Birthday Parties - Elijah's 6th Birthday - Super Hero Party


For Elijah 6th birthday, he wanted a super hero party where everyone can dress up like Super Heroes. The invitations went out, which told everyone to dress as his or her favorite hero.



We had balloons in honor of Batman



And an avengers themed banner


Cupcakes


And favors.

We were ready for all the super heroes to arrive


Thor


Black Widow


Super Why




Boba Fett



Super Girl


Outrageous Lu


Of Course there was food too.
Super Power food.



make your own SUPER hero sandwich









After eating, they created Super Hero badges for themselves






















Then all the super heroes went outside to fight the evil Dinoator from taking over the world






















Turns out he was full of candy.



Then it was time to sing




And open presents























It looked like everyone had a great time. Despite how this photo looks, Caleb did too.
I think he was just on the look-out for some bad guys to fight.

Birthday Parties - Caleb's 2nd Birthday - Pool Party


I was going through all of the old posts to see what I missed and what I touched upon One of the things that I haven't really updated about were the birthday parties for the past couple years.

We usually do a party, no matter how small, for each birthday. The boys really enjoy getting together with everyone in the usual group of invitees and every year it seems more and more other people are invited, especially to Elijah's parties.

In the past few years, I or my mother-in-law have posted about a lot of them:

Elijah's 4th birthday - 2012 - Angry Birds

Caleb's 1st birthday - 2012 - Bubble Guppies

and

Elijah's 5th birthday - 2013 - Angry Birds


Caleb's Birthday in 2013 was a pool party. As with all of my birthday party posts there are a bunch of pictures.

 Prepping the pool for swimming

 


Chicken shish kabobs medley for lunch


 Along with a bunch of other goodies





While the food was cooking there was plenty of swimming






 Then we went inside to do a craft. They decorated foam sun visors. 








 Even Lulu decorated one. So creative for being a few months old.






 Caleb was ready to dive into the awesome looking cake and cupcakes.









 

 So excited to sing!



 




All the party guests enjoyed the cupcakes. Caleb enjoyed the Llama Drama video he loved.


 Then it was time for presents. 





 It was such a fun party and we were grateful that my in-laws let us use their house to host it.


Next up is Elijah's Super Hero Party.
