Well, it's been a long time coming, but here's a really speedy recap of 2 birthday parties for 3 little boys.
First, it was Shorty's 1st birthday. We had a lot of green stuff left over from last year's Oz fiesta for the twins, so that got me thinking about reusing some of it. Which led to all things green and what little boys love. Naturally, this led to frogs. I must admit that, as this party developed, I didn't really end up reusing much from last year. Oh well. It was cute anyway.
The cake & some of the party hats:
We also had cattails (chocolate-dipped pretzels), worms (veggie sticks), swamp punch, sandwiches with no clever name, and an assortment of green fruit to munch on.
The kiddos played outside with tons of toy frogs, sand, water, a bubble maker, and all of our other toys. They went home with little galvanized buckets with toy frogs and bubbles and kazoos.
Here's the birthday boy and his cupcake.
In case you didn't know, that is a squeal of pure joy.
Next, on to the Dynamic Duo. They love Batman & Robin and watch the old-school movie over and over again. So that made it easy to decide on a party theme (and Halloween costumes).
Here's the cake & cupcakes -- it's hard to see, but there's a Batman & a Robin action figure on top of each cupcake stand:
No, they didn't turn 33.
Also served up were Catwoman's claws (Bugles), Penguin's party chips & dip (served in a "top hat"), Hero sandwiches, Mr. Freeze's ice cream, and Poison Ivy punch (same green punch as for the froggy party). The kids made their own super hero capes & masks and played and played.
Here are the little heroes opening up some presents:
Hooray for parties!
Hooray they are D.O.N.E.
