Nathan Turns 3
Three years....Seems like just yesterday we were welcoming this little one into the world. We all knew it was going to be something amazing. So many firsts....Our daughter becoming a mom for the first time, me becoming a Gigi, our son Chris, becoming an uncle, my mom becoming a Great Grandmother, my sister becoming a great aunt. We knew it was going to be special.
But no one could have ever prepared any of us for how this little boy would change our lives, bring our families closer together, and once again, show us how much love we have to give and to receive.
Today we celebrated Nathan's 3rd birthday.
Just as I did when my two kids were small, Katherine spent weeks creating things to pull off Nathan's desire for "A Toy Story Birthday". It's all he's talked about for months.
"I want a toy story birthday party and a Woody cake". So Katherine, set out to make his dream come true and worked on bringing to life, a Toy Story Theme for Nathan's big day.
Buzz, Woody, T-Rex, and all the characters from Toy Story were worked into the theme in countless ways. Katherine made an Etch-A-Sketch Photo Booth out of cardboard for the parents and a Buzz Light year Photo booth made out of cardboard for the kids.
A Toy Story Tattoo station, Toy Story themed food, home made banners, signs, Toy Story Balloons, Toy Story painted pumpkins, Toy Story handmade and painted decorative containers, and party decorations adored the clubhouse in our subdivision for a Toy Story party like no other.
And the cake, was simply adorable and perfectly perfect, thanks to Cakes By Amy Inskeep!
Thanks to the countless friends and relatives who came to celebrate Nathan. You all hold such a special place in his heart. Thanks for loving him and giving him the best birthday ever!
Dedicated to Uncle Chris who will be leaving in 8 weeks to travel the world solo for a year...
