Social Mommy-An October to Remember

Posted on December 6, 2016

October is a HUGE month for us! All four of our birthdays are in October so its always a great time!   This year Alexander turned ONE! We hosted family and friends for a Safari themed birthday bash. His cake was purchased at Sam’s Club. I added the animal figurines (purchased from Michael’s) We had a hot dog bar, nacho bar, mini spaghetti cups, and lots of sugary treats for the children. The party goers enjoyed having their faces painted as well as creating their own jungle masks. It was a great time!
