Nice work, babe. The beard man’s birthday is just a few days before Christmas and it really makes it hard to come up with extra gift ideas for him…but, I still try to make it a special day by inviting all of his family over for his favorite homemade dinner/cake. I think LOTS of people make parties fun (if it’s an adult party :))
Once my daughter is a little older (her first birthday is January 19th) I’ll let her decide if she wants to celebrate it on her birthday or on her 6 month Birthday (July 19th). Regardless we will celebrate her birthday as a family on January 19th, but as far as parties go and getting lost in the shuffle of the holidays, I will let her decide that one. And no the whole class will not be invited! 🙂

You read my mind with this post! My oldest turns 6 on December 19th, and we are doing his 1st big “friends” party at the skating rink. My husband and I were just going back and forth last night on who to invite, and how to get the invitations to the kids at school. He is in kindergarten, so I don’t know all of his friends yet!
It is hard having his birthday so close to Christmas, but you’re right; that’s my fault, not his! Thanks for the ideas.

Great ideas!!! I’ll have to send this link to my sister! My nephew is two days before Christmas, and one of my brothers – 2 days after Christmas!
Nichols Family – I know what you’re saying…not knowing your kids friends yet. I’m in the same boat. But, you have enough time to track down their phone numbers and/or addresses. Often times the PTA puts together a school phone number directory. Or, your child could ask for their phone numbers. Call their moms and find a way to get an invitation delivered to them. Besides, their moms would love to talk to you anyway…especially if they are going to be trusting you to care for their child for a couple hours.
Good luck! We would love to hear what you come up with for the party!

I really loved this post. That is such a cute idea to make blankets for a sleepover party. I’ll have to remember that as my kids get older and I think I can handle it:) So many cute ideas.
