Toy Story 3 Birthday!!!

Toy Story 3 custom shirt from etsy

We celebrated our Space Ranger's third birthday a few weeks early...just in case Riley decides to come early since the due date is February 6 and Jackson's birthday is February 2! Jackson kept telling Riley, "You stay in there until AFTER my party!" Now he gets mad if I say Riley will come on his birthday. HA! I think in the future we will be celebrating their birthdays together anyways since they are so close! So this was Jackson's last birthday as a single child! 

I started prepping for this party last October by "pinning" on Pinterest -- I LOVE this site and used so many ideas from it! Are you on there yet? It was nice having some free time over winter break to prepare for the celebration as well. How cute are these invitations?! I found this shop on etsy and Marlena was SO nice and really professional. I printed them through Shutterfly since I had a coupon from a previous order. =) Marlena also made us thank  you cards and stickers to coordinate!

I found these adorable magnets on ebay!

 They were part of the favors that went in these bags--can you tell what they are?
Jackson LOVED them and helped me punch out the eyes using a circle punch. 

Vons made our frosted green cupcakes and again, etsy helped out with the toppers...I just had to punch with a 2" scalloped punch and attach the sticks (just cut lollipop sticks in half and tape). 

Celeste is Jackson's very best girlfriend!
 Jackson has been talking about a Toy Story jumpy for six months. We told him that would be his birthday gift and he was in that thing from 10 am until 4 pm! BEST GIFT EVER for him and us! HA HA! He even took a break from opening gifts so he could go back in there. It had a basketball hoop inside and that seemed to really keep him going -- besides the constant bouncing with his friends.

Since I knew I would be approaching my due date, the last thing I wanted to do was prepare lunch! We had Toy Story Tacos from Antonia--yummy! I was craving these things since I booked her in November! She comes with everything you need--including plates, napkins, just pay per person and she does the work! I am obsessed with her salsa and hot carrots! She owns a taco shop but caters on the side. 619-449-2104. 

Auntie Autumn took tons of pictures to capture the day!

drinks! Dad shared his new kegerator with the adult guests.

Time for presents and cake!

Ryan gets Bullseye's cookie!

Sierra made this!!! Pin the parts on Mr. Potato!
Jackson didn't want to play (jumpy was calling) but his friends loved it!

Mr. Potato winners feasted on these--
a spin off from our Reindeer Pops.
stuffing goodie bags for the 24 kids!

Jack really looks up to Connor (4)! He is so cool!
His mommy went to high school with Uncle Orion and Uncle Noah!

No nap on your party day = falling asleep at dinner!

Our Space Ranger is about to turn three and I really can't believe it! He is so grown up and really taking on the role of being a Big Brother seriously. He is finally playing independently for long periods of time, loves going to preschool, and enjoys all of his friends. My favorite thing to do is to listen to him play with his toys and hear him talking for them. It is the cutest thing ever!  How did three years pass by so fast? I am glad I have this blog to refer back to because it has documented my favorite three years of being with Sierra and our son!
