Today was finally the day for Will's big Mickey Mouse birthday party!

A lot of work went into this party and it ended up being a great day.  This morning was a little bumpy. I was stressed and Will was upset.  I am not really sure what was wrong with him but he was super clingy and he didn't want leave the house.  Of course, once he got to the gym and saw his party all set up, my stress went away and he was a happy boy!  He was in awe of all the Mickey Mouse stuff and headed straight for the bounce house.

Mickey was the central theme and I used phrases from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse throughout the party.

So many of our family and friends came out to celebrate. We are so blessed to have people in our lives who love Will so much! It brings me to tears thinking about how much he means to so many people. He really has brought our family closer together and made our friends like family.  He is definitely a bright spot in all of our lives.

We had the party around lunch time so we served lunch and had birthday cupcakes.  My mom did all the food and made the cupcakes. This party would not have happened without her!  Also, Julie and Kristen helped me so much. They did everything I asked of them and I am so glad to call them my friends!

This year we continued the tradition of collecting gifts for a charity instead of having everyone bring a gift for Will. Once again, our family and friends went above and beyond, but I am going to save the details for another post!

The party can best be explained through pictures so here we go...
