I promised to come back and share a few details from Teagan’s Valentines Day Mohawk Party (as Taryn called it). Here goes….
the two large hearts on the right were made by taryn and ty and they hung on the front door the day we brought teagan home from the NICU. i was so excited when i found them in our valentines day decorations box and hung them in the foyer for his party.
party favors, each child had their own little mailbox with goodies tucked inside.
we made valentines, everyone made on for themselves for their box and then one for teagans. we put all of teagans valentines in a scrapbook with photos from his party.
little dude photo by michele, fit our mohawk theme perfectly 😉 i also saw the cake michele had made for her litte man by humble pie desserts on her blog and called to see if they had any room for a big old cake on valentines day. i was thrilled with how it turned out, Jeanna did an awesome job! it not only looked great, but it was so yummy too. the custom made birthday hat is from this seller on etsy. Loved the hat, durable and soooo well made, the inside has a custom fabric in brown dots, super cute!
the cute little smash cake….
we ate more than cake though….lots of heart shaped food
loved this idea from bakerella….little oreo cakesters cut out with cookie cutters, so cute! if you don’t follow her blog, you should, it rocks!
my boys. i love the way teagan is looking over his shoulder (he was looking at my friend alli…he loves making sweet eyes with alli)….and ty was sporting the faux hawk
a few of his favorite gifts….i spy a cute little lily, a geegee and a boy thrilled with the ball pit.
cake time baby
and MC was worried about the teeny tiny little crayon mark jack got on the table cloth….puh-lease 😉
oh yeah, it was good. i think this one is my absolute favorite of the day.
now for a little video….and as always….a few things to note:
if there is anything i hate worse than the way i laugh, it is the way i sing. that’s not me you hear singing. nope. no way. no how.
when it first starts up you’ll hear taryn say “i’m scared” in the background. the child has a complete and total irrational fear of the happy birthday song. hid under the table and all.
ty is sitting next to teagan just out of the shot. ty wanted more than anything for taryn to dive in to her cake and she wanted nothing to do with it when she turned one. ty had big hopes for teagan that involved a face plant. you’ll hear him egging teagan on, he gives the order and teagan goes for it, p.e.r.f.e.c.t. ty was thrilled. and it totally cracks me up.
i love the way teagan takes his first bite….mmmmmm
i think that is all, just remember, that is not me singing.
So, there are all the details, we had a lot of fun and loved celebrating our little man.
Love all the pictures!! Your family is just so beautiful! Everything looked perfect!! I have 4.5 yr old twins and they too have this phobia of singing Happy Birthday. I don’t get it and have never even heard of such a thing until my girls turned 1 then 2 and 3 and 4 and we’re still not aloud too sing and forget when we go to someone else’s party.. you can usually find us in the bathroom when the singin part comes. someday they’ll like it.
Wow, I can’t let my kids see this! You know how to through a party!
Absolutely adorable!! Everything looked perfect. Wanna come plan, organize, decorate, and photograph one of my kids’ parties? Hee! Hee! 🙂
The party looks like so much fun.
The video is so classic.
What a great day! Happy birthday all over again, T!
your favorite of the day is mine as well. awesome moment!
I don’t even know you personally but I welled up pretty good when I came to the pics of him with the cake. Somebody could/should make a greeting card out of your favorite one….with the feet on the table post-cake. Absolutely awesome. Love your blog. i’m a regular follower.
what a fabulous party! beautiful decorations, beautiful food, and of course beautiful children 🙂 you give me the worst baby fever ever. i need to stay away from the blog for awhile. 🙂
love the shots of teagan with his cake!!
You have a lovely voice and the most beautiful laugh.
I love the way you care for your children and the way you celebrate life.
You.Are.Amazing.At.All.That.You.Do! Thanks for being you!

Ok, I didn’t watch the video yet, but I have to say that these pictures are great. The Party must have been amazing. I would have loved to get one of the cute mailboxes (what a cool idea. And teagan eating the cake. Come on. He is just the cutest kid I have ever seen. He will be a huge entertainer one day. Now off to see the video.
Your voice is great! I can say that because have a college degree in vocal music education. I hope you use it to sing to your kids! (singing to kids = VERY important, a message from my inner music educator!) I love these pictures and the video! Super duper fun. I wish I had the talent to pull off birthday parties. I love the frosting on Teagan’s face!
Girl you rock in every way! Love the details of the party 🙂 Where did you get that custom name sign from? I would to get one of those!!
this is great, thank you for sharing your adorable family, I love the pictures ofcourse and the video is too funny!

Cute! Looks like Teagan had a great birthday!! Love his cake!
That video is Awe.Some! Looks like fun! 🙂

The last photo with the balloons is absolutely priceless. You should sell that image for a birthday greeting card for sure.
Ok it is official you are never coming to my crappy birthday parties that involves two balloons and a cake..LOL
Now I might have a valentines baby so I can throw a sindig like this..hahaha
These are TOO precious. You are quite the Martha Stewart, planning and executing everything down to the last detail 🙂 Just awesome!
Adorable party! Do you remember where you got the pom pom things that were hanging from the ceiling at your daughter’s party?
A few months ago, I discovered iheartfaces.com … this week’s contest was “Happy Birthday!” and it took me until this morning to remember where I’d seen the BEST BIRTHDAY PICTURE EVER… it’s right here, on your blog. The last pic (party14) would’ve been a sure winner. Seriously – best birthday picture EVER.
