While the girls don’t have friend birthday parties every year – we always have birthday parties with our families. As the first born, Norah has had several but (other than first birthdays) she is the only one. Lucy has been asking to have a party for several months now, so we decided to have a birthday party for her this year. I threw out some theme ideas – tea party, Pinkalicious, camping, etc. She didn’t like any of those ideas – I should have known she already had her own idea. Lucy wanted a rainbow party. At first I wasn’t sure how I would make that work – but after some encouragement from facebook friends and some ideas on Pinterest, I knew a rainbow party could be really fun. The only problem – I couldn’t do all the cute ideas – which ones do I try to recreate. I started by asking my friend, Sara, to do the birthday invitation. She did a great job!! (Seriously, people, if you need birthday invites, Christmas cards, birth announcements, etc, check out her great designs!!!)
While this week was CRAZY with soccer and Boot Camp Challenge and this weekend is CRAZY with more soccer and more Boot Camp Challenge, I knew today was the best day to fit in her party. The girls seemed to enjoy themselves and Lucy was THRILLED to finally have a friend party!! Her actual birthday is Tuesday – I will post more about Lucy then!!
