let's go bananas party

It was a blessing to have so many loved ones share in our birthday festivities over the weekend for Titus' 3rd birthday, especially in light of our move next week!

As I looked at everyone having a good time at the party, the kids playing, the adults talking... I got kind of sentimental! I'm just overwhelmed by God's blessing on our lives the past 5 1/2 years that we've lived here in Fremont, and so thankful for all the relationships we've made! In light of celebrating Titus' birthday, it was so special to me as a mom to see all the people in my little guy's life who came out to show their love and support for him! He had such a blast!

Because this will be his last birthday here, we invited all his little friends and their parents, plus our family and a few special people. There were a LOT of people, especially kids! 13 kids total (Twelve of them ages 4 and under!) So there was lots of noise- aided by all the sugar, of course! But so much fun!

This was the first year Titus could get really excited about his birthday, and helped out a lot with the party! Although it's definitely not the best looking cake I've ever made, it's special because Titus picked what kind he wanted, helped me bake it and decorate it! It was fun to do it together!

I found this party theme from Hostess with the Mostess! Titus loves Curious George, but I loved it because it is based off the Classic Curious George books, so the theme is mostly based on the red, yellow and light blue colors found in the books, rather than being so character-theme focused! I kept it focused on the colors, patterns and bananas! We already owned the books and a lot of the decor so it wasn't an expensive party to put on!

Here's some pictures of the party!

Titus Remington is 3!

It's hard to believe that today my baby boy is 3! He has grown from that precious bundle of handsome-ness that made me a mother, to the constantly energetic, curious, talkative, sweet, tender-hearted boy that he has become! I can't even believe how this little boy has completely captured my heart! I grow more in love with him everyday! I melt at his every smile and sweet word! I'm sure all you mothers understand that feeling! :) And I'm also so thankful for his tender heart towards others and towards spiritual things! I constantly pray for his salvation and I know he's still young, but he has such a child-like faith that I pray that maybe this could be the year he gives his heart to Christ!

Happy Birthday, Titus Remington! I love you!

We celebrated Titus' birthday this weekend with lots of family and friends at his Curious George party! A picture heavy post will be coming tomorrow of the festivities!! :)
