5 party favorites from our summer birthday bash

by

Kelly Wilbanks

posted in Products

We have four birthdays in our family in May and June: My husband, my 3-year-old Evie, my almost 6-year-old Vivi, and myself. When you add in Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and our anniversary the first week of July we’ve been celebrating for almost two months straight. You know who’s exhausted by the end of all that celebrating?  Everyone!

So we held a Mega Birthday party last weekend and it was a pressure-free, enjoyable three hours with good friends and family. It really doesn’t take much to entertain kids. Last year for my oldest daughter’s fifth birthday we rented a bounce-house and party space. After the decorations, the cake, the rental, we were out a chunk of change. And that was just one of the four birthdays.

I blame my mom-guilt for that one since we’d just had a baby and I wanted my girl to feel celebrated since I’d been so focused on her sisters. But, you don’t need all that to have a day your family won’t forget.

mega-party-image

Here are some things we bought to celebrate:

1. Slip n’ slide: Who doesn’t remember using a slip’n slide as a kid? Super easy to set up and the kids (5 and older) managed themselves well except for the occasional fight for the slide. The littles needed some turn-taking management, but just followed the big girls for the most part. Annie (15 months) enjoyed herself too, even if it was only to drink the water coming out of the spouts. (Amazon, $ 11.99)

slip-in-slide

2. Balls & Ball Pit: This ball pit comes with a playpen included, but we used with our pre-purchased Jumpolene. 200 balls was smaller than I thought it would be, but it filled our bounce house and were plenty for what we wanted. It was great for the littles to have some place to be away from the big kids. (Amazon, $ 27.99)

ball-pit-playpen

3. Parachute: This is another childhood favorite for me. I remember feeling such excitement when this was brought out during P.E. or gymnastics. It’s so easy and has so many uses. It was a great way to organize the kids and keep them busy. I’m glad we’ll have this on hand for future playdates, parties, boring afternoons etc… Each kid was delighted when we brought this out.(Amazon, $ 13.88)

parachute

4.  Balloons: So, this was my biggest expense for the day. These were also the only decorations I paid for because my friend and I decided to just combine ALL of our leftover decorations from past parties for Mega-birthday. So, I spent nearly $ 50 on all these balloons. Yikes! I let Vivi and Evie get a $ 10.00 balloon of their choosing and then followed up with a dozen balloons and a weight. I knew they’d be more expensive at Party City, but I also knew they’d have more selection than the Dollar Store. (Party City, $ 1.29 +)

balloons

5. Squirt guns: I hate providing party favors. It’s just more junk to throw away in my opinion so I try to be very selective on what I send home. These water-guns were given to all the kids that came to our party and they got to take them home. I figured at the very least they’d have fun memories of our party and have a toy they could really use this summer. (Amazon, $ 17.95)

squirt-guns

I’ve talked a lot about the kids and what we did to keep them occupied because that was the treat for us parents. Having them busy allowed us to catch up — just a little bit- with each other. It was nice to find a couple of cards with my name or my husband’s in the present pile. We kind of forgot that we were celebrating ourselves as well until then.

Was mega-birthday successful? Yes, I believe it was. Will we do it again? Yes, I think so. Even though we’re fighting for time against graduations, end of the year parties, baby showers and countless other summer birthdays, it was a fabulous three fun-filled hours to devote to our family.

Meghan’s Trooping the Colour Parade Debut! Royals Celebrate the Queen’s 92nd Birthday

Cheers to another year! Queen Elizabeth II officially celebrated her birthday with a festive parade known as Trooping the Colour on Saturday, June 9.

The monarch, who turned 92 in April, was joined by many members of the royal family, including Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan (née Markle), hot off the heels from their honeymoon to East Africa. Also in attendance were Duchess Kate, Prince William, and two of their three children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Their two-month-old son, Prince Louis, stayed behind.

The royal family gazed on as the 1st Battalion The Coldstream Guards trooped in the queen’s honor. Following the ceremony, the British ruler was escorted back to Buckingham Palace via a carriage ride, where she and the family met up on the balcony to watch a Royal Air Force display. Queen Elizabeth rode solo as Prince Phillip was absent from this year’s event. The Duke of Edinburgh retired from public duties last August and has been dealing with health issues this year.

In total, more than 1,400 soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians participated in the annual parade.

Trooping the Colour marks the first regal event that Meghan, 36, and Harry, 33, have been seen together at in nearly two weeks. Four days after their May 19 nuptials, the couple made their first official appearance as husband and wife at a Buckingham Palace event in Prince Charles’ honor.

Harry stepped out solo for a post-honeymoon workout in photos exclusively published by Us Weekly on Thursday, June 7, in London. “Harry is leaner than ever,” a source told Us Weekly in April, noting that he and Meghan are “both in the best shape of their lives” one month before they exchanged vows.

‘Twin Girls’ North West & Penelope Disick Wear Matching Outfits at Unicorn-Themed Birthday Bash

Party time!

Although North West won’t officially turn 5 until June 15 and Penelope Disick has to wait until July 8 to turn 6, the pair teamed up for a joint unicorn-themed birthday bash on Sunday.

“North and P! Twin girls, turn around!” Kim Kardashian West called out to the cute cousins in a video showing off the pair’s identical rainbow robes and matching bathing suits.

“Happy birthday ladies,” the proud mama continued.

While documenting what she described as “North and Penelope’s unicorn birthday party,” the KKW Beauty mogul made sure to highlight all of party’s sweet treats, which included doughnuts, matching unicorn cakes and rice crispy pops with little unicorn horns and ears.

In one video, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star also confirmed North’s father Kanye West was in town from Wyoming to celebrate the happy occasion.

“Here, come with daddy,” she can be heard saying to her almost 5 year old.

Kardashian West also included videos of the too-cute party decorations, which included “real unicorns,” tables covered in festive balloon centerpieces and rainbow pool toys.

Also present for the happy day was new mom Kylie Jenner, who brought along her 17-year-old daughter Stormi Webster.

Happy birthday North & P,” she captioned a photo of herself and her daughter, who was wearing a sweet white headband, shorts and what appeared to be a Gucci blanket.

North and Penelope’s joint birthday party is shaping up to be an annual Kardashian tradition. Last year the pair enjoyed a Moana-themed celebration, and in 2016 the two girls honored their big days with a mermaid-filled bash.

While North still has over a week before her birthday rolls around, she’s already started receiving presents — specifically two luxury handbags from Alexander Wang!

Sharing a photo of one of her gifts, Kardashian West gushed, “Look at this Wang bag that North got.”

Enthusiastically, she added, “I’m stealing this !!!!!”

We loved your birthday party, sorry you’re not coming to ours

Laura Falin

posted in Life

Confession: attending kids’ birthday parties isn’t my favorite.

I’m not alone in this. They’re loud and noisy and chaotic and sometimes I get bored. I’d rather be home gardening.

But I know this isn’t about me, and the kids have a blast. They get out of the house, often doing something active like bouncing on trampolines or running inflatable obstacle courses or swimming. Also, big, fun parties like that almost always include the entire class, and give the kids more time to make memories with friends and celebrate their buddies’ special occasions. I’m willing to endure a little boredom and even a headache for that.

But we’re not reciprocating.

I have four children. Most of them were born within two weeks of each other, all in the fall when we’re trying to get settled back into school and starting up sports and music and ten million other things. The last kid birthday of the year is right before Christmas. If I tried to do big birthday bashes where I invited the entire class and rented a bouncy house place, I would be 1) completely broke and 2) completely insane.

