Jett's 4th Super Hero Birthday Party!

This post is well overdue. I say that just about every post now.  Jett's Birthday party was in February!! Life has been really crazy and I haven't been able to blog like I have wanted too. I really want to make it a weekly thing, but being a mom of little boys, wife, having a full time job and commuting to work daily... I am WOOORN out by the time I get home. I just want to get in my PJs and call it a night.

Any who... For months Jett (since the day after this 3rd birthday) had been talking about wanting a SUPER HERO birthday party. Since Jett loved bounce houses so much. We I decided to have it a local indoor bounce venue, which had tons of bouncies for the kids to get on. Of course the planner in me wanted some details along with it.

I was really excited about the planning of Jett's 4th Birthday Party because #1 we didn't have the party at our house and #2 there is so much you can do with a  Super Hero party. I really thought not having the party at our house would cause less stress with the clean up before and after and worrying about to have great entertainment for the kids. I was wrong... well this would probably only apply to me. Only because I am a control freak when it comes the party planning and I want to know everything that is going on at all times and have control of the situation. In the grand scheme of things this was good. I had to tone down my ideas some cause I could only do so much in the time frame the venue (2 hours), which means less money!

I really enjoyed making Jett's birthday invitations. From all the invitations I have made this is by far my favorite. 

I found this amazing seller on Etsy. Who created this piece of artwork. I created it into a vinyl banner to have as the main decor.

Here are the photos from the party. The vendors I used are at the bottom of the page.

 My AMAZING mother in law made the capes and masks for us. We gave them out as favors to all the kids. Even the babies sidekicks!

Of course I had the amazing Sweet D. Lights do all our baked goods (ex: cake, cupcakes, cookies, cake pops). She is so awesome! Already booked her for Stone's birthday!

Cupcake toppers created by yours truly. 

The Super Hero was a cookie itself! Jett really enjoyed it.

I used raspberries and strawberries for the red fruit, blueberries for the blue and the star in the center was a cookie cutter filled with mini marshmallows.  

As another party favor "spider spray" aka silly string. I created the wrapping around it. They were a BIG HIT! And I got them at the dollar store! 

The superheros!!

He was so excited that everyone was singing to him. He didn't know what to do with himself, but SMILE well more like GRIN!

On Jett's actual 4th birthday! Excuse my cheese face. I was trying to get everyone to say cheese!
 With our sweet 4 year old, Superman Jett (poor Stone feeling left out.)!

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 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. 

This invitation is no longer available at my etsy shop
However, a new & improved one I made from my youngest son's birthday (below) is available to personalized here at my…
