Ethan's Toy Story Birthday Party!

I was FINALLY able to get around to posting Ethan's birthday party pics!!! (still working on the wedding pics.. ha! there's just SO many!)

held Little Man's birthday party this past Saturday... in the HOT, HUMID, BREATH-TAKING (and not in a good way!) MEMPHIS HEAT!!! Thank goodness it was at my grandmother's house, so everyone could jump into the pool! He wanted a Toy Story party this year, so I went all out in the Buzz and Woody department! :) We tried to keep everything in accordance to his theme.. right down to the "Galactic Blue Punch", to the Cheetos that Bullseye steps on in TS2, to serving pizza from "Pizza Planet"! I think everyone had a blast!! And managed to survive the heat pretty well.

Here are the pictures that I took.. but I'm going to do another post with some more of Candice's photos too! Her's are SOOOOOO good!!!! :) I have to apologize about the picture quality too.. my Canon decided to stop working on me while in ATL, so I went out and bought an inexpensive Casio Exlim.. AWFUL!! I'm just so used to all the "bells and whistles" and high picture quality from my Canon that I just couldn't handle it! ha! So... I took it back, sent my Canon off to be repaired and will be purchasing a DSLR ASAP! :) So... I might be a w/o a camera for a week or two, but it'll all be worth it in the end!

grabbing a snack before his guests arrived!

candy buffet for goodie bags

the brown paper saks in the back were the actual goodie bags (w/sherrif badge tags!!)

we had gumballs, neon colored twizzlers, sour patch kids, skittles, suckers, and Toy Story goodies - pencils, stickers, blow outs..

Happy 3rd Birthday Ethan!

unfortunately we only had one long buffet table.. we definitely needed TWO! it was PACKED! The pizzas were a hit though.. absolutely NO leftovers! (I loathe leftovers!!):)

some of my friends doing what they do best, gossiping! ;) (love you ladies!!)

we decided to get a slip n slide too and it was a HIT! the kiddos LOVED it!!

and or course, we got the bounce house down from the attic.. always a party fave! :)

Ethan LOVED the slip n slide!!!

All the great grandparents stayed in the sunroom b/c it's air conditioned.. they were smart! :)

i brought the cupcake stand outside and sat it down, not even thinking that Huck was right next to me... he immediately went after it and got a good lick! :)

please excuse my pale-ness! ha!

Gosh - I love this bunch!

Everyone was exhausted after the party.. even Huck! :)

The kids and I headed back to the pool on Sunday, while Chris was at the golf tournament. I think staying in the water is the only way to survive this incredible heat these days! We had an amazing weekend!! I can not believe that my sweet baby is THREE years old!
