One more month...

..until my little guy turns 4!!! I'm so tired of saying it but really, where does the time go?!? It's going to go even faster since I'm working on invites every free second I get, then there's crafts and food prep, he'll be 4 before I know it! But I'm really enjoying the planning of this Mickey theme!

For some odd reason, like I have extra time on my hands, I went ahead and made the invites instead of taking the cheaper/simplier route and buying them from a party store. I blame it on Disney's for having a cute snowman with Mickey ears hat, after seeing that I had to make Gavin's party a winter Mickey theme! And it was great that both boys could help in decorating the cards, it gave us lots to do inside on these cold blustery days!

Can't wait to start on making the goodies, found some great ideas with some online ispiration!

Don't know that I'll get to make these cookies but they are super cute!

Instead, as part of the favors, I opted to try my hand at making these cuties, really...can't...wait!

I am using the cake pan from my Mother-in-Law that she used for my hubby when he was a kid. At first glance I was trying to figure out what I could put ontop of Mickey's head instead of a drum major's hat to make it look more updated, but cannot seem to come up with any unique ideas, besides a birthday hat. I'll just have to see what comes to mind when I actually go to decorate it. But keeping with the family sentiments I may just leave it as is too.

At least this is giving me a jump start on Carter's 3rd party, he want's Special Agent Oso and of course there's nothing at any party store or online, guess I'll be crafting a word document for him too :)
