Jaden turned 5 way back in May, and in honor of that great event, we threw a friend party!
I told Luke that I would not go all Pinterest crazy with this party, since we had other things on our plate, too. (Luke was gone on a business trip the whole week leading up to the party, and I was in the throes of writing our Base Camp curriculum.) But when I started making little monsters, it was just SO FUN! It was hard to stop!
I spent part of that week up north at my parents’ house, so my little sis Alonna helped dream up the monsters’ faces on the treat bags and plushies…especially the eyebrows and mouths. They’re so cute, they make me squeal!
Then my awesome friend Amber drew the chalkboard sign for the front porch. She is totally hired for all of my kids’ future parties.
It takes a village, friends.
The photos will speak louder than my words, so I will stop talking and start uploading…
We are thankful for our 5-year-old boy, who makes us laugh often. He’s a delightful part of our family.
Can you tell?
