SUPERJACK recap!

Its hard to believe my nephew Jackson is already three...but I guess I say that every time one of my kids turns a year older, too. Time just flies!

Last year Jack's baseball party was at our house because Rach and Brad's condo wasn't quite big enough for the amount of people that were coming. We loved it, but we were all overjoyed this year when they were able to sell their condo and buy a home (which just happens to be less than a mile away from our house =) in order to make room for Baby #2 coming in November.

We had a great day...here are some of the details...

Here is Jack and I...LOVE his cheeseball smile...and Jack's banner.



And then some party details...

1. First the cake...made by my high school BF Tracie, who always makes our cakes...they're so darn cute and delicious.

2. I made Jack's crown and hats for my kiddos to match. Rach bought superhero masks from Superfly Kidz on Etsy. Get them here!

3. My mom made Tate, Avery, and Jack superhero capes last year. Beckett was too small at the time, so she got one done for the party so they could all be superheroes for the day. Thanks a million, Mom!

4. I didn't get a very good picture, but Rach got plates, napkins, and silverware in coordinating colors from my fav online paper goods store, Plates and Napkins.




Time for cake!



I had designed a SUPERJACK logo for Jack's invitations (check them out HERE) which Rachel had used to make shirt for him. Then she asked if I could make logos so she could make T, A, & B their own shirts to wear to the party. They all looked so cute together!



My sisters and I always take a picture in the kids' hats. I am really not sure how this all started, besides the fact that we look for any excuse to take a picture together. =) So we decided this weekend that when we're old and we've all had kids we're making a book of all our pics of us in our kid's party hats. Total nerds...we realize.



Thanks, R, B, & J for the great day. Happy Birthday, Jackson Pete!

What a fabulous party! Everything turned out sooo cute!

Could you easily change that banner to say "Happy Father's Day?" If so, I might take it for Cory. I saw some cute super hero stuff for Father's Day somewhere. You can let me know!

I am also going to keep you in mind for a baseball party next year for Carson!

LOVE your Super Hero idea using your sons name! Super cute & super creative! Wondering if I can do something with this as a play on superheros in my sons bedroom!
