only turn 2 though once i suppose!!!

after a sweet birthday serenade by some close friends and family, we sent all of our guests home with their own jars of suckers! everyone needs their own stash of sugar right?!!!?!!!?

it was such a sweet celebration...perfect in every way! i am blessed every single day...but it is in these special times, that my heart becomes so full it could overflow. i have now been a mommy for 7+ years...but each time one of my precious daughters blows out those candles on their cake...i am once again reminded of the wonderful privilege i have been given. there is no greater gift in life!!!

we love you, sweet ava! you're no doubt the cutest lollipop in the bunch!!!!
