3rd Birthday

Our little man had his 3rd birthday party a week ago.  It was an exciting and awesome day!  Jackson was so excited from the minute we started talking about birthday parties... he got super excited when our guests started arriving Friday night (Grandma Donna and Grandpa Leslie & Uncle Michael and Aunt Jenny).  He woke up on Saturday morning excited for his birthday party.  By 11am when the first guests started arriving he was hyper!  When cousins Aubrey and Elise arrived  the running began!  He was going non-stop from 11am-3pm.  He had such a fun time with his friends and family.  Here are some highlights from the festivities...

Jackson and his friends... I love that you can see the other boys "helping" him blow out the candles.  He was so darn cute while everyone was singing to him!!

 Candy dump truck suckers... made by Mommy using candy melts
 Fabric banner... I cut out pennants and hot glued them to a piece of bias tape, super easy!  The fabric on the table and banner is Michael Miller.  In the background behind the cake you can see Jackson's bowling trophy.
 Dump truck cake (I used a mold and decorated it) and cupcakes... I made the stand using 2 Walmart resin plates and a candle stick... the picks were also made by me... I used my Silhouette to cut them out and design them.
 Birthday Banner over the fireplace, used Silhouette to cut out the letters and pennants.
 Food... we got cheese and meat platters, potato salad, and fruit from Fareway.  I like the Mason jars held together by Caution tape to hold the silverware.

 The best birthday EVER!  I loved how much he LOVED this party!  Jackson has such a blast with everyone and was so gracious and loving... it was by far my favorite birthday ever!!  (I made his shirt, too... used my Silhouette to cut out t-shirt vinyl, Maxwell had done with an orange dump truck on it)
