3 is a Magic Number {Sunday Snapshot}

The day before Perry's third birthday, he was SO he excited!  I believe our conversation went a little like this:

{Settings: f/2.2  SS 1/1250  ISO 400}

P: Tonight, I am two.  Tomorrow, I'll be Fwee!  And den da nex yeer, I'll be Four, and den da nex yeer, I'll be Five, and den I'll be Six!

Me: Oh, Perry!  Stop counting!!  I need you to stop growing and just be three forever!

P: Uhg!  Mah-mmmmeeeeeeee!  I haf to keep gwowing so I can get big and pway footbaw!

The party was absolutely amazing, though the morning was VERY rushed (hence I didn't get quite as many decor shots as I wanted :/).  In the process of putting together all the decorations, I killed three glue-guns, so I had to borrow one from my Mom that morning to finish.  Also, our refrigerator breaker got tripped somehow and in the midst of all the glue-gun panic, we just assumed it went out too- after all, in that past week, I had also killed our dishwasher and a phone charger...Side note, if you would like to keep your electronics in tact, I suggest not bringing them around me.  I'm not even going to tell you how many computers have mysteriously died in the past year under my care.... Anyway, so while I sent Justin and P to the grocery store to get all the balloons, I was packing our fridge full of ice bags and bagging up what I thought needed to go to my Mom's for the morning to save.  Luckily that evening, we realized it was just the breaker- whew!



I enjoyed making Perry's birthday hat a little more pizazzled for his special day.  By the end of the party, the Happy Birthday part had gotten a little wet and the ink bled a little bit.  It actually made me pretty sad.  


My talented Mom did this the morning of the party.  Did I mention her and my Dad did an AMAZING ice sculpture at my wedding?!  



Notice the discrepancy among the many cupcakes.  One batch turned out SO perfect.  The next batch, that I made the EXACT same way, turned out SO janked up.  No explanation other than I'm a good cook, not a baker.


Becky made sure we had beautiful flowers for the occasion. 







I'm not sure who was more excited about this toy, Perry or his Daddy!





There were SO many people at P's party... I'm pretty sure about 18 kids/50ish people in all, and given that the first 30 minutes of the party I was frantically running around trying to figure out where in the WORLD I had stashed the hot dog/hamburger buns I didn't get as many photos as I would have liked of the guests either.  I tried my hardest to make it around to everyone and visit for a little bit of the hour I had while not searching for food or celebrating with P.  It was pretty crazy, but Perry had a blast and I enjoyed seeing many friends and family, so all the chaos was definitely worth it!  Thank you all so much who came by.  We were so blessed by your kindness and fun personalities.  Celebrating three years old wouldn't have been the same without ya'll!


Thanks for swimming by!
