The 3rd birthday is a pretty special one. Your little baby is no longer a baby. He can take care of himself in many ways and has an opinion of his own. This is most likely the first birthday party where your little guy really has an opinion or can make choices regarding his special day. LP turned 3 years old on Monday and we celebrated his birthday on Sunday with our family. LP is an independent, curious, and easy-going farm boy who loves anything with wheels, being a big brother and reading books. So when we asked him about a month ago what he'd like on his birthday cake he excitedly chose Curious George. LP loves reading Curious George books & watching Curious George on television. He loves how George is silly and always on an adventure.
Curious George Super Sticker Coloring Book. (By the way, if you know a Curious George fan, this is a must have sticker/coloring book. It is reasonably prized and literally has 100's of stickers and coloring pages. LP loves his!)

baked beans, chips and dip, and of course cake and ice cream! It is tradition for us to have cake and homemade ice cream at birthday parties. For the birthday cake we decided to make banana cake, since there was a Curious George monkey theme for the party. I made a double layer, 12" circle cake. I have so much fun using my frosting tips and really enjoyed making LP's Curious George cake with him right by my side, ready for a dab of frosting anytime I needed to change tips!
Our whole family had a great time celebrating LP's birthday! We had fun doing a few simple DIY projects to make his third birthday special and unique for him. What are some birthday party DIY projects you're proud of?
