My little David is a Christmas elf. He was born December 20th. When you ask those with Christmas birthdays how they feel about it you get one of two responses. Either, “I love it! I always have family around then!” or “I HATE IT SO MUCH MY PARENTS MUST DESPISE ME TO HAVE CONCEIVED ME IN MARCH AND I CELEBRATE IN JUNE.” Well then.
We’re approaching David’s first birthday. Let’s not talk about how much it pains me to even write that! He is still my little tiny baby and I am not ready to give that up for toddlerhood. He is trying to walk and talk and play with Libbie and it’s too much for my mama heart.
But anyway, I am trying to decide if I should do something for his first birthday. It feels wrong NOT to! I know we won’t have any family there, obviously, because we will see them all the following weeks for Christmas. So … will anyone come?
Right now I’m thinking of having an open house-type get-together the Saturday before his birthday. I realize most people will have something else that day, but maybe they would drop by. What do you think?
If we do have a mini-party, I think I am going with a snowflake/winter theme. Here’s some of my inspiration.
Of course, if you know me you realize I mean a VERY simplistic version of these decorations. I’m not a very good party planner. And I haven’t been able to convince Amanda to just throw one of my parties for me yet.
So, I want to hear it. What’s your advice for Christmas babies?
Is that not the most hilarious cover ever?
Seeing that Mary’s blog is Giving Up on Perfect, her writing speaks to me! (Because really, I am forced to give up on perfect each and every day. Good enough is the new perfect, or something like that, right?)
I had the privilege of proofreading Plan a Fabulous Party and if I do throw a little David shindig, I will definitely be referencing my copy! It has tips for planning, decorating, and food, along with cute quotes, tricks, and pointers for every kind of get-together.
You can buy it using that link above or get it for your Kindle on Amazon. With the holidays quickly approaching … it can’t hurt to have some quick party tips at your fingertips! The book is $7.99, but with code FABPARTY you can get $3 off through tomorrow, 11/15.
