So now that G will be turning 2 next week (where did the time go??) I thought it time to finally finish my post about his last party before we have another one.
Even though G turned a year old last February, we decided to wait until April to have his party. We had a few reasons for this, one of them being that we wanted him to be a little closer to his developmental year mark. Another was that February is a very busy birthday month for our friends and April was better for being outside.
When we moved into our new house we decided we should have a BBQ get together as a type of house warming after G was born and before I went back to work. Him coming early threw those plans off a bit as our pediatrician recommended we keep G away from other kids until he had all his vaccines and then to be careful after that. So we put it off, thinking we would do it in the fall. Well, that didn’t work out either so I decided that we would just have a big BBQ/Birthday Bash all in one.
So on to the party!
I had started planning G’s party months before… I’m a little overzealous like that. I went with the classic red, black, and yellow Mickey Mouse theme. Of course I left all the actual work until the last minute (I’m an artful procrastinator) but it came out great. The decorations and treats are best shown so here are a few pictures!
We had Mickey goody bags with all sorts of fun things in them like bubbles, a curly straw, stickers, some candy (of course), and a few other goodies. For the babies that came I had found some soft Mickey and Minnie blankie babies. They were so cute! I also made party hats even though most of the kids didn’t wear them. G was not interested in his much at all.
I will leave you now with a few more pictures of the fun!
Hopefully I’ll manage to get pictures up of G’s second party faster… but with Baby Sister coming I can’t promise anything so don’t get your hopes up.
