Second Birthday Party Planning

Harrison and Brooke are going to be two in less than a month. I am finally in full out planning mode for their party. We decided on a Mickey party. Yes it's overdone, but they love Mickey. Brooke says all the characters by name whenever the intro for Mickey Mouse Clubhouse starts. They both get up and dance and point to the TV screaming Mickey. Planning for their party means I have been looking back through pictures of the past two years. It's crazy to see how they went from this...


 to this...


to this...


to this...


and now we're here. Just a couple weeks shy of 2.


Every month of life with these two has been amazing. While I often miss the sweet days of newborn snuggles, I love where we are now. Their personalities, independence, and knowledge amaze me on a daily basis. Before I was pregnant, I always joked that I'd happily birth a two year old. While I'm glad that didn't happen from a sheer size standpoint, I am super excited that we're almost at two. I wouldn't trade the first two years for anything, but this is such a fun age and I'm glad we're here. They say and learn new things every day. I love life with these two. It's so amazing to experience life with them and see it from their point of view, tantrums and all. Forget the "Terrible Twos," I say the "Terrific Twos." I'm sure I'll be regretting that, times two, soon enough. 

To celebrate my munchkins turning two, this is what I have in mind. Birthday brunch, Mickey and Minnie Style.

We already have invitations ordered, printed and as soon as the envelopes get here they'll go out in the mail. They're birthday, and party will be here before we know it. I still have a hard time believe they were born almost two years ago.

The amazing Meredith and Amber from Twin Talk Blog are hosting a link up today in honor of National Multiple Birth Awareness Month. If you love all things twin, stop by the link up to see what other twin bloggers are sharing today. Also, TGIF! Happy Friday!!!

  4. I'm excited (and sad) about mine turning two (not until December) but mine are obsessed with Mickey, too... and it's so gender neutral I KNOW I'm gonna have to do a Mickey/Minnie party, too. Love your ideas and did I mention how adorable your babes are?! <3
