When planning the kids’ birthday party we wanted something that would represent what they were into right now. Their two favorite books have been Rainbow Rob and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. Thinking that Chicka Chicka Boom Boom would be a lot easier to decorate, we went with it. I don’t have the invitation on this computer but the invite said:
A told B and B told C
Lindy and Will are Turning 3!!
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
How’d it happen so soon?
If I say so myself, everything turned out so cute. My mom and I made a coconut tree cake out of two different cakes and we took our first spin at decorating a cake with the star tip. All in all it turned out well. I had fun at the kids’ party, I sure hope the kids did!
Thankfully we had tables set up inside because it rained most of the day. We used our empty dining room as the party headquarters. I guess it worked out that our new dining room furniture hasn’t been delivered yet. We had a little alphabet hunt for the kids. Rebecca, the birthday girl from last weekend. Lindy playing with Berkley.Aunt Anna and Lindy Mimo and WillAunt Joan and Uncle CurtisJanice! Ed and Aunt Jamie GrandBob and Molly Janice, Suzette and my mom.The spread. Hand-stamped plates! Alphabet cookies and chocolate 3’s! Frozen raspberry 3’s for raspberry lemonade. We also had regular ice in the shape of 3’s. Waiting for cake! When we started singing to Lindy she starting waving her arms all around. It was so funny! Lindy was apparently worn out when it came time to open presents. She opened about 2 and then lost all interest in them. The kids got new Wake Forest bag chairs that are so cute! We got the kids a basketball goal and Will LOVES it! The party really got started when I made everyone wear coconuts and pose for pictures. Strangely enough, all but 2 people did it. Janice had left before I got everyone else. She got lucky! Wendy and Brett Anna and Riley Carrie and RebeccaUncle Ed wasn’t happy about wearing coconuts! Drew’s coconuts were sagging a bit! Nana and Suzette Even Lindy and Will wore them! Our family at the end of the party. Fun was had by all. We wish Adam could be here to be a part of his 3rd birthday party and be in our family pictures. He is never far from our minds.
