The Angry Birds Party was a big hit!
I had a pretty ecstatic 5 year old on my hands.
Before we get to the party pics,
I wanted to share one last craft, the goodie bags!
And as the kids tell me, it's the most important part,
and presents. :)
I started off by buying some red and blue bags at Target.
I then pulled some graphics off the internet and enlarged them to fit.
Cut out your faces and bring out the bags.
Glue the faces as shown.
I used Elmer's Glue.
Take a sharpie and add the little feather bumps over their heads.
When they are dry, fill 'em up!
We filled ours with the Angry Birds poms, stickers, tattoo, foam bird glider,
water gun, cheese its, fruit snacks, push pops and an eraser.
Now on to the party.
We held it at a local Bounce place.
As you can imagine, I couldn't get any good bouncy pics.
These kids are FAST.
We were limited with our room decorations,
so I got Angry birds table clothes and tableware.
Little man enjoying his pizza.
Yum, ice cream cake!
The kids sang (errr, shouted) the funniest version of Happy Birthday
that I have heard to date.
Then it was goodie bag and pinata time!
My friend captured this action shot of the kids diving into to the candy tidal wave.
Note the look of fear in my eyes as I try to get away.
Then we had fun with the empty pinata.
All of the kids got a turn and a picture as we all laughed.
Here is Michael.
And I couldn't leave Jaime out.
Yesterday, was Michael's actual birthday.
He told me that he's a man now
and mans (yes, mans) get big cakes, NOT cupcakes.
So, I decided to try my hand at an Angry Birds cake.
I tried the spoon frosting technique to make it look like feathers.
Michael and the kids loved the cake and then
Except for Michael, who doesn't like cake. :)
Later that night, Jaime, Michael and I had a celebration dinner at Chuck E. Cheeese's
after a trip to Toys R Us.
I had one happy boy.
