Penguins, Puffles + Pickles {Club Penguin for Gavin}

I usually write boring, yet hilarious,  long winded, over share-y novellas when I post, but not today.
I cannot find the right combination of letters and words to type to relay how much I love this little boy. There are no words to adequately describe my love for this child and there is no written way for me to convey it.
My Sweet Chimp has endured so much these past few months. He is our Hero. Stronger than I could ever be. I could never live without him. Ever.

He wanted a Club Penguin + Puffles Birthday Party. His favorite Puffle in the universe is the Orange One. I never liked the color Orange. I love Orange in a different way now and I always will. Orange is the color of heroism, love and strength to me now.

Orange Puffles have wacky personalities~ They love to play with cardboard boxes and green hula hoops. Their fave foods are cookies and white socks with a cherry on top.

The weather was unbelievably beautiful for a NY April day. I decided last minute to rent a bouncy house and snow cone machine. And he loved the snow cone idea so much that I changed half of the party ideas at the last minute to add in snow cone cuteness. I decorated with a lot of white and iridescence to give that chilly, snowy vibe. Basic, but beautiful.

And the boy loves pickles. Really loves them.

It was a perfect day, maybe not picture perfect, but it was Penguin/Puffle/Pickle Perfect. He was surrounded by those that love him. He was beaming. He was so happy.

Our beautiful, brave boy is 9.  He is sunny, funny and our pickle loving Hero.

I hope you enjoy the pics. I hope you can find some icy inspiration.

Orange is the new purple.

That's him in the distance, by the road, looking down the hill to see if any guests are coming. Today will be emotional and beautiful. Happy Birthday Sweet Chimp.

One of the most charming and beautiful features of Club Penguin is that you can be anything you want to be~if you dream of being a pizza maker, a disco dancer, a Sensei or an astronaut~anything is possible. 
My boy loves these little penguins, their kooky costumes and decked out igloos. He loves the dance parties and secret events.
His imagination is fueled. He can live in that tiny world whenever he wants.
If you can dream it, you can be it. What a lesson for all of us.

Make a Wish  Believe in Magic.

So many amazing details momma! The best part is how you can see on their faces how much fun they were having! I hope G had the best day ever. He certainly deserves it. <3

For what it's worth, I've never met you and I can feel the love you have for your boy, just looking at the loving details of this party. I love how much attention you pay to the small things that he loves; the small things that make him happy. How loved he must feel, to know is mama 'sees' him, really sees and appreciates him, and all the things that make him happy, the way you do.
