A Superhero Birthday Party!

May has been an unbelievably crazy, busy month for us. 
Here's the craziness in a list--

Brooklynn's 6th birthday "day out"
Asher's 4th Birthday party
Nate in Alaska for work
Trained...ran...ran...and ran
Ran the Portland Rock n' Roll Half Marathon
Quick girls trip to Seattle for the AdvoCare Womens Alive event
and Joyce Meyer in the Tacoma Dome
Memorial Day weekend beach trip
and hosting BUNCO tomorrow night. 

Whew!  It's been busy and crazy good.

This year, was Asher's first actual birthday party.  We decided it was definitely time to throw him a party, since this year he has been attending preschool and has made some friends of his own.  And guess what?  His class is made up of boys.  Only boys and 7 of them.  It's too cute.

Since Asher has been rocking his 2T Spiderman costume for two years, we knew that this 4th birthday party had to be all about superheroes--and that he needed a new Spidey costume!
And there wasn't a better way to start the day then to see
the movie, The Avengers in 3D.
Asher, his friend Koen and the Dads took them in costume to see the flick,
and they were enthralled.
Asher & Koen
Dad even dressed up as Hulk (after the movie)
Sugar Cookies with butter cream frosting--my best recipe!
There was also chips, pretzel rods, Super Sandwiches, Chocolate Dipped Confetti Oreos,
hot dogs and of course,


I found the most divine chocolate cupcake recipe.
So are the cream cheese and chocolate cream cheese frosting recipes from this same site!
And the frosting was a perfect consistency for frosting the cupcakes.
Fantastic paper party decorations via Vens Paperie
Marvel sticker set & Pez dispenser
(found at Michaels)

It was quite a SUPER day for our little Superhero!
Thanks to all our friends and family for their help and love this day!
Especially Aimee, who cut and glued SO much!

The party was "Super" fun and tasty. You went way past leaping over a tall building to make this party for Asher extra special! So glad to have been there! Well done Wonder Woman (just couldn't help it)!!

Oh you truly are your mama's daughter! As I was scrolling through the pictures, I was thinking that this is just like Connie's parties. :) You need to live closer to her, you two could have so much fun together! Very cute Cassie!

Cutest party ever. You went all out. I love it! And I love that Nate dressed up! Cool costumes! Wish I could have been there to help!


“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
