Birthday on a Budget: Super-Hero Party

It is time for the final post in my series on birthday parties - how to have super fun and festive parties on a budget. All of the parties I have shared {including this one!} in this series are birthday parties that I have planned for my children and the entire party cost is under $100 {including food}>

I love planning parties, but also need to keep my spending to a minimum. With more children and more parties to plan, I now spend even less. The final party I am sharing is my son Beckett's 4th Birthday Party - a Super-Hero Party! We just celebrated this past Saturday :) 

I picked up the table cloth, plates, goodie bags & napkins in Walmart's Clearance aisle all for $1.00 each.

I got the stickers at Target - they were $1.00 each, and then an additional 30% off (summer sale)

The Justice League bags were also a part of the Target sale!

The "Super" cake that my mom made :) Props to my husband for the buildings (made out of foam)

Tie Dye cupcakes - I got that cupcake toppers at Target in the summer sale as well!

I picked up the yellow fabric at Walmart on clearance ($2/yard) and I made the masks out of foam sheets I got at Walmart for 33 cents each!

My Super-Hero 

How can he be 4 already?

With his sisters - I made their dresses, which was a bit of an indulgence - but I also used the extra fabric on the food table!

Super Evelyn in her cape and mask!

I have to share some of the present pictures - his faces are just too awesome!

And the highlight of the night - the Slip N Slide!

Daddy even got in on the action!

Thanks for stopping by! Have you had any "super" parties?

The Beatitudes of Motherhood {FREE PRINTABLE}

Blessed is the mom who is so overwhelmed and ready to pull her hair out, that she surrenders her life to God. She knows that she cannot rely upon her own strength.  The Holy Spirit will fill her, she will decrease - allowing God to increase which will bring Glory to His Kingdom.
Blessed is the mom who is grieving for her loved one. The mom who has lost a sweet baby in her womb. The mom who mourns for a child she once held in her arms. The mom who is a widow. The mom who is an orphan. The mom who has said goodbye to a dear friend.  This time of grieving will allow the Great Comforter to wrap her up in His arms and give her rest.  
Blessed is the mom who is comfortable in her own skin, confident in her choices and satisfied with her life. She does not compare herself to the supermodel mom or cast judgement on different parenting styles. She does not boast about herself or her children, she does not seek fortune or fame.  For she is a daughter of the most high King, her worth and inheritance …

"Martyr"hood (A Lesson In Being A Selfless Mom)

"Do I seriously have to do this again?" I thought as I rolled out of bed, stumbling to the door. It was the fifth round of clean-up that night. I stripped the bed (after a momentary "could I just throw a towel on it?"), cleaned up my scared, shaking daughter, remade the bed, and tucked her back in, kissing her and reminding her that the bowl was on the floor if she needed it (in hopes that I could avoid some clean up). I added the dirty sheets to the growing basket on the stairs, and crawled back into bed with a 13 month old who suddenly needed to nurse. Sleep must have overcome me at some point because I startled awake to do it all over again an hour later. 
Have I succeeded in making you feel sorry for me? Have I convinced you of my martyrdom? I am ashamed to say that those were not even the worst thoughts running through my head, and I could honestly recount that story much more pathetically.

It happened the next day. My children were feeling a *little* better,…

God Changed My Mind About Modesty

I was recently sitting in a mall food court with my fifteen month old daughter, as my husband waited in line for the carousel with our older two. As the ride came to a stop, there was a group of young girls riding on horses directly in front of me. I noticed that the one little girl (who was maybe 8 or 9) was wearing very short shorts - as in you could not even tell she was wearing anything when she was sitting on the horse. To make matters worse, when she raised herself up off the horse, her entire bottom was exposed! I cringed and felt sick to my stomach as I peered around at the hundreds of people in the busy mall food court who may have just witnessed it as well. The little girl adjusted her shorts and went on her way, but I couldn't shake the sick feeling I had - the thought that someone in the mall could have enjoyed seeing that little girl like that...

I know that "wardrobe malfunctions" may happen sometimes. Even when dressed modestly, the wind can blow up a ski…
