Happy 1st Birthday Jett!!!

I am a month or so behind. Better late then never!

Happy FIRST Birthday to our awesome son, Jett Michael!!!!! His birthday fell on a Thursday this year and we were excited to have his Halmunee (my mom) & Granpapa (my stepdad) to come vistit for Jett's birthday and birthday party. I decided to keep it low key on his actual birthday because I knew in a couple of days we will have tons more going on at the party.

We knew Jett loves balloons so I stopped on my way home and picked up a helium balloon. Jett was amazed by it and couldn't stop playing with it.

 I made Jett's favorite meal, Spaghetti & Meatballs (I posted this recipe January). I baked his cake the night before and left it out to ice the next day. Of course our 3 furbabies wanted to join in the festivities of Jett's birthday and decided to test out the cake and ended up eating it all themselves. So Daddy made a strawberry cake with cream cheese icing for Jett.

We brought the cake over with a candle and sang Happy Birthday. Jett didn't understand why everyone was singing and why mommy was bringing over this big plate with fire on it.

 
 We blew out the candles together and cut a couple of slices for the adults. And it was GAME ON. 1st piece of cake for Jett!


He had a great time and so did we watching him dive into his birthday cake. He was a mess, but it was worth it!! Can't believe he is a year already. It just felt like yesterday we were holding our 7lb 9oz little newborn. We love you our sweet son.

2013 Christmas Card

We've been sending out Christmas cards as a couple for a while now. Each year we try to be creative with them (past Christmas cards: 2009, 2010). Each year it gets harder and harder. We either add another dog or a kid. It's hard to get the dogs wrangled up and to look at the camera. It's even harder with kids! This year I tried to take some pictures of some inspiration I saw on pinterest. Here are some photos I took.






The card that I got through Shutterfly.com. Love them!


This year we've been extremely blessed with our new home, the birth of our second son, and a new great job. More importantly we are blessed to have each other. Merry Christmas everyone!! God Bless!

2013 Mother's Day....DIY photo gift

2013 Mother's Day was extra special this year with what my guys did for me. While I wasn't home Mike got out our camera, tripod, remote for the camera and started to take some beautiful DIY shots. His inspiration was "Jett's Day." From getting ready, napping, & going out. It just captured so many great moments of our little guy.

I love the sentimental gifts that kids make their parents. It is worth millions to me. So when I received my mother's day gift from my guys I heart just fluttered with excitement.


Here are the pics from the mini DIY session .....







Mike wanted to put all these great photos in a frame. He had J paint the matte so it was more personable. 


The end result a DIY photo session with a toddler painted matte for Mother's Day. Something I will have and to cherish forever.




Jett's Vintage Train 3rd Birthday Party!

I was really excited about planning Jett's party because we would throw the party at our new home. So many possibilities!! I always try to brainstorm ideas months prior to the party so I can slowly come up with stuff and create them. I started to think of things that Jett was really into at this part of his life.

He loves planes, but we did that for his 1st birthday. He loves tractor, we did that for his 2nd party. Now at almost 3 he loved trains and Superman! So I asked Jett in November, "Jett do you want a choo-choo train party or Superman?" and Jett yells, "CHOO CHOO TRAIN!!" PERFECT!!


I was now thinking of things to do and how to decorate for this party. Of course everything has to start with the invitation. I created the invitation myself. I went with a old style boarding pass. 

You can now purchase this invitation, but personalized  at my Etsy store!
I printed these in cardstock and then stuffed them in kraft paper envelope that I purchased at Hobby Lobby …
