HAPPY 19th BIRTHDAY BREANNA!!!!
Oops! see the video on Facebook...
JEDI TRAINNING ADCADEMY = where the young kids trained to become a Jedi and actually fight Darth Vader or Darth Mal. We were the first ones picked to go up on stage, the kids were excited! Jacob, Breanna, Kyle (all jedi attire) & Aubri (Princess Lhea) were all decked out in costumes. we chanted "Jedi Power" while the kids held up 1 sign each spelling J - E - D - I. (I took mostly video of this event - more to come later).
PRINCESS FANTASY FAIR = our 3 littlest pricesses went to this and got to see several of their favorites pricesses dance & sing, tell a story and take pictures with them.
Argh Matey! Zerrick is 1 yr. old now
...Let's have a Pirate Party to celebrate!
Zac had found this fun pirate toy set that we decided to give to Zerrick (even though we knew the older kids would play with it more). I decided to go with the pirate theme to match the toy set. I also saw the neatest cake at Fred Meyer that totally matched the theme as well. Since I don't like spending $30+ on a store bought cake with frosting I don't like, I decided I would buy the accessory kit and make it myself. It was harder than what I thought, but I think it turned out really cute. Cousins Jaidyn, Kailey& Porter came over for the festivities and a treasure hunt. Grandma B, Cousin Lucy,"Captain" Willie (with parents respectfully) joined us as well.
Zerrick loved the cake! he was goaded on by uncles, cousins and siblings to get really messy - well the picture shows how messy! (I'm talking in the hair and everywhere!)
Kyle had a WEBtastic 6th Birthday! Spiderman Style!
Kyle had 6 friends and 4 siblings come to his party. I made a "web" out of string. The game was that they each got one end of the string and they had to weave and wind through this web to find the end of their string so that they could find a prize. I tied on the end of the string a goodie bag filled with spiderman candy, fruit snacks, balloon and other spiderman party favors. This type of game I remember doing at a party that I had when I was 6 years old. (I didn't realize all the coincidences until the day of the party). We also wrapped up the "out of control" superheros to try to teach them a lesson. The kids were excited to do this but it turned out to be a lot harder than one would expect. The TP kept breaking and they didn't know quite what to do - Breanna & Aubri ended up doing most of it. It was a cute idea anyways. We also played spidey says (like simon says) and also musical webs. I made some circles out of red & blue plastic plates and Kyle helped me draw spider webs on them. We played spiderman music while they walked around the circle. I actually drew a colored game chip out of a bag and the children standing on that colored web got a sticker. They all had fun!! On to the cake...I tried a new frosting idea with Kyle's spiderman cake. I had seen a picture that I thought was cool, so I tried to minic that. I made a couple modifications, but I think it turned out pretty neat. (it wasn't my favorite tasting frosting, but half the kids ate the frosting more than the cake, silly!) I got several spiderman things from the $1.oo store - including the poster. Cool uh?! We were going to play pin the spider on spiderman, but we ran out of time.
