My husband has been deployed for 3 of my daughter's b-days and both of my middle son's. So we usually do a little family party, and then i take them out for a special day. This year I took my daughter to a movie, out to her favorite place to eat then to the Disney store to pick out a toy.
My friend, whose hubby is deployed, had a small party for her son's 2nd. Fun snacks, the boys "decorated" cupcakes and made a mess, played with play-doh and acted silly :-) There were just 4 guests, which was a great number.
