On his actual birthday- I woke up early to decorate for him. The boys raced down the stairs and begged for the present from gramps! Zeb picked it out with gramps last week when they were in town- but he wasn't allowed to open it until his birthday. He was BEYOND excited.
the night of his birthday- kent got home at five (yippee!) and we went out to his primary teacher's house to roast marshmallows and hot dogs with friends. It was the perfect night for zeb!! and here's the one and only picture of kent and me. pictures of the two of us are pretty rare I've realized. I need to take more- preferably where I'm not stuffing food into my mouth.
with all of zeb's strange food aversions I canNOT believe he'll eat s'mores. He only takes one or two bites- but I still can't believe it.
Zeb kept seeing amazing crazy complicated star wars cakes online that he loved. He really wanted a giant general greivous cake- and if you know general greivous- you would realize that would even be a feat for duff- mr. ace of cakes himself. So- he got a much more tame cake. The dark side/light side cake- and a giant cupcake light saber. Not too shabby when I had an entire party to plan!
The day was really a lot of fun! we sent out these invites that I made on the walmart website for even cheaper than regular invites from the party store! zeb got VERY concerned that the date said June 2. We finally convinced him that a Saturday party was the best option- even if it was not actually ON his birthday.
we pod raced.
and then- once all of the kids became jedi masters- they had the chance to defeat darth vader. yes- we realize his light saber is the wrong color.
We only had tears from one party goer who was terrified of the Sith Lord.
We played "pin the light saber on the jedi"!
Zeb really got into it.
In the end we ate a delicious Star Wars lunch of Padawan Pizza- Droid berries- jedi juice- and more.
Here are Kent's famous 'Wookie cookies'. so amazing.
I love my little zeb. He is a good, sweet, obedient, and wonderful boy. I couldn't ask for a better kid.
