Super Busy Super Time with Super Kids and a rodeo

I am trying to play catchup with the ET and should have something to show you before I have the kids home for Spring Break, but in the meantime, I thought I would share with you what was taking up all my time to begin with!  My littlest turned 3 ad I all out there party mom, so there was extensive work. Check it out!

The kids got to make their own paper masks and power cuffs (toilet paper tubes cut in half and sliced open)
 Charlie loves all thing super heroes.  These streamers are still up in our dining room!
 My sister got him an Air Crawler balloon.  Look the up. Be jealous and wish that YOU were 3.  Realize that you are a grown ass adult and go get a balloon if you want one.  Go get it!

 There were super heroes all of the place!
 Yes.  I made them a telephone booth.  The trunk is full of super hero dress up stuff.  They both now lives in their superhero themed playroom.
 Did you know that you can buy mylar stickers to personalize a mylar balloon?!

I painted a cityscape to go behind the presents... complete with Super Charlie symbol.  This is in the playroom, too, now.

 And I made this game.  :)  We love it.
 Decorations everywhere!  I even made a super hero birthday banner, but there are apparently no pictures of that.  :/  <---------disappointed face.="" nbsp="" p="">

 And a super wreath!
 The kids each got to take home not only the things they made, but one of these fun cups!  Each had Avengers candy in it, a super sucker (google it) a mask, some crayons and a stack of their own heroes to color in.

 This was the first time I didn't make a cake for him.... even when I have ordered Publix cakes, I make them change a zillion things on them.  This year, I put up my hands and let them do their work.... and this is what I got. I added all the toppers though.  They don't do that.

 My tiny hero with his mask! And some cantaloupe.
 coloring his mask.
 It was a SUPER DAY!!
There weren't a lot of pictures.  My sister was having fun participating.  HA! That was a lot of prep!  Then it was followed by a weekend of work, play and family celebration.

The following weekend, we took him out for his actual birthday, which the rest of you call St Patrick's Day.  We went to a children's art festival here in Gainesville, called "Where the Sidewalk Ends."  It was a ton of fun. Especially since my kiddos love arts and crafts.  Wonder where they got that from?

 They were making bookmarks and then down here they are making Brazilian tambourines.   Super fun.  And who knew there was a "u" in tamboUrine?

 Charlie showing his off after he had me write on it.
 Filling his planter with dirt (after he had me draw the Avengers on it)
 Just planted a sunflower seed!
 Street art!

 Even mommy can play at the park.  :D
 Followed by some laser tag.  They had a blast.  Look at them scoping out enemy troops!

 A quick stop at the painting station.  :)

 And then onto the bounce house place after lunch!

 velcro wall!  Everyone should have one in their house.

 Playing spiderman!!

I can't seem to find the rodeo pictures... but if you have facebook, or even if you don't, you can check all that out and more on my facebook fan page.  You can find that HERE.
 And now, I have to start prep for an Angry Bird party for the other one.  :)


  1. Soooo Fun! It looks like Super Charlie had a super time, and your sister too! One question though, what's with the Christmas gackground on your blog? It's supposed to be spring!

    1. OMG. Totally forgot. HA! I will fix it. And now you have to come back and see the rest. I hit publish before I was done!

  2. Awesome party ;) your little guy must have been sooo stoked!

    Great job mom!

    I have ever seen a balloon like that before very cool! ;)

  3. Yeah, supposed to be spring...send some of that FL warmth up north!!! :D

    Looks like an awesome time all around! You're one creative mom, and I love it!

  4. Wow, you've had a busy fun time. Awesome birthday decorations. A lot of hard work but you probably had a lot of creative fun doing them too.

  5. Wow, what an awesome party!

    You really went all out on the Superhero theme.
    I love that wreath!

  6. OMG you are SUCH a good momma!!!! What fun. :)

  7. Awesome party! You're like a big kid, Lyssa! Your little Charlie is one adorable little boy! Belated Happy Birthday to him. I can see he had a wonderful time!

  8. Thanks, everyone! We did have a lot of fun and even thought it was a lot of work, it's always worth it. :)

  9. menuda fiesta que montaste para el peque , veo que os lo pasasteis genial , muchas felicidades a toda la familia



  10. Lyssa, I will go and like you on facebook because I am a fan of yours, dear girl! I must say though that my facebook wall has nothing of much interest to offer and I'm sure people must be quite disappointed when they become friends. The problem is that I'm just not into pic taking. I'm always in a muddle with my camera and it stresses me. I only joined facebook to look at my daughter's photos and my three granddaughter's photos. I also have a son but he's not on facebook.


If the spam gets bad, I will turn the captcha back on! I hope I don't have to!
