I kept it simple. Friday, I made a bunch of sugar cookies with the ready-made cookie dough and made them into Christmas shapes. I got a ton of candy, and frosting that I dyed red and green. The boys had a lot of fun decorating their Christmas cookies. Then we had cake and ice cream and opened presents. Super simple because Christmas is busy enough. I was worried nobody would come. But almost everyone was able to make it. :) Kaleb loves to play with his friends, and be silly, and today he got to do both, so he had a really great day. I think that's awesome. :D
These are the goodie bags. I found them in the dollar section at Target. They are peppermint truffles, and a pair of Christmas socks! How cute are they!?
My stack of cookies.
Aren't these napkins and plates too cute to eat off of?
The sugar table.
My birthday boy.
A couple of friends.
I think Tyler is having fun.
Kaleb's cake is a star shape. It's strawberry cake with chocolate frosting and sprinkles.
His friend gave him a Nerf Gun!
And so did his cousins!
Grandma Bonnie gave him a game!
And so did his friend!
His best friend gave him a Lego set! Heaven!
After the presents, we played with his new toys til their parents came to pick them up!
I like easy parties. We put the presents under the tree, too. But for his birthday, we do that every year. He really likes it. I don't know how long that will last, but I am so glad he has a good attitude about having his birthday so close to Christmas. :)
