Intrigued? You’re going to have to wait for it . . . (Jenny, you may want to just skip this whole post, but especially the end.)
Bobby and Gus have birthdays that are two weeks apart, and all the same friends and all the same interests, so for the last couple of years, they’ve shared a birthday party. It’s following close on the heels of Frankie’s moustache birthday party, but the new baby is due on the 27th, so I figured we’d better get this party in sooner rather than later.
Last year they had a hobbit party. It was adorable. This year, they wanted . . . a zombie party. So that’s what they got.
|LOOK OUT, ZOMBIE CAKE!|
My oldest, Jack (11), likes planning and throwing parties as much as I do, and, let’s face it, I’m awfully pregnant, so he and I split up the duties for this party. I did the cake and the food, he did the decorating and the games. (Have I mentioned how awesome it is to have big kids?)
So . . . here’s how it went down.
|Yes, we let him spray paint.|
|Guests were encouraged to come dressed as a zombie or a survivor. And they did. It was pretty awesome. Jack had a table set up by the front door to pass out treats and weapons appropriate to each side.|
|Dirt, worms, head, a hand for each boy. Definitely zombie, but not too scary. It was red velvet inside (obviously).|
|Jack made the pinata from papier mache, because it’s hard to find a brain pinata. It lasted through the entire line of twenty kids and the oldest kid in line finally brought it down!|
|It’s not every day you throw a zombie apocalype birthday party while nine months pregnant.|
