My baby is three. I still can hardly believe it. We celebrated my sweet boy on New Year’s Eve day with a dump truck pizza party. This was the first year Levi really cared about his party. He was all over the place with his ideas. One day he would say he wanted a hen party and the next day it was a milk party and the next day it was a blanket party. Pretty much he would look around the room and whatever he saw that is what kind of party he wanted. Except the hen. I don’t know where the hen idea came from because there are no hens around here. He finally settled on a dump truck party. I can handle dump trucks.
I sent my ideas to Lauren and she came up with the invitation and all the printables. She is so great! And Lauren created a dump truck party pack that is now available in her shop. The invitation in the party pack is the same one we used.
The favors were chocolate rocks and construction vehicles. Levi helped me make these and thought they were so great. His cousins loved them too.
I usually just make cupcakes for birthdays but Levi kept talking about how he wanted a dump truck cake. Thankfully my sweet friend Julie makes the best cakes. Everyone should have a friend who is a cake baker. 🙂 I think this was Levi’s favorite part of his party.
If you are wondering about Griffin, he loved the party too…mostly because everyone was feeding him sweets.
Whenever Levi opened a present he would say, “Wow! Thaaaank you!” He was excited about every gift no matter what it was. I could learn a few things about thankfulness from him.
I wanted just one family picture on Levi’s birthday. Waiting until the end of the party with two boys who were on a sugar high and needed naps was not a good idea. But it is real life, right?
This was my favorite though. Sing it…
It’s my party and I”ll cry if I want to.
I love you Levi…even when you are crying! Happy birthday sweet boy!
