Star Wars Birthday Party


My sweetheart Charlie turned 5 years old last Saturday, and he gets better and better every day.  He is my confidant, and somehow always knows what to do and what to say to help me out.

Saturday morning we celebrated him with a Star Wars birthday breakfast.  

^Charlie is STILL wearing this R2D2 book bag Mimi and Grandpa got him. 

^Light Saber cupcakes by Chelle Austen's Baked Goods

^Darth Vader (aka Grandpa) made an appearance, and the boys ATTACKED with their light sabers.  Before the party, my dad called and asked how many boys were going to be there.  After I told him, I thought, oh no...what is he going to bring??!  That morning, Dad brought every boy at the party a nerf gun.  So, all the boys were armed with a light saber and a nerf gun.  They loved it.  How often do little boys get the opportunity to just beat on each other (with full permission)?!  It was so entertaining and Charlie had the best time.  Grandpa knows how to have fun!


^Short break for a posed picture

^and back at it

I love breakfast birthdays....especially when they involve Chick-Fil-A chicken minis.  It was rainy and gross on Saturday, but we cleared out our garage, put up a tent on the outside, and let the boys have at it. 

It was a great bunch....these boys didn't even care that the weather was wonky....they played and ran and ate tons of doughnuts and minis and cupcakes.  

Happy Birthday, dear Charlie!

It looks y'all had a good time! The little boys I babysit try to educate me on Star Wars, but I forget all the names and who the good and bad people are. I need flashcards or something.
