Pete the Cat Birthday

My little buddy turned 3 this week. People tell you that kids grow up fast, but I never believed that till I had my own. The days can be long, but the years are short… For this 3rd birthday, we went with a Pete the Cat theme. If you have small children, you’ve probably heard of Pete. If you haven’t, you need to check the books out of your local library. They are fantastic. My son has a Pete doll that goes with him everywhere.

I feel like I’ve made Zac several shirts over the past few months so I wanted to do something a little different for this one. I love the blue sleeves on the baseball tee, and decided to put his name and the number 3 on the back to play on that theme.

I also made a garden flag using the same Pete appliqué.

For activities we played “pin the button on Pete” and the kids decorated sugar cookie shirts with M&M buttons.

Decorations were simple. I used scrapbook paper to make bunting for the mantle and put some books up there too. I never got a picture of the food, or the cake pops that I slaved over. The kids had cupcakes. Zac had a fantastic time and I’m so thankful for our friends and family who came to celebrate with him!
