Henry Turns 3!

I am back from a much needed mini vacay with husband. It was long overdue considering we haven't been anywhere alone for fun since before I new I was pregnant with Henry. Now it is time to play catch up and I am gong to start with Henry's Birthday. It was a week and a half ago.



My BABY is THREE!
He is very into Jake and the Neverland Pirates and has been asking for a "PINK JAKE COOKIE CAKE" for about a month. I opted for chocolate icing instead of pink, so he picked pink candles. We kept his birthday party very low key this year and just invited the family over for grilled burgers and chips. It was nice and relaxed. It was nice to just enjoy Henry on his special day and not have a ton of projects to finish up.



I mentioned in a post last week that I got his birthday gift done just in time for his birthday. It was not a hard project, but I needed a nice day so that I could spray paint. I finally got a nice day 3 days before his birthday, and only his nap time to turn a faded second hand Cozy Coupe into a Batmobile. I saw one of these on Pinterest many months ago and knew that the next time I saw one posted for sale I was going to scoop it up and paint one for Henry. I used 2 cans of Krylon Fusion Paint in a black, satin finish and then had a friend make the Batman decals out of vinyl. The decals ended up being WAY too big, so I just traced the logo on the back of the vinyl, painted the front with some yellow acrylic paint that I had on hand (it was midnight the night before H's b-day), and then cut them out. I may do something else later on, but this was the quick fix I needed for the time being.


He was pretty excited, and I must say he looks pretty cool in this thing.

  1. I love the bat mobile! You are so cleaver and talented! You little guy is so cute and the same age that Matthew was when we returned to Dothan years ago! I love that age!

    I'm happy that you and your hubby could get away for a little R&R!

  4. He is too cute! Love the Batmobile. My kids had that car when they were young and it was one of their most used toys. I am sure he will put many miles on it.
    Take Care,

  7. Ha! That's a great idea! I'll have to remember it when my littlest one is old enough for a cozy coupe. And Henry is adorable :) (found you on The Shabby Nest....another all boy homeschooling family here)

  8. That is a fantastic idea. You will probably get more use out of it for longer. Great way to upcycle.
