Lea’s 1/2 Birthday

Sometimes my blogging gets a little out of order…like this one.  Recently I took some family pictures of some really great friends of mine and posted the images in a somewhat timely manner.  These images I’m posting today are from June, when Pam decided to throw her daughter a “Half-Birthday” party.  What?  You’ve never been to a “Half-Birthday” party before?  That’s too bad…I suggest you make friends with someone who was born on a big holiday, like Lea who was born on Christmas last year.  Lea’s thunder is kind of going to be stolen every December 25th, which makes sense since most people who celebrate Christmas are celebrating the birth of Jesus.  So Pam, being the creative mom that she is, threw Lea a half-birthday party…Brilliant!  And let’s be honest, if we delve into our own childhood imagination….while having a birthday on Christmas is cool and all, it most likely also means not as many presents!

Onto the party details….The theme was from the book, “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle.  It’s about …yep you guessed it…a “Very Hungry Caterpillar” who eats and eats and eats until he turns into a cocoon and then into a butterfly.  So Pam put out a spread of EVERYTHING the caterpillar ate in the book!  It was really fun!  And because I like you…and trust you to not hold this against me, I’m going to share my ditzy moment….I thought the food on the table was a representation of all of Pam’s food cravings she had while pregnant with Lea!  And YES, I was familiar with the book “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” prior to the party!  Please don’t judge :)

Pam even labeled the food with quotes from the book!  I’m not going to post every picture of the food on the table for fear of copyright issues :)

Here is Lea, the “half-birthday” girl :)

Look at those CHEEKS!

Pam isn’t the only creative one in the family, Tim took it upon himself to help by making the caterpillar out of balloons :)

So Lea, Happy LATE half-birthday!  And a very Happy 10 days EARLY Birthday!
