My attempt at pottery barn plaques **FINISHED**

I actually finished these weeks ago, but I haven't had time to post the pics yet. These did take some time to make but I LOVE the finished product! Well worth the time and effort and I actually like my version better because the only ones PB offered were for girls.

Rees' 3rd Birthday Party ~ The Family Party

I just can't let the actual day of Rees' birthday pass without having him a little party at our home. I only invite his grandparents and his aunts so it's a small event, but nonetheless it still needs to be cute! He is currently obsessed with Go Diego Go as Rees says "He's my best friend mommy". As much as I do not like character parties I gave in to this one. He just begged to have a Diego party so who was I to argue? After shopping at Birthday Express and grabbing up all the plates, table clothes and hats I just had to add a few personal touches. I made the birthday banner on my Cricut (or as mommy says "her best friend") then I made the cute pom pom balls that I hung on the fan and in the entry way. All and all it was fun and Rees couldn't have been happier!

My Birthday Boy

Welp, it happened. As much as I dreaded it and prayed that the day would not come ... it did! I have a really hard time with my one and only child growing older. I want to keep him tiny FOREVER. I realize that it's not possible, but I just can't give up on it :) I think that's one of the reasons I like to throw huge birthday bashes for him, to keep my mind off of the aging process. So this year the theme was Cowboy; did you really expect anything less? My little man is so obsessed with cowboys that there really was no other option. So I started a month ago gathering the cutest collection of western goodies I could find. I am really happy with the result. This year we had around 25 kiddos! Yep you heard it right 25!!! But, we had several games, great food and pony rides! It went of without a hitch!

Here is Rees making his grand entrance, how else does a cowboy get to his party other than by horse?

Awww look how happy he is!
