Dino-mite Birthday

We celebrated Bubba's birthday last weekend!  We were blessed with perfect weather.  Thanks to inspiration from Pinterest I was able to put together a nice dinosaur themed party with not a lot of effor or money.

I cut out some tracks leading up to the front door.  See the pumpkin we never carved from Halloween?

My wonderfully creative friend took care of the cake.  I made 2 chocolate round cakes. She used chocolate frosting and crushed chocolate chip cookies.  I bought the dinosaurs from Dollar Tree.
My sweet sister-in-law made cupcakes and we added dino tracks to them.
Lime sherbet and 7up for the Prehistoric Punch.

I bought dino-shaped chicken nuggets and the Bugles were a big hit!
The herbivores had a veggie tray.

My husband's aunt used the Cricut to make the dinosaurs and my friend drew the landscape..  About a year ago we took down the mirror that was in dining room and covered the area with chalkboard paint.

I used free dino themed printables.

It was the perfect day to play outside.  Poppa kept the kiddos entertained. 

Store-bought sugar cookies.  Right after I took them out of the oven Big Sis used a toy dinosaur to make fossil cookies for the treat bags.

Instead of gifts we asked for donations of diapers that we donated to a ministry for women in crisis pregnancies.  Our friends and family were very generous.  The best gift was being together to celebrate our sweet boy!  Next post will be an update on all the fun things the kiddos are learning.
