It is happening people... I have a 5 year old!! Technically not until the end of the month... but we will be out of town the next few weekends and this was the only birthday-month-Saturday that we could make work!
This year's theme is Ninjago!!!
It is Boston's latest obsession and if you don't know what it is... it is Lego Ninjas haha. There is a tv show and a movie that just came out. We took the kids to it and they were in heaven! Boston is at the age where he is getting into Lego and who doesn't love ninjas? So it is easy to see why these kids love it so much.
Ninjago Powerade (I forgot my chalk board signs :( so writing under the pictures will have to do)
Ninja Fruit Staffs and "Serpentine" Veggies (bad guys on Ninjago)
Ninja cheese and meat plate (meat MIA for the picture haha)
Ninja Cookies! These looked so cute when I first made them but after they dried overnight the black started to bleed a little so they weren't quite perfect... but close!
The food color pen is my new favorite thing!! And it was chocolate cake of course!
Party favors!!!! We had lego treat bags, ninja staffs (pvc pipe, pipe insulation and gold duct tape!)...
and masks!!! I forgot to take a picture of all the party guests in their masks :( so you will have to take my word that they all looked so cute!!!
My little ninjas!!! There was a lot of staff fighting when all the guests arrived haha luckily they are pretty soft! I had made the staffs in just the black and Boston proceeded to tell me that Ninjago have GOLD weapons haha so I made him a special birthday boy gold staff and added it to the ends of everyone else's.
We had a yummy lunch when everyone arrived and then we decorated our ninja stars!!
We had a long "Ninja Training Obstacle Course" down to the basement. They crawled through the streamers, went through a tunnel, jumped over some buckets and had to carry marshmallows in a spoon across the room to complete training.
Once they were trained ninjas we used our throwing stars to kill the baddies!
Then we used our ninja staffs for the piñata!
Then presents and cake! This boy got spoiled, so much lego and more weapons, his two favorite things haha. He was one happy boy today!!!!
I love throwing parties but I love this boy even more! He has been such a miracle and bright light in our lives ever since he came around. He is so smart, sensitive, fun, brave and goofy. He is the BEST big brother in the whole world. I know everyone says that... but I really think he is up there. He is a good friend and just loves people!! He gets so excited over the simplest things in life and I hope that never changes! He is excited to start school next year and I can't believe I have a 5 year old!! Happy Birthday Boston! We love you SO much!!
