jia rose's winter princess tea party

I've always felt more like a mom of boys.
I mean, I love my lipgloss and highlights
but I despise drama, process emotion more like a dude and have pretty thick skin.
But I have to admit, this having a girl thing is pretty dang fun.
Jia asked for a "frozen" party (of course) and I am pretty frozen'ed out
with that being the theme of our daddy daughter dance last year
and with it being E. VERY. WHERE.
So I said this was her "frozen" party but we went more of the "winter princess" route. :)
Manipulative? Maybe.
Grandma did princess face painting (I'm so mad I didn't get a photo!) 
and the girls were so sweet and patient waiting for their turn.
I sent the boys to Cabela's with daddy and we had the quietest, most lovely party ever.
I think I could get used to this…

my baby is one.

For Jagger's first birthday, I wanted to celebrate all things "baby"
in hopes of prolonging and preserving his littleness for just a bit longer.
His invitations said "our last one is turning one".
I realize those could be "famous last words" but I assure you,
Most of the time I am at peace with that, other times I wonder where the time went
and how I could already be here…throwing my last first birthday party. Tear.

It was a great day and I so appreciate everyone who came out to celebrate our little man!

Jagger's birth story (that was somehow a year ago)

jett's transformer birthday party

Once again, one of my boys had to challenge me with their chosen birthday theme.
I am loving all things woodland, boho and rustic and this theme is such a sharp contrast.
But I love being pushed and challenged and ended up really digging this transformer theme.

This was hard to capture in photos but the drinks actually glowed!
Vitamin b + a black light for the win.

I had to capture this photo of Jett eating his cake considering for the past 12 MONTHS (literally)
he has reminded me over and over again that he didn't get a piece of his birthday cake last year
(he chose a cupcake instead) so I had to make sure to document it this year. :)

After treats we had a Just Dance glow party, RAVE if you will, and it was so. much. fun.

Happy Birthday Jetty!!
