Evan turns 6!!!

Finally found the cord to my camera, and the kids are playing Wii so I have some time on my hands. So I thought I would blog about his party while I'm here!

We invited the 10 boys in his kindergarten class to a race party! It was really fun, and only two boys couldn't make it and they were both going out of town. So we wound up with 9 little boys but we somehow survived! Kira also got to invite a friend over to play, so they did that and the girls were really good.

Blowing out the candles. You know, the pic you *have* to get! :)
We played red light, green light, and musical cones, but it was all we could do to keep them from erupting into absolute chaos so no pictures from any of that. The coloring craft is a little back pack and then we did a pinata and they got to put their candy in that. I also found some fun NASCAR stuff at the dollar store for them. The craft was the only time it was sort of quiet. I also had a brilliant moment and brought out the legos and some hotwheels and they did really well. It was a fun party, and I have to tell you I think the biggest hit was the koolaide out of the gas can! :)

KookAide in a gas can is awesome! For a quick throw together party you did good mom! :)

We loved it but that 88 poster needs shredded........don't want him to get bad ideas! And you are so clever with gas can koolade and 'nuts & bolts'! How fun!

LOL! Mom, you are funny. It was decor from the dollar store, what do you want!? :OP

Evan doesn't know or care. He loves the Lowes car though.

I wish I were clever, I'm just good at taking ideas from the net and making them my own. I got the gas can idea from a party on the Hostess with the Mostess blog that was robot themed, and I believe it was "Oil" for that party. Same with the nuts and bolts, thought that would apply nicely to my race thing. I don't have many "original" ideas. Sad but true!
