More Superhero Party!

To start the party out the kids decorated their own masks!

Then we took Super Hero Pictures!

The Super Birthday Boy!

All the kids looked Super cute!

We had some games to test their Super skills. We ate donuts without using our hands...or tried to! Meg's did Super Hero training exercises and Mel did a run through things thing!

All these games/tests were to prepare them for any bad guys that would show up...and you spot who our bad guy was?

We also took some "flying" pictures.

Good thing there were Superheroes at the party because the sky kept falling down! After putting it up for the fourth time...I just duct tape what was left of it to the house!...stupid wind! But still a SUPER party!

Superhero Party!

I had the most fun putting Super PB's birthday together!

I could barely walk to church the next day after climbing up and down and up and down to hang these balloons! And as you can tell we had some wind...so my table cloths would not cooperate...as well as everything else that was hanging!

You wouldn't believe how hard it is to come up with names for food!

Mel and I spent a lot of time trying to decide what we could call everything!

But it was totally worth it!

PB has been asking me about his Super Hero Birthday Party since January and I think it came together pretty much perfectly!

But I cannot take all the credit, Mel did a ton of work! And pretty much all the food...I helped a little, but food really isn't my forte! My kitchen expertise is limited to rolling cake balls, adding food color, and buying candy!

But none of this would have been possible if not for the Silhouette Mel and I bought!

It makes all the difference! We wouldn't have been able to make half the stuff we did without it!

Despite planning this party since January, we did most of the work day before!

Yeah, let's be honest...I'm the coolest Auntie...Ever!

We spray painted metal trays from the Dollar Store and lined them with extra comic book covers!

We made Super Hero Treat Bags for all the kids! Along with Capes and Medals...but I'll have to find more pictures of the those!

For the back drops I downloaded comic book covers the printed them at Staples! It was all pretty easy...just a little time consuming gluing everything together!

But seriously it was the coolest party ever!

...and there is more to come!!

Superhero Invitations!

Who's ready for a party?!?

I was super excited about how AWESOME these turned out!!

Now I just need to decide what to wear! I've thought about going as Poison Ivy...because she's been my favorite Batman character since I was like eight...but I don't think people would appreciate me walking around in a green swimsuit and tights at a kids party!
