Some how, somewhere along the line, my little boy grew up!!! How can I tell? He's turning 6 this year, and he decided he'd like a "friends party". So, the planning began. He decided, of course, on a Star Wars theme. Then, the more we got into planning, and decorating, we thought it would be a good idea to have an all-boy guest list. Which, I think was a good decision, I can't imagine a poor girl in that sea of boys!
We had a Clone Wars movie playing, and the kids all watched that while everyone arrived. Then it was time to eat! Pizza and Yoda Sodas! (lime sherbet with Sprite) Everyone got some 3-D glasses, because the cups, plates, napkins, etc. were all 3-D! Cool!
Then we played a couple of games, "Rescue the Princess", where they had to pop balloons and find a picture of a princess inside, and a version of pin-the-whatever-on-the-something. :)
Then, presents... how exciting for ALL of them!!! It was fun to see how excited they all were to have Cannon open their present, and all the "oohs" and "aahs" and "COOLS!"
Then the cake, and Cannon requested trick candles. I'm not really sure how tricky it is if you're expecting it, but it was exciting all the same!
What a fun day!!! So fun to see my little boy all grown up, hanging out with his pals. And you know what? He has some really nice, cute friends. ALL of them! Isn't he so lucky? (and what a relief for the Mama!)
