Grady Tucker's 3rd Birthday Party!

This past Saturday afternoon we celebrated Grady's 3rd Birthday at our house with a cook-out and fun Monster theme!

We ate tons and tons of my hubby's good hamburgers, hot dogs, and sausage! I swear I must have eaten at least 3 plates that day! We kept the party to just close friends and family as I was on "bed rest" (although couch rest is more like it!). We really all just relaxed and enjoyed the day watching the kiddos play in the back yard.

I am forever grateful to my super wonderful sister-in-law Melanie who pretty ran the show and made sure that the day was a hit for me! I will forever love her for all the running around she did, interference she ran, and help she gave me. Love you Mel!

I found the cutest printable decorations at at etsy shop call Totful Memories. It was crazy affordable and then I was able to print most of the paper decorations myself! Here are some of the fun signs that were included in the kit. I did take them to an office supply store to have them laminated though.

We went pretty low-key on the activities for the party. We just let the kids play outside on our swing set, the trampoline and in our sandbox. We did have a fun "water station" set up with some water toys so the kids wouldn't get too hot. (Aack, here in Texas it's already 101 degrees outside!)

After we all ate and then played some more we did the cake and cupcakes! Sooo yummy and the colors came out soo good on them!

I love love love this sweet boy more than life itself. I can not believe that he is already 3 years old! 

*****Is anyone else still having problems with their Google account to where it's darn near impossible to leave a comment?? I'm super frustrated right now.  I swear I'm reading everyone's blogs still but just can not hardly comment at all!! ******
