We went with a Minnie Mouse theme this year (as much of a theme as I go with at least). Maggie loves the Playhouse Mickey show and “Toodles.” I thought I would go with Minnie especially since she is popular here in Peru. We had the team, the interns and the Padrinos (Alfredo and Judith) over for totellini and spinach ravioli (a favorite meal of Maggie’s), bread and homemade pesto. I made red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting for dessert (I still need to get your recipe Deborah!).
The little girls looked so cute in the little Minnie ears I found for them. Maggie enjoyed the party and got into the present opening for sure. For her second birthday she got a Clubhouse Mickey DVD, a set of Clubhouse Disney characters with cars, a Minnie purse with Minnie headband, a little Baby Bop doll, some books, and some new warm giraffe pj’s. Today we are going to spend her birthday money on a special place at one of the malls called “City Toys.” I will post pics of that in another post.
Thanks to April, our live-in intern, for taking many of these pictures for me. I love having the memories in pictures…

I had to get a photo of the McKinzie 3. Love those ears!
One always saves money with homemade decorations. 🙂
After hanging my art work, Ana wanted in on the action. She decided to make her own “Toodles” poster for her sister.
I always love purchasing some genuine printed napkins from the Peru party store. 😉

I was going to borrow Larissa’s icing decoration supplies and forgot to get them in time. Stickers have become my go-to for decorating.
Judith helped Maggie with the present opening.
“Cop-tates!!!” This 2-year-old loves her some cupcakes.
And look who woke up for the end of the party. 🙂
