I could/should try write more and make more than one looooong paragraph but mama needs to get stuff cleaned up from your birthday party. Okay? I know you'll understand. I love you, my sweetie.
And your siblings, they adore you too!
|The invitation - he cooperated well for our photo shoot.|
|My slippers from my costume box and Dad's socks fit the theme.|
|The birthday boy (with his circle "e" shirt I whipped up an hour before his party thanks to stitch witchery!) and his parents|
|I found these glasses in my costume box - awesomeness!|
|Grandma and Grandpa Kasowski AND The Great Grandma and Great Grandpa Kasowski!|
|Month-by-Month sticker ties (a serious Mom win that I kept that up each month) made such a cute display. |
Bouncy balls, bubble rings, and pom-pom crafts for favors
|Greg took a pic of some of the food! circle/balls only!|
Pea pods = find the circle inside!
|Greg took this photo and I think this is how the kids will remember me so I'm including it.|
|The crown lasted two seconds. Check out the reused "i am 1" from sister!|
|Our next door Wisconsin neighbors who will watch our kids for us occasionally and we do love them so!|
|These girls just cared more about playing in the dirt out back!|
|Opening presents, check out the tongue, a new thing he does!|
|He REALLY enjoyed smooshing his cupcake in his hands. It took him awhile to taste it, then he was quite thrilled and yelped loudly!|
|We sure love Great Grandmooother - isn't she a beauty?|
|Love these generations of Kasowski men.|
|Cousin Alexia is sure a fun one!|
|Glad he's healthy today!|
|We (or Grandma) owns all this stuff! CUPCAKE fail here... all my good red food coloring dried out so I was stuck with using the "red" that's really just pink. Too late to change. Blue vs Redish light sabers. They were still yummy. Buttercream is the best.|
|EVERYTHING SW: soap and Kleenex, even Mac-n-Cheese!|
Our box of prizes for all the games... so much SW
|No room for the other Far without creating a new line. Whatevs, Uncle Chris.|
|TACOS! Luke Skywater, Jedi Juice, Trooper Scoopers, Dark Side Chips, and Obi-Wan Kabobies!|
Admiral Ackbar Snackbar!
Hans Rolos, Wookie Cookies/Chewie Cookies, Edible Ewoks, Tie Fighters (my fave), Yoda ears, R2D2 Popcorn (puffcorn plus almond bark and sprinkles), Light Sabers, Cheeze-it and Honey Maids already done for me! SW baggies
|YES. Silver forks in a clearanced Easter Yoda basket. SW napkins from Target.|
|Lilli was the BEST Rey!|
|Pool Noodle Light Sabers - duct tape and electrical tape! I know there are no white light sabers, btw. Their favors included a SW Phonics book (or bubbles for the ones that don't like SW), SW fruit snacks, light saber pencil, and an Easter egg shaped like a SW guy with SW candy in it (90% off Target win).|
|MC as Han and Amy sporting crazy cool Darth socks.|
|Chewie and a Jedi and an R2D2 bubble maker.|
|Chewie and baby!|
|Awesome grandparents! And SW magnets on my microwave. Seriously had SW guys all over the place.|
|I had made Leia buns but SHE's NOT WEARING THEM IN ANY OF THE PHOTOS. Plus she got tacos all over the white later and so I don't know if I'll ever get THE photo I'm looking for.|
|This is after all the balloons mooshed together but they were quite cool before. I drew stormtroopers on some of them. The kids were alllll about wacking these. A good portion of the party here! You can't see the SW sheets I hung for an awesome photo backdrop (that I didn't use, arg) that also covered my pantry!|
|CRAZY fun! Why you have unfinished basements, y'all! WAIT! I see the Leia buns! FTW!|
|I made a DEATH STAR pinata out of layers of toys/snacks and tin foil. AND I FORGOT ABOUT IT until 5 minutes before the party ended and many kids were gone! Oh shucks. We were outside by then bc the weather was awesome!|
We also had SW bingo but it was a little too detailed for our crew...
|What Jedi arrived??|
|Yoda hat onto it's third baby! And daddy's SW blanket from when he was a boy.|
And what a sweet birthday boy, Eli is six years old!!
|Four teeth plus another one and two coming real soon!|
|Outtake, check out my fast arms!|
