Our baby girl is two. She brings us so much joy. She's a little ball of spunk. She's smart. She's sweet. And we are so happy she is ours.

One of my favorite things to do is plan and throw parties. Her first birthday party was perfectly soft and girly and you can see it here.

Aspens first word was dog and she's obsessed with all dogs so naturally a puppy themed birthday party fit her this year. We hadn't had a party at our new house so we decided to stay home and have the party here. I was worried that it wouldn't turn out well because our house is set up kind of weird for a party but it turned out perfect.

There were puppy ear head bands for the kids to wear and an "Adoption Center" for them to take home a stuffed puppy dog.

For food we had a hot dog bar, which I ended up getting lazy on at the last minute and not cutting up the avocado, tomato, sautéing the onions and making the baked beans and macaroni and cheese but it was still delicious. My personal favorite hot dog is one with sautéed onions, baked beans, bacon bits and avocado slices.

We also had a sweets station which had Pupcakes, Bow-wownies (brownies), Max-a-roons (macaroons) and sugar cookies.

Sweet Sugarlicious Wendi made the cookies, September Moon Cupcakery made the cupcakes and Lavender and Clover made the cute food tags (which were of our dog!).

The cups, plates and napkins were from Love of Character, who also provided the balloon garland and came over and installed it!

Below are just a few of my favorite pictures.... I tend to take WAYYYY too many pictures at events and shoots. What can ya do?!
