Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Birthday

Even before Evelyn was born, she was listening to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.  Charlotte used to sing it to my baby bump all the time.  And to this day, Evelyn likes hearing the song whenever she’s upset – especially if it’s her big sister singing it to her.

So when it came time to start thinking of a theme for Evelyn’s first birthday party, a Twinkle Twinkle Little Star theme was an easy choice.

We kept her party very small, simple, and laid back.  My parents came out from Texas, and we had a few of our closest friends here come over for cake and punch.

I also kept decorations super simple, just stringing up some cardboard stars that I cut out, painted metallic gold, and spray glittered.

After the kids played for a while, it was time for cake.  Evelyn was probably the only kid in the house that wasn’t excited.

Evelyn took a few licks/bites of her cake, but really wasn’t that interested.  And other than getting a little cake on her tutu and some in her hair, she didn’t make a big mess either.

Evelyn loved getting help from her friends opening gifts, and has already been playing hard with her new toys!

And after such an exciting day, she actually came somewhat close to sleeping through the night.  We take what we can get when it comes to sleep with this girl!

Thanks to all who have wished our sweet girl a happy birthday.  She truly is our bright and shining star!
