Getting Ready for a Birthday Party......

I swear-I love my kid but will be soooo glad when he outgrows having to have a big birthday party each year LOL. It is so hard to do during the holidays. And his birthday is right in the middle of them all--Dec 12th. It's hard because down South in the Winter time,you never know what kind of weather you'll get-our forecast (as of today) says it will be chilly,but sunny and it will warm slightly in the afternoon. In years past,we have had ice,snow,tornadoes,rain,warm weather-warm enough to still wear shorts/capris in December warm. It's hard because sometimes,people are busy with other engagements this time of year. It's hard because I have to convince the "anti-social" husband that it'll be OK to have a bunch of people over for a few hours of birthday fun LOL. He tends to stress about everything being PERFECT (meaning the house being clean). Last year,my son had a BOWLING party-it was a big hit. I even asked if he wanted to do that this year-NOPE! LOL And in our town,the activities offered for kids his age is limited. So it's going to be family/friends at our house. I'm making "happy husband chili" and having a few "finger-food" type snacks and ice cream cakes. I should be putting the goodie bags together for the kids,but here I sit,sharing my life with the world. LOL

Yeah, I think after the first week of the month of December, it's hard to balance birthdays and holidays. Definitely a challenge, but I know you're up to it! Here's hoping he has a wonderful party. :)

Had a great time at Zach's party! I know what you mean... since I also have the COOLEST BIRTHDAY EVER, I grew up having people not able to come to my parties because there was so much else going on. Apparently, I didn't get the message because I went on to have two December babies. lol
