Each child must be celebrated. Even when you have a few and life gets in the way it is important to STOP and let each one know how special they are. Yesterday was Harm's day!
We finally celebrated his 3rd birthday (which occurred on the 17th of January)! I was sick during his birthday. There was a lot of other stuff going on so we kept having to push the actual party back. It was worth the wait though.
There was a smaller group of guests than the twins party but that was part of what made it nice. Everything was just very casual and laid back. In fact I didn't take a lot of pictures b/c I was too busy having fun with our guests. Harmon had one his classmates come, many of our friends came with their kids, family of course, and Chris even had a childhood friend come with his family from El Paso. It was just right. Everyone enjoyed the party except for Callum who slept the whole time... he wasn't feeling too good :(
Our food was real simple! It was a sub sandwich buffet w/chips, dips, veggies, and fresh fruit while the kids munched down on PB & Js or PB & Nutella sandwiches. It was great b/c neither Chris and I had to lift a finger. We had crafts but all the kids were having too much fun just playing. Even opening presents was just real fun. Harmon is in Heaven b/c he has sooo many new fun toys (including lots of new Thomas toys... in fact last night he was feeding a new Percy train french fries).
The kids loved the bounce house, pinata, etc. I felt bad b/c it wasn't exactly all Thomas. We got a 50% discount on the Cars bounce house as opposed to the the train one. We never got to El Paso for a Thomas pinata so I bought the cheap Sam's Club one. Chris' friend teased me that it was a "transportation theme". It wasn't my best work as per themes but when it comes to a bunch of small children no one really cared. Everyone had fun and it proved once again that I should just let it fly sometimes!
