Happy Birthday Derek!

Derek wanted to have a Ben 10 Theme for his birthday party this year. If you are not familiar with Ben 10, check this out:Ben10cartoonnetwork.We invited all of the kids on the street, and his cousins. I wanted to invite more, but 15 was enough. And we had a blast!

Derek is so lucky to have so many good friends!

We made Alien Masks,

Searched the house for Alien Lava Rocks,

Got some cool prizes for playing a Bean Bag Toss game,

Made Alien Brains.... (Remember Gak?)

Created our own Aliens with the Martian Matter Maker,

And ran like crazy all around the house!

Then it was time to open some presents! Derek got lots of cool stuff from all of his sweet friends!

Derek had a cake that looked just like Ben 10's Omnitrix!

And we had Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream too, because it is also green and black! Everyone had a great time.......Almost!

Happy Birthday Derek....And we love you too Preston!

His level of tolerance was waining...did you notice how many times he left to shut himself up downstairs? I had to keep dragging him back up to take the pictures. Thanks for all your help!

Happy Birthday Derek. Sorry so late. I haven't been blogging too much lately. Having a new baby kinda takes up a lot of time. But what a cute party! You are such a fun mom.
