The Big Boy

So, my little guy turned 3 last weekend! For some reason, I am having a rough time with him growing up! I almost cried when Casey took apart the crib for the very last time (although it's a major pain, so I'm sure Casey was inwardly filled with glee) to make room for his big boy bed.
He looks soooo cute in his new bed, though :)
That awesome dinosaur is one of the things I made him for his birthday! He really loves him, he wouldn't stop hugging him all day and he even pretended to share his breakfast with him, with slurpy noises and everything.
Someone gave me this old pattern a few years ago and every time Kelby would wander into my sewing room, he would dig it out and carry it around for the rest of the day. So, I finally made him one :)

I also made him these peg dolls! This is not my original idea, I found it on Pinterest and it came from this site.  Mr. Incredible was my own addition and he's my fave :) It occurred to me after I made them, I don't know who the yellow guy is. The best guess we've gotten so far is Ironman, but I dunno.
While I was at it, I made our little family, which you can see in my header up there. These were a big hit with all the kids!
Kelby put his own little guy in his shirt pocket and carried him around that way for a few hours, it was too cute.
I think I might try these Star Wars ones for Christmas!

We had a pretty low-key birthday, which was nice. We didn't have a big party, but we did take the kids to a little water park that we have here called Pirate's Cove, which was crazy, but super fun :) I didn't take any pictures there, I was too nervous about all that water and my camera!

I made some pirate cupcakes (printed the toppers for free from here).
Grandma and P-Paw were there, my lovely cousin Jordan and my Aunt and Uncle. It was fabulous :)


Happy Birthday, Big Boy!!!

    Those little guys are so cute. And the little painted people are cute too.
