Super Mario Party



 Happy 6th Birthday Titus!  He loves both Mario and Luigi but chose to be Luigi all afternoon.  




  

We had so much fun with his Super Mario themed birthday party!  A huge thank-you to Oriental Trading for helping me get most of the supplies I needed for his party!   Oriental Trading had birthday banners, plates, cups, balloons, and of course Mario and Luigi masks and mustache.  WE adored the masks and the posters which helped us decorate and set the mood for fun for the whole party! 





So the first game we played was pin the mustache on Mario and Luigi.   This was a fun game and the kids enjoyed doing the game but then taking their mustache off and putting it on themselves! 





After the mustache game, we played the pie face game... that was some good laughs.

Next we needed to pose in our mustache's and so mom would have a fun picture for years! 



We also had yummy cupcakes!  Thanks to my friend Randi for coming over the night before making them!  We had Goombas, stars, mushrooms, and bricks with the question marks!  It was my first time really working with fondant and it was a learning experience for sure! 


Before we handed out the goodie bags, we had an obstacle course that the kids had a ton of fun in! After the course, we also had to have some fun with a pinata!   

Titus, I don't even know where to start on this birthday post.  It is becoming harder and harder to admit you are growing up because I still see you as my baby.  Technically you are such a little guy right now and I can still easily pick you up and I know at 6 years old I need to stop doing that...however, I love being able to and kinda enjoy baby-ing  you.   I know I know pretty soon you will be so mad at me so I am learning some self control in that area. 

Titus, you are such an important person in our family.  You bring joy to the room with endless silly things and laughs each day.  You might be quiet at times but I know your brain is constantly thinking of things all the time.  

You are a thoughtful kid, you see and act in a loving way.   You can be sensitive at times which is okay and teaching me to help you learn to deal with hurts and pain.  

This last year you showed us you love soccer and are really good at it!  You are starting to be a great reader!  You love school and your teacher!  You have a lot of great friends and even though you have a few kids that don't always play fair you are learning to be an includer and friend no matter what.  

No matter what we are blessed that God let us be your parents!  I love being your mom!  

Hugs and kisses,

Love Mom!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
