peter pan party

i love birthdays & i especially love birthday parties.

there is nothing like seeing the joy on someones face when there is a day dedicated to just them

especially when it is for my little boy.

shane has loved peter pan ever since i bought him the movie last february. he literally would ask to watch it EVERYDAY.

& soon became obsessed with playing peter pan. always wanting to sword fight like michael & john- always pretending…

he soon started to pretend & call me wendy & justin john.

on most nights before we would put him to bed he would say “goodnight wendy, goodnight john-i love you”

so i knew that when i started thinking about what kind of party to throw for him i knew he would LOVE a peter pan theme.

so after hours of planning, shopping, crafting & searching pinterest for ideas this is the final result.

i had so much fun putting this all together & even though years from now shane probably won’t remember

me doing this for him- in that moment the joy on his face was all worth it!

shane you are three

my shane,

happy birthday!

you are three.

when did this even happen?


i feel like it was just yesterday i was rocking you in my arms & now you have turned into this little person with so much personality.

you are sensitive.

you are kind.

you are rambunctious.

you are active.

you are loving.

you are an entertainer.

you are cuddly.

you are stubborn at times.

you are playful.

you are full of joy.

you are extremely outgoing & friendly.

you are talkative.



i see so much of your daddy in you. you have his kind, sensitive heart & his friendly demeanor. i hope you never lose either of those as you grow. i pray that you always stay sensitive to God’s leading & always treat others with the kindness that God has shown to you. i hope that you are always as friendly & welcoming to people as you are now. you have no fear of rejection when you meet people & i love that i can see that in you…always be friendly to those around you & look not just to have friends, but to be a friend.

i love you to the moon & back! happiest birthday!

any day at disney is a good day, but when it is your third birthday i don’t think it gets much better than that.

i love this little guy more than i could ever say. i tried so hard the whole day not to cry & be sad that he is getting so big, but at the end of the day when we were watching the world of color & shane was sitting on top of his dads shoulders-it happened-those sweet tears of thankfulness & joy for the blessing his life, just ran down my cheeks. it is a moment i will never forget. i feel so overwhelmed with God’s blessing on my life & i hope that i never forget that these precious times together is really what it is all about.
