My oldest just turned 7 years old this past weekend. Seven years old... Where has the time gone?! Its as if yesterday I was wheeled into the delivery room and now he's a walking, talking, little question-filled boy. Its been amazing, trying, tiring... a long journey that seems to have passed in the blink of an eye.
This year he wanted a Star Wars themed party. He loves watching the Star Wars Clone Wars cartoons on Netflix or the Rebels on cable. And with the new movie coming out soon, its a family thing all around. I didn't have the time or resources to do too much this year, but thanks to Pinterest, I was able to find ideas to decorate and make it fun with.
I printed out this cool little certificate.
Then came decorating cups and water bottles with R2-D2 labels.
The cake was awesome though. HEB had this one with the Vader mask that makes that breathing sound we love so well.
I hung Star Wars dangle decorations, had a table cover, and a few other things I had picked up on clearance at Target. While most of the people invited weren't able to join us as the weather wasn't cooperating, some of my ex's adult friends stopped by.
The kids enjoyed just having visitors for a change.
The following Monday, my ex in laws asked to take the boys out to Chuckee Cheese.
They had pizza and played games.
So much fun! I treasure these moments I have with them. They are fleeting and pass me by so quickly.
