His new bedding, with matching shirt.
A dump truck nightlight.
Another shirt. This one has an excavator on it.
We built a house into
a hill a giant mountain of rock. So we are intimately acquainted with excavators. And the dump trucks needed to haul away the rocks and dirt.
What better way to celebrate his birthday than with a theme? Plus, orange and yellow are currently pretty high up on his list of favorite colors, so it all fits in. Here's a sneak peek at what I'm planning for this weekend.
That's a bulldozer pinata. It's hiding at the top of the coat closet.
The favors. I'm a big fan of useful favors, not a bag with a ton of junk in it. This year I chose Amelia Bedelia Under Construction with Best Friends for Frances as a backup for the families with two kids, since it isn't necessary to have two copies of Amelia Bedelia, even though she is a favorite in our house.
My son already saw the books and was so excited, we have read them many times in the last few days. The party is on Sunday, so hopefully I'll have the full-party post for you next week!
