Jackson is 3!

Hey guys! I hope you all had a fabulous holiday weekend, we had family in town for Jackson's 3rd Birthday. I cannot believe it has been 3 years! Crazy!! I wanted to share with you some of the party decor and some pictures of him. He had a dinosaur themed party, he cannot say dinosaur he says "nasus" lol! 

I made his cake, the bottom layer was red velvet with cream cheese frosting and top layer was a white cake with butter cream frosting. All of which was covered in marshmallow fondant. I am definitely no pro at making cakes, but I think it turned out pretty cute! I traced the dinosaur from his birthday banner that I made with my cricut to put on the top of the cake. I am so glad I spent the time rolling all of those little balls it was Jackson's favorite part!

I cut everything out on my cricut and strung it together. I found the dinosaur image online and with my sure cuts alot software I was able to cut it out. If you have a cricut and don't have the sure cuts alot software you must get it! It is awesome!! 

I got the letters at Hobby Lobby and painted them to match the theme colors, hot glued them on to skewers and then stuck them into foam which I hot glued to the bottom of the bucket and then just put some shredded paper around to cover that up. I think they made really cute and cheap centerpieces! The letters were 6 dollars for both centerpieces and I had everything else on hand. I used scrapbook paper as placemats.

We got Jackson a fish for his Birthday, every time we go in to the pet store he wants to look at the fish and always gets mad when we have to leave. He named him Raymond haha!

Sweet little cheese face right before we lit the candle. This is how he smiles when we ask him to haha.

This picture is my favorite!! I timed it perfectly!

And lastly here is a picture of Jackson and I right after he was born.

I could not wait any longer, so I pulled out the Fall decor bins today and have finished the mantle, so I will post that right after this. Stay tuned!! :)
