Carson's 2nd Birthday...Over the Rainbow: The Inspiration

Thursday, May 14, 2015

If you've met my second child, you'll soon discover she's not into Disney princesses for the most part [except for Anna] and cartoons aren't really her thing quite yet [though Mickey will suffice at times], HOWEVER, if you ask her what her favorite movie is, she will instantly say "Waz"...and if you aren't bilingual and don't speak her second language, what she is really saying is "The Wizard of Oz". Scary favorite for a little one? I agree. I believe this fascination came from her Mimi as it's her favorite movie as well...so it's one thing they absolutely agree on! And no, we don't sing traditional nursery rhymes at bedtime for my little one, only "We're Off to See the Wizard" and "Over the Rainbow" suit her fancy. 

I'm not sure how it happened, but she is enamored with all things Oz and so for her second birthday party, we are planning an Over the Rainbow soiree for our nugget Carson. I am SO excited and things are well underway for our fun yellow brick road, munchkin goodies, and decorating the casa in bright hues for her summertime birthday. 
Get excited because you know this party-loving mama is kicking it into high gear for this extravaganza!! Lions and tigers and bears... OH MY! Invites are out so let the fun begin.
