Owen's 5th birthday party was scheduled for the week we planned to move to another city. But his favorite thing in the world (right now) is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and he was set on that as a birthday party for at least six months before the party. So we had to bump things up two weeks.
First this was going to be a little playdate for seven pre-K girls to celebrate the end of the school year. Then all of sudden I had about 14 girls coming so I decided to make it an ART PARTY! My 5 year-old had been asking me to do an art party forever! (easy for me..I used to teach art!)
Dylan's second birthday party was a labor of love. The theme was Rainbows on Sesame Street. He adores every character on Sesame Street, so we tried to accomodate. My oldest had an Elmo second birthday party. But we realized after the fact we missed a great opportunity. We have about seven million Sesame Street items that could have been used to supplement our decorations. So we've been waiting 2 1/2 years for this party!
