but what does everyone have planned for LOs 1st Bday? Are you doing something big? Small? Theme? Smash cake?
I think that we are totally on the same wavelength.... not only was I thinking about posting about the first birthday, I also was wondering about DITLO! Hahah! Great minds... so they say...
We are not sure yet about Logan's 1st Bday. What I do know is that we are not going to have anything big. We are going to be moving to a new house in July (we are building a home in a much better school district than we live now- thinking ahead) and will probably be broke around the time of his big day! LOL! Seriously tho, I think that we will just have some close family over and have a cake- just keep it simple. I would like a small cake for Logan tho, I think those are too funny!
DH and I are pretty laid back folks, so I would imagine that Logan's first Bday would be pretty laid-back, as well...
We'll probably just have family over and have a nice cake (Colin will NOT be allowed to smash it!)
We did the same thing with DD, but her b-day is in November, which meant that 20 people crammed into my tiny house. Luckily this time we can have the party outside (weather permitting, of course).
I've already decided that I want a fire engine truck for the cake...not sure why, but that's what I've decided!
We don't live close to any family, but we are going to have a couple friends visiting over Sully's birthday. We will definitely have to do it somewhere because our apartment is way too small to have people over. I'm thinking at a park with a splash pad.
lol yep I've been thinking about it. We are going to spend a week at my mom's house, which is right by the ocean, and do her party there with just family (though, my family is enormous so that doesn't really mean a small party!)
One of my little sisters is an amazing baker, and she's going to make Clara a pink monkey cake So I guess that's the theme! And Clara will definitely have her own mini-cake to smash!
I'm quite torn because Alice's birthday is 2 weeks (and 1 day!) after my son's brithday, and my poor husband's birthday is right in the middle. I can't do parties for both kids! And I don't think my husband will ever have a party for himself ever again! So I think I might do a joint one focusing on Alice this year. We don't have any family here, so I'll just invite my friends who all have kids the same age as my son and various aged babies! I'm kind of leaning towards a teddy bear picnic. But who knows!
I was thinking of having it at my parents- they have a huge pool, although the worrier in me, thinking of alot of friends kiddos and a pool- that just worries me about someone getting hurt. I might have to limit the amount of guests. But I also want to take him to the LA zoo or maybe the Santa Barbara zoo- depending on if its 110 out or 90. I cant think of a theme I love, thinking of animals since tommy loves anything furry. I was just going to give him a vanilla cupcake for a smash cake, I am not big on introducing "junk" food into his normal everyday life, but I want him to celebrate a tad. We shall see what the scoop is as it gets closer, since everything is up in the air already. Might be a throw together kinda deal.
