A Few Party Pics

John David's birthday was this past Sunday, but we celebrated as a family on Saturday afternoon.  Grandparents, aunts, uncles & cousins came to our home in honor of our 2 year old little man!  

John David LOVES music, specifically guitars, so we thought it fitting to celebrate with a guitar cake, which he enjoyed talking about for probably a month before his party. David grilled out for us and we began the party with some outside activities.  We had a great time of food and fellowship and were so thrilled to celebrate 2 years of John David Kizziah, Junior!

My cousin Dabney helped me pull this off.  Thanks, Dabs!

Yummy cupcakes

....Yes we do! We love John David! How about you?!?!

Enjoying some long-awaited "guitar cake"! 

John David was thrilled to receive a big Nemo from Uncle Kameron and Olivia;
since going to Disney World, this has been a favorite of his.

David and I had a great time enjoying our son!

Pap and JoJo (David's dad and mom) gave John David a 
REAL ukulele.  Of course, John David calls it a guitar, but 
real guitars don't come that small.  The ukulele was a perfect fit!
Thanks, JoJo and Pap!

After party, after bath, after bedtime snack, and enjoying being TWO!
Thanks to My T & Big Daddy, John David was enjoying some new 
"Bruce the Shark" shades!  What a cool dude!

Looks like you all had a blast. Katie, you are looking great! I love the cake. Looks amazing! Wiley really loves the TV show The Imagination Movers so that's the theme we will go with for his 3 year party. I had thought about doing a guitar cake so I'll definitely be getting some pointers from you!
