>And on a happier note…

>The birthday season is settling over the Bean household with our first parties this week. This year, we will be having a super fun party for the TwinBeans that is Toy Story and Mulan. Somehow I have a feeling this will be more like the parallel play that the kids engaged in when small than the interactive play they engage in now. We’ll likely end up with two parties running side by side. However, they insisted they wanted to celebrate on the same day ;).

This year we don’t expect any people who are confused about why the party invitation for the birthday boy or girl they got was different from the new mom they’ve just met (has happened more than once in the past). We’re chilling out and doing a smaller at-home party this year with good friends from school and outside. We’ll see what the kids think of it as it’s been a few years since we took this approach. As for me, I’m excited (and exhausted) just thinking of it. I’ll be posting the cake pictures once they’re made…

Happy Birthdays!

  1. >Happy Birthdays to you! We are celebrating as well. Our theme is survival – the kids, well sledding. Should be a great weekend in any event. Can't wait to see your pics.

  2. >Excellent fun Pick. Are you making sled cakes? With small edible people? Seriously, take care of them out there in that cold… brrr. We've been wishing for some of that ourselves, sigh.

  3. >I didn't understand this part…"This year we don't expect any people who are confused about why the party invitation for the birthday boy or girl they got was different from the new mom they've just met (has happened more than once in the past)."

  4. >Anon, We typically invite JuniorBean's friends to his party and JujuBean's friends to her party, not noting that they are twins. In past years, we had two moms who were standing talking and realizing that they were actually invited to parties for different kids. One thought she was in the wrong place! Since everyone coming is fairly close, they should realize that it's twins who are having the birthday even though their invite came from one or the other… Oh, and of course to confuse the moms further, the themes are always different. Confusion central here in the bean household.
