Cooper & Elliott’s Car Party!

April 13, 2013

A few months ago, Jenny (Elliott’s momma) and I were talking birthdays, and the idea of a joint birthday party came up. Of course our boys love all the same things – cars, trains, tractors, etc., so that made it easy. The more we talked about it, the more fun it got (and the crazier we got, of course). I think our husbands appreciated us having each other as well :) The sad part is that these guys are moving in TWO weeks, because Allen is a second year at HBS and they’re peacing out. Sad day. But I’m super thankful we got to make some good memories with them this year!

Guys, I’m about to post a lot of pictures.

The invites:


Here are the birthday boys and their families


Setting everything up got a little crazy… I was quickly reminded of Cooper’s First Birthday Party, when I had my family in town, along with my sweet in-laws, and a few friends who all help set up. Needless to say, Jenny and I were maybe running around towards the end trying to make sure we had time to get home and change out of our rained-on homeless-looking attire. It all came together :)




We had the party in McCullough Hall – a dorm lounge on campus. I guess when you have a party at HBS, there’s bound to be a portrait of someone above the fireplace – Mr. McCullough, everyone.



After about cupcake number 5 (give or take 10), it was a little tricky to get a family pic :)


Sarah was “the fun aunt” and pushed Coop all around the room. Not an easy task, my friends. And the bottom left Cooper and Elliott have a funny little friendship :) Sharing is hard, guys!!


Here were a few signs indicating the party was over. And Cooper was officially over-served.


A big thanks to all of our sweet friends who came and celebrated with us!! We loved making memories with all of you.
