I’m so late in getting this posted but I had a lot of trouble with my blog and those loose ends needed tidied up before I posted anything new. Nate’s birthday was indeed a couple of months ago now and this year we chose to stay at home and have a few people over. My littlest man hasn’t yet been to nursery school or anything so he hasn’t the same amount of friends to invite to a big party like Ollie does, so a small celebration at home was perfect.
He dressed up as Hulk to answer the door to our friends and family… the theme was Avengers, so we had avengers table decor and Ollie drew all the characters on the blackboard in the dining room. I also made a Hulk cake.
Instead of party bags that we normally do, I made up little bags of mixed sweeties and chocolate and tied them with a Hulk label that said “Thanks for coming to my party”.
We got him one of the huge number balloons that are filled with helium and he loved it. He dragged it about from room to room.
Most of the friends that came are friends of Ollie’s who, since Nate was born, have taken to him also. They are all very good with him and include him as much as they can. We have the same group over for most birthdays and Halloween!
The food we served consisted of sandwiches, pizza, chips, chicken nuggets, tortilla chips and salsa, grapes, cookies, sausages and potato salad and my mum made a huge pot of her amazing pumpkin soup.
I also bought limeade, which Nate called “Hulk juice” because it was bright green and he took to calling the grapes “Hulk grapes” too.
Nate loved the Hulk cake… the second Hulk cake in a week, but by far the easier one because I just iced the cake green and put a Pop Vinyl Hulk on top of it.
He opened his presents when everyone went home and he got awesome gifts. He was given some clothes, puzzles, stickle bricks, building blocks that are blackboard that you can draw on with chalk, a huge toy airplane, a transformer truck, TMNT boxers and a gorgeous Superman dressing gown!. Both boys were run ragged after the party and so was I! HAHA!
Thank goodness there is a few months before the next one!
