Christian, Christian, Christian. . .the day after his party he woke up saying he was actually "five years old!"
Here are some of my favorite things about the party. . .
Who doesn't love treat bags with little trinkets, toys, and candy?
This was one of the party favors. . .We gave out inflatable balls along with this little printable!
We started a new tradition. All of our guests signed Christian's birthday book. Every year he's going to get a new book and all the guests will sign it. I'll add a picture from his party on the inside cover. I'm sure in 6 years when he's 10 he'll want nothing to do with this book, but at least I'll have a memory of my handsome little four year old guy! I hope he'll enjoy looking back on the memories too.
We kept the "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" menu simple: pizza, fruit, and juice boxes. Nothing fancy.
We just went with a classic cookie from Great American Cookie Co. Simple, yet so delicious!
This is wrapping paper that I used as a table decoration. When the party ended, Mr. Perry rolled it up and we added it to our party supplies. Not sure how long it will last, but I know it will make it to Solomon's party in April 2012! I love it because the colors match just about anything. Solomon's having a "Very Hungry Caterpillar" party because he just eats and eats and eats and eats and eats. . .No one can resist pinching his chubby little cheeks and tummy!
Please excuse the pizza. . .I couldn't get a good shot of the kids while they were eating. Someone always had food hanging out of their mouth!
Four little candles. . .
My big guy. . .
Growing up way to fast. . .
After a little bit of limbo, bowling, and opening gifts the boys actually slept in until 7:00 am. It's a good thing my parents and grandmother were in town because I was exhausted!
