He told me he wanted a "surprise party" for his 7th birthday. I tried to steer him away from that idea, but that's what he continued to describe for his birthday theme. I told him that lots of work went into planning a surprise party, and that we couldn't have the party at our home because he would see the decorations and party planning. He worked around that and informed me that I could surprise him at either Discovery Science Place, Jumping Jacks, or somewhere else that I already forgot. (Does he KNOW I just had a baby and this was going to be an epic amount of work and life force?!?) BUT, I pulled it off...and it was totally worth it. He also specified the theme for me: an alligator surprise party. No tall order there, right? What can I say? The kid knows what he wants. I have a feeling he gets that honest!
|Every year since his 1st birthday, I have made cookies for Noah's party---this year was the year of the alligator...so, navy & green gator cookies it was!|
|Gator cookies, gator gummies, gator cupcakes, & green jello (non-alcoholic; although, many parents requested that I re-think the whole non-alcoholic thing for the next party!)|
|All the kiddos got to take home their own gator hat. That was a hit.|
