Meeska Mouska....

MICKEY MOUSE!!!

Jack is very into Mickey right now - adores him really, so it was only natural that he have a Mickey Mouse themed birthday party this year.

I kept the decorations tame - used a cupcake stand that I found at Walmart

It even came with the little cupcake toppers...so cute.

But the coup de gras....
My big personal touch...
The shirts.

As is my tradition for Jack's birthday (I don't know why but it has just happened this way) the boys had personalized shirts for the party.

This year, to go with our Mickey theme, and the fact that I can't wait for us to be able to take them to Disney World (in a few years) I made them Mickey Mouse ear shirts (inspired by the mouse ears that you can buy at Disney)
something about their expressions in this picture that I love - so serious

They were surprisingly easy to make - just a little felt fused to red shirts that I happened to already have.  I would have stitched them too, but I made them the night before the party (like the good little procrastinator that I am) and just didn't have the time




The hardest part was getting the felt to fuse without melting it (polyester craft felt, not nice wool felt) and writing the names since they were done free hand.

But really I'm quite proud of the shirts...

And what a wonderful day my little (growing-to-quickly) 3 year old baby had!!
