"a birthday luau"

for our spunky little "two" year old...

Ivy was not really interested in her party {she took a late nap, due to brother's football game} 
until it was time to open presents... which was at the last 30 minutes of her party. haha

Livi is in most of my pictures because she is the only one in my family who will smile for the camera.  I have officially overdosed my family with taking Pictures ;)

We had such a fun time celebrating her birthday "luau style"
I made yummy Macaroni Salad, Kaluha pork, sticky rice, pineapple/fruit skewers 
and polynesian chicken!

we played "hot coconut" did "hoola hoop contests" and of course the "Limbo." 
One of my niece's friends is from Samoa and she came and taught the kids how to "hula dance" it was soooo darling!  I loved watching the kids learn a little hula routine!

everything was great once Ivy ate her cupcakes and opened presents.  She became our little spunky child once her clothes came off!  Hey it's her birthday she can do whatever she wants, right?!

we love that girl to pieces, even when she is naughty... she pulls at our 'heart strings'
Happy birthday love...

  I made these darling "lei's" for the kids to take home, My friend Jenn who lives in hawaii made one for Ivy for her birthday and sent me all the netting to make the "party favors" 
 they were so darling!

there she is, my happy baby girl playing with all her presents!

You are a great party mom. You should go into party planning. Could you do Derek's 50th? I am glad Ivy had a great day. We love that little cutie.
