Happy family – Ron, Elisabeth and Easton – Robert Evans

Elisabeth Röhm, best known for her role as Serena Southerlyn on Law & Order, has a busy 2011 ahead of her.

The actress, 37, can be seen on the big screen in the upcoming films Chlorine, Transit and Abduction, as spokesmom for Juno Baby, and can be found online on Facebook and @ElisabethRohm on Twitter.

In her latest blog, Röhm and Easton August, her daughter with fiancé Ron Anthony, celebrate their birthdays with a spring-themed party!

When I was pregnant, the doctor predicted Easton’s birthdate as April 28th — which is my birthday! Can you imagine?

I was so excited by the idea of sharing our birthdays, even though I knew that mine would no longer be the center of attention in the way that I like it (I’m someone who celebrates all month)! Seriously though, who could ask for a better present than a baby girl?! I was thrilled by the news!

It didn’t quite work out that way in the end … I was induced (not fun) several weeks early. But, somehow the idea of having a fabulous bash that celebrated Easton’s big day and loosely mine, remained and has become an annual tradition.

It’s not exactly a joint birthday party, as you’ll see from the pictures (I added captions along the bottom). It is truly a kids’ party every year, but since Easton’s birthday is April 10th and mine is April 28th, we do go beyond the usual measures for a little one’s birthday. Although if it were my party I could do without the pink Hello Kitty and the princess ice-cream cake!

This year our theme was spring … flowers everywhere, eggs hidden in bushes with plastic bugs! The food was Mexican — fresh herbs and grilled foods. Our musician Sandra Sandia sings songs in every language and totally embraces life! There were the usual kid favorites of face-painting and piñata-bashing in search of the loot.

It was a blast! But by the time the party is over I’m in the fetal position on the couch — I’m sure you moms relate. And certainly by the time my birthday rolls around a few weeks later, I’m pooped at the thought of throwing another party. I’d be happy with a nice dinner for two!

So on to our spring celebration for Easton that I get to invite a few friends to every year. It was divine, fun and truly a beautiful day that we look forward to annually!
