Carter's 3rd birthday party

Fun was had by all at our local bouncy house. I have never hosted a birthday party outside of our house so it was challenging and easy in some aspects. Kind of a control freak and have to set things up the way I like, but don't mind an extra hand when it comes to clean up. This year I did a Elmo theme for Carter bug because they are pretty close, him and Elmo have a special bond. Elmo is like a drug for kids, he has a way of sucking you in. Elmo currently has taken over our house with Rock n Roll Elmo, Tickle Me Elmo, Dancing Elmo, Elmo cell phone, Elmo playdough maker, Elmo CD player. . . I could keep going but you get the point.
Yet to have a party for C when he doesn't cry after the candles are blown out, although he loves to be the center of attention he is not such a fan at everyone staring at him wondering what his next move will be. Tried a new recipe for the cupcakes, I used beets for the coloring of the frosting and used them in the red velvet cupcakes. The cake was moist but the frosting was a little runny from the beets and more pink then red. But they were healthier! Eric told me to cool it because people don't come to parties to eat healthy. Worth a shot though, all those kiddos got there vegetables and didn't even know it!
Afterwards a few of my girlfriends and their families headed back to our house. The kids played and our house looked like a tornado went through it, but hey that's what parties are for right? I still can't believe Carter is three. It just seems like yesterday we were bringing him home from the hospital. Happy birthday little man, now let's celebrate Christmas. Talk about spoiled!
