Tate has been talking about his 5th birthday party since the day after his 4th birthday party. He decided then that he wanted to have a Star Wars themed party and he never changed his mind so we had plenty of time to plan.
For a couple of months before his birthday he would wake up early and ask to snuggle with me. Then he'd say, "Mom, could we just look at Star Wars party ideas on your ipad for a while?" He had quite the list of party games and refreshments that he wanted to have but he was fine with the tapered down list we ended up with.
He invited a couple of friends from preschool and some friends from church. It was a great, manageable party.
Then we did some Jedi training. Each kiddo got a light saber pool noodle and had to keep their "training ball" from hitting the ground.
Tate was super spoiled by all his friends and family. He opened presents at the party and then later that night too. He was one happy boy. His party was just what he wanted which made me so happy.
Love you Tate. I'm glad you had a fantastic birthday!
