Pierce Airlines!

Introducing Captain Pierce.... of Pierce Airlines. For Pierce's 2nd birthday we had a Airplane Party.... bc he is in love with planes (go figure). With my mom's help (ViVi) we put together an airplane themed party for friends and family. We sent everyone an invitation in the shape of an airplane for this past Saturday the 31st. of January (Pierce's bday is the 4th....we sure do know how to spread it out). I got this costume on-line... isn't he cute... and these porcelain airplane treasure boxes that he is holding were the take away thank you gifts... inside each is a little procelain pilot.
The day before the party, Blake took Pierce to Dallas so Grandad, ViVi and I could get everything ready and it could be a surprise.... this is what he saw when he first arrived to the house for his party.... a runway with flying planes.

The Arrival sign... with our little pilot showing the way for all of our guest.

The check in table... where you get your name tag and bag of pretzels... just like the airlines.

Baggage Claim...

Since it was so pretty outside we wanted people to sit outside... so here is Gate 2... our waiting area... before you enter Gate 2 everyone was instructed to grab their lunch (which was in a Japan Airlines barf bag (thanks to Grandma and Grandpa for picking these up when they visited Singapore)... yes we ate our lunches out of a barf bag. Inside was a sandwich, chips and fruit.
As people would leave the party... they would see the Departure sign... I made all of these signs with my Cricut.... I love my Cricut.

On all the TV's inside and out there was a video playing that I made via Shutterfly with all the highlights from 2008 (Pierce's 2nd year of life). Here is a picture of the cake (no I did not make it and there was a little drama with the cake when it first arrived which I will write about later)...and more pictures of those cute little treasure boxes.

Thanks to ViVi and her friend Tammy they spent 6 hours in the kitchen making these cute little airplane cookies... thank you so much for all your hard work... not only were they cute they were GOOOOOOD.

More Video outside and here are some of the wooden planes that we had outside for the kids to have.

Thank you to ViVi, Grandad, Tammy, Grandma and Grandpa and Blake for all of your help in making this party so special with all the decorations and special touches... I could not have done it without you.