Even if we’d had fewer kids, or spaced them farther apart during the year, I think we’d be low-key birthday people. I’d rather my kids have a smaller party with some close friends, and actually open and appreciate all their presents (and play with them!) than a large party where they get overwhelmed and exhausted and get more toys than they’ll ever need.

So our kids’ birthday parties consist of a little group of friends. We started inviting the same number of friends as you are years old in preschool, we’ve never gone past five, and we do something simple at home. A tea party, or an outdoor obstacle course using things in our own backyard. A homemade cake and some juice. The whole thing lasts maybe an hour and a half and then everyone goes home.

I think you have to hit one of two extremes with parties. You can either invite just one or two friends from school, as long as it’s done away from the classroom and no one makes a big deal of it, or you can invite the entire class. You can’t go in between. But I do still feel guilty sometimes that a lot of the parties we attend are for kids who won’t be coming to ours.

I’ve heard of some families who pick one year — say, the year your child turns 10 — and they have one giant, all-out bash that year and keep it simple the rest of the time. That seems doable to me. In our family, we celebrate twelfth birthdays with either my husband or me taking a trip on an airplane with the birthday kid. For a long time, I didn’t think we’d ever fly together as a family because of the cost, and I wanted each kid to travel in a plane before they were an adult.

I hope my kids grow up realizing that there are many different ways to celebrate. Different families have different traditions for birthdays and everything else and we can enjoy them all. We don’t have to do everything the same way, and I hope they can find as much joy in small parties as big ones.

What do you think? Is it okay to attend birthday parties and not reciprocate?

In March, the Pandora Jewelry Radiant Shine brand ambassador and mother of two opened up to PEOPLE about how her fashion routine has changed since giving birth to her second child.

“I think there’s something kind of cool to me not having much time,” she said. “It kind of makes my fashion choices, I think better because you end up whooping things together and end up discovering something really cool.”

“I can whoop up a fresh look in like five minutes!” Ciara added, quick to note that sometimes she had to plan her outfits ahead of time “because you’re like, ‘If I don’t think about this then I really don’t know what may happen.’ “

People Thought Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Were Ridiculously Cute in Matching Outfits for the Queen’s Birthday

Prince Harry and bride-to-be Meghan Markle were matching in navy blue at Queen Elizabeth’s star-studded birthday concert Saturday night — and people on social media took notice.

Markle wore a navy Stella McCartney caped dress with matching navy suede heels by Manolo Blahnik and carried a clutch by Naeem Khan. Prince Harry wore a smart navy blue suit. The two stepped out together for this event a little more than a month out from the royal wedding on May 19.

Queen Elizabeth, who turned 92 on Saturday, wore gold to her celebration at Royal Albert Hall.

 

The event was attended by most of the royal family — with one exception being Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, who is expecting her third child on Monday — and members of the public who could snag a ticket. (For those who couldn’t, the concert was broadcast live on BBC One and BBC Radio 2.)

The lineup fit for Her Majesty included Sting and Shaggy (who recently released an album together), Kylie Minogue, Sir Tom Jones, Shawn Mendes, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, the BBC Concert Orchestra, and more.

The event concluded with Queen Elizabeth acknowledging the crowd with a wave, but not before she gave a coy smile (and maybe an eye roll?) during a speech made by her son Prince Charles after he addressed her as “Your Majesty” and then “Mummy.”

Bobby Flay Celebrates His Daughter Sophie’s Birthday with Adorable Throwback Photos

Bobby Flay is one proud dad.

The Food Network Star host celebrated his daughter Sophie’s 22nd birthday on Monday like any other father would—with a series of sweet throwback photos, of course.

“Happy Birthday to this adorable one @soophly .. 22 years ago today you let the world know you were here..” Flay, 53, wrote on a childhood picture of his only child with his second wife, Kate Connelly.

The chef followed up with another baby photo of Sophie and one from her “teen time”, calling the college senior “my favorite girl in the world.”

Flay is often gushing about his stunning daughter on his Instagram account. In March, he celebrated International Women’s Day by posting a photo of Sophie with the caption, “Best daughter of all time.”

Subtract 266 days from your birthday. Notice anything in particular?

by

Sara McGinnis

posted in Life

A little bit of math might just reveal a bit more about your parents than you care to know. For example, one person recently subtracted 266 days (the average length of human gestation) from their birthday and landed on April 15. Tax day. Their father is an accountant.

Sounds like somebody’s parents were celebrating putting another year in the books with a little baby-making!

Now it’s your turn. If you’re a whiz just compute 266 days from your birthdate. If, like me, you need a little help figuring it out, click here, change the date to your birthday and look for your result.

The comments pouring in from Reddit users who checked on their own date of conception are hilarious (and naturally a bit on the inappropriate side…

Mine was an AT&T service outages. My dad works for AT&T. WTF.

Apparently turkey wasn’t the only thing that was getting stuffed on my day.

I was a Thanksgiving conception too. The Packers also beat the Lions that day (my family is from Wisconsin). Looks like conditions were perfect for baby making.

Parents anniversary, go figure.

February 22nd… That’s my mother’s birthday.

30 December 1982, SEVERAL f–ing months before my parents married. I’m 28…Why haven’t I ever done that math. Back later, phone calls to be made.

November 8th. Looks like my parents liked to rock the vote.

December 23ish… that was totally Christmas sex, wasn’t it?

Super awkward, but then again we all have to thank our parents for having sex at least once, right?

Subtracting from my birthday turned up a conception date in early August of 1980 that I can’t correlate with anything in particular. For my kids it’s a little more interesting (and cringeworthy).

The math confirms we conceived our second son exactly three weeks before our firstborn’s first birthday. I can still remember how exhausted I was at his party. Not super embarrassing, but dang. We sure didn’t wait long to go for number two!

Here’s hoping our firstborn never bothers to do the math though, because he may never think of New Year’s Eve the same way again…which is also my husband’s birthday. Maybe some things are best left unknown.

Notice anything about your or your kids’ dates of conception?

Paddy McGuinness’s wife Christine is all smiles as she jets away for her 30th birthday

PADDY McGuinness’ wife Christine looked flawless as she flashed her abs as she prepared to fly off to celebrate her 30th birthday.

She was full of smiles on the way to the airport as the couple move on from the Nicole Appleton drama of recent weeks.

She wore a black cropped hooded sweater and matching jogging bottoms for the outing, flashing her toned tummy as she pulled her suitcase along.

Christine looked happy and relaxed, just weeks after reconciling with Paddy, 44, following his cosy night out in London with All Saints singer Nicole, 43.

The outing comes after The Sun on Sunday exclusively revealed how Christine could lift the lid on the drama during an appearance on Loose Women.

And as well as her upcoming stint on The Real Housewives Of Cheshire, Christine’s TV career could be given a boost with a permanent role on the ITV panel show if she impresses.

We revealed how ITV chiefs are considering the model-turned-reality TV star as a regular panellist.

And a TV source said: “Bosses are really excited to see how Christine comes across on Loose Women and are already discussing a more permanent role for her.

“They believe her no-nonsense Northern charm is exactly what the show needs.

“Loose Women is always looking to add to its panellists and Christine couldn’t be hotter property right now.”


Last month, The Sun exclusively revealed how Christine would be joining ITVBe reality show, The Real Housewives of Cheshire.

