Blake's 8!

Blake turned 8 yesterday! Where did the time go?! I can't believe it's been 8 years since his chunky little 9 lb 14 oz butt became part of our family. We love you big guy!


We had some difficulty deciding on a theme this year. First it was Star Wars, then Backyard Adventures, then the movies... But we ended up with Lunar Mini Golf. It's putt-putt played in the dark. There is a bunch of black lights & everything is lit up with neon tape or paint. So instead of t-shirts, I ended up going with visors. We got $1 foam visors & some neon puff paint from Michaels, and wrote everyone's names on them. It turned out great since you couldnt really see who was who!



Layla....


Morgan...


Trey (cousin) & Blake. (I found that shirt at Walmart & thought it would be perfect to wear!)



Some of the art on the wall...








The whole gang in the dark...



And with flash!



The cake... It's a moon with an alien playing golf! (a Ben 10 alien, who thought finding a little alien guy at the store would be so hard? I ended up raiding Blake's toys).


That's a lot of candles!



I think today I'm going to get the house straightened back up and maybe try & finish a project. Hope you have a great day!!



Don't forget about my paint party coming up! Have you done anything with your free Glidden paint? Or any paint for that matter? If so, I want to see it! Come back here on September 28 to share what you've done! Please, spread the word, this is my first party!

I haven't done anything with my free paint yet but I'll try before the party!
