I made it back from BlogHer’11 in time for Aiden’s baptism, but I did miss Ryu and Kira’s ½ birthday party L “Really, ½ birthday party?” you ask? Their birthdays are in the winter, so us Midwesterners can’t have BBQs and pool parties all year round. It’s actually pretty funny how Kira thought her mom was decorating for Mia’s birthday. The 3 ½ year old didn’t quite get the ½ birthday concept. And yes, the kids are back in school and the temperatures are dropping...and I am just now posting a pool party.
I was pretty bummed about missing the party since I gave my SIL a ton of ideas, in addition to these, the week before and was looking forward to seeing what she crafted up. Similar to the birthday party decorated for $1, the cost to decorate this party was next to nothing! To doll up this party on a small budget, my SIL mostly used supplies she already had on hand.
