The boys wrote, colored and delivered invitations to all of Raccoons friends while I cleaned up breakfast. We had some errands to do, and the boys picked out small presents for Raccoon (glow in the dark bracelets, and Halloween stamps), and then the boys helped me mix the cake, and pour it in the pan. While it was cooking we wrapped his presents, and made paper lanterns:
Take a piece of paper
Fold it in half
Cut in strips, leaving room at the top
Add some glue to the edge
Cut a small strip for the handle, add some glue
And add it to the top of the lantern
String some across the room if you want to get fancy
And you have yourself a party.
We also played musical chairs to the tune of "Play that Funky Music White Boy." I thought it was so appropriate as my little boys shook their booties around the living room.
A party just wouldn't be a party without some funky music.
