Today is Tucker’s 8th birhday! Last year he was upset because his birthday fell less than two weeks before we headed to Houston, TX to have Apollo evaluated by a surgeon…This meant I had no time to plan the big birthday bashes he is used to. And you know, that’s okay…Sometimes life doesn’t go exactly as planned.
We did make sure this year that Tucker had his fabulous party. He wanted a Despicable Me themed party and I was happy to oblige. Thankfully Pinterest in awash with party ideas and seriously, who wouldn’t want to make these cute little minion cupcakes?
Betty Crocker cake mix and icing and Twinkies make perfect minion bodies… I was thrilled to find thse Wilton Eyeballs! They made minion making a breeze.Despicable Me Party Minion Cupcakes
We filled the Box of Shame with presents…
And to my kids, “party” is synonymous with “costume”…so they put their creativity to the test and came up with these:
Tucker had a few friends from school as well as some homeschool friends. He was thrilled with everything (and everyone) and once our guests left we enjoyed the movie as a family.
Happy 8th birthday, Tucker!