The model’s decision to let cameras into her home comes after she was devastated by snaps of her husband with his arm around Nicole in London’s Soho.

A TV insider said: “Christine has been given the chance to be in the spotlight.

Christine has joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Cheshire, but Paddy will not feature on the programme

“She has been through a tough since feeling betrayed by Paddy and is looking forward to having a new focus.

“It’s not great news for Paddy who’s already seen enough of his private life scrutinised.

“She’s already filmed some scenes.”

It has since been revealed the Take Me Out host will not appear in the show alongside his wife.

Cath Kidston is celebrating its 25th birthday in the best possible way

And we’re here for it.

Cath Kidston

Cath Kidston prints have been a staple of British homes for as long as we can remember. In fact we can’t imagine life without her spotted cake stands and floral mugs. But it’s the Cath Kidston fashion collection that really gets us going – from the vintage style tea dresses to the dreamy cotton PJs.

And let’s not forget the amazing Cath Kidston collaborations with Disney – we are still dreaming about the Peter Pan and 101 Dalmatians ranges.

Soon to be turning 25, Cath Kidston is marking its quarter century in the best possible way – releasing a brand new collectable product range – and we definitely approve.

Yes, that’s right. The Cath Kidston team has released limited edition pieces – and we want them all.

From jumpers embroidered with 1993 (Cath Kidston’s launch date) to the creation of a 25th Anniversary clutch (featuring the original shop front), the new pieces all have meaning behind them, mixing all of her famous prints, from the Queen’s guards and Union Jacks to the classic rose pattern.

Here are some of our top favourite pieces…

Cath Kidston

25th Birthday Shop Clutch, £48.

Cath Kidston

Big Birthday Party Dress £75.

Cath Kidston

Birthday Stripe Leather Cross Body Bag, £85

Cath Kidston

Birthday Stripe Pleated Skirt, £55

Cath Kidston

Button Spot Guards PJ Set £55

Cath Kidston

Embroidered Birthday jumper, £70

And it’s not just fashion – the new collection covers everything from mugs and cushions to luggage tags and washbags.

When did Cath Kidston start?

‘It all started with Cath’s eye for colour and design and her love for vintage prints,’ the Cath Kidston team explained in a video to mark its 25th birthday. ‘Cath tried all sorts of jobs from dog walker to model, florist to interior designer, before she hit on the idea, for what became Cath Kidston – Established London 1993.’

The brand was established in London’s Holland Park, selling car boot finds and vintage fabric before she began to create her own Modern Vintage designs – her first being floral ironing boards and statement wallpaper. Almost 25 years later, the brand now has over 200 stores worldwide and has become synonymous with classic British design, internationally famous for unique floral prints and bright, playful patterns.

‘It was hard work,’ the team explained in their video. ‘Our first catalogue was made by hand, our first store was in London so we did mail order. Now we have stores up and down the country and we are spreading the Best of British around the world.’

Here’s to the next 25 years Cath Kidston! Now please excuse us while we go spend all of our money on this new collection.

Woman Celebrates Her 109th Birthday By Partying With the Harlem Globetrotters

Virginia McLaurin just celebrated her 109th birthday by hanging out with the Harlem Globetrotters, proving that having a rollicking good time definitely has no age limit.

McLaurin may be best known to the world as the woman who went viral for having a dance party with the Obamas during a visit to the White House on her 106th birthday. For this birthday, however, she chose to celebrate at Brightwood Elementary in Washington D.C.. According to the Huffington Post, the Globetrotters gave her a pretty sweet birthday gift: a basketball jersey numbered 109 and a donation of 109 tickets to Globetrotter games given in her name to local underprivileged youth.

The photo zoomed in on Stormi’s pink sweater, which featured a red heart with the word “DADDY” in the middle. “Her favorite [parental] unit of course,” he quipped. The musician also showered the Lip Kit maven with flower arrangements on Thursday, just a few days after it was revealed that he bought her a black Ferrari as a push present.

While Jenner is wearing a ring on that finger in the new Instagram photos, a source recently told Us Weekly that she’s in no rush to get engaged to Scott. “Kylie is doing great and is just so happy,” the insider told Us exclusively in February. “Engagement isn’t super important to Kylie. Travis could ask her, but it’s not something that is a major priority. She is just loving starting a family with this person.”

The couple welcomed their 8 pound, 9-ounce child at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles at 4:43 p.m. on February 1. She announced Stormi’s arrival on Instagram on February 4, writing, “Pregnancy has been the most beautiful, empowering, and life changing experience I’ve had in my entire life and I’m actually going to miss it. I appreciate my friends and especially my family for helping me make this special moment as private as we could. … I’ve never felt love and happiness like this i could burst! Thank you for understanding.”

The beauty mogul and Scott began dating in April 2017, just a few weeks after her split from longtime boyfriend Tyga.

17 Dr. Seuss quotes to use in an Instagram caption on Friday, the author’s birthday

17 Dr. Seuss quotes to use in an Instagram caption on Friday, the author’s birthday


17 Dr. Seuss quotes to use in an Instagram caption on Friday, the author’s birthday

It doesn’t matter how old you are or where or how you grew up — chances are, Dr. Seuss was probably a huge part of your childhood. Whether you were all about The Cat in The Hat or preferred The Grinch, you probably have a favorite book of his that you can’t wait to read to the kids in your life someday. And now that his birthday is almost here — on March 2nd — it’s the perfect time to honor him on social media. And just in case you’re looking for them, there are so many Dr. Suess quotes to use in an Instagram caption that it’ll be hard to pick just one.

If Dr. Seuss was still alive today, he’d be turning 114 years old. And if he’d never been born at all, how would any of us have survived childhood without the words of wisdom in Oh, The Places You’ll Go?

Here are some of the best Dr. Seuss quotes to use as a caption in an Instagram post today.

Whether you’re paying tribute to Dr. Seuss or just looking for an inspirational or fun caption for your pics, this man and his genius will never disappoint — and your friends will probably thank you for bringing back such great childhood memories.

1. When you want to remind people of his mission

“You’re never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.”

2. One of the wisest things he’s ever said

“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”

3. It’s so important to live in the moment

“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.”

4. A reminder to be thankful, even though your life isn’t perfect

“It’s a troublesome world. The people who’re in it are troubled with troubles almost every minute. You ought to be thankful, a whole heaping lot. For the people and places you’re lucky you’re not.”

5. On being yourself

“Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

6. On trying new things

“You’ll never be bored when you try something new. There’s really no limit to what you can do!”

7. One of his most famous quotes of all

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”

8. If you’re still growing (and all of us are)

“It’s not about what it is, it’s about what it can become.”

9. On the importance of nonsense

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living.”

10. Only you can control the way you think

“Your mind is a garden, your thoughts are seeds. You can grow flowers, or you can grow weeds.”

11. And only you are in charge of your imagination

“Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!”

12. A quote that feels especially relevant these days

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”

13. Remembering that it’s okay not to be the best all the time

“Wherever you fly, you’ll be the best of the best. Wherever you go, you will top all the rest. Except when you don’t. Because sometimes you won’t.”

14. On never giving up

“Don’t give up. I believe in you all. A person’s a person, no matter how small.”

15. The only real way to come out on top

“You have to be odd to be number one.”

16. Oh, the places you’ll go

“You’re off to great places, today is your day. Your mountain is waiting so… get on your way!”

