“I remember when the candle shop burned down. Everyone stood around singing ‘Happy Birthday.'”~Steven Wright
My children’s birthdays are within two weeks of each other, which means combined party in my books. Also, I find that it is also quite close to Easter, so I have cheekily combined two birthdays and Easter into one action packed, family day for my little lovelies. He’s 4, she’s 2. They don’t ask for much. In the future I am sure I will have to separate all of these events, but for now I’m rolling it into one.
Easter egg hunt, big lunch, birthday cakes, presents, running, screaming, laughing, painting, crying- THE WORKS.
And with every awesome party, there is ofcourse the aftermath: mess on the deck, left over cake(s), chocolate eggs, non-dairy-non-soy-no-lactose chocolate eggs, party decorations strewn from one end of the house to another, overly tired children who ask why all their cousins can’t be at their house going nuts everyday of the week…you know, post party blues.
