Let's go to the Movies!!

Nolan had his first "friends" birthday party last weekend! We had so much fun planning and preparing for his movie themed bash!
Nolan's invite and Popcorn Bucket cupcakes...
I designed the bucket, printed it out, cut the top with a scalloped scissors and taped it on to the cupcake baking cup. The "popcorn" on top of the cupcake is made with cut marshmallows glazed with diluted yellow food coloring! They were a big hit with the kiddos! And looked pretty real!
and his birthday chair!
Goodie Bags for the kids!

Nolan's friends were all dropped off at our house! Rylan was the first to arrive...Nolan was watching out the window and saw his car pull up. He ran to the door and shouted, "My friends are here, my friends are here!" He was pumped for a day of his favorite things!
Everybody piled into the car and we were off to the MOVIES!
Can you tell they were excited?!
Ready to go into the movie theater! (Left to Right: Nolan, Rylan, Payton, Alaina, Brady, and Addie) We saw "Tangled"! It was super cute...especially the little chameleon!
Watching the previews! They all did awesome watching the movie and loved munching on popcorn & candy!
After the movie we came back to our house for pizza, presents, and cupcakes!
The usual CHEESY smile with his birthday chair!
He was very excited to get the DVD "Despicable Me"!
He also got Mr. Freeze and The Penguin for his Batman set!
Nolan got a lot of Duplos for his birthday! He LOVES them! When he opened this one he said, "This is what I needed!" He and Mark have a lot of fun building creations and playing with the Duplo people and cars!
Blowing out his candles! He seriously has the funniest method for blowing out the candles! He blows through his teeth. His face cracks me up! Check it out below!

And he obviously LOVED his new toy...it had to join him for the singing!
One last smile before he dug into his delicious but oh so crumbly cupcake! After 6 kids ate them our floor was one crummy mess!

Nolan just had the best time at his first "friends" party! He has talked about it every day since! He tells me who sat where in the car and in the theater, who got him what, and what everybody's favorite part of the movie was! It is so fun to make these memories for him and to watch him truly be so excited when having new experiences! Thank you to all his friends who came to party with him! You helped make his day so special!
