a blog about my busy little life as a mom

under the sea

About a month ago, we celebrated Macy’s birthday with a party at home.  I knew that it would be too hectic to host a party with a brand new baby at home, so we celebrated early.  And today, I thought multiple times “thank god we already had that party!”.  I love hosting parties, but they are a lot of work.  I even tried to keep this party simple.  I definitely wouldn’t have been able to do it without all of my mom’s help.  Thanks KiKi! 🙂

Originally, I wanted to have a mermaid party (because Macy likes mermaids) but it was too hard to find mermaid party decor, so I settled for an “under the sea” theme.  I had some blow up fish in a net, blue punch, a candy bar complete with swedish fish, gummy worms, and “fish egg” skittles, and pin the tail on the mermaid.  However, the real hit of the party was the bounce house we borrowed from a new friend.  The kids absolutely LOVED it.

It was a wonderful day spent surrounded by friends and family that love our little Macy Reese just as much as we do.
