A Birthday Week

My middle one turned 7 this week- If your a regular reader, you indulged me with a few adorable pictures of him growing up a few days ago. We had a fun time celebrating his big golden birthday!!
I am a big believer of celebrating the birthday ALL DAY LONG. So we started with birthday baloons at the kitchen chair to white powdered donuts for breakfast (his favorite) to a special lunch and his pick for dinner (oh joy! It was McDonald's!). And Momma took cupcakes in to his class as well:
And he got exactly what he wanted as well...poor boy needed a new bike badly! His knees came up to his ears when he rode his old one!!
We celebrated with friends...approximately fifteen of them all at my house...with a Mad Science Party. I received a lot of sweet comments from my friends on facebook asking me what I did and complimenting me on a great idea for a party. My friends, the most work I did on this party was to write check to the sweet girl who was our "Mad Scientist!" Oh, and I made these fun goody bags. It's the Pop Rocks & Coke experiment!

We started the party out with the Coke & Mentos geyser, which would have been super fun, had Momma NOT knocked over the coke as she ran away to NOT get sprayed with coke! Oh well, we tried it again and got a mini-geyser. The boys loved it!
Heather, our Mad Scientist, had some fun tricks up her sleeve, including disappearing fire paper. See her lighting it??
And this flame completely disappears!!
She also made the lightbulb light up, which surprised a few boys!
And lastly, we had indoor fireworks, seen only with their super-duper cool fireworks glasses!
As a gift, she taught them all how to make slime!
Sissy, hanging with the boys!



Once all was over, Matt & I looked at each other and said "never again." But looking back at pictures and seeing how much fun Brody had, it was all worth it!! Fifteen boys and all!

You are BRAVE woman! Evie's turning 8 and we are DONE with big parties - she's getting lunch and a movie with a couple of friends that's all I can handle anymore :) What a great idea for a boy party though - William would love it!

That's a great idea! (However, my boys generate slime all on their own... ew.) I love the happy faces! Good job mom!
