Since You Only Turn Six Once

Feb 5, 2013
Like most things that happened last year, Macey's 5th birthday wasn't quite as exciting or fun as I would of liked it to be due to the lovely nausea of pregnancy. This year we made up for it.

It began with Macey having her first real friend birthday party. Lucky for me I decided to do it at Creativity Art Studio, since we were unexpectedly gone for over a week right before her birthday. It was heaven not having to clean and then have my house destroyed by a group of 5 and 6 year olds.

She couldn't of been happier to go to school on her birthday and loved getting to wear a crown all day. Plus, we brought in Fun Dips to share with her class.

After school we met Maddy and Libby at Chuck E Cheese.

She also had Hip-Hop that day and since we can't make homemade treats for school, she really wanted to make marshmallow pops for her dance friends. I obliged, since all I had to do was melt the chocolate for her.

The day then ended with her favorite meal of pancakes, opening presents and a carousel cake with rainbow sherbet ice cream cones.

All in all I'd say it was a good day. Or as Macey said, "That was the best, best, best, best, bestest birthday ever!" Love Birthdays and this girl.

Current Favorites:
Movie: Aladdin
Food: Donuts
Thing to do: Dance
Toy: Zhu Zhu Pets
Song: "So What" by Pink
Book:Princess books or My Father's Dragon
Thing to do at school: Have centers

We had Miles' 3rd birthday party this weekend. I wanted to do a Jake and the Neverland Pirates party or perhaps Toy Story, but MIles has always been a child that knows exactly what he wants, so T-Rex it was.

He wanted to invite ALL of macey's friends. We ended up settling on 2 of Macey's friends (who are his friends too) and then 2 friends his age. But, can I just say Macey and I are lucky we got to attend, there was a few days there where he said that no girls were allowed. I was getting worried.

As Miles is very particular on what he wants, I made sure to run all my ideas through him. I showed him some dinosaur hats and feet I wanted to make. His response, "no Dinosaur feet, T-Rex feet! No dinosaur hats, T-Rex hats!" I learned pretty quickly this was going to strictly be a T-Rex party, no other dinosaurs allowed.

Here is Tajen modeling the hats and T-Rex feet, since my children were uncooperative in this area.

I used this party as my inspiration and of course changed everything from "dinosaur" to "T-Rex" to please the birthday boy. And Paul used his awesome skills to make me this invitation:

Miles knew exactly what he wanted for his cake: it had to be from target, be chocolate and of course have a t-rex on top. Luckily Target never disappoints.

Some of the decor:

Like Macey's 3rd birthday we had a coloring table, but this time Miles and I also searched through all our books for the dinosaur ones and this proved to be the most popular activity.

The games consisted of a T-Rex egg hunt, where the eggs were filled with candy and baby dinosaurs.

A pull string piƱata. This almost didn't happen, as all we could find was a triceratops, which of course wasn't going to work. Luckily Miles did not realize that the one he picked was actually a dragon. :)

and the older kids did an egg race while Miles and his friend ate all their candy.

He loved being the center of attention and his favorite present, a box of lucky charms, of course. His friends know him all too well.

Miles even gave me a hug part way through the party and said, "Thanks for my T-Rex Party Mama!" That is exactly why I love throwing parties.

Now it's only a few months until I get to do a party for this girl!

He definitely knows what he likes. I love that he thanked you for his T-Rex party. Looked like a super fun party. Happy 3rd Birthday Miles!
Super cute! Happy birthday Miles:)
You are the best party thrower! I wish I had that gift... so do not. I should call you to get ideas for party games for Hazel. Those feet are adorable.
You throw the best parties! I love how Miles knew exactly what he wanted for his party. The crayons turned out cute.
