Hudson’s Star Wars 3rd Birthday

9 Apr

Hudson LOVES Star Wars so it was no surprise this is what he wanted for his third birthday. We were going to do it at the Science Center but we opted for a low key party at the house instead.

Hamburger, hot dogs, and BBQ food were on the menu

It ended up being a hot day so it turned into a pool party for the kiddos

Darth Vader Cake from Publix

The birthday boy!

I think he opted for the mean face because of Darth Vader, not really sure

Blue icing fail

Hudson loved all of his presents!

His very own hair gel and lotion so he can stop stealing mine

It was a low key, simple party with his family and closest friends and that is all he really wanted. Happy Birthday bud! We love you!


Oh Two-dles: Hudson’s 2nd Birthday

6 Apr

We went easy this year. I didn’t really have the time to go all out like I usually do but it was nice just to take it easy and enjoy the party. Hudson loves Mickey so the Oh Two-dles theme was perfect.

His cake was from Publix because they make awesome cakes.

It started off raining but cleared up later in the party. Some of the kids made their way outside but some opted for the playroom upstairs.

Hudson was happy to play in his park

Sweet Harper and Reese cruising in the backyard 🙂

Hudson refused to nap that day (and had woken up 4 times the night before) so he passed out in the swing.

Meanwhile, Kyler helped herself to dipping carrots in the frosting. Gross

We opened gifts and Hudson had a great time with all his new trucks and cars!

I didn’t take as many photos as I should have but it’s okay. We had a nice day with family and friends and Hudson had so much fun!

Weekend Update with The Jenkinsons

24 Jan

It was the weekend of birthday celebrations and it isn’t even Kyler’s birthday yet.

On Saturday, we celebrated her birthday at O2B Kids with friends. It was a superhero/ Batgirl theme and she was excited.

Everyone doing their best superhero pose

The first activity was coloring your own mask and cape

Baby bro had to get into the mix

The next stop, was a dance party… or just running around a room, playing music and playing instruments

All the superheroes ❤

Time for cake

It was a fun birthday party and she loved celebrating it with her friends.

After the party, we kept it going at the Gilbertson’s house.

It was chilly here in Florida and I as sleepy from the party so problem solved

The moon was BIG and BRIGHT on our walk home… well Kyler ran because she was cold

Ammo, my 1st baby ❤

Today, we were ready to have ANOTHER birthday party at Grandma and Poppa’s house

It was a beautiful, sunny but chilly day

Working hard

Gotta love a Publix cake

My birthday princess

She looks so grown up here

She had the best time celebrating with her family and friends this weekend. I can’t believe our Bug will turn 4 on Tuesday. Time is sure flying by 😦

Superheroes Unite! // Hudson’s 1st Birthday!

30 Mar

We threw Hudson a Superhero themed party for his big day. It was such a cute party to put together. Unlike previous years with Kyler, I had zero time to really put anything together ahead of time. I created the invitation 2 months ahead of time and then really didn’t think much of the party until a week out. Oops.

I printed the invitations out via and they turned out great! If you need an online printer, they are great!

Let’s Party! – Girly Dinosaurs

23 Feb

For my daughter’s 3rd birthday, she wanted dinosaurs and alligators. Simple enough, right? When it came time to designing her invitation, I had no clue what I wanted other than cute, girly dinosaurs. I found a pack on Etsy that I loved and got to work. Kyler loved the colors and the fact that the dinosaurs had bows on 🙂 Win win!

Let’s Party! – Snow White

16 Feb

A friend from work asked me to whip up a quick Snow White invitation for her daughter’s 3rd birthday. Of course, I said yes and got to work. I just love these little hand drawn people and you can find them all over Etsy. What is a better than a princess party for your little princess? I just love it!

Let’s Party! – Holiday Picnic

7 Jan

The holidays may be over but I wanted to make sure I posted this before it was too late. This past December, I created an invitation for my hubby and Dad’s company. We threw a Family Holiday Picnic at the park so I naturally used the gingham pattern to start with. The invite is casual and worked perfectly for a holiday BBQ at the park!

Let’s Party! – Rainbow Colors

Who doesn’t love bright colors?? I know I am partial to lots of color (see my kid’s playroom) so helping out for a rainbow color themed birthday party was right up my alley!

Let’s Party! – Baseball

27 Oct

Here is a baseball invitation I whipped up last month. The little guy I made this for had a former professional baseball player  for a daddy so it was only fitting that it was the theme!
