finn's party


like last year, i decided to have a little weekday morning party for finn's birthday.  just moms and little kids over for breakfast while the big kids are at school and the dads are at work.  we were gifted a star wars cupcake set, and so we decided to run with that as our little theme (and it helps that finn has been a bit of a diehard star wars fan since we forced him as a baby to dress up as r2d2...).  on a super random whim, i decided it would be fun to make jedi robes for all the kids...  a little crazy, i know, but luckily i have a mother-in-law who is always willing to jump on board with these ideas, and so we had them made in no time.  they are unhemmed and a little rough looking and i may have been sewing the hoods on the morning of the party... but it all turned out great and (most of) the kids loved them.  and so it was that each goody bag came with your very own jedi robe (just don't judge my sewing skills by them)...


clearly finn was (and definitely still is) very pleased with his jedi robe...


i made waffles and breakfast burritos and everyone just ate and played in the yard.
as usual, when it is my own party, i don't get as many pictures as i would like, but you get the idea...


bev made this book with a "secret compartment" cut into the middle.
it has been finn's prized possession since...


i think morning breakfast parties might be my very favorite.
