Brock's 6th Birthday - LEGO Style

It's still hard for me to believe that I have a 6 year old in Kindergarten.
I think I say something to that effect every year around birthday time...
But it's TRUE.
This year Brock has been all about LEGOS.
So, we of course went with the LEGO theme. 


Balloons courtesy of A Pink Poppy Balloons & Flowers in Urbana.
Lisa is always a pleasure to work with and does a GREAT job!
Be sure to go check her out on Facebook HERE for all your balloon and floral needs!

And how seriously CUTE are these LEGO cookies from The Sweetest Thing?
It doesn't matter what your theme is, Nikki can make cookies that will work perfectly!
And not only are they stinkin' CUTE, they are DE-LISH!  
You really need to check out some of her other art work on facebook HERE because she really is a cookie artist!  You can also visit her blog HERE where I notice she has a special going on for Valentine's Day (or Groundhog's Day!) cookies ordered by January 31st, you'll get 10% off! 
Thanks, Nikki!!!!!!  :)

Super SIMPLE favor bags.  
I used my cricut to cut out circles and then used some of those glue dots that make things look 3-D to stick them on.  Inside the bags I put some LEGO crayons, coloring sheets, a LEGO memory game, and of course a cookie!

As an additional party favor and fun activity to do during the party, I found these Bat-mobiles at Target and the boys got to put them together and then have races on a ramp that TJ built. 

And how GREAT is his shirt?
My sweet friend from church, Kathy, made it for him.
I gave her a TON of notice on what I wanted...
No, not really.
It was another wild hair up my fanny ideas and I'm just LUCKY that she is so flexible and great to work with.... Plus, she loves us.

Hmmmm.... I wonder who won that race?
I love his face.

And then it was time for some bounce house fun.
We had rented a bounce house from a rental company in town, but when we got it inside the building, what do you know?  It was too big and almost went through the ceiling.  A little dramatic, but what party of mine goes perfectly without a hitch or little excitement?
So, back to the rental company it goes, thank goodness they gave me a refund since it isn't exactly their busy season.  But in the mean time, I've got 5 boys running around, wrestling on the floor, with nothing to do since the thrill of racing their cars had worn off.... I call TJ in a sweat.  Off he heads to ToysRUs to purchase a bounce house and saved the day.  Wasn't exactly looking to purchase a bounce house that day, but now we've got one.  It'll come in handy in the spring and maybe if I ever get my basement in order.... Right? 

Happy 6th Birthday, Brockers!!!!
