Like most families, we're getting ready for the Holidays. I have already bought most of my gifts, and just have a few more to go. I am also in the process of looking for great menu ideas and decorations to help celebrate the season. Wreaths, candles, and cute Holiday-themed decor is about to make its way out of dusty boxes to adorn our shelves and walls again. I even have an assortment of Holiday themed Signazon postcards ready to mail out to loved ones. I just love this time of year, don't you?
For our family, the Holiday season is a bit different, though. You see, my daughter, Sophie, was born on New Year's Eve, and my son Xander was born just 2 weeks after that. I love the fact that my kids were born so close together, but the fact that they were both born right after Christmas can be a bit stressful, especially when planning their parties. So many people are on vacation or have plans, especially on New Year's Eve, so we usually give them a joint birthday party after the hustle and bustle of the Holidays has blown over. (They're young enough now that they don't mind sharing a party, so why not?)
This year, I am not sure what theme I would like to choose for their birthday party. I was thinking that monkeys would be a cute idea, but we have done that before. Or maybe a Disney themed party with Mickey and Minnie Mouse, or possibly Winnie the Pooh. It's tricky finding something gender neutral enough to celebrate both a boy's and a girl's birthday, so I am bouncing a lot of different ideas around right now.
I plan to go all out this year, since the kids are old enough to really have fun with it. I am thinking about getting tons of decorations and even custom banners to hang throughout the house. I am also thinking of having themed snacks, too. (Thankfully, Pinterest will be there to help with those ideas since I am not too creative!)
What kinds of themes do you use for your kids' birthday parties? Do you have any fun, gender neutral party theme suggestions? I'd love to hear them!
