My husband has had to miss a couple of our children's birthdays. What we usually do then or if the children's birthday falls on a weekday is have their party on the closest weekend Saturday ( you could do it the weekend before your husband leaves or after he returns) where they get to invite their friends and do an activity. On their actual birthday, we let them choose what ever they want for me to make for dinner and then have the cake and ice cream and get the presents from my dh and myself. They get the presents from their friends on the party day so both days end up being fun. If you wanted, you could do two cakes, one for each day so that the party guests get cake etc.
