A Princess and Tractor Party

The twins turned three this month. THREE! It's hard to believe 3 years ago I was a crying heap of hot mess. I would cry because I felt so amazed and grateful for two beautiful kids (at the same time! I mean really? Two babies in my tummy at the same time! Totally crazy!) And then the next second I was crying because having twin infants was SO hard and all I wanted was 5 straight minutes of sleep.

Well, now they are three. They are in Big Kid Beds, Big Kid Undies and their own Big Kid Rooms! Everything about them seems to be big kid!

Sweet girl twin shares a room with her 2 sisters. She loves princesses and hates taking naps. Her 'quiet time' is almost never actually quiet. She has the cutest little pout when she doesn't get what she wants. She is a sweet big sister and a devoted little sister. She always wants to help mama with the chores; making dinner, washing windows, cleaning the bathroom or doing the laundry! She loves ridding her bike and our horse. She has turned in to a super wonderful Big Kid!!

Buddy Boy is the most amazing little man you will ever meet. He is happy and almost always silly. But he also has a sweet side to him that makes my heart melt! He has a special bond with his Paps (my father in law). They are two peas in a pod. He loves almost everything that is boy.... Tractors, four wheelers, motorcycles, sandboxs and dirt!

To celebrate their 3rd year of twindom we had a Princess and Tractor BBQ. Daddy made Buddy Boy a sandbox. He loves it (the girls do too) but I totally didn't think it through. With in an hour I had sand all over my house! It's like living at the beach with out the ocean or the vacation!! We got him some new tractors to play with to go with the party theme.

Sweet Girl Twin wanted Snow White to come to her party. So we invited her and guess what? She came!! I enjoyed meshing the two themes of Snow White and Tractors!

The Food.
We had Burgers and Hot Dogs as well as.....






 

 A tractor full of hay bales!
 
 Cupcakes to look like Snow Whites dress.
 
A construction seen cake for Buddy Boy!
He was so excited to get the trucks off the top!
 
 
The Party!





 
 
The Wishing Well
 
Make a wish.
 
Throw in a penny.
 
 And get a lip gloss!
(there were cars and trucks for the boys!)
 
 
The cake!
I thought about paying someone to make the cakes
but then I decided to give it a try!
They turned out pretty good of an armature!


 
The princesses and some of our little guests!
 




 Our neighbor and someone Buddy Boy loves gave the twins a ride around the neighborhood.
Sweet girl is keeping it classy in this one!
 




 
 
Birthday questionnaire.
I separated the twins when I asked them the questions so no one would be "sharing" answers!
