A Tonka Truck Birthday Party

Little Tucker turns 1 year old tomorrow and we celebrated today. His momma wanted to have a Tonka Truck party and it was the cutest! Tucker is destined to be the life of any party; he enjoyed eating, singing and most of all dancing at his party.

Here are some photos from his cute party!

Meg's made a cute pennant banner that said Tonka Truck. She also cut out various big trucks and used them too. I love how one letter is a circle and the next is a square!

How cute are these sugar cookies! Almost too cute to eat...Almost!

The big people's birthday cake. 

Both cakes, Tucker's individual cake pan  is in the foreground and the bigger cake in the background. 

Dumpcake served in a dump truck.

At the last minute, the party was moved to the garage. Uncle Gary Lee opened the garage door and how cool did the pennant banner look hanging like that!

The birthday boy himself! He is sporting a handmade shirt by his Momma. Made out of the same material as the banner.

Lots of gifts! He was amazing at opening presents!

Another gift! I hate to say this but a musical birthday card might have received the biggest reaction from him. He was dancing and groovin' all over the place!

CAKE CAKE CAKE. Tucker gets to eat cake! We could not even get a posed photo of him and the cake because as soon as he saw the cake, his fingers were in it!

I am not sure if he enjoyed eating as much as  he enjoyed playing with it!

yummy yummy! He finally picks up a piece of CAKE and not just FROSTING!


  1. This is very useful information on your birthday party. Last month, I arranged my nephew’s birthday party at one of beautiful LA event venues. Invited all my family and friends for this party and we all had great time together.

My Weekend Project: A PVC Camping Lamp Post and Flag Holder

I have seen a few of these around campsites and I knew I would like to have one. The only problem that I had is The Husband.

He already thinks we drag too much stuff with us when we go camping and if I had told him my desire to have a PVC Camping Light Pole he would have shut it down quickly!

So, that leaves a girl with only one choice: Figure out how to do it by herself.

I did some internet searching and found a few road maps on RV forums. They seemed easy enough!

I visited the local hardware store for the supplies:

An exterior post lantern light2 inch PVC pipe (I used 5 feet but had to purchase a 10 foot piece)A 3 inch toilet flangeA 3 inch to 2 inch ReducerPVC GlueA 12 foot electric cord kit2 - 3/4 inch PVC Caps I also used a few supplies we already had on hand:

White Spray Paint

3 1/2 foot - 3/4 inch PVC PipeDrill Bits (1 inch and 1/2 inch)Tent Stakes

The first step was preparing the lantern light. I could only find black in the store and I knew I wanted all white. I covered the gla…

Camping Activity: Wood Chip Necklaces

My worry in taking a wide range of kids camping is that the younger kids would be happy just playing together but the older ones, the one's in that awkward pre-teen/teen age, would think everything was so uncool they would just sit around and mope. So I designed a few activities that would hopefully get them up, participating, and moving.

 I came home from work a few weeks before the Family Camp-out and found my neighbors had trimmed their tree limbs and piled the mess in my yard. I refrained from getting angry. Over a nice dinner, I asked The Husband to help me with a little project.

He looked at me in disgust. I was pulling him away from ESPN to help with an unnecessary camping craft.

 I admit I did some begging. In the end, The Husband borrowed his father's chainsaw and decided to help me cut medallions out of a limb.  His mood started changing, quickly.{I then begged him to let me try my hand at the chainsaw, but he would not let budge on that one. I had to settle for hol…

Hand Made Gifts: Tutu Ornaments

My  Short Chic is turning into a little dancer. To thank the dance teachers for their help, we decided to make them a little gift for Christmas. A tutu ornament.

Supplies needed:

Tulle. I selected black, white and hot pink. The pink and white both have glitter {I have been walking around for the past four days with glitter all over me!}. Glass Ornaments that coordinate with your tulle. Some kind of string {I used stretch magic}. And some super glue.

Step 1: Cut  the tulle. 

I learned, from trial and error, that my cell phone was roughly the right size. So, I used it as a template for cutting the tulle.  
Step 2: Tie the tulle to the string.

Using a simple slip knot, tie the tulle onto the string {or Stretch Magic}. I think I used about 40 loops per ornament.
Step 3:  Adhere it to the Ornament.
I do not have a photo of this step. But simply, you take some super glue and glue the tutu ring to the ornament. 
FINISHED!  Once the glue is dried, you are finished. {Well except the wrapping!} I …
