Scenes from a Birthday Weekend


Our sweet, baby James is officially THREE years old! {i can't hardly believe it} Yesterday, we celebrated his birthday, mermaid and fishermen {aka pirate} style, with his birthday "twin" Ashley and a group of our closest friends and family. 

The party was held, on what felt like our own private island, at our local beach park. The kids crafted their own sun catchers, digged for treasures, played beach games, and danced around waving their handmade mermaid wands and pirate flags. 

It was a fun time had by all! But at the end of the day, after all of the guests have gone home and everything is packed away, and I am cuddling on the couch with my James, and he says to me, in the softest and sweetest voice: "Mom, I had the best birthday. Thank you for my party," I am brought to tears. They are tears of love, heartache, and joy! For I never could have imagined these feelings, nor this love, that I have for my little boy. My three year old boy.

  2. Oh Sam it turned out awesome. We had so hoped to make it. Now I'm even more bummed we missed out on all the spectacular-ness! Love you and be looking in the mail. Sending James his gift!

  3. Aw Sam- what a fantastic looking party! And that story melts my heart! I am loving the 'digging for treasure' idea- That is something my kids would be really into-
    I owe you a big thank you- the delay is that I wanted to include photos but I need to go buy the pillow first!! We got your package and your sweet note and I could not be more thrilled that we own such a gorgeous piece or fabric art. You rock.
