I'm three!

Noah woke up on his birthday saying "I'm three, its my birthday!" I love this age cause they KNOW its their birthday and its just so exciting for them. Because his birthday was on a normal work day for Clint I took him and Autumn to go get some ice cream. They put a cool sparkler in the ice cream, which Noah LOVED but he didn't realize that the "no touch" applied to after the sparkler went out....hense the face after he touched it....don't worry he didn't cry :)
After that he played for a good two hours in the playground and was so proud that he climbed all the way to the top where the canons were....
On Saturday we had a little party for him....he asked for Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cake, his absolute favorite thing at the moment. Sometimes I'll hear him sing the theme song in his room while he's playing "Come inside its fun inside"

Cookies with Mickey's shorts and fun to make!
My friend Taz has a preschool class where her theme is Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, so I didn't have to buy anything, she lent me her tablecloth and a TON of decorations, so cool. I made the banner from a Mickey Ears font I found online (I love cool fonts!)

Noah woke up from his nap saying..."mommy, where are all the people? I want to say to them...come, come in!"

Clint prayed thanking God for Noah's little life.
He was so excited to eat Mickey's face that we decided to do the cake first thing. Here he is smiling as everyone sang happy birthday!
He knew exactly what to do and waited till the song was over to blow out his candle "all by myself"

Me and my big three year old!

He was so excited that I let him help me cut the cake with a real knife.
He wanted to eat Mickeys face AND the door to the Clubhouse (Mickey's foot) He got much enjoyment out of this....

Some of the young adult girls who often babysit and just love on my kiddos, what a blessing to have them! Noah loves these girls alot and will often talk about them.

Some of the babies with their mommies....

Playing with some of the kids wearing his Mickey Mouse ears. The girls kept fighting over the tools, and a few times I caught the little boys playing with Autumn's dolly, so funny.
Autumn, our little adventurer, loved chasing all the kids around the garden

Daddies with their daughters (aww)

Opening presents, he got a fireman hat from Cait which he loves

He'd open one, and then get so excited for another one he'd rip open a new one before he had a chance to breath! I had to tell him to slow down and say "thank you" for each gift.

Well, I'm just so grateful that the Lord has sustained the life of our little boy for this long, we love every day with him. :)

I've totally been thinking for awhile to do a Mickey & Minnie theme for Sam and Emma's birthdays...where did you find the banner online?

You did a great job!

I just downloaded the font and made it like 100 or so and printed out the letters and glued them to colored paper. Here's the font website!
