Happy Birthday Hannah & Claire

Our granddaughter's birthdays and party was last weekend.  I was waiting for my daughter
Life In The Hass House  to post her piece first. Before I post my pictures though, I want to wish a big Happy Birthday to Claire, whose birthday is today!  She is TWO. 
And last Sunday on the day of their party....Hannah turned FOUR!!!
It sure doesn't seem possible!  These two little darlings had THE BEST birthday party ever!!!  Their Mommy and Daddy worked so hard to give them a terrific birthday party.  The bounce house was, I think, their very favorite!! 
Gennifer and Jake did an outstanding job with the party planning and decorating and hosting.  I had the pleasure of helping out a little too.  I made the tissue puffs for them to hang for "atmosphere" and those were a lot of fun to do.  They were in their favorite colors, pink, purple and blue.
I went over the night before, and we had pizza and set up the kitchen and did some decorating.  When I arrived the morning of the party, everything looked BeaUtiFuL!! And the girls were SO excited!!

The food was delicious!

The backyard was just as pretty and festive!
The girls are always dressed in darling clothes, and their hair fixed so cute with matching hair accessories.  I LoVeD that on this day, even though they were at their beautiful best when the party began, they had both lost their hair bows, and barrettes, and were just having a wonderful time, hair a flying, and their little faces showing evidence of sweet treats, and the party snacks that were special to this day, on them. 
I adore this picture of Hannah thanking her Great-Great Grandma...our Nana, for her gift!
And this one Claire...playing the guitar that Uncle "Goo" (Drew) got them.
This is the double seat wagon that Geeps and Gamma got for them.  I think Claire was napping when this was taken.  Here is Geeps getting Hannah and Noah buckled in.
It was a great party!   Happiest of Happy Birthdays to our Hannah and Claire!  We hope you always reach for the "Stars", or balloons, whichever the case may be.
Dance (or Bounce) like nobody's watching!
We love you like CRaZy!!!  Happy Birthday to Hannah & Claire!

Sure looks like a fun day for two darling little sweeties...I especially love those tissue puffs. Can't wait for an excuse to make them, haha...The look on Miss Hannah's face is just priceless.

Gorgeous party and I was so sad to miss it. Looks like a lot of fun, food and of course friends and family...I need a lesson on those poofs, they are darling. Gotta run but I hope to talk to you soon.

You got some neat pics Mom. That one of reaching for the stars or "balloons" is neat! love it.
Thanks again for all your help!! The tissue poofs are still being enjoyed. Did you see the ones we hung in Hannah's room? She loves them! I might hang the three downstairs still in Clairey's room.

Love you! Thanks for coming over tonight. It was fun.

Clara said...

Kris, I have to say it again...you have a beautiful family. Hannah with Great-Great Grandma and Claire with the guitar. Wonderful. And, your daughter keeps a lovely household!

Hi Kris,
What a fun party and you can see the love that went into it. Your grandchildren are adorable. I love the "Happy Birthday" sign as you enter and the pictures on the table with the cupcakes...it really adds that personal touch to the party!

I need to get over here more often. I'm going to add you on my sidebar, so I don't keep missing your posts.

Thanks for sharing!
((HUGS)) & LOVE,
Liz

Hi Kris, I always see you post on Pammy Sue's blog and then I was visiting Clara and saw that you posted "rainy in So Cal" and so went to visit and found you live in Corona. I have a brother that's lived there with his family since about 1980. You have a beautiful family and the party pics are so pretty. I'll be back to say hello again! I think tomorrow is going to be a pretty day. I love it after it rains here, don't you? Hugs!
