Oh to be Ten

This weekend my family and I went to a Birthday party for my brother's buddy turning 10. We had a ball! My friend Sara had some adorable ideas!

Angry Bird cake decorated with M&Ms...

The cake looked and tasted amazing! Decorating with a candy mosaic is perfect for those like me who DO NOT have a steady hand with icing. Plus, the white M&Ms were Almond Joy ;)

Chalkboard paint on the fireplace creates a palette for a new greeting to fit every occasion!

My favorite part of the party were the games :)

1. Lego Creations

Each player recieved a bag of lego pieces. We were assigned an object to construct such as a....

 House * Spaceship* Robot

 All were given a few minutes to complete the task. When time was up, the birthday boy acted as judge and chose the best creation! Each round we passed our legos down to try with new pieces.

I loved our robots!

2. Lego Relay

There were two teams. Each team had a bucket of legos and a set of chopsticks. The goal was to transfer as many legos as possible from the bucket to an empty  on the other side of the room using the chopsticks!

My team won :)

Sara has tons of other awesome ideas! She shares her wonderful home and creativity at
Sara's Art* House!
I decided to go back to being a 10 year old....they have all the fun! ;)

They are so beautiful and welcoming! Just brings a smile to my face when I walk through the door :)

3. New gloves.

I am quite pleased with my new gloves from Target. There is nothing worse than being unable to feel your hands in the cold, but these are so warm!

4. A skirt for any season.

One of those thrift store finds that is a staple all year long! LOVE!

It's so nice to be warmed on the inside on a cold, windy day!
