Having two children close in age (with birthdays eight days apart) has its pluses and minuses. The first two weeks of October are birthday central around here, and while it's nice to have all the celebrating happen at once, my oven is about as tired as I am. Turning 3 and 5 this year, I definitely hyped the joint birthday party idea to Millie and Vivian. Luckily, they were
duped easily convinced. I am curious at how many years I'll be able to get away with this, though... I was talking to someone the other day who revealed he hated sharing his birthday with his little brother while they were growing up, so I'll definitely keep that in mind as the years go by.
How do you feel about the combo birthday party?
I found wings for all the kids on Ebay, and headed to Michael's for "fairy houses" and painting supplies. Recipes and unicorn cake inspiration came from Pinterest (of course!), and music and face painting was provided by our neighborhood's party entertainer extraordinaire. Such a fun morning celebrating our little gals! Here are just a few pictures from the day:
