Xander's Birthday Party

We had a lovely time at Xander's birthday party. We had a really good turn out and the weather was beautiful- albeit a little hot. Xander wanted tractors on his birthday cake so we went with a John Deere theme, which was a lot of fun! It was actually a lot harder than I thought it would be to find tractor decorations. I ended up having to get them online but I did find these wonderful little table tents that had spaces for photos. I dug through boxes of pictures, what a trip down memory lane..., and found a bunch of pictures to use for the tents. I tried to pick a good selection of pictures throughout his life so far and I think they came out really nicely. It will make a nice souvenir for Xander's memory box anyway. We also had a tractor pinata and of course tractors on the cake just per Xander's request! The cake was made by Xander's godmother, aka the queen of cakes! Didn't she do an amazing job. Xander kept trying to play with his cake like it was a toy. He wanted to scoop the dirt and push the tractor through the dirt...Mostly I was able to keep his fingers off until after everyone had their piece! So we had tons of good food, lots of good company, delicious cake, and Xander got lots of fun presents. His favorite presents after te party were a truck that you can take apart and put back together with a toy screwdriver and a wheelie tower from Fisher-Price. What more could a three year old boy want?
