birthday plans

I had been looking at old photos to send to my cousins who are planning a slideshow of sorts for my Grandpa's 90th birthday extravaganza in June. I have enjoyed seeing the old photos from my parents and my stash. When I was digging in boxes for more photos to upload from college onto facebook I found my Martha Stewart Baby & Kids magazines from 2002 & some. That is how I got to thinking about ideas for Avery's Third birthday, which is not until the end of August. I am sure it's not any way related to my birthday the end of this month. =) I have always loved butterflies, so since I have already done a cherry party, I guess I will do a butterfly/summery/floral thing. I suppose this is the last party before she requests princesses...which will be fun too though...maybe I can persuade away from the whole Disney princesses theme. These are fun ideas...dress up party, dolls. This is from Parents. Does anyone miss Child magazine? Loved their fashion spreads. Now back to this year's. I think these butterfly & flower cupcakes are darn cute...

Can you guess which is Martha's? This was for Bryce's first birthday party oh so long ago. I cannot believe he has only one month (& three days) left of kindergarten!! I bought a size 2 shoe for him today!! & boy are those sketchers ugly. I tried to talk him into some black Vans, but he was so not into the laces. He may never learn to tie his shoes!

Those cupcakes look great! I am sure they will be a huge hit!
We were at Discover Mills on the Carousel. Right now, Leah really just likes to chew on the blocks, maybe Avery could actually create something!!!

You find the sweetest ideas for parties. I wish I was more of a baker to try things out like make my own giraffe cake! ;) I wouldn't have the slightest bit of confidence in that!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TODAY!!!!! I hope you have a wonderful day. Any fun plans??
