For Lucas’ 2nd birthday, we are just having a small at home family party. We don’t have any family members here with us in Alaska unfortunately, so we’re just keeping things small. Even though a huge party with lost of people, presents, candy and decorations isn’t involved, I still want to make his birthday special. I got the night off from work, as it falls on a day I usually work, and I’ve been trying to think about what we could do.
Obviously, he has to have a cake or cupcake or something similar, but here are my thoughts. I don’t want to make a huge cake because I don’t want to eat any and my husband doesn’t like cake. However, it is pretty simple and cheap to make a cake so I suppose it wouldn’t hurt and I could let him have the whole thing. Well, not really eat the whole thing but get some good pictures with it! 🙂
Or, I was thinking I could make one mini sized cake just for him. Or, I could make one cupcake just for him. Is it possible to make one cupcake? Or, I could make him cookies and put a candle on it.
OR I could buy him a cupcake from the store and call it good. But I feel guilty if I don’t make something (even though I am not a baker and I have no idea what I’m doing) and I hate to spend more money on his cake then on his birthday present itself.
Do you have any ideas for me?? What have you done to have a special and fun birthday for your little ones to make it memorable and fun, yet simple too?
