I plan things waaaayyyy in advance. So I do realize that Annika won't be 3 until November but really that's just a little over 2 months away and lately time has been flying!
I think we have a theme since Annika has a new love in her life, The Lorax. Let me tell you, Josh and I know all the words to all the songs because in the last 2 weeks we have seen that movie 5 times (and one day we watched it twice). So far it hasn't annoyed the hell out of us (Happy Feet/Happy Feet 2) and Annika talks about the Lorax all the time. Before we watched the movie we read the book (we've actually had the book for a while because I bought it at a Goodwill bookstore about 2 years ago) and it's always been one of Annika's favorites.
Thanks to Pinterest I have about a million different ideas!! If you follow me on there you can see them on my "Ideas for Birthday Parties" board. I'm actually considering having her party at our house just so I can decorate and so that we don't have to eat hot dogs, again, or have crappy weather like we have the last two years out at the park we've had the parties at. Her first birthday we were all freezing and her second birthday it looked like it was going to rain so we had to move the party to our house anyway!
