Barrett's DINOSAUR party::Part II

The rest of Barrett's party pictures....
The party was small this year, since many of Barrett's guests were sick.

One of Barrett's littlest friends, Cal, came dressed for the party!!

Packers undies from Megan, Brent, Norah Kate & Cal
They were our good luck charm the day after the party, when the Packers beat the Bears to go to the Super Bowl.
I think he'll be wearing them this on Sunday too!!

After lunch and presents, it was cake time!!

Barrett blew out his candle, then after admiring Daddy's dinosaur one last time, he did this....

He is a funny little man!!
After a few bites from the head, he went for one of Mr. T-Rex's tiny arms.

After the guests left, we did our traditional pose with all the gifts.

Within 10 minutes of getting home....

I think he had a great birthday party!
Thanks to everyone that came. We missed those of you that were sick.
Barrett is one loved little boy!!!

Barrett's DINOSAUR party::Part I

I was NOT on the ball with party planning this year.
It sneaks up on my every year, with Christmas and New Years just before, and I usually design and print the invites before Christmas.
But this year, it really got by me! I knew I wanted to do a dinosaur theme, but I didn't get the invites designed til the last minute.

I cruised the web for ideas, and found WAY too many cute things!
It was overwhelming...and my hubby thinks I'm crazy when I go into party-planning mode.

So, I really kept it all pretty simple. He doesn't think so, but I did!

The dino cake was the most fun!!
My cake lady (the lady that makes all the smash cake for my client's 1yr sessions)
made us a small white cake, so that we could decorate it ourselves.
I love coming up with cake ideas, and Justin always makes my vision a reality! He's so talented!
All I did was bake the cupcakes and place all the rocks.

We used this site {A Baked Creation} as a tutorial.

Some more of the party goodies...

pretzels, chocolate-covered raisins, peanut butter chips & a gummy worm

Thanks to my sister-in-law for helping me cut out all the cupcake toppers and the banner on her Cricut!
Love that thing!!

AND the best part... The Birthday Boy!!!

I need sleep...
more of the party coming later!!
