The Lego Batman Movie is coming out this week and the kids and I can’t wait to see it in theater! We loved the first Lego Movie, and the new Batman version looks hilarious. I have been following The LEGO Batman Movie on Facebook and the clips they share always crack me up.
When I saw that the release date for the movie was just a couple weeks before my son’s 7th birthday, I knew immediately that it would make a great party option for him and his friends. I will admit that it took a little convincing to get him on board with the idea since he had his heart set on laser tag, but seeing the previews has made him just as excited as me. He is still a bit young for laser tag, so we will keep that as an option for a future birthday party.
For our ice cream social this year, I decided to go with a Peanuts theme and wanted matching themed costumes to get a cute photo of my kids for the invitation. Since seeing the Peanuts Movie way back in the winter, I have had it in my mind that my son would make a great Charlie Brown and his blonde haired little sister would be the perfect Sally.

I often go off on tangents on Pinterest. I will run into one pin I like and then get pin crazy with that idea/theme. That is what happened with my recent party I put together to celebrate a late Father’s Day/early Birthday for my husband. It started with seeing one root beer recipe, and that quickly snowballed into a whole menu of root beer recipe and a matching themed party inspired by Dad’s brand Root Beer.

For my son’s 6th birthday party this year it was no surprise when he said he wanted a Minecraft theme. Around the time he turned 5, he started to get interested in Minecraft from watching YouTube videos and began begging for months to get the Minecraft app for his ipad. I was very hesitant to get it since he was younger then the recommended age and I assumed he would require a lot of help from me. I finally let him download it in the Fall and since then have continued to be amazed by the things he builds and the knowledge he has gained from the game. I still not sure I fully understand the whole concept, but I know it has been a lot of fun for him and was happy to use it as this year’s party theme.
