Birthday Parties OVER

If you are here for the blog hop click here.

If you saw some of my earlier posts you may have seen some birthday banners.  Well, my sister- Crafty Gator, and I decided to have a combined birthday party for all four of our kids today.  It went VERY well, but I am TIRED!

Each kid picked their own theme. We set up a table for each kid with their theme and they had their own cupcakes that my super talented sister made!  I did the paper crafting and she did the cupcakes... I got LUCKY and had the easy part!!! The themes they picked: Artic Animals, Aliens, Owls, and TV Dinners

We started with a cookout so for the first hour we stopped every 15 minutes and sang Happy Birthday to one of the kids and had them blow out their own candles.  It helped the kids feel like they were having their own party.  Then while people ate they opened gifts one at a time.  I think it went pretty well and we were able to do the entire thing in under 3 hours.  I think it was only 2.5 actually.

I am submitting these over at a new blog Decorate to Celebrate.

Here are some pics:

Wow it looks bare before we added the food :)
