Dude's Big Week

It all started with the Jackster turning 3!
Look at that grin.
How could you not with all the spoiling that went on around here? And I do mean spoiling! Many late nights, or more like early mornings, where spent to spoil him. Really though, it was about time he was the recipient of mom and dad's work.
First, we transformed Jack's room as he slept the night before his bday, in honor of the big move from toddler bed to "big boy" bed. Although its still just a mattress on the floor, thus, Dude doesn't consider it "big" yet. Guess he can't get much air jumping off... poor kid. And I'm so going to share how the cityscape was done, so you've been warned!
Stink likes the bean bag chair.

Then we set up and filled a sandbox Boz made. I know, he's getting so handy- I LOVE IT.And that night he got to party with grandma, grandpa and uncle Sam. And yes... the cake is pink. I couldn't get the strawberry ice cream any more red without sacrificing flavor. An unwilling trade.

And oh yes, how can I forget... The one thing he kept saying he wanted was "black spider-man pajamas". Momma delivered :). Sorry, I'm gloating, but I'm pretty excited that they actually turned out.Made from a soft jersey knit, I top stitched the web design on the chest. Appliqued a spider (made from an old grey T-shirt).And by Boz's request - a hood, complete with eye holes . A bit snug for the big dude.

Mid-week Jack got to start preschool! Co-op with a few other mommies.
Future Preschoolers :).
Would you believe these cute little twins are only a week older than Charlotte? My petite Stink.
And we got to end the week with a BANG! Jack celebrated his bday again with friends, Toy Story style. We had a blast!Heck, I had a blast... and now I'm ready to get some more sleep :).Happy Birthday my little dude. I sure love you.
