Balloon Mania

Whew, we made it! There’s nothing quite like a pack of preschoolers on a cheerful rampage with their balloon lightsabers. The Star Wars party was a success and Q-ster told me he had a really good time, especially with the running game the kids made up.

They started charging from the living room through the foyer into the playroom, cutting across the kitchen and dining room, and back into the living room, taking turns running laps with the balloon bouquet bumping along behind and a trail of friends in hot pursuit, brandishing their lightsabers. It was a riot. A definite traffic hazard, but a happy riot.

Q-ster got shy during the cake and candles ceremony, so we didn’t get to see him blow out the candles on his Millenium Falcon cake, but the guests consumed it enthusiastically, and the little dude told me that he was pleased with how it looked. I thought he might expect more detail that I can execute with frosting, but the cake passed muster with the Jedi Master.

A quiet moment, resting up for more lightsaber duels. (Thanks for the photo, Des.)



May the Force Be With You.

your little Jedi is beautiful, as are all those shots. i particularly like the last one, with the balloons - he looks like he might take off.

I think I spotted Snow White in the midst of a light saber duel. Too cute!
