Braden's 2nd Birthday Party - Football what else?

For those of you who know Braden you know his favorite thing EVER is football. It might have had something to do with his dad, not sure. The first time Brian showed him the football and got him to say it, it just stuck. SO that became the theme for his party. I had a lot of fun planning it and thanks to my mom she helped me pull it all off.

She found the football mold so we could make a fun cake. We made a chocolate marble cake x2 with a buttercream filling. Putting the two halves together gave us the perfect football shape. We made 6 little footballs for all the kids, they were really cute...you can see a photo later in this post on Braden's plate.
We made some Braden half time treats: swedish meatballs, buffalo chicken, pigs in a blanket, veggies, chips, and dips. Took all day to make but was yummy and fun to eat.

Love this smile!
Making fun music
So Braden only has girlfriends...and there are only girl cousins in our family. But I dont think he minds. Trying ot get 5 toddlers to look in the same direction, real fun. But they actual did all stay seated for a slit second.
Present time. This is Emrie, Braden's favorite little girlfriend. She was a big helper while Braden opened presents.
Emrie got him a little hoop, which he LOVES.

lots of new clothese from Grammy and Papa
The one thing that Brian wanted to get Braden was a basketball hoop. A little too big right now but he loves it. It just means that Brian or I have to help him anytime he wants to play "hoop hoop hoop."

Braden was so excited when everyone started signing to him.
A little help from dad and the candle was out
You can see the cute little footballs. Braden loved his chocolate cake.

Thank you to everyone who came and helped celebrate Braden's 2nd birthday.
