I say 4-5 because depending on who you ask, how you count, and how long you want to argue about it, it's either 4 OR 5 days from today. (But just for the record, I was there...I remember the day well...and I say...5 days, not counting today!) :)
Either way, party preparations are underway.
Nate decided weeks ago that he wanted a "Star Wars The Clone Wars Lego Party". So, that is what he will have. Or at least, what I will attempt to provide him. I'm always up for a challenge. (And, honestly, it's turning out to be little more than a barely recognizable conglomerate of various themes that somewhat resembles that suggested above but let me remind you, a party planner I am NOT!)
So, with the help of Pinterest, Google, various blogs such as this, and some fabulous friends and crafty relatives (whom are also FRIENDS!)...we currently have:
light sabers (which will be used in a game to test skill and teamwork, not just to beat each other with!)
and Jedi Knight robes for our little guests
We have Lego Man decorations
and Star Wars Lego Cupcake toppers (for cupcakes I have yet to make, of course!)
This weekend (again, thanks to the help of my person!) we'll be tackling some adorable Lego Cookies, some pretzel rod light sabers for favors and...(who am I kidding? That's plenty for one weekend!)
My very talented sister is attempting to draw a poster board Yoda to play "Pin the light saber on Yoda" at the party.
We'll celebrate his actual birthday in a low-key birthday-candle-in-a-cookie-while-out-to-eat sort of way. And then come next Saturday, it's PAR-TAY time! In the words of my beloved (soon-to-be) 6-year-old, I just hope not to "totally FREAK OUT!" :)
