The 1st Annual Ray Goodfellow Memorial Pinewood Derby Race
Let me give a little background on this next party…
The teenager in this picture is my father-in-law, Ray. He passed away when my husband, Ryan, was 18. Ryan and I started dating a few years later, so I never met Ray. It didn’t take me long, however to realize how special Ray was to Ryan, how much he was loved and missed by him. Wonderful moments we have shared through the years (our wedding day, Ryan’s graduation from the police academy, the birth of our babies) were always a little bittersweet knowing Ray wasn’t here to enjoy it with us.
Welcome to Carsland… or as we called it that day, Colesland! I found a picture online of the Carsland landscape and added the text with pictures of Cole throughout the year. I had it blown up at Staples and glued it to a piece of wood for the welcome sign to the party.
“To all who come to this happy place… Welcome” to a Disneyland themed baby shower!!
I threw a baby shower for a fellow Disney loving friend who adopted the cutest little boy.
A very merry unbirthday to you… to you!!
My girls all have summer birthdays. I had promised them a party but the summer kept us so busy that a party never happened. After feeling really guilty, I came up with a great idea! I’d throw an unbirthday party so it wouldn’t feel as weird being so late. I had all of their friends come with character inspired fashions (not a literal costume, just clothes that are reminiscent of a particular character),
“Sometimes the smallest things, take up the most room in your heart.” – Winnie the Pooh
And a new baby most certainly finds a way to steal your heart! This baby shower was for a young lady who I’ve known since she was a girl. She was having her first baby and the nursery was going to be vintage Winnie the Pooh. I thought that would make a great baby shower theme!