17. On being intentional in everything you do

“Step with care and great tact. And remember that life’s a great balancing act.”

Happy birthday, Dr. Seuss. We’ll never forget you.

Today would have been Kurt Cobain’s 51st birthday, and Courtney Love shared an emotional tribute


Today would have been Kurt Cobain’s 51st birthday, and Courtney Love shared an emotional tribute

Early on Tuesday, February 20th, Courtney Love shared an emotional tribute to Kurt Cobain on her Instagram and Twitter accounts. The musician was best known for his work with Nirvana, and passed away in 1994 at the age of 27. February 20th would have been Kurt Cobain’s 51st birthday.

Love shared a short, sweet, and heartbreaking message to her late husband on social media.

She posted an intimate black and white photograph of the two cuddling, sometime in the early ’90s. “Happy birthday, baby,” Love captioned it, “God, I miss you.” It’s not clear when exactly the photo was taken, or by whom, or what they were doing at the time. But just from looking at it, you can tell it’s an authentic, honest portrait of a couple in love.

The two were married from 1992-1994, and shared a deep connection.

Cobain even helped produce an album with Love’s band, Hole. They lived together, attended events together, and shared daughter Frances Bean Cobain, whom the Nirvana frontman absolutely adored. Frances Bean, now 25, posted her own tribute to her late father on Instagram. “I hope they don’t have the internet wherever you are; I feel like that would be counterproductive,” she wrote, “Regardless, Happy Birthday to an angel.”

happy birthday baby god I miss you

A post shared by Courtney Love Cobain (@courtneylove) on

Frances Bean was just a toddler when her father passed, and every photo of the two of them together is more heartwarming than the last. Whether they were playing with kittens together, just hanging out, or on the red carpet together, the father-daughter duo was an early ’90s inspiration.

After the Nirvana frontman passed away, Love did not remarry; and she’s been using the name Courtney Love Cobain for some time. Frances, who works as an artist and model, is now divorced from Isaiah Silva, and recently celebrated two years of sobriety.

Our thoughts are with Courtney and Frances on this emotional day.

Britney Spears gets birthday tribute from boyfriend

OHMYGOSSIP — Britney Spears’ boyfriend thinks he is the “luckiest man on this planet”.
The ‘Toxic’ hitmaker has been dating Sam Asghari since they met last year on the set of her music video for ‘Slumber Party’ and the hunky model paid a touching tribute to the singer – who has sons Sean Preston, 12, and Jayden, 11, with ex-husband Kevin Federline – on her 36th birthday on Saturday (02.12.17).
He shared a video of her blowing out the candles on her birthday cupcakes alongside a rose petal heart, and wrote on Instagram: “HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY ONE AND ONLY,” he wrote. “Thank you for being you, thank you for showing me the true meaning of a beautiful woman and a strong mother, and most of all thank you for being mine. I consider myself the luckiest man on this planet @britneyspears #luckiestmanalive.(sic)”
Britney also received a birthday tribute from Madonna, who posted a video of herself covering her ‘Me Against the Music’ duet partner’s classic song ‘Toxic’ before sending well-wishes for her special day.
Captioning the video, Madonna wrote: “Silence =Death! … Song For World AIDS Day! … #toxic #poisonparadise @britneyspears. Happy Birthday!! (sic)”
And in response, the ‘Womanizer’ hitmaker was motivated to share a video of herself covering Elvis Presley’s ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’.
She captioned her clip: “I was really inspired yesterday by @madonna’s post. She’s right… silence = death! These words really stuck with me, because they are so true.
“I’ve always wanted to do a performance like this… singing in a pretty little black dress, with a simple 360, one take shot! I figured since it was my birthday, why not go for it?! So boom When the clock struck 12:00, I did it!!!
“Thank you all for the beautiful birthday wishes, and for letting me do what I love. I appreciate you more than you will ever know!!!! (sic)”

Miley Cyrus Slams Fans Who Said She Looked Pregnant in Birthday Photo: ‘RUDE!!!’

Miley Cyrus is denying rumors that she is pregnant after fans claimed she had a baby bump in a photo she posted of her pre-birthday celebrations.

Cyrus, who turned 25 on Thursday, addressed the rumors that same day in a tweet, writing, “RUDE!!! Not pregnant just eating a s— ton of tufurkey.”

The singer posted the same photo she shared on Wednesday, except this time she drew a red arrow to her belly where fans thought she had a baby bump.

The Voice coach didn’t let the rumors get to her though — she continued celebrating her birthday with longtime love Liam Hemsworth, posting a photo of herself winking at the camera with her tongue out on Thursday.

 

“Lili turnt the birthday party !” She wrote in the caption. “Blingin rainbow hoops ! He says there’s more comin! Hehe! 🌈💕🌈💕🌈💕

Cyrus also shared a photo of herself as a child, sporting a wide, happy grin and writing, “Birthday Mood !”

The “Malibu” singer received an early birthday present from Hemsworth, 27, on Wednesday night — a custom gold necklace that revealed the nickname she calls the actor.

 

“My man killin the game already! This is just pressie #1! Thank you Lili! @LiamHemsworth,” Cyrus captioned a photo of a rainbow pendant that read “lili” in cursive font along with a thin gold chain.

This isn’t the first time a piece of jewelry on the couple has gained fans’ attention.

The duo sparked marriage rumors earlier this month after they were seen taking a stroll in Savannah, Georgia, wearing strategically placed metallic rings, although they have yet to tie the knot.

In addition, Cyrus has been wearing the same Neil Lane diamond ring Hemsworth gave her during their first engagement in 2012, even though she told Ellen DeGeneres it’s not quite her style.

“This is really weird, because this is like real jewelry and most of my jewelry is made out of gummy bears and cotton candy … they don’t look that good together because they kind of mix up,” she said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2016. “So sometimes I replace it with an actual unicorn or a Looney Tune. And kind of like, What’s going on?  I am like, This isn’t really my aesthetic, but I’ll wear it because you love me.”

Thanks to my son’s 1st birthday party I learned my engagement ring was fake

by

Becky Vieira

posted in Life

I never intended to throw my son an outlandish 1st birthday party. And I didn’t.

At least I don’t think it got to the point of extravagant. But my budget did fall by the wayside somewhere between the make-your-own-gift-bag station and the caterer.

I’m not sorry. It was more than a first birthday party. We moved during my pregnancy and our baby shower had to be cancelled. I had extreme postpartum depression after my son’s birth and we lost a lot of his first year. This may have been just a birthday party in the technical sense, but the reality was so much more.

We never veered into territory we couldn’t afford, but let’s be honest…who enjoys spending money if they don’t have to? As our guest list and budget continued to grow, I had an idea to help offset the costs.

“I’m going to sell my engagement ring,” I told my husband.

woman wears engagement ring

I wasn’t talking about the ring he gave me, the one I proudly wear on my left hand and never take off. I meant the engagement ring from my ex-husband. A ring I forgot I even had until my mom stumbled across it the week prior when she was cleaning out a closet.

My first marriage wasn’t good for either of us. I don’t have much left from that period of my life; I donated my wedding dress years ago. The ring remained because I never knew what to do with it, then I honestly forgot about it. I’d stashed it at my parents’ house and moved on.

My ex-husband never wanted it back and there wasn’t much use for it. Selling it, taking this last piece of my old life to move forward with my new existence, felt cathartic. And symbolic.

