Flashback Friday~ YGG 2nd Birthday bash!

    Alrighty! It's finally Flashback Friday time!! This will surely be my favorite FF post thus far. We are Flashing back to last October, Jax's 2nd Birthday party (AKA Jax's Yo Gabba Gabba Extravaganza!!)! I started planning for this party months in advance. Since he was in love w/ the whole YGG gang, the theme was a no brainer. As you will see I handmade (with lots of mommy love) most all his decorations. There is actually an entire YGG fan website Gabba Friends  filled w/ everything YGG... ideas, printables, EVERYTHING to help you plan the perfect YGG party. Along with that & I was ready to jump aboard the crazy train of planning my babe's big day. I was thrilled with how it all turned out, thanks to my sweet SWEET family who helped a bunch. Also my honey for putting up w/ how crazy I became in the process. It was all worth it to see Jaxy's face light up! I hope the Transformer's party I'm putting together now will live up to this one! 
Made by...
 the one,
the only....
(also, most all the b-day photos are courtesy of Gma's mad camera skills)

Adorable Cardboard Characters, on the mantel, were bought off Etsy.
I made his birthday banner.
I LOVED how it turned out!

Here's the Birthday boy! How great is his Plex shirt?!
I made everyone YGG shirst,
They were just simple iron-ons from

Muno was our celebrity guest!

Gpa & Jax had matching shirts!!

Really simple but CUTE "I am 2 banner!"
(Confession: I cut the YGG characters out of napkins, & glued them on.
No one knew but this girl !)

Ok. I actually think I'm kinda cool for doing this lil ditty here!!
It's the magical YGG tv from the show, with SPECIAL guest star Jax!
YGG cut-outs were again from napkins!
Awww. He's holding Foofa's hand!

Waiting for his pals...
Yay... cousin Noah has arrived!

A Brobee unicorn!
The birthday boy had to make a wardrobe change

Cool shirt daddy!
Now he & Da are Muno twins!

Check out this Muno/Brobee blanket
 Auntie K MADE for her boy!
He still LOVES it.
This is the day the green froggy boots made there 1st appearance.

The cake was pretty fantastic.
All the YGG peeps dannced.
Notice that's a crayon he's holding,
not a fork!
Yep. He took his 1st bite of 2 year old B-day cake,
with a brown crayola crayon!
You bet I saved this crayon!

Man, I love Chucks.
So many lovely memories were made in those little high-tops.
He's on to a green pair now!
This was a wonderful birthday for my then just turned 2 year old.
We will be celebrating his 3rd in just over a week.
I don't now where this year has gone,
But I still can't believe I'm the lucky mama
that gets to share her days w/ this little dude.

I can't wait to celebrate your 3rd Birthday monkey-man.
We will have so much fun,
I can promise you that.


Linking up with Jen's Flashback Friday,

Melanie, that is AMAZING!!! I don't think I've ever put that much time and loving attention to detail into ANYTHING. What a fabulous b-day.

I forgot that you were posting this and I'd be lying if I didn't say that I was excited when it popped up on my dashboard. You did an amazing job. Aubrey's 1st wasn't as elaborate but I did make the banner and it took me forever because I kept changing my mind. I love the t-shirts and the little birthday poster starring Jax.

Wow, you did such a great job! Yo Gabba Gabba is so huge in kiddy culture. My nieces and nephews love it too. Honestly, the creatures creep me out a bit but hey, I'm just not as tough as some two year olds are. ;-)
