Tre's Party

Well our little boy is growing up!! We celebrated Tre's 4th birthday today with a SpiderMan party! And we had a blast!!

For decorations I went a little crazy! We used streamers to make a webbed ceiling in our TV room; the kids loved that! Our friend, Shelly, drew a SpiderMan on our easel w/ a Happy Birthday Tre sign. And then we created a little web/SpiderMan guy right in entrance-way hall, so when Tre came home with TJ from getting SpiderMan balloons he was bombarded with SpiderMan stuff! He was a little overwhelmed!!

For our first game we went outside and put on SpiderMan masks and had a silly string fight (it was our "web", get it?!) The adults had fun!! The kids... not so much. Colin just stood next to the patio couch out of the way, and Tre started in the game with us, but got too upset with the mess and started crying. Oh well...

The next game was a pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey type game. We had SpiderMan stickers to put on a SpiderMan poster with bad guys around him. If you put a sticker on a bad guy you got points. But the boys just basically liked putting the stickers on SpiderMan, they didn't quite get the point of the game. Oh well...

We moved onto presents. Tre got a "The Flash" T-Shirt ("The Flash" is a superhero that runs really fast, we thought this was appropriate since Tre says his superpower is running fast!), a soccer ball (we signed him up to play in the Sonshine Soccer league starting soon!), UNO, and a Toy Story marker coloring book. And in his card he got $5 Davis Dollars (he was really excited about that!) Then came more games... Tre played Wii with Bryan Geer, Ben, and Shelly. And we pulled out an inflatable jumpy toy that Colin had a blast with. So we basically spent the rest of the evening with those two games, and had dinner & dessert too!

We took some video, which TJ says he'll post sometime, somewhere. Clear as mud, right? Anyway, Tre's actual birthday is Tuesday so we'll continue the celebrations then with a pizza night and maybe even a movie! Then we've got six weeks until Colin's birthday! But I'm sure I'll post some more craziness from the yellow house before then!!
