My boy is 7....this year instead of a Mario or Sonic or Spiderman party, we decided on a Lego party....I thought the cake turned out okay....had I had more time, I would have done a better frosting job, but Caleb LOVED it and that is all that matters. Grandma McGregor sent a big lego set for Caleb, so we made most of it and used it as decoration....
We had AMAZING weather for the party - I think it was at least 70....so I sent the kids outside when they first arrived. I gave each kid a bag of lego candy to build with or eat...yes, you can build with it, and no it doesn't taste good to anyone but kids.... This is one of Caleb's good friends Daniel.
After everyone arrived, we went inside for the games. For the first game, I had put together what I thought were simple lego designs, but quickly found out that either the kids had a bad memory, or they were too hard. What they were supposed to do was to study the design, take it all apart, and then see who could put it back together the quickest...most of the adults had to get involved, but they all seemed to like it. This was also their party favor (do you know how expensive legos are????crazy). Jacob was the winner of this game.
for the second game, I took the mega blocks that we had stored in the attic and put the kids into three teams and had a race to see who could build the tallest tower without the tower falling over.....it was quite funny to watch, but they did great, and by the time the time was up, all three fell to the ground, so I couldn't declare a winner....
Here is the group of kids....probably should have closed my curtains, ya think???
Keira, Bella, Savannah, Chloe, Victoria, CJ, Camden, Naomi, Daniel, Caleb, Jacob, Daniel, Ethan, and Aaron...
Next was the pinata of whic we could do in our front yard in our tree that we planted when Caleb was born....I didn't get a picture of Caleb hitting the pinata, so I am using the one of Chloe hitting it. Josh and his brother took charge and I wasn't ready, so I didn't get the picture...oh well!!!
Time for cake!
Again, I sent the kids outside to eat...thank you LORD for such an amazing day - cleanup was a sinch!
As the kids left, Caleb opened the present from each kid as they left. He was very thankful. He got a lot of cool stuff, mostly legos and some Mario stuff too.
His sisters gave him an m&m night light and a red plush m&m.
Victoria and Bella gave him a lego set
and Grandpa and Grandma gave him the game Creationary and a Mario stylus for his DS.
And now, the seven things I love about Caleb:
1. He still loves to cuddle with me and even will give me a kiss in front of his friends...
2. He loves to read chapter books with me
3. He has an amazing imagination and comes up with the craziest and most exciting stories
4. He knows that he is going to Heaven when he dies and he is very aware of God's love for him
5. He has an amazing ability to focus on something that he loves
6. He is very well behaved and I rarely have problems with him
7. He is an awesome big brother to his sisters, almost every night they play together and enjoy each other.
I am truly blessed to have such an amazing son!!!
