Cinco en mayo — A Cinco de Mayo Birthday Party for Kids

Hola! My son has a May Day birthday, but rather than maypoles and flowers, I thought it would be really fun to have a Cinco de Mayo party for him, especially when he turned five. I called it a Cinco en Mayo party, because that means “5 in May!” Yes, I admit this theme was […]

Western Themed Blue and Gold Banquet

I currently am an assistant Cub Master. Assistant is the operative word here. There is much about Cub Scouts that I still have to learn, but basically, I help make Pack Meeting a party each month. February was our Pinewood Derby (maybe a post to come?), so we are getting ready to have our Blue […]

Big Hero 6 Movie Party

Glowing Neon Laser Tag Party

Turning 10 is a pretty big deal! Even if your mom recently had a baby and is super-busy and worn-out, 10 still needs to be celebrated, right? 10-year-old boys can also be a big deal–a big, noisy, rambunctious big deal for a mom to deal with…particularly when there are several of them together in a […]

Superhero Birthday for Kids

Everybody loves Superheros, right? Chances are you are going to be involved in some sort of superhero celebration at some point in your life, if you haven’t already. My son turned 4 at a rather inconvenient time for us. I was just returning from SNAP! conference, I am great-with-child, and on top of it all […]

Mad Science Birthday

I have been so excited to share our super Science Birthday Experiment–I mean “party”.  The kids had so much fun with this! And it was educational! Win win! This makes a great birthday party, or decorate it a little spookier and it makes a great Halloween party! We set the tone for the party with […]

Super Hero Surprise 30th Birthday

I’ve shown you the comic book style invitations and save the dates I made for my brother-in-law’s surprise 30th Superhero birthday party. It’s about time I show you the rest of the party! I won’t be giving any lengthy tutorials because I didn’t do most of the work for this party. I think I planted […]

How to make a 3D Train Cake

I had a request for more details about the 3D cake I made for my son’s 2-year-old Train Birthday Party last year. I should clarify before I start, that I am not a trained baker (wait until I show you his 3-year-old birthday cake fail). I just get big ideas for my kids’ cakes and […]

Terrific Train Birthday Party

I’ve had a little break from birthday parties, but there are a couple right around the corner now. Before my son celebrates his 3rd birthday, it might be a good idea to blog his 2nd birthday. It hit at a really busy time last year and I just didn’t get a chance to get the […]

Book of Mormon Baptism Dinner

After making my son’s special baptism invitation, I wanted to carry the theme through to our dinner celebration after the baptism. At first I wanted to do a Book of Mormon mystery menu, like my sister had done before. BSB vetoed it on the grounds that it would be a lot of work to serve, […]
