Mother of Boys

Drake is 2!

Friday was Drake’s 2nd birthday so we decided to party Backyardigans style.

Before the party Lisa and Drake had fun with the party hats.

I bought the newest Backyardigans DVD – The Mighty Knights and pulled lots of amazing stuff from You can print off paper costumes, but I decided to make these easy ones from 1/2 yard of fabric and ribbon. Drake is Pablo the king, Emily is the fairy, and…

Tyson was supposed to be a knight, but he wouldn’t put on the costume. So Dylan wore it instead.

We kept it simple and only invited 2 guests, Emily and Tyson. I had costumes, popsicle stick puppets, bubble wands, and echo phones for each guest.

I transformed the living room into a castle with butcher paper, complete with the Dragon, King Pablo, and the Grabbing Goblin.

We played pin the crown on Pablo, played with bubbles,

(I’m bubbling over with love for my man!) he he

watched the DVD, and opened presents.

While we were singing, Drake folded his arms for the prayer. What a cutie pie.

The boys helped him blow out his candles. I was surprised to find out that Drake new exactly what to do. As soon as the candle was lit, be tried to blow it out.

The party was only an hour (perfect) and so much fun! You could tell Drake felt so important and loved all the extra attention. We got him Geotrax and it was a huge hit will all 3 of the boys. Davis keeps saying that “he loves playing with toddler toys. It makes him feel younger.” ha ha

  1. ♥ You’re awesome! I love the castle look! I would have never thought to do that! Looks great and the kids look like they’re having a blast, and you too! 🙂

  2. Yet again… another amazing execution by Laurie! It looks great!! And I think that I don’t want my kids to grow up with your kids… if they ever go to one of your parties – they’re gonna think my parties are lame! Oh well… 😉
