Our First Big Birthday Party

A few years ago we decided that our kids would have friend birthday parties every 4 years, at 4,8,12 and 16. We also decided that these parties would include the same # of friends as the child is I started to ask J what 4 friends he wanted to invite to his party. He always listed more than 4, in fact he was usually closer to 8 and when it came down to it, I couldn't draw the line. We ended up with ELEVEN 3 and 4 year old friends and cousins It was a lot of kids and it was fun, but I think for B's 4 year old party (and future parties) I will keep it to the smaller number of friends. :)

See how excited my little J is!
We had a Teddy Bear Picnic, first we dined on Teddy Bear shaped sandwiches, fruit and trees from an enchanted forest (see those veggies up in the lower left corner of that picture- those are trees!)

Then we decorated Bear Masks!
Followed by lots of playing at the park.

We then opened lots of amazingly fun presents (I told Ken that J now had an embarrassment of riches, and it's true- WOW! ) and we ate teddy bear shaped cookies!
And finally Little B asked "So when is my Party?" Poor B, no birthday for you for a few more months, and your first party is 2 years away.

Kate, you are a brave brave lady taking on that many 3 year olds! Good job - the party looked like a complete success, and Michaela said she had a great time!
