Lovie's birthday is September 12 and Kensington's is September 15...my family prides itself on having individual parties for everyone (we really just want more reasons to eat cake) but since this year, we were flying home from Denmark on September 12...and jet lagged on September 15...somehow, Lovie and Kensington's birthdays got all tangled.
Lovie's mama (my grandmother) and Kensington's mama (me!) decided to throw a tangled up birthday party for the birthday girls. My sweet grandmother hosted at her house.

The invitations and decorations were custom created by Andrea at Slightly Askew Designs...she does AMAZING stuff people (including Christmas cards and blog design), so contact her for help with your next festive event.
Purple and pink popcorn were our party favors
And instead of party hats, we wore crowns.
Kensington and Lovie came together to their party. Here they are checking out the decor.
Me and Andrew
The birthday girl eating her dinner (she opted for pb&j...the rest of us ate yummy homemade enchiladas!).
My dad and his sister Lu
Our little king
I love this picture because it's indicative of my parents...always full of energy, chasing and playing with their grandkids.
Lovie bought horse-obsessed Kensington one to ride around on.
Smith loved it too!
Then we opened tons of presents!
Smith fed Papa (Papa Jay's dad) popcorn during present opening time. So sweet together.
First, we sang Happy Birthday to my mom (sorry mom...own your age...you look fantastic!)
Kensington singing loudly to Lovie...my dad looks like he's praying back there...
Then we sang Happy Birthday to Kensington!
Then we ate cake. Lots of cake!
This was such a special birthday. No two women will affect my life more than my mom and daughter. I am so blessed to have both of them and so blessed to have been able to share in their special day. Love you girls!
