William's third birthday party was so fun. Exhausting and I wonder why I have to go so "over the top" for a party that he probably won't remember . . . but really fun. David and I were so tired that night and I asked him if it was worth it. He thought so and it seemed that Will had a wonderful time though so I'd say it was. I'm so thankful to my mom for helping me so much over the last few days and to my in-laws for coming in at the eleventh hour and helping set up and clean up. I have awesome family.
Obviously, since Will is obsessed with dogs, I thought that the theme had to be dogs so that's where I started.
David had this adorable idea to build a dog house for the kids to play in. Will and his friends aren't exactly at an age where they want to play games and the dog house was a hit. We put some kid chairs and a table with stuffed doggies in there and the kids loved to run in and out of it.
and we served some "toilet water" to drink.
I also made puppy chow (or muddy buddies) and put out some Scottie dogs and "dog treats" (pretzel sticks with mini marshmallows at the end, dipped in melted white chocolate).
