We aren't going to throw a big 3rd party, but grandparents and close friends will come I haven't mentioned his birthday because it's still some time away, but yesterday, he said he wanted a Lightening McQueen cake... so... looks like we have a Cars theme! That'll be cute.
Anyone else going to have a theme for the 3rd birthday!
and holy heck. They're going to be 3!!!

I was hoping for a "puppy" party and then there was some talk about a "train" theme. And now she's pretty firm that she wants ANOTHER "wheels on the bus" party. Oh well, it's her party so if that's what she wants, she can have it.
I'm not even sure if we will have a party. It's still pretty up in the air right now. If we do, I think I want to have it at the children's farmstead (because he will finally be old enough to ride the ponies!) and either have a cowboy theme or a Toy Story Woody/Jesse theme. That said, Max has been asking for a Hello Kitty party. I have a feeling we will NOT be doing that.
To be honest, I'd like to stick to kid parties only for "big" years (1 year, 5, 10, 13, 16, something like that). And just do a smaller family party on other years. However, Sam has had a big party every year so far (Max only had one for his first birthday), and since she is turning 5, will have one this year. Plus, her mom and dad kind of do this stupid competition thing over who throws her a better party each year. I just hate thinking about some day having 4 kids and having to throw 4 parties a year. And then on top of it this year is the first year Max is really understanding the idea of birthdays/parties and he LOVES them (he sings the Happy Birthday song all the time ). I know that if Sam has a birthday party and he doesn't, he will notice and be really bummed out.
Sorry for the novel! I'm just still working out what to do.

E wants to go to Chuck E Cheese so thats where we will go. We are not big cake people so we usually get an ice cream cake but I will get a decoration of their choice. So if he wanted Hello Kittie he could get it. I so much prefer to make it a big family day where they get to pick everything we do. Birthday parties can be a big PITA and get expensive if you let them. Every year hubby says we should do a big party and what not and I tell him its all you. You can plan, prep, purchase and I will show up. He has yet to do it so we stick to the family day.
