I’m not going to lie, I’m kind of happy to have this party behind me. It wasn’t my favorite theme, even though it was pretty easy to throw together, but the kids loved it so I guess my opinion doesn’t really count. 😉 (I have, however, already talked Susannah into a fun, girly theme for her birthday!) I don’t even know how this girl is already five. How do I not have any babies anymore? I’m half sad/half ecstatic about that fact and not sure which side will win out in the end.
Probably my favorite element of the party: the door sign. Thank you, Gru for voicing my sentiments exactly. 😉 **Update – I’ve had many requests for this printable and while (sadly) I did not save the original document, one of my kind readers, Erin, recreated it to share with all of you. Many thanks, Erin! Click here for the printable.
(Inspiration was from this site.)
The first batch of cousins. Sadly, I didn’t get a group photo of the entire set with Billy and Audrey. They were all too busy playing to sit still for something as boring as a picture. 🙂 It was nice having Heather and Caleb here for the party, especially since it was Mad’s specific request this year.
Dr Nefario is my second-favorite character from the movies so he made an appearance or two. 🙂
I seriously wanted to just buy some little cupcake flags or something, but Mad wanted a minion cake so I gave it my best shot. Don’t laugh.
There were a few people who hadn’t seen the movies, so they definitely didn’t understand about the caterpillars. 😉
He just cracks me up. The kids went wild for this concoction. It was crushed up freeze pops mixed with Sprite. *gag* They loved it though, especially since they got to drink it out of tiny test tubes.
Third time’s the charm….the kid has no lung capacity at all. I think this is the first time Billy hasn’t done the honors for her.
Scary minion goody bags to take home their shirts, ray guns, and anti-gravity serum.
The littlest minion of them all.
Mad says this was her favorite birthday so far. Did your kid have a favorite party theme? Did you like it too?
