JQ and I aren't really big on commercial characters like Dora and Elmo so we went went with a more general theme. Round. The options seemed endless and I ran with the idea. I put it on the invitations I made. Sorry, you can't have my address (except for you and you) or our phone number (especially not you).
The menu was really simple: Sloppy Joes (round), chips, pretzels, & veggies with two different dips (all served in big round dishes), the fruit cups above (note the OCD with the alternating cup colors and varying picks—not by accident), cake, and beverages.
As you can see I took this round thing seriously and made cupcakes (chocolate with cream cheese frosting and butter yellow with chocolate frosting) and arranged them artfully in, what else? That's right, circles.
G-man with a present from Grandma & Grandpa W. A stacking set that just happens to be half circles that can be made into balls. This was not planned.
Swinging in his new playset from Grandma G, Grampa G, Uncle A, and Gam.

Everything turned out nice. Gideon was a really good boy and had fun. He is such a people person already. We got a few inches of snow the night before and 11 people canceled on me the day of the party. We ended up with lots of extra food as a result. Good thing Sloppy Joes freeze well.
