Birthdays

Can we start posting birthday plans, stories and especially pictures?!!!!! I really want to see our babies as they hit the 1-year-old mark (with or without cake faces Wink ). Since this board is May - August, we should have some birthdays already, right?

Feel free to start new threads if you have a lot to share. Otherwise, maybe post what your birthday plans are on this thread....

I'm a major procrastinator and will probably start planning the week before her birthday (Aug 29th). Lol

YES!!! I love that idea. I'm doing Hippos --- Hip-Hippo Horray!!! It's pinks and purples and touch of green with some balloons going to be blue and yellow. I am very excitied about it. This is the theme we're going with: http://www.birthdayexpress.com/Hippo-Pink-1st-Birthday-Party-Supplies/79615/PartyKitDetail.aspx

I found an outfit from Carters that has a hippo on it, it's blue/green, but it's cute and it works...so i got that for after her cake for her to wear. Then i plan on making her a birthday outfit, where i will sew a hippo that i make on a shirt and then i will make a tutu.....i'm still figuring out those details...i might just have someone do it for me....but, we'll see. I'm making a HAPPY BIRTHDAY sign myself (the banner kind) to hang up and i'm doing a wall of her 1st....like first smile, haircut(yes, she's had two already!!), first holidays, tooth, etc.
I'm also using the hippo from the create a critter cricut..... so that hippo will be the hippo i use for her shirt i make out of fabric, then i'll be making cupcakes, so i'll make cupcake toppers with that as well. I'll take some pics once things start getting put together....

I love birthdays!

I think I am going to do "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" theme. I know I'm going to throw the part on his actual bday in the middle of the week so I can avoid most of my family actually coming (I don't like most of my family, lol), but then DH and his baby friends will still be there...

I will get him a birthday outfit. Make cupcakes, or maybe order them if I'm too lazy, but I've seen some cute things on pinterest. And we only have one bakery that does gluten-free, so yeah, we'll see.

He's only barely 9 mos but I'm totally stoked!

I'm going to start planning Ava's birthday party this week. I'm stressing because I don't know where to throw it. We live in an apartment, so a lot of people is not exactly ideal. My parents are divorced, so neither will want to go over to others house. I was thinking about a park with a lake on the mountain around here, but that doesn't really work with Ava eating her cake! It will be difficult to clean her.

Natalie will have 2 parties. It is just how things worked out because the family will be here for Andrea's first dance performance on Saturday, then we will do a friend party on Sunday.

The BBQ at my house will be ABC theme, with ABC's hanging up, t-shirts with letters on them for the kids, a "block" cake, plush alphabet magnets that I've made, alphabet cookies, etc. She will do her big cake eating at this party. I have a themed craft and more.

The party will be at my work (bounce house facility) and the them is "Let's have a ball". We will have cake balls, beach balls as gifts, jars of gumballs, etc. Food is pizza and the big deal is the bounce houses, with one small one for just the crawlers.

well, my LO is at the very beginning of the dates this board covers. He turned 1 on April 26th. I'll see if I can find a pic.
here he is after some chocolate cake

we didn't do a theme or a party, just some cake with family and a couple gifts.
