Lego Party

Since I was sooo busy this past couple weeks I didn't really do any planning or stressing- LOVED THAT!  But guess what it turned out just fine.

I set up a couple tables downstairs for LEGO PLAY, my daughter's room was the Art and Craft rea, the living room was where they could play Lego Rock Band (very fun).  The kitchen was for the adults. 

I downloaded invites from Lego.com and also invited friends on Facebook- made an event!

There was a cool site out that was far more into it than I was:

The party started at 3pm- free play, 4pm- pizza times, 4:30- gifts/cake eating and 5 was suppose to end of the party but it kept going to till 10pm. LOL! The adults I think had more fun than anyone :0. Fun was had by all!

The only thing I regret is I TOOK NO PICTURES! I busy with the party to think about pictures...UGH!

Wow...LONG Week- Need to Catch Up.

It's been over a week since my last post but it feels like a month.  I've been super duper busy and now I'm paying for it!  I'm falling behind and I hope I'll be okay for Christmas.

Last Saturday I help run the school's 1st Holiday Bazaar.  I tried all I could to get people there but hey a "1st Annual" might not sound has exciting as a "20th Annual" and man there were all events happening in the area.  We did fine though. My kids had a blast and made $30 each- making their own Xmas cards.  I'll take a picture and post soon.  My son drew his very own "Wimpy Kid" Xmas card. 

Sunday~ worked my butt off at the cafe.  Then came home to a house smelling like crab.  My hubby was making a GUMBO.  My friends came by through out the night and I felt the LOVE.  The Gumbo was yummy!!! My hubby was so proud and that he should be.  My mom tried it for the first time and didn't quite understand why the crab was still in the shell. 

Monday~ Well it was my 42 b'day and I had a GREAT DAY!  Mocha's was delivered to my house by a sweet friend of mine.  My mom took me to get my nails/toes done and that was perfect.  For a brief second I felt like a WOMAN not just a mom!  Hubby and I went out on a date and I had a couple drinks.

Wednesday~ My son's 9th B'day.  I had to work all day but he had a blast with grandma.  Last day of Mom's visit.  We took her to airport and she was charged sooooo much for her car rental so that was the icing on her trip down here.  Man did I feel bad!  I wanted her to have a great time but it was one thing after another plus her back was out- who could enjoy that! 

Thursday~ Babysat in the morning and took care of a sick lil girl. 

Friday- Got called into work...sigh.  Had big plans but hey if I can help out I will!  Needed to start getting ready for the PARTY on Saturday.

Saturday....LEGO PARTY!

My Dream Living Room

LOVE the colors!  I would take out the bench though.  I love this blue, black, pink, white together.  Would my husband let me decorate like this...NO!  He told me to STOP putting pink in every room. 

Just had to share...LOVE THIS LOOK!

Lego Party Ideas-Need them :)

My son wants to have a LEGO PARTY.  His best friend had a Lego party last month and its all he has been talking about.  I'm just lost in what to do. I know of course have a lot of Lego's so everyone can build something. 

I did some searching last online and came across a couple games:
~ Guess how many Lego's in a jar kind of thing.
~ Who can build the tallest Lego structure in so many minutes.

I have a wonderful friend looking into making a Lego cake for him.

I guess decorating in bright primary colors- blue, green, yellow, red!

We will order pizza for the food but I do want to have some other munchies...would love some more ideas about that!

If anyone has thrown a Lego party can you please leave some ideas for this mom who just can't think of much!
