It was such a cute event, I thought it deserved its own blog post, instead of overloading an already overloaded Woody post with his birthday pictures ;)
So, here they are!Hannah was insistent upon throwing her baby a party, and we just couldn't refuse. No really. We tried! But she was quite persistent! She was not subtle with her hints. Every time she saw an ad or a birthday party catalog in the mail, she would get SO EXCITED! She would start making her list of what she needed for Woody's party. The excitement over Woody's upcoming birthday was almost too much for Hannah! She seriously believed his birthday was coming, and would not rest until we planned the big event.
We figured it was only fair that Woody gets a birthday party, too. After all, he is very much a part of this family :) We picked a date, sent out e-vites to the A-List party peeps (Granny and Papa), and Hannah scoured the birthday party catalogs and Target party aisles for weeks looking for ideas for decorations. She insisted over and over again that Woody would love a Princess theme party. So, princess party hats, plates, cups, pink balloons, etc. donned our dining room table. Hannah helped me bake a cake, complete with pink frinkles. I must say, it was all really fun! :) Hannah did all the planning, all I had to do was help cook, bake, and set the table.
The party was a success, and Woody was very excited about all the attention. He didn't seem to notice that Hannah unwrapped his presents for him or that she has been playing with them ever since ;) He's such a good sport.
Now, we are a little scared about what we might have started though. . .Hannah woke up the next morning and exclaimed "Guess what? It's Jessie's birthday today! Let's have a party!"
Um. . .I am all for making reasons to eat cake and use fun paper plates and napkins. . .but this is going to be incredibly expensive if EVERY doll and toy gets a birthday party. . . Yikes!
Hannah wanted to bake pink "frinkles" into the batter :)
(no band-aids in the cake, don't worry)
She did the cake decorating (except for the beautiful lettering. . .that was all me. I know, you are shocked! It looks like a professional did it! LOL)
All set! She set most of the table all by herself :)
Even the dog was excited. . .can't you tell? She is thrilled to be wearing a cool hat!
The cat. . .well, he is just not a hat guy.
Unfortunately, we ran out of booster seats. These guys were not too happy about that! They didn't leave a tip.
Woody and Jessie waiting for cake!
Can we sing now?
Look Woody! I. . .er. . .I mean, YOU got a princess doll!
Singing Happy Birthday
There's a million things I can say about this photo. . .but it is just too funny/cute :)
VIDEO: Hannah very EXCITED for Woody's party to start when Granny and Papa arrived :)
*Please, don't mind the passenger van seat sitting in our entryway! This was right after we got the new van, and we took out the front seat for Matt** LOL The seat is now stored out of sight.
