This year, on October 5th, Mikey turns two! Well, that means a Blue's Clues Party -- since all the other ones had Blues Clues Parties when they turned two.
But Mikey doesn't even watch Blues Clues. He doesn't even really like TV.
Unless there is sword fighting, which I find hilarious. We will be watching a movie, or Game of Thrones and Mikey could be asleep -- and he will hear the swords and bolt upright to watch!
So you see my dilemma?
Do I make him have a Blues Clues Party, or find something he is into... (can you even have a jump off of everything you see themed party?)
The "all three clues" cakes we made for Kelly's 2nd birthday.
I love Blues Clues --
Then we have Big Mikey's birthday a week later. Which, admittedly is a lot easier -- usually. The kids all make him cards and we make a cake. But this year he turns 40!
(amazing how he caught up to me, huh?)
So we will have to so something -- but it would probably be wrong to have him make all his own food for his own party, right?
12 days later, Paige turns 14. Fourteen.
Paige hasn't had a birthday party in the last two years -- because I had a newborn and then a one year old party to plan. She and a couple of friends hung out at the Academy of Sciences last year, but this year, I can't think of anything -- especially since Halloween is a week later!
And Halloween is huge at our house!
Paige as a Mummy. DJ was a Vampire and Kelly a Witch.
I always like to stick to a sort of theme, but last year
I let them (okay, sort of) choose.
DJ was a Headless Horseman, Paige a Pumpkin.
Kelly -- who came up with her costume on her own, was a "Dead Princess" and
Mikey was a Gorilla.
The year before he was a Banana.
(because it's just funny)
This year, I want to go back to making them all dress alike.
Before the two older ones protest.
I've wanted them to be Three Blind Mice or The Three Little Pigs, but Dad keeps vetoing those....
And since now there are four of them --
Not a clue.
.... not a clue?
Blues Clues Halloween?!?
