SO CUTE! did he get what was going on? How was Brock with the cake?? pictures? Happy bday!
That is wonderful! I love the comment about the "plastic years". So very true!
We will be doing her party next Saturday... I am getting sorta nervous and am beginnning to think I was out of my mind by inviting so many people! haha... Were there kids at his party? I am goiing to end up here with probably 20 kids and I have no idea what toddlers & school age kiddos do at parties :/ Any suggestions will be well received :)
Jem-He didn't really get what was going on! He loved the paper! He wasn't scared of all the people, which I was nervous about! He loved the cake, but he didn't get too messy! He had to get his clothes changed, but he was pretty easy to clean up!
Ovaz-There were about 8 kids at the party. We had so many toys that they found, so they were pretty intrigued by those! Then when present opening started, they were all around us, which was cute. A girl I work with had "pin the hat on Griffin" for her son's first birthday party, and she made up some other kid games. The kids at Brock's party were 3 and up, and I think they just loved seeing little kid toys again! We were going to do party bags for the kids, but I figured once Brock can enjoy one, then we'll do it!
I was very nervous yesterday morning, but it all worked out! It was lots of fun! We moved quickly from lunch to cake to presents. I wanted Brock to enjoy all parts of his party without being to cranky and tired!
Good luck with all the birthday parties! Can't wait to hear about them and see pictures!
I posted some pictures from the party!
Love the pics! Looks like you guys had a good time.
Ovaz - Depending on the ages of the kids, maybe you could have a "coloring contest". Have everyone draw a picture of their favorite part of the party. Have little goodie bag for all of them as a "prize". Keep the pics, put them in some sort of scrapbook type book as a memory of the party day. Something to keep them busy as well as giving you something to remember the kiddie guests by in a few years. :)
