The little-lest member of this Halu-Halo family is turning one next week.
Yes, I know, right? Where did that baby go?
She, as you can see below, has decided that she wants to be a toddler.
But I refuse to give this last year up without having a party. Not just for her, but for me, for Hubby, and for her older siblings. These babies don't get to be such a happy one-year-olds without the rest of the crew who feed, cajole, appease, and tickle her. So I have been busy, thinking of special little ways to celebrate the day.
Inspired by another friend's idea, I decided to do handmade for the thank you goodie bags for the children coming. I love goodie bags like I love Chuck E Ch&*se -----> which means, not so much. But just like going to that crazy restaurant/arcade, we have given them away ourselves because it's just all part of childhood - no? There are bigger fish to fry, and I would rather save my energy for that.
Instead, I have tried to stay away from the goodie bag aisle at the Party Store and have opted for more meaningful take-a-ways.
Here's a sneak peak of three I'm giving away, though more are in the works.
It's going to be a small bag, that's for sure! But hopefully it will last longer than the whistles and tops that find their way under the kids' beds or in between the couch cushions.
What have you all done for goodie bags?
