Saturday came and left, needless to say I'm glad! Party planning was done in about a 2 week time frame due to my son changing his mind. He wanted Sonic the Hedgehog but when we explained he may not get Sonic toys he decided to change it to Lego Spiderman. That left me with about 2 weeks before the party which was ok but finding decorations, invitation and games is what got me.
Here are a few pics;
Cake I made. A few boo boo's but the birthday boy loved it!!
|1st game, Guess how many Legos are in the jar.|
|Spiderman Dart game|
|Spiderman catching bad guys. He had to turn them good.|
|PINATA!! What's a party with no piñata? The chairs in the background were part of another game. I have no pic of that one though :( Only a video but its 2 min and shows all the kids.|
Most of the ideas came from Pintrest which I'm addicted too! (Guilty pleasure, lol) We also took him out the Rainforest Café yesterday and give him his gift. He had a blast so it was worth it. He's such a great kid that we had to do what we could. We use to buy him toys just for the fun of it but that has stopped and either child gets things unless its a birthday or Christmas. My son is in dual language and Aspire classes so why not reward him? He doesn't have chores that he gets an allowance from doing them and besides telling him we're proud of him and taking him out to Mc'D's or buying a Dollar Store toy he gets nothing. It's his "Job" to do well in school but just as an adult wants to feel appreciated for what they do I'm doing it for my son! Your Birthday only comes around once a year and it's nothing but a Blessing from God to have survived. There are many parents that lose children at an early age so every year you have is a time to give praise to God and rejoice! We were blessed to have family and friends to help celebrate and truly grateful for the sacrifices they made.
