This weekend we got to celebrate Mattias' 6th Birthday!! Totally cliche and expected but I honestly cannot believe that I have a 6 year old!! It just all happened so fast even though in the moment (mostly around the 3 year stage) it felt like life was moving at a snails pace. Well, once again we celebrated another year of his life.
Now, I should start off by confessing that since I get really nervouse about being super lame I have to admit that I haven't had a real party for Mattias since his 1st birthday - awful I know - I can hear your gasps of horror through my computer ;) I just have so many friends that are amazing at throwing a party that I was petrified and figured Mattias wouldn't really know anyway. Well, this year he did know and he has been asking about a party for the past 6 months so I knew I wasn't going to get away without planning one.
It was 2 hours of complete chaos. 12 boys for just Paul and I to entertain. About 5 minutes into it Paul and I gave each other looks of "What have we done?" but all in all it seemed to go exactly as one would expect. Loud, chaotic and tons of begging for cupcakes. Here are a few shots of the party!
Since I'm all about pictures, we thought it would be fun to make a little photo wall that the kids can stand in front of and pose for a few pics. I designed a sort of retro superhero wall and made it into decals. I was so happy with how it turned out and it was so fun to see the look on Mattias' face when he saw it for the first time.
We had a little game of "Pin the star on the Captain America shield".
Then I called upon my ridiculously talented friends that saved my butt in the food department! We got cupcakes made by Elysha of Delysh Designs!
and sugar cookies made by Julie at The Whisk!
I HIGHLY recommend both of these ladies if you live in the lower mainland! I just sent them my theme and ideas and they made them into reality! Both ladies are FANTASTIC to work with :)
All in all it was a great time and I loved see Mattias with all of his little friends. Thank goodness I have a whole year to recuperate till the big 7!
Happy Birthday Mattias! you are one special boy that has an infectious smile and a joyful heart that shines every day! I am so blessed to be your mom xo
