Lego Birthday

It's been awhile and I need and want to document the boy's LEGO birthday party from 2014.
Alex turned 3 and Evan turned 5 and they are obsessed with legos. Since their birthdays are SO close we had another double birthday party.

(To see their previous birthday party details and ideas, click below)

E's 1st birthday party- polka dots
E's 2nd birthday party- Toy Story  and here are the (decorations/games/food) 
A's 1st birthday and E's 3rd birthday party- Super Heroes  (This was one of my favorite parties ever!)
A's 2nd birthday- Bubble Guppies (2nd favorite party!)
E's 4th birthday- Transformers
A's 3rd and E's 5th Birthday- Lego

I'm so excited to share some of the Lego birthday ideas we did for their party.

I can't believe Alex is 3 and Evan 5 already! Crazy how time flies.

Shirts from MyEmmyBaby on Etsy. I love these shirts and more importantly so did the boys. Love how she personalized them and love the quality.

Invites were from ArtHomer on Etsy and I loved them! SO fun!

Here are just a few of the decorations. We used red wrapping paper and covered our door to make it look like a giant lego. We used round, red paper plates (all from the $1 store) to put on the door to make it look real. For the plates and cups, I again, got dollar store plates and cups in yellow and just used a magic marker to draw on them lego faces. For the utensils, the boys had built a house and we just didn't put the roof on to hold the forks and spoons. 

One of the games we played was Pin the head on the Lego Man. I drew a lego man onto posterboard and then found these printables of the masks HERE. I love them. I printed out one set for the game and made a second set and made them into masks that the guests and boys could play with and take home. 

Cookies were from ATrufflePopShoppe and they were delicious. We got the candy legos and Lego necklaces off Amazon and I made the party bags.

I made the Alex 3 and Evan 5 printable in Photoshop with Lego font
and the Happy Birthday banner was from A Print Affair

 I also made a photobooth from a tri-fold cardboard display board (also from the dollar store) and drew on the characters and cut the hole out with an exacto-knife. This was hilarious!!

Lego candles were also from Amazon. 

We set up a few Master Builders stations around the living room for their friends and the parents to just free build. It was such a fun, relaxing party watching the kiddos build and be creative!

Check out my Pinterest Board for more Lego ideas too!

After the party it was lego time! :)

12 of 12 recap

I LOVE this project that I started from Amy Gretchen. Her blog is
I started this in 2013 and I am in LOVE. Being able to focus on 12 things for each month has really made me more aware of our everyday lives. Sure, we always try to document the big things, birthdays, holidays, school, vacations, BUT being able to slow down and become more conscious of our everyday life. It's fantastic! A great way to document your life and small moments. 
It's helped me try to be more creative with my photography. It's great to be able to look back throughout the year and see what we were doing on the same date for each month. My boys LOVE reminding me that it is the 12th. They give suggestions on what my 12 for the day could be. :)
I love being able to capture our lives. It goes TOO fast.
Here are my 12 of 12 from 2013 (top) and 2014 (below monthly 2013). I'm excited to see what next year looks like!
