Birthday Party #1
We had our first celebration for the little boy with the ladies' bible class, with the ladies who consider themselves ( and WE consider ) surrogate aunts and grandmothers :)
The theme this year is Minecraft, and the first cake was a Stampy cake :)
We used sparkler candles that seemed to be playing a trick on the little boy, refusing to be blown out.
We got him a Squiddy action figure to complete the Dynamic Duo of Stamps and Squid, and he got some lovely gifts from the ladies.
Birthday Party #2
The second celebration was at home with a "Minecraft Cake" cake. :)
A RAINBOW "Minecraft Cake" Cake
There were some little action figures that I had gotten at a Dittos for Kiddos event,
A Super Space Red Bird that makes Angry Bird sounds,
and some Cars Play Doh accessories.
Birthday Party #3
The third party was with the family over at Mamo's church building, this time with a more complete Minecraft theme. I mean, I crushed Oreos and everything to make make-believe dirt on the side of those "dirt blocks" that were arranged to make the number 7.
I printed out little food labels in the spirit of Minecraft and finger foods that matched them.
There was even a little activity station for the kiddoes with some stuff that I had gotten online from a online birthday supplies store.
I was happy to see that the boys were really into coloring their masks - as well as dueling with the soft blow-up pickaxes :)
It did my heart good to see Max and the little boy having some "peer" time, seeing how they are only 6 months apart.
Then, it was cake time ! Yum.
Among other things, he received a pixel star wars t shirt from Popo ( which he immediately changed into ), a Stampy from Brianna,
a Minecraft Lego set, and a crazy jigsaw from us :)
