Joy’s Birthday Planning and Excitingness!

Hey, everyone! Joy’s birthday is coming up soon….and I need YOUR help!

I have a $5 Target gift card to buy her some cute stuff at the “$1-or-$3” spot in Target, so that’s good. But we’re working on the house, so how will I celebrate her birthday? I wanted to host a themed party(still thinking on what theme…) for her, but her birthday falls on a Saturday which is our main day for working on the house. Tomorrow is the Saturday before her birthday – we unload our pods into our new house that day! I’m excited! Well anyways…

I need your advice! How can I celebrate Joy’s birthday? I’ve got tape and present wrap, so that will add a lot to the photos I’ll take of my girls celebrating her birthday. But when will I have her party? Every single day is precious to working on the house since we only have…less than 17 days until we move in! And we have to paint, put new flooring in, scrape popcorn off the ceiling(it’s an old-fashioned), etc…My dad is finding someone to help us do all this as well. What if February 28 is a much-too-busy day to spend a couple of hours for Joy’s party? (that includes setting it up, taking pictures, and posting it on here.)

What do I do then? I can’t just neglect my doll’s birthday…so here’s my idea. I could have her birthday party on a not-so-busy day that week. But I don’t know our schedule, so what if EVERY day is busy? 

Please comment with your ideas/solutions/thoughts! I’d love to know how you’d do this if you were me.

    You could postpone her party to another day, maybe even around two weeks later (I’m sure Joy would understand ;)), and still celebrate her birthday; just not right then 🙂 Or, you could get everything ready day by day until a nearer date, and then just take photos, and if there’s no time to post about it, you could post it a few days later (I did that for Kirsten’s birthday this past year). 🙂

    While I was reading your dilemma, I thought that you could have a party on a different day. But maybe, if every day is busy, you could have a little bit of party one day when you have time, a little bit the next day, etc. That way, you wouldn’t have to take a hunk of time out of one day. (And maybe do a little something extra special on Joy’s actual birthday!) 🙂

    Maybe you could make Joy think that you all forgot her birthday and throw her a surprise party once you move into your new house.

    I think that when you have some time, prepare some food, presents etc ( if you haven’t already) Then, wake up early on her b-day morning and celebrate with her b-day breakfast party where you give her presents and sing etc. Make sure that it is a special breakfast! Hope I’m not to late!
