Tomorrow is the day...

that I will have too many 4 year olds running around my home. You see Sunday marks the 4th birthday of my beloved Mini #1. I can't believe that my little boy will be four.

So tomorrow is the big birthday bash! A construction themed bash no less.

Before we move on, let's take a moment to say a little prayer for my sanity, the sanity of my dear husband, and one that the weather cooperates.

We have hardhats and construction work aprons for all. I have stations all planned out with various construction themed activities...dump truck bean bag toss, sidewalk chalk, tool/building area, construction vehicle play zone, work apron decorating, and 200' of caution tape to add to the ambiance and block everything off. Also, if the weather permits there will be a big excavator in my yard that the the children can take rides on. My brother-in-law is a builder and he has called in a favor to help us add the excavator.

The weather MUST cooperate. I do not have room in my house for all of these activities, wild children, adults, and the sanity of my husband.

For favors, I got these construction kits. They come with the pieces, glue, paints, and brushes to make something. Mini #1 picked out bird houses for the girls and airplanes for the boys. They are also getting a jar of play-doh and a play-doh tool for constructing their masterpieces. They are all wrapped up in clear bags with thin caution tape ribbon.

Mini #1 is very excited about his party and his friends coming over. He doesn't know about the excavator, so that will be an extra surprise.

Thanks for those prayers...I will let you know how all things happen.

Enjoy your weekend!

PS-The construction invitation above is what the lovely Bitsy Creations created for mini #1's special day. We changed the information and have added them to our shop for you all to create your own construction themed party. Be sure to check out our complete Invitation and Announcement Station.
