I’ve been busy working on Sadie’s birthday party this Sunday, and I’m definitely getting excited. It’s going to be much smaller than last year, just family and a handful of friends. Since Sadie’s favorite movie is Charlotte’s Web (considering she’s only seen three movies, this isn’t too surprising), I’m doing a sort of Wilbur-Charlotte themed party. Sadie’s not quite old enough to anticipate her party, and usually when we ask her whose birthday is coming up, she’ll say “Mimi” or name one of her cousins. Or one of the pets. But I know for sure she’s going to be thrilled when the party actually happens.
Have I told you about how much this girl loves a party? There have been several times I’ve pulled up in our driveway only to hear, “Noooo…. Partyyyyy” from the back seat. We actually drove around the neighborhood one Saturday, calling people to see if we could come “party” at their house. Luckily we were saved by our dear friends down the street who were more than happy to let Sadie party it up before they headed out for a movie.
So! I’m pumped about the pink pig and spider web cupcakes I’m going to make. And I spent part of last night making black spider webs to spell out Sadie’s name and hang up on the wall.
I’m glad that we’re going low-key this year. There won’t be a ton of other kids for Sadie to share her toys with (she’s still fairly territorial), and I’m planning on making some homemade play dough and having a little play dough activity table set up. Add a few snacks, and that’s it!
The big news will be whether or not Sadie like’s her present from her Dad. If you know Trevor at all, you might be able to guess what’s waiting in the trunk of his car for her… (Mama will try to remain calm, cool and collected about this milestone.)
