Lexi Webster celebrated her third birthday a bit early. Her actual birthday is on January 26th, but her parents hosted a party ahead of schedule. The theme was PJ Masks, an animated children's TV show that all three Webster girls love. The get-together was organized by Alyssa, party planning extraordinaire, and featured festive decorations and a homemade, three layer cake.

Happy early birthday, Lexi! Below are links to some of the other parties that Alyssa has thrown for her daughters.

  4. The kids are nicely dressed in this photo. It looks like she had a nice birthday party. Glad that Alyssa and John allow their daughters to experience normal things like most little girls. Hopefully, they will attend school.

    2. They're homeschooling, they've said so.

    3. As a homeschool mom, I can assure you that there are many, many benefits to homeschooling. Homeschool is "normal" to a large number of people in my town, from all kinds of backgrounds. Loads of extracurricular opportunities available for homeschoolers here too. I hope John and Alyssa choose what they deem best for their girls.

    4. Why do they have to attend public school? Not all kids like it, or thrive in that situation. I had so many friends growing up who HATED public school, because it really isn’t for everyone. I was homeschooled from third grade up and loved it so much more than being stuck in the same building for eight hours everyday, only to have to come home and do MORE school (homework). I was able to experience so much more being homeschooled than I ever would have been able to if I had been in public school, and I’m so greatful my parents made that choice for me. Obviously homeschooling isn’t for everyone either, but please stop trying to push the narrative that being in public school is somehow better.

    5. Allie's "homeschool" is watching a video. When my kids were in preschool, they played with instruments, enjoyed visits from local firemen, used playdoh to scultp numbers and letters, fingerpainted, sang songs, had circle time, learned to get along with nonrelated kids, and made lots of things from paper mache. Watching a video is just not the same. Four is such a fun age--there are so many creative ways to teach them things.

    6. 10:51- I don't care one way or the other about homeschooling, but how do you know Alyssa isn't doing all those things with her kids instead of just watching videos?

    7. I agree that teaching through play is the way to go with 4 year olds BUT we don't know if she only does video school or if her parents do other things with her as well.

    8. How do you know what Alyssa does for homeschooling Allie? Seriously, have you been in their home to observe? My kids go to public school, and I am a public school teacher. However, I think it is so rude for people to judge how parents choose to educate their children!

    9. Alyssa has frequently shown Allie watching a video of a lady teaching basic skills. She says she gets ready for the day while Allie "does school" in this way. She has a set of preschool videos for Lexi, which she supplements with flashcards. There are so many better ways to teach a three-year old than flashcards. Learning through play is the best way to teach that age group. But yes, Alyssa homeschools (her father-in-law is a huge advocate of homeschool).

    1. She sure would!

    2. Why? She made a cake and bought decorations. 30 years ago, this was something every mother did.

    3. Yeah, but not every mom has the same party-planning knack.

    4. Not everyone has the time or talent to pull off a well-organized party. Alyssa does. I think she'd do great in the business.

    5. To be a party planner, you also need to know how to network, negotiate with suppliers, budget, market yourself, bookkeep, do taxes and work with clients. Maybe Alyssa has these skills, but creating a party for a three-year old doesn't show that.

    6. Do people hire party planners for a three-year old's party? Are there really people who can't do this on their own?

    7. 9:41, don't forget that Alyssa and John have already owned their own business and no doubt have experience in the things you mentioned. I'm guessing they closed down the business because of her health and their growing kids. I don't see her getting back into business soon, but it's not because she lacks the skills.

      Delete
    8. 9:44, why would her hypothetical party planning business limit itself to 3 year olds?

      Delete
    9. Pinterest, Amazon, and YouTube pretty much have you covered when it comes to planning a birthday party for a 3 year old. It's not rocket-science.

    10. Small children are usually the ones having birthday parties. Doesn't have to be a three-year old, could be an eight year old. Parents have been planning these parties for years without any help. Why would anyone pay Alyssa to do so? Although she put together a nice party for Lexi, I don't think it's something she can monetize. Parents have been throwing parties for their kids for centuries.

  7. My goodness, Allie Jane is extremely tall for a four-year old. She must take after her dad!
