number 3 birthday cupcakeAs you read this, my family and I are busy preparing for my Leo's 3rd birthday party (the official day is not until October 29th; I can't believe he's turning 3 years old!!!).

Not sure what kind of party we'll pull together, but off now for some party-making fun...!

Enjoy these links to some super-cool 3rd birthday parties:

Hope you have a great weekend!

    I'm thinking about doing an Itsy Bitsy Spider party for my daughter (she turns 3 in January), but I'm not sure yet. You know, like cakes shaped like spiders, and stuff. It's just going to be me and her so I don't have to do anything fancy. Just something small to make the day special.


    And happy birthday to your son! :)

    My Daughter will be 3 Dec 22nd, her party is the 12th. The theme is Dora! We're having her party at a park (we live in fl). Excited and sad!

    A ”magician” can be fun for the young set if you hire an children's entertainment specialist not just a guy who does tricks.

    We just had my son's 2nd birthday party yesterday.  We had a Thomas theme.  My son is obsessed with trains.

    My youngest turned 3 back in April.  It ended up snowing.  The weather sucked.  We took her out to lunch at Red Robin then stopped at Toys-r-us for her to pick out some gifts.  Then we went home and ordered pizza because by then it was near blizzard conditions (it was mild and raining that morning...the temp dropped like 20 degrees while we were out).  We also had cake before bed (homemade zucchini cupcakes with homemade cream cheese frosting...her favorite).

    2 days later we took her to build a bear for the rest of her gift.  That's all we did.  We don't throw parties for the kids.  My middle daughter turns 7 in 2 weeks.  Not sure what we'll do since my husband is working all weekend.

    At first we were going to have a Wubbzy party but Tiphani ended up founding a Dora Cake she really likes. So we're doing Dora for her 3rd birthday. Her birthday is December 13.
