CJ’s 5th Superhero Birthday Party

Major Success!!!



I was a little worried how I would handle 16 kids and parents in our house for the party due to rain, but even with the chaos, it was successful.  Everyone had a blast!  The capes were a major hit and the parents ended up doing most of the mask decorating since the attention was on the kitten, but it went well!!  Not to mention, the jetpacks were also a major hit!!!  As for the cupcakes and cake, I wasn’t sure if I was going to have enough time to decorate them since it was a super crazy busy week at work and all of my free time went to making the jetpacks and capes, but I managed to do it Saturday morning after tball thanks to a great suggestion from my mom!  She suggested I use the cupcake picks instead of piping designs on each one, definitely easier to pipe one color and use sticks.  So after CJ’s 9am tball game I went to iParty looking for picks and they didn’t have any superhero picks….so I improvised.  I knew I had plenty of tooth picks at home, so I bough stickers and made double sided picks by using a tooth pick in the middle and two stickers stuck together to create my own themed picks!!  Awesome easy creation!!!  At then end when it was all over, CJ kept thanking me and hubby for the awesome party that he had so much fun at!  I would say all the time, craziness, and having to clean the house again after everyone left was well worth it!!!  I also have to thank my best friend for staying and helping me pick up the playroom, that was so helpful and I would not have gotten it cleaned up that night….I would have put it off till the next day.  So thank you!  And thank you to all who helped make CJ’s party perfect!!!  We are so lucky to have such wonderful friends and family.

I'm an art teacher aka working mom that has two wonderful boys, ages 4 and 9 months. My husband is a police officer who works nights; so I find that my style of parenting isn't always what others approve of, but it works for us! I am very crafty so I am always finding new projects to try and think that I am "green" or at least try to be. My philosophy is live laughing and loving. This blog is intended as an adventure so we'll see how it goes...
