Meeska Mouska Mickey Mouse Party

Yesterday we celebrated the baby’s third birthday Mickey Mouse style with his small group of three year old play date friends (and one big brother!)

Inspired by Pinterest, we had so much fun making the invitations for the affair.

Cookie was SO excited for his friends to arrive!!  We spent half of the morning on the front stoop waiting.

We partied down in the basement so there would be plenty of room for dining and playing!  All of the decor outside of the large Mickey balloons and red balloons was repurposed from something else…mostly from our Disney trip and Fourth of July party.  I took everything off of the buffet shelves and redecorated them to go with the party theme.

The littles dined on Mickey Mouse chicken nuggets, Mickey Mouse mac n cheese, fruit skewers and Mickey Mouse rice krispie treats.  I cut circles out of black cardstock and taped them on the backs of black paper plates to turn regular black paper plates into something much more special.

We watched a Mickey Mouse DVD, colored in books made just for the occasion and played our hearts out.
Personalized coloring book available in my etsy shop!

It was finally time to sing “Happy Birthday” and blow out three candles on the Mickey cake.  Littles celebrated with oreo cupcakes and the Mommy’s dined on the delish bakery cake.

Each party goer left with a bag of goodies, including a coloring book, stickers, lollipops and iced cookies.

It was a perfect, laid back party for a sweet group of three year olds!

Happy birthday, baby!

Three Years Old Today

Today we celebrate three magnificent and immeasurably special years of Cookie.  I marvel each and every day at his blonde hair, blue eyes, plump lips, round cheeks and sturdy frame.  He’s strong and strong willed and when he scrawls you can’t help but stop in your tracks.  The baby is smart and self sufficient.  He… Read More

School Birthdays

My littles both celebrate their birthdays between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  This is interesting considering my “master plan” called for late spring birthdays…you know, when the weather is warm and before classmates scatter for summer vacations.  Of course, in said “master plan” all three of my children were perfectly coiffed and properly smocked little girls with… Read More
