Jason's Birthday Party

On Saturday we celebrated Jason's birthday. We decided to do a Star Wars Jedi Training party. At first I was not sure how to do one. But, thanks to the internet Jason got to have a wonderful birthday party. I made the invitations. They turned out pretty neat. With the boys help I made a pinata. It was the death star. It took a little time each day since I made two just case. But I think it was worth it. I also made light sabers for all the kids. They loved them. If they could play light sabers the whole time they would have been happy. We had pizza and Yoda punch. The pizza was good but the Yoda punch was pretty bad. I think next time I will just do juice. I kinda felt bad because this was the one time that I let my kids drink soda (there was soda in the punch) and it was horrible. Oh well, Jason does not like soda anyway he always says that it is spicy because of the carbonation. I made a light saber cake. I made that also. It turned out alright. However, one kid told me that I made a fake cake. I was like what? "He told me it was not made from real frosting." "I told him it was real right from the box and carton to you." I had no time to make a cake from scratch I went through three boxes of cake mixes before I figured out how to do it just right. We played some wonderful games they were: unfreeze Han Solo. I froze Han Solo and had the kids divide up into two different groups and dunk him water until he was out of the ice. Then they had to free Princesses Leia from the Death Star. The kids had to pop some black balloons and in one of them was a girl lego person with hair. I was informed that she did not look like Princesses Leia I told the kids to use their imaginations. The kids also helped Darth Vader find his Light Saber. I bought a star wars poster and made some Light Sabers with craft sticks. Then, the kids tried to place the light saber in Darth Vader's hand. Overall I say the party went great. I sure could not have done with out the help of two wonderful parents. In the morning my friend Michelle came over early and helped me with some of the decorations and even changed a diaper for me. Then, during the party Ellie watch the younger boys. Without the help of these two wonderful ladies, I would have been stressed out beyond belief. I am glad that I have such wonderful friends and that my kids do too.
