The rest of the party pics

The poll results are currently leaning towards posting party stuff here, so I will go ahead and post a few pics from last Saturday. I usually post party photos on my family blog, but I'd rather share them where more people can see what I've been up to. Hope you enjoy as much as I do!

I go a little crazy at birthday time...see for yourself:

The Munchies:
Veggies and dip

PB & J samiches for the kids

Make your own sub sandwich for the "big" kids!

A truck-load of salty chips.

The Loot:
Each kid got a bunch of car/truck related things packaged up in the car shaped boxes I found at Oriental Trading. The fire fighter's badge and tattoo are from our local fire station (free!), the gummy cars, stencil, train whistle, tire flashlight key chain and mini truck are all from Oriental Trading.

These suckers are also from Oriental Trading...How cute are they?

I made a drivers license for each kid. They were a huge hit! Don't turn me in for making fake IDs!

When it was time to eat, everyone found where they were sitting at the table by locating their very own set of keys found from this website.

Party Fun
As the guest were arriving, my husband gave the kids rides on our riding mower.
Then we gathered all the kids around my brother-in-law's BIG truck for a great photo op.

The party table. I bought the plates and coordinating napkins when I saw them on clearance a couple years ago for $1 per package. I found those cute traffic signs at the Learning Palace.

Party entrance.

For games we played Red Light, Green Light and Duck Duck Goose. Then I got out the parachute and the kids enjoyed playing parachute games.

Thanks for looking!

Oh my goodness! You are awesome with party stuff! Wow! I stink at it and have never been interested. My poor kids. They turn 13 in 2 weeks and I have planned nothing! You want to stop by? :) I am sure it was a big hit especially the driver's licenses!

OMG! you really had a wonderful party! Can you come and plan mine? I thought I did great parties, but you really did an awesome job. Love all the photos you got, and the one with all the kids in the big truck is just terrific! Great idea with the driver licenses and the love the keys place settings.

OMG awesome party you teach classes? LOL

But really how'd you do the licenses? My kids are always playing at that kinda thing I know they'd love to have driver's licenses.
