I am in definite need of some cheering up today so I started looking at the pictures from the kids past birthday parties. They make me happy as it is one of my favorite things to do as a mom. Here are some pictures to make me feel better (and makes me excited for the parties this year!).
Our son's first birthday party we decided to do a construction theme, mainly because I saw a cake I loved and we have access to a lot of stuff to go with it.
The picture on the invite...
Next up was my girl's 3rd birthday party. She told me she wanted a pink, blue, and Cinderella party. Uhh, ok? I could do that. Thanks to Target and the Internet (how did I ever live without Google Images?) I think I pulled it off! This was held in my parent's back yard.
The table and cake...
Our guest, Princess Amerah, who the girls were completely mesmerized by came to tell a story and sing some songs. I was a little worried about this but it was so worth the money I spent (I asked her to do a half hour session instead of her usual hour minimum, which I'm so glad she was willing!). I highly recommend her.
I had no idea these rock candy suckers would be the hit of the party...they were of course pink and blue.
She keeps saying she wants a pink and blue birthday this year. Wish me luck on convincing her it's time for something different!
