So this was Sam's year to have a bday party. Actually his year was last year but we didn't get around to doing anything. I just happened to win a giveaway for some party supplies back in March and let him pick out what he wanted so that we could actually do one this year. He chose a Lego theme.
I had spent hours looking up ideas for a Lego party and planned to do all sorts of things; I even started on some of it before the baby was born so that I would have a good amount done when she got here. Well, life was too crazy before and after her birth so I didn't get what I had planned done. (Could have used some group help on this thing this year.) :(
Anyway, time was quickly passing and I knew that I had to do something so I went with very simple decorations (see the gigantic Lego man? That's about the most of it) but it turned out quite nice.
I tried so hard to make a cool looking/semi-professional cake. But it didn't turn out that way. I ran out of green icing and poor Jer went to Bi-Lo at 11:30 on a work night to pick up some more food coloring. I almost didn't use this cake but when I asked Sam about it in the a.m. he said it was cool so I sucked it up and used it anyway. It was tasty even though it wasn't nice to look at. Someday I'll get better at frosting these things!
|He got a Cars color changing kit thing. Cool. Very cool.|
We also went bowling....I'll post picks of those later. It was cute seeing all those littles in tiny bowling shoes!!!
Happy 6th birthday Bud! We love ya.
