Happy first birthday to our star, Gwendolyn!

I tried to think of several different themes for Gwendolyn's birthday, but I couldn't settle on one. I liked stars, but I wanted to have a little bit more leeway (I wasn't sure if I could do a whole just-stars party) so I expanded it to be about space.

We had a nice spread of food, but kept it simple. Lots of star-puffs, fruit, veggie sticks, veggies, and chick-fil-a nuggets. :)

I made the cakes and cookies.

The little birthday girl had a fun time, and we loved celebrating her!

Happy first birthday to our little star!!

A Spiderman-PumpItUp-4th Birthday Party

Latham chose to have his birthday party at PumpItUp (a local inflatable jumping place, very popular with his age group) this year. A ton of his friends showed up, and they jumped until they could jump no more. The little kids (like Gwendolyn) played in the ball pit. The parents and grandparents tried some of the wild activities, but also just chatted, content that our kids were getting some energy out.

Here's Latham's whole class squished into a booth.
After the jumping, we went into the party room and had pizza and fruit and snacks...and cupcakes, of course. There wasn't a huge theme for his party, but every time I would ask what he wanted, he would say "Spiderman." Hence, the cupcakes...

 Latham loved having everyone sing "Happy Birthday" to him.

It was a great birthday!  :) Happy birthday to my big four-year-old!!
