Birthday Bucket

Wow! Was it really NOVEMBER when I last updated my blog? Guess I need to get back into things huh? Anyway, yes, I'm still in business, I've just gotten busy with life in general and let the little things like this blog take a back seat. I'm still around and still taking vinyl orders so if you have something in mind, let's get started!

Anyway, back to the topic at hand. Today is my oldest child's 11th Birthday! Can't believe it's been 11 years since he was born. He's a great kid and an awesome older brother to his younger siblings. This year we started a new tradition in our family for Birthdays. I saw this idea when I was reading a friend's personal blog and decided that it needed to be part of our family traditions as well. The tradition is called "The Birthday Bucket". My kids still get one bigger present (for my son it was a new bike) but the bucket is filled with smaller things that are some favorites of the birthday child.  Relatively inexpensive and just some fun items that are just for them.

Here is the bucket my son got today. In it was a new t-shirt, a game, a Lego Mini Figure (we love these in our house!) some glow sticks, silly string, a couple note books for him to draw all of his inventions in, a ruler to help with the drawings, and then some of his favorite candies. He was quite happy with his loot.

In March was my baby's 1st Birthday so that is when we started this new tradition. Here's his bucket of goodies:

His bucket included a new outfit, some fun bath toys, new books, a Matchbox car, animal crackers, and a big spikey ball.

This tradition is already becoming a huge hit and my other 2 kids are already anticipating what will be in their birthday buckets!

If you want to make one of your own, the bucket I got was from the Dollar Spot at Target and then of course the vinyl is from me. If you are interested, The vinyl (birthday bucket words and polka dots in 3 colors and sizes-you can choose your colors) can be purchased for $5.00 for the kit. Contact me and let's get started!
