Happy Mother's Day... and a little pirate Jake!

Jake is *soooclose* to turning FOUR!

He had a small red scooter party a few weeks back {I'm sooo excited to share the pictures soon!}  When I asked him what kind of cupcakes he wanted to bring to preschool to celebrate his special day he requested
"Jake and the Neverland Pirates!"

I found these free printables on Cottage Industrialist and loved them.  Mine didn't work out quite like they were supposed to because you were supposed to put a toothpick through the top and bottom of the sail to make it "billow", but I just kept tearing the paper when I tried so I just taped them on to a cupcake pick instead.

For the "gold dabloons" I found these cute free printables at  I love using snack bags with toppers whenever I can because they are just as adorable as cellophane bags for a fraction of the price.

When Daddy came home last night, 
Jake told him all about his preschool celebration... 

his "4" shirt he wore 
his share toy {Baby Zebra} 
the pirate ship cupcakes 
the gold dabloons

And here's my favorite part... 

when his Daddy said, "Wow, they did all that for you?!"
Jake said, "No, Mommy did!"

And his cute little voice expressing appreciation 
for the little things I do for him make it all worthwhile  
{even though he did pee in his empty water table in the backyard the day before}

While it is for sure the most challenging job ever, being called "Mommy" by our three little guys will forever be the biggest blessing in my life!

Happy Mother's Day to all you Mommies, 
and someday Mommies!!

First of all, NOTHING better than hearing your little one acknowledge what you do for them. And you do SO much, and have the sweetest, most appreciative boys. :)

Second - I love that pic of you and Jake! I have been waiting on pins and needles to see those pics! They look like they are going to be amazing! :)
