Birthday stuff


My oldest sons birthda is this week. Here are a couple of pics from his past birthdays. Last year we did pirates. I made this pirate cake. For favors I painted treasure chests. We did a treasure hunt. Along the way all the kids got little goodies to put into their treasure chests.
The year before that we had a cowboy party. I made a Woody and Jessie cake with clouds on it like the ones in Toy Story. For party favors that year I decided all 11 guests needed a handstitched stick pony pencil and a customized notebook to go with it. It was super cheap to do and all the kids loved it. This year we're having a space party in 2 dys. I have no idea what kind of cake to do. However we are having very cute party favors. I'm making flannel boards and pictures to go on them. We just need to figure out what games we'll be playing, what we're doing for the cake and wrap the presents, then we'll be good to go. I can get this all done by Tuesday, right?

(i´ll try to write something in english in my blog, i promise, but it takes me such more time... that´s what i didn´t do it yet because, obviously, is easier for me to write everything in spanish!!

Those cakes are adorable! I love the ponies the best. :) A space bday sounds really fun! A couple cake ideas popped into my head as I was reading: one shaped like a rocket, or regular round cupcakes frosted to look like different planets and maybe even little aliens sitting on top. OR the cupcakes could be rockets if you attach 3 little "fins" around the bottom. I just don't know how you'd make the cone-shaped top. How fun, I wish I was there to help you!

A planet cake (either the cake is one planet, like Earth, or it represents the solar system and has little planets all around it -- frosted on top or made out of Sculpty and on toothpicks)? Have fun -- I think that making birthday parties is one of the best parts of parenthood!
