Birthday Party and A Giveaway!!!

On Saturday, we finally got around to celebrating Greta’s birthday with friends.  When your birthday is 3 days after Christmas, it’s difficult to try to plan a party!  I like to wait until the holiday busy-ness has ended and it gives my twins something to look forward to!

She wanted to have her party at the movie theater so we saw the movie “Tooth Fairy.”  It was really cute and the kids enjoyed it!!  They got a tour of the film booths and Greta got to start a movie!  I love when my kids birthday parties are somewhere other than our home…it’s just so much easier!!  I will say that I have done some amazing theme parties at home when my older girls were little however.  Now that I have 5 children it’s not quite so easy being creative!

This picture is dark because we were in the film projection room.  The huge metal trays hold the movie film.  He told the kids that for every one hour that a movie runs, the length of film is ONE MILE!  The new movie “Avatar” is 3 hours long and  that film is 3 MILES LONG!!

that is an ingenious theme for a birthday party, espefially that they got to go in the back and tour and then start a movie. You're still creative, you just don't have the time you used to!! I'm heading on over to Angie's then to your daughter's etsy shop.
