Saturday we celebrated Lillian and Claire's 3rd birthday with family and friends. Several months ago when the girls started talking nonstop about their birthday, I asked them what type of party they wanted. Together they decided they wanted a yellow party with balloons hanging from the ceiling. Well, we had some yellow, but I also added a bunch of other colors to make a rainbow party. Oh and we also had the balloons, just as they wanted.
Last year I stressed myself out and didn't get a head start on any of the party projects I wanted to get done and making all the food perfect. Well, there was a ton of left over food because not many people at the treats and I ran out of time and energy to get everything done I wanted to. I decided this year there was going to be a lot less stressful for me. I started the printing and cutting of the banner and other items well over a month ago, as well as, use a box mix for the cupcakes instead of an over the top by scratch recipe like last year. Also, instead of making all of the food, I made a fruit tray and veggie tray, but we ordered pizzas and they seemed to be a hit.
A fun surprise when you bite into the cupcakes.
Thank you again to everyone who was able to make it, Grandma Pattie and Grandpa Jim, Aunt Maggie and Uncle Baris, Kylie, Kelly, Josh and Hudson, Rachel and Olivia, Jennie, Brett and Sammie.