The manner in which my ex-husband once spoke about the ring led me to believe we’d be able to sell it. We didn’t think we’d get rich from it, or even pay for the party in its entirety. But thought it may help. We decided to donate the bulk and keep a little to cover the excess of our party budget.

Since it was already at my parents’ house my mom offered to take the ring to an appraiser. It seemed easy enough, and off I went to investigate mobile petting zoos.

A few days later she called me, frazzled and making no sense. I had completely forgotten about the ring, and suffer from extreme anxiety. I, of course, just assumed someone died. After she calmed me down I realized her hysterics were due to shock, not sadness.

“Are you sitting down for this? You better sit down,” she counseled me. “The ring is fake.”

I was speechless. My mind flashed back to the day my ex-husband got down on one knee in front of me, presenting me a ring that had a fairly sizable diamond. I’m not talking Liz Taylor-big, but much bigger than I ever wanted or expected.

Or the day his mom suddenly pulled a jeweler’s magnifying glass out of her kitchen cabinet (why she had that I’ll never know, and I learned it’s called an “eye loupe” — in case you were wondering) and peered at my ring. “It’s a very good stone, just one small flaw,” she said with an authority she didn’t really have. Okay, great, I thought. It didn’t matter to me, I was just happy to be engaged to the man I loved.

How I discovered I was given a fake engagement ring

Back in present time I was stunned. I wasn’t angry. I wasn’t upset with him for buying a fake diamond, I wanted to know why he didn’t tell me. The truth is that I’d have been happy with a cigar band.

I knew it wasn’t a financial reason. Did that then mean he’d never loved me? Was he planning to tell me one day? Maybe he wanted to wait and see if the marriage lasted a few years, then swap it out one night while I was sleeping.

My worst fear was that he never had any faith in me or the marriage from the start. The questions and assumptions raced through my mind.

It wasn’t the ring, it wasn’t the stone. It was the deceit. The big charade. He asked me to be his partner in everything, for the rest of our lives, while starting that life off with deception. What did that say about the rest of our marriage?

I suppose that’s another reason why it ended.

I resumed party planning. We paid for it all ourselves and still made that donation. I did have a few days where I felt like I’d been the butt of some big joke, one everyone was in on but me. And then I looked at my son.

I knew that I was where I was supposed to me, with the man I was meant to end up with. A man who has also promised me to be forthcoming if he ever gifts me with fake diamonds in the future.

Would you be surprised to learn your engagement ring was fake? Would you be angry or just sad?

Happy Birthday Kris Jenner! Kim Kardashian West and Khloé Kardashian Share Sweet and Sassy Tributes to Their Mom

Happy birthday to reality TV’s main mom!

On Sunday, Kris Jenner turned 62 and, to celebrate, her daughters shared sweet — and sassy — Instagram tributes to their mother.

“Happy Birthday to my best friend @krisjenner,” daughter Kim Kardashian West wrote alongside a recent selfie of the two women showing off their blonde hair. “Couldn’t have asked for a better mom! Literally don’t know how you do it and manage us all and be the best grandma and have the best outlook on life! I’m so grateful for you!!! Love you so much!”

And Khloé Kardashian joined in on the birthday love sharing a series of adorable photos of Kris — including one in which the famous momager was dressed up like a mime. Bible.

“Happy birthday mama!! You truly are a superhero in my eyes,” Khloé wrote. “Everything that you do, all the people you take care of and make sure are ok daily, the boss moves you make! I can’t fathom how you do it all and still manage to look so f—fabulous!”

Continued Khloé, “If I get to be an ounce of who you are then I will be proud of myself!! I love you madly mom! Today and everyday you are Queen of the world bring on the martinis.”

A post shared by Khloé (@khloekardashian) on Nov 5, 2017 at 8:53am PST

And like a true momager, Kris thanked all of her fans for their birthday wishes by reminding them to tune into watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians on Sunday night.

“Thank you for all of your sweet and thoughtful birthday messages!!” she wrote alongside a still from Sunday’s KUWTK episode. “Wishing all of you a beautiful Sunday. Can’t wait to celebrate with a brand new episode of #KUWTK tonight!! This week, I’m visiting @khloekardashian in Cleveland! ❤ #family #love”

And even though the rest of Kris’ famous daughters haven’t wished their mother a happy birthday on social media yet, they’re all together — and documenting their recent junk food purchases on Snapchat.

“This is not an ad,” Khloé wrote alongside a picture documenting their indulgences, which included Pringles, Funyuns, and powdered donuts.

And Kim made sure to point out she’d picked up a pack of her favorite treat, Haribo gummy bears.

Meanwhile, Kylie Jenner shared some behind the scenes snaps of her sisters trying out a Snapchat filter.

“Fav filter of all time,” Kylie said about the faux-glasses, as Kourtney leaned in close to her younger sister so could get into the frame too.

It’s unclear where the KarJenner women are headed, but Kylie teased on the social media site, “GIRLS TRIP.”

Photos: 3-year-old has epic Target birthday party

by

Melissa Willets

posted in Parenting

We know moms love Target. But 3-year-old Charlie Kern loves the big red bullseye so much, she asked her mom Emily for a Target birthday party.

“I started asking Charlie in January what type of party she wanted and the first thing out of her mouth was Target,” Kern told BabyCenter. “I tried to get her to want something else like Trolls and such but she wasn’t having it!”

And so, the Pennsylvania-based mom gave Charlie what she wanted, and planned an epic Target-themed party.

Obviously, Charlie dressed in red for her big day, as did her parents.

Target birthday party family

Kern took the Target theme all the way! Charlie’s party was indeed epic, complete with a Targetesque cafe.

Target birthday party cafe

The party also featured a homemade cake adorned with bullseye logos, and of course, red-and-white everything.

Target birthday party cake

“People thought it was hilarious that she wanted that kind of party, and knew we were gonna do it, but when they showed up and saw how it all played out, they loved it!” Kern told us about guests’ reactions to the Target birthday party. She added, “Charlie herself was so excited. She woke up from nap to a decorated house and just walked around so excited yelling ‘Yay Target! It’s my party, it’s my Target!'”

Target birthday party

One especially creative touch was Kern’s dollar section, in which she filled bins with items like bubbles and candy for Charlie’s friends to fill their goody bags, donated by her local Target!

Kern says Charlie’s reaction made all of the planning worth it. As for why her little girl is Target-obsessed, this mama’s best guess is that when Charlie was born prematurely at 28 weeks, and it was too cold for her to take her outside, Kern would, obvi, tote her newborn to Target when she needed to get out of the house.

What mom can’t relate to these types of life-saving Target runs? Here’s wishing Charlie a very happy third birthday, and um, do you mind if we steal this adorable birthday party idea?

Is your child Target obsessed too?

Inside the Stunning Resort Kim Kardashian West Chose for Her Birthday Trip

Where do you go for a laid-back birthday trip? Well, if you’re Kim Kardashian and you’re turning 37, you go to Amangiri Resort, a remote spot in Canyon Point, Utah. (You may remember that stylish British It girl Lucy Williams Instagrammed from the same resort just last week.)

Kardashian posted several photos on Instagram Stories, captioning one of them: “Most relaxing bday trip! #Amangiri.” One look at the property, and it’s easy to see why Kardashian chose it: The tranquil desert landscape looks like the perfect place to unwind (and show off your new swimsuit).

