Ummm. no, I am in complete denial and refuse to believe my itty bitty baby is turning FOUR!! NO WAY!!

(today in the car he asked me why he was still three, he ate his dinner and was getting bigger so shouldn't he be four yet? )

LOL we are already done with that...mine is 4! And she asked me yesterday if she would be 5 when she starts Pre-K in two weeks. She is moving WAY too fast! ;-P

I am going to try to get some pics up on FB soon. The theme was neon animal print and just bright colors. We had a bounce house/water slide at our house that the kids LOVED. Dali and I got her a Barbie Scooter, some Disney Princess dress-up shoes, some toys for the pool/bath, and some new music for the car.

Anyone started planning yet? Ava has been in full planning mode for almost a year. She wants a princess party and makes sure she points out all things princess. "Remember those plates for my bithday, Mom. I want this cake, Mom. Take a picture of these invitations." She is out of control! lol!

What theme are you going with? I think if I do anything but princess she'll move out. Wink

What is your LO into these days? Disney Princesses. Oh, man is she obesssed! For Christmas my SIL gave her some Disney princess figurines. She had never even seen a princess movie and the obsession took off.

Do you know what you are getting your LO? thankfully princesses are everywhere. And anything princess makes her happy. I think we'll get her this castle digital clock thing that tells princess stories and some other princess toys. A few books and other toys too.

Anyone started planning yet? not too much yet.

What theme are you going with? She has been saying since her last birthday that this year she wants a "flower birthday" not exactly sure what she means by that so I might take her to the party store and see what she comes up with!! Otherwise I thought about Barbie, Disney Princesses or just bright colors

What is your LO into these days? Barbie and Disney Princesses

Do you know what you are getting your LO? Not sure what we are getting her yet. I have a few little things in my gift closet but not sure what will be for birthday or what I'll save for Christmas. Oh! I take that back! I do have a Tag reader in the closet for her. I got it on sale a few months ago and have been picking up books for it at OUAC and ones on sale too.

Anyone started planning yet? Yes! I have almost all of the supplies purchased. I started making their banners. I haven't thought about food yet (but I think I have time?!).

What theme are you going with? We are combining Miles' birthday with Vivi's 1st birthday since they're only about 2 weeks apart. We're doing a Princess & Pirate theme. Miles wants Pirates...and I figured Princess kind of goes along with Pirates.

What is your LO into these days? Thomas the Train (but that was the theme last year!)

Do you know what you are getting your LO? Not really. There are some train sets he wants to go along w/his set but I would like to branch out a bit and get him some "other" new toys. My grandparents have a Marbleworks at their house that he LOVES - so might get him 1 of those. But...not sure I want marbles in the house w/Vivi at this age. Probably some new books. Who knows?!

Anyone started planning yet? My girls birthdays are also two weeks apart, so they will share their party again. I think we will do it on October 27th. I asked a friend to make the cupcakes. I checked on the price of a bounce house. I have a board on pinterst for it.

What theme are you going with? Candyland. Lyla loves the game. We are going to do it more about colors than candy though.

What is your LO into these days? she has a very vivid imagination, and is always using it. She loves her dollhouse, and pretending she is different animals.

Do you know what you are getting your LO? I really don't want more toys in the house. She has been begging for a Barbie toy that has puppies and water slides, and has been reminding me that is what she wants for her birthday. I have thought about getting them a smaller outdoor trampoline.

Anyone started planning yet? A little, I think this year we're not inviting as many people, it's just way too crowded and the house is a mess from being under renovations.

What theme are you going with? Jack loves Curious George and still loves Thomas, so one of those I think

What is your LO into these days? He is really into trying to tell time and pretends to fix watches lol

Do you know what you are getting your LO? No not yet, but maybe a toy camera, he loves taking pictures with the iphone and ipad so I think he would love something he can run around with and take pics.

My in-laws got a real camera (just a cheaper digital camera) for my niece's birthday the other day...oh my gosh. Miles and her were so funny with it. They were taking pictures of EVERYTHING & now Miles keeps asking me to borrow my camera to take pictures. I let him walk around the house w/my smaller digital camera and he was taking pictures of everything...hilarious.

Wow, you girls are so on top of it! We don't tend to do big parties for the boys, so we'll probably keep it low key. We've tossed around a bunch of ideas for gifts, but he's really into Legos lately, so it'll probably have something to do with that. I can't wait to see your all's party pictures!
