every birthday party i have thrown for my daughters have been lacking people. when i say lacking, i mean, my sister and her sons show up. thats all. i invite a bunch of people, and they RSVP, but just don't come. my daughter has her party on saturday, and only 1 person has RSVPed. grrr. my daughters don't deserve that. i'm thinking of just going on vacation next year. i know i'm not throwing my 4 year old a party in december. i'm going to take her to get a mani/pedi.
what would you do? throw a party, or go on vacation?

We don't throw parties for any of our kids. We just take them out to eat at their choice of restaraunt. Then they get gifts and cake (usually homemade). That's it. They've never complained and they've all been to "real" parties for their friends. My son turned 9 earlier this month and it was the first time he asked if he could have friends over but I ended up being sick so I said, no. He didn't even get any gifts, just $9 in a card which he spent a few days later. That's a pretty typical birthday in our house. My middle daughter turns 8 in a few weeks and we have nothing planned for her.