“Amangiri’s geometric planes are hued with ochre, yellow and pink to blend with the cliff curve it sits within,” the resort’s website reads. “Each Suite features a large living area that opens onto a terrace offering Utah desert views that change color by the hour.” Ready to feel inspired? We rounded up some of our favorite images of the resort below.

112-Year-Old Woman Celebrates Birthday with a Beer — and Shares Her Secret to Longevity

To celebrate a rare milestone, one supercentenarian who still knows how to party made sure she had one of her favorite things to mark the occasion: beer.

The Sunday before her 112th birthday on October 18, Lucy Trecasse—the eighth oldest living person in the United States—celebrated with friends and family at Lund Care Center in Cabot, Pennsylvania. Trecasse spends much of her time at the center knitting, sewing or playing bingo (her favorite). Yet, every so often, she’ll open a bottle of beer, just as she did for her birthday, sharing a glass with a friend. She has long been a fan of the adult beverage—her family even brewed beer to sell to friends during Prohibition—and when asked exactly how long she has liked it, Trecasse beams with excitement.

“All my life! 112!” Trecasse tells PEOPLE. “My dad gave me a taste of beer when I was a kid, he just gave me a taste and I liked it.”

Treccase was born in Foxburg, Pennsylvania, in 1905, the year Albert Einstein introduced his Theory of Relativity, Theodore Roosevelt was inaugurated as the 26th president of the United States and the life expectancy for a woman was just 50 years old.

“There were no automobiles then. We had nothing, just a horse and wagon,” Trecasse remembers. “People came around at 4:00 and lit the lanterns on the street corners. Lamps were all we had to see by and do our homework, no electricity. It was difficult, but I survived!”

Her family was one of the first households in her area to purchase a radio, which they used listened to the nation’s first commercial radio station, KDKA. Treccase still listens to the station and their host, Marty Griffin, almost every morning.

Trecasse graduated at the top of her class at Butler High and worked as a secretary at Standard Steel Car Co., according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, becoming one of the only people from her class to land a job out of high school (something she remains proud of to this day).

She married her husband, Joseph Treccase—a doctor and World War I veteran who had an office in Pennsylvania—in 1928. She still remembers the night she was at a friend’s party and Joseph was apprehensive to approach her.

“He asked my girlfriend how old I was—he thought I wasn’t old enough to party! He finally got up nerve enough to ask me to a date,” Trecasse says. “He said he was off on Wednesday afternoon and that he was free to take me on a ride in the country. I think he had an automobile, one of the few.”

Joseph later served in World War II, and the couple was married for 52 years until his death in 1980.

At 112, Trecasse—who also seems to love to color pink just as much as she loves beer—still has some tricks up her sleeve, like reciting the alphabet backward in a matter of seconds (and she does it right on cue over the phone).

“I started when I was 4 years old, my dad made me and my brother say it backward,” she recalls. “He was our teacher. He made us learn it backward and forwards.”

Having lived so long, Trecasse has been asked many times about her secret to a long life. When it comes to that, she has two key suggestions.

“Don’t smoke!” she says. “I did not smoke, we drank milk!”

TV legend Sir David Attenborough reveals he wants to keep presenting past his 100th birthday — despite being on television for the past 65 years

TELLY legend Sir David Attenborough is planning to carry on broadcasting past his 100th birthday.

The 91-year-old is not considering retirement with a packed schedule of nature documentaries on the way.

It has been 65 years since Sir David Attenborough joined BBC television in 1952
BBC

His new series Blue Planet 2 hits our screens on Sunday. Sir David said: “I see no reason whatsoever why I can’t live past 100.

“Earth has enough wonders to make more than three Planet Earth series.”

He also has films prepared on ants, extinct sea-dragons, eggs and the elephant that inspired Disney film Dumbo. He added: “The beauty of natural history programmes is they can appeal across all ages and all conditions and people can take out of it their own particular interests.”

Sir David has already spent 65 years on TV. He has journeyed to some of the most remote parts of the planet, come face-to-face with cannibals and spent time with a colony of gorillas.

Blake Lively Says Daughter Inez Is a ‘Baby Viking’ Who Marked Her First Birthday By Feasting on Steaks

Blake Lively has a “baby Viking” on her hands.

The All I See Is You actress, 30, gave updates on her daughters, James, 2½, and 12-month-old Inez, during her appearance on Friday’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and shared that her youngest child with husband Ryan Reynolds has an appetite for red meat.

Recently, the couple celebrated Inez’s first birthday party, during which the “little chunky one” had a more adult choice of meal.

“I made a Cookie Monster cake … and she just looked at it and reached for a steak,” Lively told host Jimmy Fallon of her toddler, who she nicknamed “baby Viking.”

“She was hand-fisting two steaks. Her sleeves were dripping in blood from steak,” the proud mom added, later making a Game of Thrones joke: “It’s like she’s a White Walker.” (White Walkers are zombie-like supernatural beings known as the most villains in the HBO series.)

PEOPLE confirmed Lively and Reynolds welcomed their second child in September 2016.

Along with celebrating Inez’s birthday, the parents of two are looking forward to her first Halloween. And older sister James has some choice costumes.

“My daughter was like, ‘I’m going to be Cinderella.’ And I said, ‘Oh, that’s so special. Does baby Nessie get to be Elsa?” Lively recalled asking her oldest, who responded: “‘No, Mike Wazowski.’ From Monsters Inc. – the one-eyed, round monster.”

Back in December 2016, James and Inez made their public debut together at their famous father’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony. The event was also the first time the family of four had ever been photographed together at a public event.

Reynolds previously told PEOPLE, “If I could have nine daughters I would be thrilled. My kids, fortunately, they have both of our genes.”

9 best birthday gift ideas for a 6-year-old boy

by

Sabrina Garibian

posted in Products

Just call me the gift-giving ninja. I love coming up with unique, fun and practical gifts for every birthday. My 6-year-old had just one item on his birthday gift list: a tiny notebook that could fit in his pocket so he could write notes whenever he wanted. Since I knew friends and family would be asking us for gift ideas, I decided to use my ninja skills to come up with a list of 11 best birthday gift ideas for a 6-year-old boy.

Whether the 6-year-old in your life is into riding his bike or playing video games, I bet he would like every item on this birthday gift list.

9 best birthday gift ideas for a 6-year-old boy

9 best birthday gift ideas for a 6-year-old boy

1. Laser X (Target, $ 44.99)

laser x birthday gift ideas

This is similar to the laser tag of our childhoods, but better. The laser and vest light up with every hit, and it’s a fun way to encourage children to run around. I’ve always been against any toy that even slightly resembles a gun, but after seeing my son’s sweaty and happy face after a quick round of Laser X I’m so glad someone gave him this game. It works with other sets too, so more than two people can play together.

2. Colorblock Zip Hoodie (Tea Collection, $ 49.50 – but keep your eye out for sales!)

birthday gift ideas colorblock zip hoodie

 

My kids have reached the age where they want to wear activewear, but I still like them to look polished and dressed well. While clothes don’t seem like a fun birthday gift, they can be! The key is to find out what the child likes. I still remember how fun it was to wear a new outfit for the first time after a year in the same clothes.

3. LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS Desert Lightning (Amazon, $ 15.99)

lego nexo knights birthday gift ideas

We are a LEGO-obsessed household. I love LEGO sets that my six year old can do in about an hour that also provide tons of entertainment. Sets that have any time of movement and are under 300 pieces fit that bill, including this NEXO KNIGHTS set. For only $ 16 it comes with two vehicles that are fun to build.

