Party Time: The Very Hungry Caterpillar


We had Liam's Birthday party on Saturday! 

The weather was amazing & we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day-- we were lucky, because the party was outside at the pavilion & playground at the church where the boys go to Mother's Day Out. The timing (11am-1pm) was just long enough for the kids to play on the playground, eat lunch, open presents and eat some cake. We are so lucky to have family & friends who love Liam so much and want to help us celebrate!

Here are some pics of our fun day!

The (mini) cake:


We served the fruit from the book that the caterpillar ate:


And made up our own treats for what he ate on Saturday:


The chocolate cake push pops were great for the park (minimal mess!):


The food table with Liam's Birthday banner:


 The Pavilion:

 
The party favors (reusable VHC bags, bubbles, color-your-own-caterpillar cups, leaf crayons, sprees and tubes of gum):

Liam's Birthday Outfit-- a personalized VHC shirt with red & white seersucker shorts:

 
 Jack had his own VHC shirt, with the same shorts (Unfortunately, he was wearing a bib in most shots so I didn't get a good pic! Better shot here.):


 The gang all ate:


The babies played:


 Jack & Daddy read some of Liam's new books:


And Mommy & Liam mowed the lawn:


We had a fantastic day!


Happy 2nd Birthday, Liam!


WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH!

  1. I am very desperate to get about a dozen of the VHC bags. Where did you get yours from please?

    1. I got them from the dollar spot at Target, back in Sept! I don't think they have them anymore. :( I know that the Eric Carle Museum website has small VHC treat bags, though!

    3. I Lost my Money to scammers but not anymore
      Well, who would have believed this. When I saw a comment
      by one Allison babara, I thought it was one of the Scammers
      ways to convince someone. Looking at his comment, I saw
      an element of doubt since he was telling stories. Well I did it
      50/50 which means I can’t lose my money to any scammer
      again. I contacted the email on the testimony of Allison?
      Babara (securehackers01@gmail.com) and I was
      replied immediately. I was shocked but I didn’t lose my stand.
      I asked them to give me proof to be sure they are not
      scammers like others that I have met before and they sent me
      a proof. Then I requested to get my card which they sent to
      me in Germany in just 3 days. Am happy now because I have?
      recovered my cash I lost to scammers. My first withdrawal?
      was $10,000 and I couldn’t believe my eyes until I confirmed?
      their word which says that I can withdraw up $63,000 in a
      month. secureblankatmSolution? are real because I got my?
      card in just 3 days when I requested for one. Contact their
      mail (securehackers01@gmail.com ) for yours. They
      didn’t scam me.
      Morris mabel is my name and if you are scared, please reach
      me through my mail dasinator02@gmail.com

    4. ⚔️SECURITY is a constant concern in today’s world, when technology can easily work with or against our safety. Everyone carries a smartphone these days, with a growing 2.32 billion users who access private information on their device daily.
      The question is, who else is accessing that private information?
      In 2016, hackers targeted nearly a million Android phones–and that statistic isn’t even considering phones with other operating systems such as Apple or Windows.
      Luckily, there are ways to tell whether your smartphone has been hacked. If any activity on your phone seems suspicious, run a few quick checks to make sure that your phone’s security is on the up-and-up. Let’s start from the beginning:o

      Know the Signs and Signals
      Make yourself aware of common signs that your phone is being monitored. Knowing all these codes doesn’t help if you don’t know what abnormal activity looks like, and therefore don’t know when or how to use them. Warning signs include:
      * Unknown apps: Malicious monitoring apps need to be directly installed on your device, so it’s a red flag if you see an app with a vague name that you don’t recognize.
      * Rapid battery loss: Malware constantly running in the background takes a toll on your phone’s resources, which can also lead to slow performance and unusual overheating.
      * Strange text messages: Are friends receiving SMS or social media messages that you didn’t send?
      * Increased data or SMS use: When your data and SMS use for the month exceeds your normal use significantly, it can mean that you’re not the only one controlling device use.
      * Pop-ups despite having an adblocker. Strange pop-ups may appear attempting to phish information if malware is affecting your phone.
      * Blocked e-mails: Are you sending e-mails that never reach their destination? This mysterious phenomena indicates that your e-mail configuration has been moved to an unauthorized server.
      * Data breaches
      * : If you’ve had private information like passwords or private messages leaked, that’s a good sign that there’s a problem elsewhere. 
      This isn’t an exhaustive list of potential signs and signals that you’re being hacked, but it should give you a good idea so you can make common-sense decisions about what’s normal and what isn’t. Next: what action should you take if you notice a red flag?
