As I had mentioned before, Beckett has been talking NONSTOP about his Mickey Mouse Birthday Party. He talked about it with everyone. Anytime a stranger would say hello, he would promptly begin discussing his party plans. I'm pretty sure it was all he thought about for at least a month.
It all started to make me nervous, because I couldn't imagine what he was actually dreaming up for his little party. I just wanted it to be as special of a day as could be.
He was very clear that he wanted a cookie cake, so Nestle Toll House came through on that one. He also has a serious love of popcorn, so that made a perfect goodie treat for his guests. We did a little decorating in the 10 minutes before the party started….
As soon as the party started he got right down to business….the foam pit was a hit with all. Dada I think enjoyed it as much as the kids.
Once the guests arrived everyone sat in a circle to introduce themselves and show their favorite trick. As you can see, B has a great trick - he can put his head between his legs and be upside down!
Afterwards there was a lot more playing and running around.
Group Silly Picture….
Finally it was time for cake! B's face was glowing when everyone sang Happy Birthday. He knew exactly what to do - make a big wish, blow out the candles, and devour the cookie!
Back home Beckett had a few friends over to play and enjoy pizza. He got to open presents, which kind of put me over the edge since I couldn't keep up with who gave him what. ha!
Mission Accomplished, though. Beckett had a wonderful birthday and he is still talking about it. We are so proud and thankful for our big THREE year old!