4. Dig It Up! Dinosaur Eggs (Amazon, $ 24.95 for 12 eggs)

dino eggs birthday gift ideas

This set comes with 12 eggs individually wrapped with their own little chisels. If you’re having a boring Saturday afternoon, these eggs are sure to spice things up. You chisel away at the egg until you find the plastic dinosaur in the middle. Be aware that they make a mess so we usually use a tray or a bowl to contain the dust. These have been a hit in our household for years now, so consider them a great birthday gift idea for any preschool or elementary school aged child.

5. Classic Operation Game (Amazon, $ 16.44)

operation game birthday gift idea

Operation is a great game to practice those fine motor skills. They now sell many different versions, but my kids prefer the classic Operation game.

6. Blankie Tails Shark Blanket (Amazon, $ 34.95)

blankie tails

Every Friday night we have this tradition of snuggling under blankets, making a ton of popcorn and watching a movie. This shark blanket is so cozy and fun. You slide in like a sleeping bag, and if you need to walk somewhere your feet can fit comfortably in the tail to walk around.

7. The Original Stomp Rocket Jr. Glow (Amazon, $ 16)

best birthday gift idea

You stomp to launch these rockets into the sky, and this glow version is so fun to play with at dusk. We can all play with this for hours without getting tired of watching the rockets soar.

8. UNO card game (Amazon, $ 5.62)

uno best birthday gift ideas

UNO is a great family game. It says it’s appropriate for ages 7+, but as long as your child knows his numbers it’s an easy game to learn. I love that it’s easy to pack along in my purse for unexpected times we need to wait, and it’s an easy way to bond as a family. I will often find my husband and six year old playing a quick game of UNO before bed.

9. Hikeport Waterproof Mid Boots (KEEN, $ 75)

best birthday gift ideas

Don’t you get excited about new shoes? My kids get so excited about new shoes. These boots are waterproof, lightweight and comfortable but fashionable enough to wear with jeans.

I hope this list of birthday gift ideas for your 6-year-old boy helps you on your next gift buying adventure.

TOWIE’S Georgia Kousoulou, Yazmin Oukhellou, Chloe Sims and Lauren Pope step out for a Marbella dinner to celebrate the birthday of one of the show’s newbies, Maddie Hooper.

The Essex reality stars looked their glamorous best for the evening’s events, showing off their well-earned all-over tans in sexy outfits.

Tommy Mallet’s girlfriend Georgia, 26, put her toned middle on display by going for a skin-coloured crop top and skirt combo with strappy heels.

DJ Lauren , 34, went for a more edgy vibe with her slashed white top, matching her heels, and belted black jeans.

Meanwhile the other two of the friendship group went for attention-grabbing dresses.

Yazmin, 23 – who’s dating James Lock – wore a pale pink military-style dress, while Chloe, 34, chose a shoulderless red dress.

All the ladies looked coiffed perfectly, too, which is no surprise considering they’ve all been spotted at various Marbella salons this week.

With them for the evening was birthday girl Maddie and the other Towie newbie for series 21, Ruby Lacey.

Dax Shepard Pays Tribute to ‘the Greatest Wife, Mother (of Dragons) & Friend’ Kristen Bell on Her Birthday

Happy birthday, Kristen Bell!

The actress turned 37 on Tuesday, and hubby Dax Shepard was just one of several friends and costars who shared love and well wishes on social media.

Shepard, 42, took to Twitter to gush over his wife, writing, “On this day, many moons ago, the greatest wife, mother(of dragons) and friend arrived. HAPPY BIRTHDAY my .”

Ellen DeGeneres also got in on the fun with a montage video of Bell’s many appearances on talk show. (Who can ever forget the time DeGeneres, 59, gave us a very real sense of how much Bell loves sloths?)

Bell’s The Good Place costar Ted Danson, 69, also shared an adorable Twitter tribute to the actress: “Any place or thing in the universe can be up to 104% perfect. That’s how you got @IMKristenBell. Happy Birthday, KB!”

It was just another shower of love from Danson, who previously told PEOPLE he “just adore” his costar because she is “spectacular” and “gorgeous.”

It’s been a celebratory week all around for Bell, who celebrated the return of Game of Thrones on Sunday with a delicious buffet of Westeros-themed treats including Wildling Wings and “Dragon Eggs” (a.k.a. colorful deviled eggs).

Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith Celebrate Son Jaden Smith’s 19th Birthday with Epic Throwbacks

Jaden Smith turned 19 on Saturday, and his family celebrated with a series of painfully cute photos from his childhood.

Mom Jada Pinkett Smith kicked things off with a throwback photo of Jaden in what looks like a sunflower costume, praising her son’s style and calling Jaden her “treasure.”

“Jaden, you’ve always had style,” the 45-year-old Girls Trip star wrote in the post’s caption. “Happy 19th my treasure. I love you.”

Dad Will Smith was right behind her. Last year he wrote a sweet Facebook post for his son, saying that he’s “still tryna figure out what the hell  doing.” (An old picture of the 47-year-old actor scratching his head while holding baby Jaden accompanied the message).

This year the proud papa took to Facebook again, also posting a very sweet photo of baby Jaden sitting on Smith’s lap. This caption cleverly read, “Happy Birthday, Jaden.19 today! I’ma have to sit on your lap from here on out.” 

Sister Willow, 16, threw her brother some love too. 

“Happy Birthday Big-Bro,” she wrote on Instagram, alongside a childhood photo of Jaden.

Jaden, a rapper and actor, performed with his sister Willow on Friday ahead of his big day at the Sagebrush Catina, a Mexican bar and restaurant in Calabasas, California, E! News reported.

For his 18th birthday, Jaden also released “LABOR V2,” a rap song with a jazzy backtrack, to commemorate his becoming a legal adult.

Though his Netflix series The Get Down has been canceled, Jaden is still staying busy. He’s currently filming a new movie called Life in a Year, alongside Cara Delevingne and Cuba Gooding, Jr.. The project is slated for release in 2018.

Angelina Jolie Celebrates Daughter Shiloh’s Birthday at Disneyland with Cambodian Friends: ‘She Wants to Show Them America’

Angelina Jolie took her family and friends to the happiest place on earth for her daughter Shiloh’s birthday.

Jolie, 41, and her kids, along with some of their friends from Cambodia, went to Disneyland on Friday to celebrate Shiloh’s 11th birthday. Their Cambodian friends are some of the same child actors who appeared in Jolie’s film First They Killed My Father, which airs on Netflix this fall.

“All wanted for her birthday was to see her friends from Cambodia,” says a source close to the family. “She wants to show them America.”

And what better introduction to America than Disneyland? The group was spotted around the park by ecstatic fans on social media throughout the day. At one point, Jolie and the kids were photographed inside the Ridemakerz store in Downtown Disney, which is like a Build-a-Bear for toy race cars.

The outing was a fun reunion for her kids and their friends from Cambodia. Speaking to reporters at the Cambodian premiere of First They Killed My Father in February, Jolie said, “ children have close ties to the children here, many of them are their best friends.”

Filming the movie was a family affair for the actress, who has had a close connection to the country dating back to when she filmed Tomb Raider there on location 17 years ago. She adopted her oldest child, Maddox, 15, from Cambodia two years later.

