Party Time

I'm going to take a little break from posting for the weekend because I'm busy planning a shindig for a certain someone who's turning one on Saturday. I'm not going to say who the party is for, but I will say that his initials are L.G. and that I've posted about him before.

Here's the low-down on the party:

Theme: race cars, Dora the Explorer, blue

Place: Our House

Invitees: 30 of our closest family and friends, including 5 one-year-olds. (Yikes! 5 one-year-olds? What was I thinking?)

Weather Forecast: 109 degrees (aka, hotter than hell)

Activities: cake eating, present opening, and baby oogling

Here's hoping for lots of fun and an air conditioning system that doesn't break down. Wish me luck!


Oooh, sitting in water is fun....

...but Mommy, this thing is kinda chintzy. What happened to my Target Splish Splash Fantasy Pool?

My baby's party theme went from Bob The Builder to just "blue" as well. :)

And what did happen to the Fantasy Pool...?

That pool he is in looks like a let down compared to the fantasy pool. Oh well. Have a great time this weekend and enjoy every minute of it.

The best thing about a baby? That pool is JUST fine - anything with splashy water? Just Fine.

Have a great time this weekend!

Thanks for all the well wishes, guys! Just so you know, this is a "pool" my Aunt bought Little Guy to play in when he's at my parents house.

The Splish Splash Fantasy Pool is alive and well at our house. I'm sorry if I scared anyone. :)

Happy birthday and happy party to the cutie punkin!! You can do it - we had five (or so) one year-olds in the living room of a 2BR apartment for Tacy's first birthday. And lots of beer and wine.

That many babies in close proximity? I have the baby bug bad and just READING about that makes me melt. But alas... we'll be waiting until next year. So I'll just have to enjoy babies vicariously through you, k?

Hope the party is a sucess. You'll have to let me in on the things NOT to do when its over. Mine is in about 3 months.

p.s. that is quite possibly the smallest pool I've ever seen! LOL

He sure is a cutie though. I love that smile!!

Blogger Nut's mom said...

what did happen to the pool? oh wait... hahaha... just read the comment above! and when did your son start sitting? Nut is four m onths and has no inclination to start anytime soon so i dobt buying a pool would be a good idea, espcially since my loser A$$ can't find a damn job.

Just frustrated... and it's 105 in Metropolis. :(

but a happy birthday to you know who!!

Great Day: I still can't believe that our babies were born on the same day! Happy Birthday to Kathryn too!

Peanut's Mom: I think my son started sitting at about 6 months. BTW, in case you're interested...I think my aunt got this pool at Rite Aid. Do you have those where you live? It was pretty cheap, though I think that goes without saying. I mean, his little butt barely fits in it! lol

Such a little cutie! 5 one year olds....well all I can say is break out the martinis!

I balled my eyes out at both of my girls first birthdays...mushymushymushy.

Have fun!

Let the good times roll...and the temperature drop at least ten degrees! Good luck with the five one-year-olds!! Happy Birthday, Little Guy!!!

yayyy! I'm so happy for you, C. can't wait to hear how it went. wish I lived closer so I could aid in bringing the total number of 1- and nearly 1-year-olds to six. 'cause there's safety in numbers. just keep that in mind tomorrow. you may wish to chant it. or anything, for that matter, as long as it helps keep you sane.

try to not stress out and just have fun! you deserve some. you've been through a hell of a year.

*screaming so excitedly that if I typed it out, it would scare you*

That is THE most adorable tiny pool I have ever seen. How do they make such cool things for kids now? All I remember having was one of those stupid plastic wading pools that would get a crack after 3 uses.

Good luck with the party.

That is such a cute wading pool, reminds me of my own..Over a hundred degrees? Perhaps everyone can squeeze into that pool?

That is the smalles pool I have ever seen. Or maybe he is the biggest 1 year old I have ever seen.

Yeah, I survived! The kid is in bed, the presents are stashed away, and all is well. Phewww. Now, pass me a drink...

Oh, and lildb, if you lived closer I would have totally required your attendance at the party. :)

Okay. That is the teeniest baby pool in the world. And the cutest. But not as cute as the BEBE!

Hope you had a wonderful party -- sorry I didn't get to comment before it happened. (And I'm REALLY glad to hear that the Splish Splash Fantasy Pool is still alive and kickin' -- I was worried too when I saw the little pool!)

Wahoo, pool party for one! I imagine him saying "Yah, babe, that's a nice bikini. I like the way your butt looks in your swimming diaper. I'd invite you in, but I've only got room for me."
