House & Birthday Partying

Saturday was a big day. We celebrated Wade’s birthday at Monkey Joe’s and played all our little hearts out. There may have even been a moment or two where Chris decided to RACE two of the other dads on the inflatable obstacle course. As they came over the final hill/slide, it was more of of…

Cupcake Toppers. They have the amazing, under-appreciated ability to take an ordinary looking dessert to the next level. There are a million and one ways to fit your toppers to your theme and with a cricut or other cutting machine you can cut whatever shape you want, or do customized circle toppers and punch out…

Star Birthday Party Favors! {Wish Upon a Starry Straw}

Our eldest offspring decreed that her birthday party theme be none other than all things STARS, and I quickly found that google loved to show me all things star WARS or ROCK star, but scarcely a simple STAR PARTY could be found.  And by that, I mean, free, cheap ideas or printables!  :) I did…

Poster Board Star Art!

Lemme tell you there is not all that much inspiration out there {that I could find} for a “Star” birthday party.  There were “Rock Star” parties and “Star Wars” parties galore clogging up my search results, but very few simple STAR parties going on. I’m giving you THREE sweet tutorials from all our party goodness……

Our Star Par-tay!

We have left the land of princess parties behind, wah!  Our great big, too-grown-up girl decided that she wanted to have a Star Party… with the colors Blue, Green, & Gold! Uh, not exactly what I would have guessed by any means, but it’s her party and she can pick the theme {or cry} if…

It was pretty easy to make, and I am finally coming back a month after the fact to give you the full tutorial! I found great Birthday Bunting inspiration and told you I…

Finally Four. A Pinterest Par-tay.

Wade has been obsessively yearning to be four, for what seems like ages.  He has entertained us all by answering the question of “How old are you?” with a somber and woeful… “STILL three!” He was SO very impatient to finally reach this illustrious milestone.  Our theme this year for his big par-tay, was the…

Party like you’re Turning ONE!!!

Today our Davis Man is the B-I-G ONE!!!!  One year ago today he was just making his way into the world to meet this crazy family he is stuck with.  :) For fun… here were my Facebook updates one year ago today… 7:50ish am… Heading to hospital! 10:15 am… still waiting on iv and pitocin……

Birthday Favor Tags!

It’s not like it’s hard or anything, I know. BUT… these tips would’ve helped me making the tags for Haylee’s party favor bags, so I thought I would pass on the learning curve.  :) I started off by downloading a free circle label template for Word and Printshop.  I ended up using Printshop but you…

Happy Birthday Haylee!

Our cartwheel obsessed firstborn celebrated her BIG eight years on the planet doing one of her very most favorite things… Gymnastics. The girl l.o.v.e.s anything and everything gymnastics related.  :) Our experience this year wasn’t quite the fabulous par-tay that we had last year, but I tried to keep remembering that the Birthday Girl was…