When she returned to film First They Killed My Father, which depicts the devastation inflicted on Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge communist party in the 1970s, she enlisted Maddox and Pax, 13, to work on production, and the rest of the kids — Zahara, 12, Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8 — joined the family in country during filming.

At the premiere, Shiloh told the crowd in the Cambodian language of Khmer: “My name is Shiloh and I love Cambodia.”

JFK’s Grandchildren Reflect on His Legacy Ahead of What Would Have Been His 100th Birthday

If he was still alive, John F. Kennedy would turn 100 years old on May 29 — and although his grandchildren never met the former president, who was assassinated in 1963 at age 46, his ideals continue to impact the nation and their own lives.

In a video made in partnership with the John F. Kennedy Library in honor of the centennial, the president’s daughter Caroline Kennedy and her three children — Rose, 28, Tatiana, 27, and Jack, 24 —remember President Kennedy’s legacy.

“I’ve thought about him and missed him every day of my life, but growing up without him was made easier thanks to all of the people who kept him in their heart,” said Caroline, the 59-year-old former president’s only living child.

She reminisced about hiding under the Oval Office desk and sailing with her father as a child.

“He is a historical figure,” Caroline said. “One hundred years is a really long time, but I think his legacy and these values are timeless and they live on.”

Tatiana, a climate change reporter for the New York Times, shared that she connects with her grandfather by studying history, a pastime also enjoyed by President Kennedy.

“While my grandfather had reverence for the past and the lessons it could impart, he also knew that America was a country where change was possible, where we aren’t bound solely by tradition, if we understand the past with which we are breaking,” she said.

Rose, a spitting image of her grandmother Jackie Kennedy, spoke about her grandfather’s push for equality — work that continues today in injustices such as voting rights and mass incarceration.

“My grandfather would be proud of how far we’ve come as a nation since 1963, but he’d have been the first to tell us that we have a long way to go,” she said.

Jack talked about President Kennedy’s concern for the environment and the ongoing issue of climate change.

“He cared deeply about the environment, about science and technology,” Jack said. “And he recognized that only if America leads the world in solving global problem can we make sure that it’s done right.”

“Great challenges are opportunities,” he continued. “I know that we’re up to the task, but we have to demand action from our leaders, and we have to vote.”

Madeleine McCann’s Parents Still Have ‘Hope’ and Buy Daughter Birthday Presents 10 Years After Her Disappearance

Madeleine McCann‘s parents are speaking out in the wake of news that authorities are investigating a “significant line of inquiry” in the decade-old case.

Kate and Gerry McCann – whose 3-year-old daughter vanished from her family’s rented ground-floor apartment in Portugal on May 3, 2007 – tell British journalist Fiona Bruce in a new interview that they “still hope” Madeleine will be found, according to the U.K.’s Press Association.

“There is progress and there are some very credible lines of inquiry that the police are working on and whilst there’s no evidence to give us any negative news, you know, that hope is still there,” said Kate.

In a statement last week from London’s Metropolitan Police, Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said a team of four detectives continues to work on “outstanding inquiries” in Madeleine’s disappearance, with aid from their Portuguese counterparts.

“We’ve got some critical lines of inquiry, those link to particular hypotheses, but I’m not going to discuss those because those are very much live investigation,” Rowley said.

The Metropolitan Police opted to reopen and fully fund a new probe into Madeleine’s disappearance in 2013.

Madeleine was one week from her fourth birthday when she went missing from the family’s vacation apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal. The little girl had been left with her 2-year-old twin siblings in the unlocked rental while Kate and Gerry dined at a restaurant just 130 feet away.

“No parent is going to give up on their child, unless they know for certain their child is dead, and we just don’t have any evidence,” Gerry – who, along with Kate, was cleared as a suspect in Madeleine’s disappearance – said.

Echoed Kate, “My hope for Madeleine being out there is no less than it was almost 10 years ago. I mean, apart from those first 48 hours, nothing has actually changed since then.”

Both have full faith in the Metropolitan Police’s work: “They’ve managed to pull so much together and sift through so much information, so now we do seem to be on just several lines of enquiry rather than tens/hundreds,” said Kate.

Gerry and Kate said that they’ve tried hard to make life somewhat normal for their twins, Sean and Amelie.

“I think before Madeleine was taken, we felt we had managed to achieve our little perfect nuclear family of five,” said Gerry, adding, “At some point you’ve got to realize that time is not frozen and I think both of us realize that we owed it to the twins to make sure that their life is as fulfilling as they deserve, and we have certainly tried our best to achieve that.”

Still, Madeleine is “always still part of our life,” said Gerry.

“I think every kind of event that we do, whether it be a birthday or a family occasion or even an achievement or something that is kind of when you really feel her absence,” said Kate, adding that she still buys birthday and Christmas presents for her daughter – including for Madeleine’s upcoming 14th.

“I think, that there is still hope really, there isn’t a new appeal, most of the media that we’ve done in the previous years is usually around that – so this is unusual,” said Gerry. “So, we are marking the anniversary. I think it’s been good for the general public to hear police say there’s no evidence that she’s dead, and that there is still an active investigation, and there is still hope. So certainly from my point of view, somebody knows what’s happened.”

This Little Girl Loves Costco So Much, She Made It Her Birthday Party Theme

When Kimber Walker celebrated her fifth birthday, she picked a pretty unconventional party theme. 

The North Carolina preschooler commemorated the occasion with a Costco-themed party at her home in February. 

“She is obsessed with Costco,” Kimber’s mom, Niki, told The Huffington Post. “We served hotdogs and pizza, set up sample stations, printed dollars with her face on them, had Costco pizza and Kirkland ice cream. We also had a little shop set up, and everyone designed their own ‘membership cards’.”

Niki said Kimber had been requesting a Costco-themed party for two years, so the family finally decided to bring her dream to life for her fifth birthday.

The Walkers declared their daughter “Employee of the Month” and set up a photo area for guests to take photos with a sign stating that. Their local Winston-Salem Costco even gave them a special employee badge for the little girl.

Kimber had a blast at the party, and her guests enjoyed the celebration as well.

“They thought it was hilarious and quirky, which both describe my daughter,” said the mom.  “One of the little girls that came said that it was the best party that she had ever been to, including all of her own. “

John Legend Shares Adorable New Photos of Baby Luna on His 38th Birthday

A very happy birthday indeed.

Celebrating turning another year older on Wednesday, John Legend shared adorable new photos with his 8-month-old daughter Luna on Instagram.

In one snap, Legend —who’s currently on vacation with his wife Chrissy Teigen and their family — looks blissful as he snuggles his baby girl on a couch.

In another selfie, the “Love Me Now” singer is again all smiles as Luna looks off-camera (perhaps at mom?).

“Thank you for all the birthday wishes. Love you all! Enjoying this view with Chrissy and Lu, feeling grateful,” he captioned another photo that showed off his vacation views.

Teigen, 31, also gave her husband a sweet shout-out on her own Instagram account, captioning a photo of herself snuggling with Luna: “Happy birthday, beautiful papa.”

Over the weekend, the couple celebrated their first Christmas as parents by dressing up their little one in a Saint Nick onesie, complete with a plush red and white hat.

Earlier in the month, the model and cookbook author shared photos from Luna’s first meeting with Santa on her social media accounts.

Visiting a local Macy’s department store, the star posted with Luna, Saint Nick — and a photo cutout of Legend.

“When your husband is in Paris but you gotta get your Santa on,” she captioned the photo.
