Spiderman Birthday Party!

What a great day! He had preschool that morning and was the "Special Helper" for the day. They sang to him and he got a balloon. I'll post tomorrow about the treats he handed out to his classmates.

I made a crepe paper web on the ceiling for the big Spiderman" party. I think he laid underneath it and looked up singing the Spiderman song for about 15 minutes. Cute.
Greg has been counting the "sleeps" until his party! I was excited to sleep after it.
February is Lauren's birthday, Valentine's, my dad's birthday and then Greg's birthday - all within 12 days of each other! Ack!
Grandpa and Grandma got Greg a new Spiderman shirt that lights up when you move. It was a tad big on him but he loved it.
Pin the spider on the web. I asked Greg after the party if he peeked (since he did get it right dead on) Sly grin and "Yes, I did so how come I didn't win mom?"
The birthday boy and Graham. Thankfully I was able to get their haircuts inbetween school and the party. Poor planning and rushed on my part but those boys were looking a bit shaggy earlier in the day!
Bad lighting but I LOVE the expression on Greg's face when he opened up his Spiderman jet. We bought him light up Spiderman shoes too. I really am not a fan of cartoon clothing but he is already a size 10.5/11 so I think this might be his last chance to wear a shoe like this. I figured who is it going to hurt?
Smashing the creepy bust of Spiderman. What a weird pinata that I paid too much for. Geesh. I think I might end this party tradition here and figure out a plan B.
Cute boys shooting their webs!Here comes some Spidermen!!

It was a great day. We went to Chili's for dinner with my parents afterwards and just hung out. Greg told me that he "will try to stay four" for me.
Awww - I wish!

Great party! Don't you wish they could stay four? Carsen loved the party and is still digging through his treat bag! (Oh, and that cupcake you sent home....I ate it! That was one good cupcake!)

I must get the lyrics to the spiderman song. My kids and I have made up our own variation. But I'm interested in knowing what the real one is...

Happy 4th... What a sweet age! His little baby photo is too precious! You did a great job on the decorations. I would never have thought to make a web with the streamer. Looks like they had fun!
