Happy Third Birthday Wren!

It is still so hard to believe it was only three years ago that Wren was born because it feels like she has always been a part of our family, but at the same time it seems hard to believe that she is so big already!! For her big day we wanted to include all her favorite things, specially because it was such an exciting event for her this year. She hung out with her Grandma and Grandpa all day on Friday so I could get everything ready which was really fun for me because she didn't see it all until Saturday morning and the look on her face was priceless!
Balloons are one of her all time favorite things! Even a simple trip to the grocery store becomes difficult as we walk by the floral area and balloons are floating around...

Popcorn is another favorite and so are pickles so some dill pickle flavored popcorn was a good find. Kettle corn was the alternative for anyone not sold on her preferred flavor.

My love for all things at SuperStore made the beverage choices easy and even color coordinated with our party perfectly! These bottled italian sodas were both cheap ($2.50 each) and delicious!

I would not have gotten anything done if those little fingers were into everything on Friday.
Paper lunch sacks make cheap and easy loot bags.

Wren did help with one element and that was putting sprinkles on our cupcakes. I found these adorable cupcake liners at HomeSense for $2 back in September and am wishing I would have gotten more because they baked beautifully, didn't require a muffin tin so I could bake 2 dozen at once.



My ballon baby, oops, I mean BIG girl!

The whole day was a huge success and would have been flawless if both Sean and myself weren't fighting a horrible 24 hour flu that had us both nauseous and walking zombies. But once the guests arrived I totally forgot how bad I felt and we all had a blast~
We had the party on Saturday, but today is Wren real Birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Wrennie Girl!

The yellow and pink together was a great idea! I'm currently fighting the fever/cough, and completely understand the zombie comment. ;)

You are a wonderful Mom to work so diligently though battling a mean old bug. Your diligence paid off and Wren's birthday is a wonderful combination of fun, happiness and beauty...a lot like her Mom!
