Celebrating 8 Years of Life

Thought I’d share some photos from our oldest one’s 8th Birthday Party this weekend. Hope you enjoy them! :)

Decorating the Cake

My son did all of the cake decorating. The whipped cream didn’t turn out the way we thought it would, but it tasted good! And notice the “dead guy” in the middle… true “boy” cake. ;)

Lego Building Contest

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the Lego building portion of the party! I was surprised by how “into it” they were.  And the children LOVED the awards! I used all of the categories you suggested so everyone received at least 2 awards for their work. Thank you! Unfortunately I didn’t get a photo of our “Prettiest” and “Roundest” award winning Lego creation with a horse and flowers… it was very pretty!

By Special Request…

we had Mac and Cheese Pizza from CiCi’s on Star Wars plates and Hugs with crazy straws,

a Lego pinata with pull strings (my oldest isn’t a fan of busting pinatas),

and sparkling candles that really did shoot off sparks and even re-lit themselves (it was fun to watch).

We ended our celebration with opening presents (which to no surprise, but TONS of JOY, consisted of many Lego building kits).

What a wonderful celebration of our oldest one’s 8th birthday… thanks for being a part of it! And thank you, God, for giving us our sweet boy!

Love,

♥ Michelle (aka SomeGirl)

Btw, have you heard Our Story?

Oh, almost forgot… what Birthday celebration in Texas is complete without a Sombrero, awkward moment,  free dessert and a song? ;)

Looks like a wonderful party by the looks of the smiles. The pinata is great!

Thanks, Steph! The pinata was fun to make. :) I was glad to still have something to make since my son took over cake decorating this year. ;)

Your party looked GREAT, Michelle! Everyone seemed to have so much fun – and I loved all your creative ideas (the Lego pinata is wonderful!).

I read your family’s story. What a wonderful thing you and your husband did – and what a beautiful way to make a family!
