I’m completely delayed in posting about the girls’ birthdays. Their Circus Party felt like we had a wedding at our house (not in being elaborate, but more in the man hours it took everyone to put it all together!) I’m hoping to get the party posted soon. Just waiting on a few more photos and I promise to share!!
So yes, the girls all shared the big party, and it will be our last for a little while (meaning, not another one until a milestone birthday, NOT that we are pregnant or have ANY plans to be…just to be clear…). We wanted to be sure each Little had their 1st Birthday Party (which the other siblings by default were able to join as well), but now the 1st Birthday parties are complete.
However, even though they all shared a party, we like to celebrate each Little on their actual birthday…you know, show them some extra special attention on their birthday day.
Having said that, because Addie’s birthday fell 2 days after the party and we had JUST celebrated what felt like a million birthdays, we did not do anything extra for her this year. In her mind, the circus party WAS her special day…and there will still plenty of balloons left in the house…so we went with that.
For Piper, we did have balloons over her crib to wake her up along with a special breakfast with Grandpa.Â I have a few photos, but OF COURSE my big camera battery was dead that morning!
So Hayden is really the only one that I can share…what I REALLY LOVE about these photos and about her birthday, is how truly HAPPY she was. Her smile was so sweet all day!!Â Melt my heart!
As is tradition, she woke up to a rainbow of balloons over her crib.
Then we had all the grandparents come over for lunch. Very simple…I ordered Chik-fil-A since the kids love their nuggets, made a big fruit salad, some lemonade and the kids and I drew all over plastic cups to make “party cups”. I even went so far as to be lazy enough to ask Hubs to pick up a pound cake when he got the balloons in the morning. Sliced that cake up, poured some caramel sauce and M&Ms on top and served it up with ice cream. I think Hay was OK with it all…
