We had our middle nugget's 3rd birthday party this past weekend and I am just now starting to recover. And by recover I mean finally almost done eating the cupcakes that were leftover.
We decided that having a 6 month old at home this year and the craziness that has been our lives lately we would have her party somewhere other than our house. Seven birthday parties at our house and we finally decided to venture out, haha!
That's supposed to be a lion. Not a bear on fire.
This lady was amazing. If you are in or around Howard County I highly suggest Paige at Green Valley Marketplace!
Harper wanted a Lion King birthday (not Lion Guard, Lion King) and I was super excited being that Lion King was my favorite as a child. We just came across pictures of me with my Lion King bed set and I showed it to Harper who didn't think it was as cool as I did.
We invited all her best friends and girlfriend had a blast. I don't think I was quite prepared for how excited a three year old would get and understand as we heard all day long... "Is it time for my party yet?!" "I can't wait to see all my friends!"
I told Anthony her face will forever be engrained in my mind because she just smiled the entire time. It was ridiculously adorable.
Aunt Tessa and Hazel! And Hazel's future bff, Madelyn is in that belly!
We decided to do it at Quinn's old stomping grounds, My Gym and I am so glad we did. The kids love this place so much and I honestly miss sending them there like crazy.
They did a great job entertaining the kids for a little bit and then letting them run wild. Then it was pizza, cupcakes and we were out of there! It was a dream. I may never throw another house party again.
I MEAN REALLY.
"Oh nooo. My Kohl's top" I love you so much, Jammer.
Lanie is kind of like a Disney princess. All the kids adore her.
Words can't express how much I love this man. I am in all seriousness the luckiest woman alive.
A 5 minute nap was all she needed!
I mean, LOOK AT HIS FACE. Sorry I'm kind of obsessed with him.
They paraded Harper around for a birthday parade and I just about melted. Her tiny little face and the fact that she somehow is turning three and all the emotions just.... BOOM. I don't like this one getting older. She has always been "the baby" since Quinn was born and I am having a really hard time with my middle being so close to not being a baby anymore.
Sidenote: we recently pulled out the highchair for Hazel and Harper asked me "Mommy, when I'm a baby can I sit in the highchair too?"
And then I cried. Because life.
I seriously cannot handle the cupcake cake. I was so sad to tear into it!
Thank the good Lord for Lita!
Hope you had the best birthday party ever little girl. Mommy and Daddy love you every little piece of you, you feisty little thing.
And of course we had to be that family with matching Hakuna Matata shirts. And I don't even care how cheesy we look.
