Three of our kids' birthdays are 8 days apart. Aiden's and Isabella's birthdays are on June 30th and Connor's is on July 7th. It isn't possible for us to do a birthday party every year for all three kids. So we've decided to alternate. We'll celebrate the twins' birthday with a big party one year and then the next year Connor will get a big party. I didn't have birthday parties growing up and I turned out just fine, so I'm sure my kids will not suffer. I know some people don't believe in doing parties at all and I'm okay with that too, but this is what works for our family. I enjoy planning parties, so it's as fun for me as it is for the kids.
It's Connor's year to have a big party, so for the twins' birthday we only invited our immediate family. We didn't have a theme, decorations, or invitations. The only special things I did were put up a Happy Birthday Banner, bought $2 party hats, and got a bouquet of balloons for them. Super low key.
I ordered cakes from Nothing Bundt Cakes and they were SO good. They came with the hats and flowers decorated on there and I thought they ended up looking so adorable!
On Saturday, June 29th we all got together to celebrate their SECOND BIRTHDAY. WHOA!
These adorable 2nd Birthday Cupcake Shirts were handmade by Grandma.
The kids were SO excited before everyone got here.
I had to include this one below because I thought it was pretty cute. Aunt Katie and Uncle Denny eating ribs!
