I Need Ideas
Teagan turns... *gulp*... FOUR in March. We had a party at our house when she turned 1. An "open house" with a cake and party food and a long invite list. We had a quieter celebration when she turned 2. Grandma came and we spent the day painting a giant cardboard box to create a play house. Grandma and Uncle Daniel came to visit when she turned 3. We ate at her favorite restaurants, Daddy baked her a special cake... We celebrated her last day of being 2 as well as her first day of being 3. What to do for turning FOUR? She doesn't really have a social group yet. We have some friends at church. The kids at daycare are all younger than she is. I'm thinking that we'll stick with the family focused celebrations this year. And next year, when she turns 5, will be her first friend party. Because she'll have friends from preschool, she'll be more involved at church... Care to share memories of your kids' 4th birthday parties? Any great ideas? She's really into the Imagination Movers. And Tinkerbell. Maybe a fairy party? I dunno. SIDEBAR: Totally off topic. Zach had his well baby 15 month check up last week. He's healthy as a horse, of course. He thought it was great fun that he was hanging out in nothing but a diaper so he was really cracking us up and showing off. He weighs 27 pounds and is 33 inches long. Hitting all his milestones and such. We go back at the end of April for his 18 month well baby check. Links are to the message board I had started back when I was first pregnant in 2004. If you really are bored and have way too much time on your hands and are so infatuated with me that you want to know a zillion bits of info about me and my family, feel free to explore. I gave up the message board for this blog... Lynn Freeman, a regular commenter here, was on that message board (we met through an online Atkins community a long time ago).
