Daniel's 3rd Birthday Party

Sunday, March 4th we celebrated Daniel's 3rd birthday with a Thomas the Train birthday party at our house. I can hardly believe it has been three years that we welcomed this fun-loving, sweet boy into our family. He is such a blessing and we love him to pieces!!

It wasn't hard selecting a theme for his party since he is OBSESSED with Thomas the Train! I thought we could do just a train party, but no, it had to be Thomas.

We rented a bouncy house for the party. It was a lot of fun and the weather was perfect. Don't you just love the static hair?




One of the funniest moments at the party was when Daniel "tried" to blow out the candles. I bought sparkler candles for him, but every time you thought he'd blown them out, they would flame back up. Everyone thought I'd gotten the trick candles, but they weren't. They just needed a little ore wind than usual to extinguish. Needless to say it was funny!

He blew, and he blew....

Ian and Bronner decided to help out. So all three blew, and blew...

Then finally Paw Paw picked him up and helped him out just a little....

And yea.....finally they are out!

Mr. Bush and Mrs. Irene (aka Banjo and Sparkles) came for the entertainment.
They tied all kind of balloon animals...

Did a little face painting....

and did lots of magic tricks that had everyone amazed!



Daniel and Banks were so happy to see each other!

We were so happy sweet Brittan and Miss Virginia Kate got to come.

Daniel wanted his teacher from school to come to his party. He was SO excited when Miss Sara showed up!! Thanks, Miss Sara for coming and making his day!


Isn't this little train conductor the cutest thing ever??

Georgie and Andy sword fighting....
but they really love another!!

Daniel and his best buddy, Warren saying good-bye. Sweetest thing ever!


Happy Birthday, Daniel Dawson Butler!!!

Thanks for inviting us to share Daniel's birthday! He is such a sweet boy, and you did a lovely job making the day really special for him (and the rest of us :-). Hope your whole year is just as fun as your party, Daniel!!

I love the train track pathway!!! Such a good idea to introduce the theme of the party from the start and get the guests excited about the party early! For more help planning your child's party go to www.funtiqueparties.com.
