Also known as Brennan's birthday treats display.
(Brennan named the first one when he saw all the cupcakes and sugary treats.)
I had no idea how many kids were coming, so I decided to just do cupcakes. (Invited his entire class, knowing most would not show, then only 2 from school and all 4 that we invited from church came)
Also, our plans were to go to the tennis courts at Brennan's school to play games and party. The hard rain last night changed those plans to my house, so I really didn't need an easy to handle/transport treat, but oh, well...the kids seemed to like the cupcake toppers (esp. since most of them were seven and thought I'd put the #7 on them just for them).
After the fun and games (more on that later), we pigged out. Cupcakes, pretzel rods w/ almond bark, and cupcake cups with m&m's were on our menu. To drink? 3 choices of brightly colored kool-aid...remember, I didn't know if a bunch of kids who didn't RSVP were going to show up, so I needed a cheap option. Once again, if I'd known it was a party of 7, I would have done rectangle juice boxes and made them look like legos. Oh, well. Those kids went home HIGH on sugar. He, he, he.
So, new rule. NO PAPER AND CANDLES IN THE SAME CAKE.
