Conner really played up his new mohawk - one of the sleeves from my cut-up tshirt fit on his head perfectly, we found a clip-on pirate earring in the toybox (thank you, Bubba and Uncle Chris!), and he even let us put a little "punk rocker" makeup (thank you, Aunt Jodi!) on his face.Add a guitar, and we've got a little Billy Idol-type star in the making! :)Micah heard that it was a costume party, and his mind was immediately made up - he was wearing his spiderman costume, and not nothin' or nobody was gonna change his mind!
Joey was more than happy in a tshirt, shorts, and his rubber boots...which was great with me because I was pretty much out of energy to dress anyone else up!
At the party, there was lots of karaoke. Well...kind of, anyway. The adults sang a couple of songs before the kids took over - first singing some 80's songs and then completely overthrowing the party with ABC and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star songs. Conner was pretty funny - just couldn't stop looking at his cool punk-rocker-self in the mirror while he was singing.
While I cut 15 feet of red fruit by the foot into 1" circles (the pepperonis), Micah and Joey "helped" with their own scissors...
Light brown icing crust, red icing sauce (looooooooooots of Wilton red paste to get it red and not pink!), raisinets and crumbled Little Debbie's brownies for sausage, grated white chocolate for cheese, fruit by the foot cut into circles for the pepperonis, and a light dusting of cocoa powder to make the "crust" look a litle more "cooked."
So even though the party really wasn't exactly what we had hoped, we had a lot of fun both there and while getting ready for it. Thanks to all of our fun friends for all of your hard work!
