We got to celebrate Olan’s birthday party the weekend after his real birthday this year, and what a joy it was! Fall Conference has always fallen on Olan (and my) birthday weekend, so we always wind up shuffling things around a bit during this time. The year Olan was born was the first year since 2005 that we’ve missed Fall Conference! That’s a lot of years, folks. Who decides to have a baby on one of the busiest weekend of the year? For real… The Henrys. Actually I guess it was God! Ha!
Anyway! I always have such a fun time putting together my kids’ birthday parties. Evie has spoiled me the last few years, as I thought for sure she’d suggest something super tacky for her party one of these times (ha ha), but all she’s ever requested are helium balloons. Therefore, I’ve gotten the privilege to run with my own themes for seven birthdays so far (5+2=7)!
Now, I love me some breakfast, so anytime I can schedule a party where it makes sense to have it in the morning, I’m in. Olan had a sunshine themed breakfast party this year, complete with bacon, egg, and cheese croissants, a yogurt bar, coffee cake and orange juice [virgin] mimosa punch!
A home full of family, balloons, food, and gifts (lots of car themed presents… it’s an obsession!)… how much more can a little dude ask for? Thanks for loving our Olan so well, everyone! He is one lucky little lad!
