Ethan's Birthday

Wow, time is flying by lately.  I can't believe my baby boy is five!  He's getting taller and more grown up looking by the day and I wish I could stop the clock somehow.  So since I can't do that, I'll just enjoy each moment with him.  We threw him a circus themed party this past Saturday and here are some highlights.  Beware, I have a lot of photos.

 I made all of the banners and signs.  It's really a fun party to throw.  Unfortunately, I didn't take a picture of table until after the kids had ransacked it.

This was the candy table.  I made the gumball machines from a terracotta planter and a dollar tree bowl.  Then I just filled them with candy.  Also, I made cookies by simply cutting out a basic shape with a knife (I couldn't find a tent cutter) and then decorating it with royal icing.  The kids also got mini gumball machines as thank you gifts.

What's a circus party without games?  We had a bean bag toss, 3-in-a-row toss, can toss, ring toss, balloon throw, and of course, a photo booth with some props.

We also had a jumper for the kids.  It was hard getting them out of it to sing to the birthday boy.

Happy Birthday, Ethan!  We love you so much and you bring so much joy into our lives.  You are such a character and it's an honor to watch you grow up into the person God has created you to be.

Thanks for stopping by!
