Hudson turns 2!

I can’t believe it! How is it that my little baby is two years old? A climbing, bouncing, naked running, ball of non-stop energy from morning until night two-year old! To celebrate we threw him a party with Disney Cars theme (only his favorite movie in the world and one that he quotes lines from). This year, with the adoption, it had to be on a budget. But that doesn’t mean he can’t have an incredibly awesome party, it just meant mom worked over time and drove herself crazy making it perfect. My sister brought back wall decals for Hudson from her trip to Disney World. They were the inspiration for different activities for the party. Flo’s V-8 Cafe and Fillmore’s was the food table. Along with Luigi’s Casa Della Tires which I made out of brownies. Ramone’s was a tattoo station, Curios  for the party favors, Mater’s was fishing for candy, and Doc Hudson’s was a station to build a Lego car. The weather was great and everyone had a blast! We had a great time celebrating with friends and family. Now the fun part – some pictures from his party!

1796The banner that took me forever to get perfect! But I love it. 1794The party favors. (only took me about three hours to make all of these from scratch) 1793 1795The cake! Chocolate candy cactuses, and one of Hudson’s favorite scenes from the movie. This was actually one of my easier cakes to make.

Wish i would have taken a picture the day before right after I styled it. It is Lightning McQueen, but Hudson pulled out the Bantu knots that made the tires. But not to bad for my first shape braiding!
