Celebrating Emerson!

This weekend we had a Dinosaur themed party for Emerson's 3rd birthday. We had family and friends over to our house to help us celebrate.

Here's the invitation…

I made Dinosaur Toenails (by dipping Bugles in melted chocolate almond bark)…

There were several different dinosaur cookies (I used small dinosaurs to make the footprints in my sugar cookie dough then sprinkled them with cinnamon and sugar and then glazed several too)…

I used one of our decks to set up child size tables and chairs that I rented from Confetti's…

Each sandbox had dinosaurs, dino skeletons and "surprise rocks", I do believe the surprise rocks were quite the hit!!

Emerson loved digging for his dinosaurs. Look what he found inside his rock…

We did our first ever, piƱata, I must say it was quite challenging for that sucker to break loose!

It was mass mayhem when it finally broke and set free more sugary goodness!

We sang Happy Birthday to our special little guy…

I think he really enjoyed his cupcake and jello cup!

He had fun ripping open and seeing all of his new toys.

After the party I asked him "what part of your party was your favorite?" His response was, "I loved all the dinosaurs!" So I guess it was a hit for him, and that is really all that matters!

It was fun having a bunch of our friends and family there to celebrate with us…
