Party planning - Alexander's construction themed birthday

Alexander's birthday is still a couple of months away but he was quite adamant we started planning after attending a couple of his friends' parties and so we did. We started off by making a list of people he wanted to invite, he named a couple of his favourite friends, before deciding it might be a good idea for Mummy to be there. And then as an afterthought, he invited his Daddy too.
Then we had to decide on the theme which was an easy task, seeing as Alexander is just obsessed with construction and diggers and trucks. Never in my life had I imagined I would be planning a construction themed party but there you go, we found these gorgeously appropriate invites from Tiny Prints which got Alexander's big tick of approval. I ordered them together with matching envelope liners, wrapping paper, decorative stickers for use on goodie bags and even I got all excited at the thought of having Alexander and all his friends having a ball digging around with their diggers and trucks.

We're so ready to party!
Except, Alexander has had a change of heart and has now decided, "Nobody come to my party!" And guess why? Because he doesn't want to share his birthday cake.

Toddlers. They're tricky.

He is so cute and could be moody too. It must be so fun to plan his party. Don't forget to have fun too.

I remember when my little guy was that age! We had everything 'big diggers.' Books, toys, videos (yes, he's that old), clothes... and yes, a 'construction birthday cake. Can't wait to see how his party turns out! FYI: as we go through all of our things preparing for the move, Andy went through his toys and his equipment toys made the GOTTA KEEP list! ;)
