Put on your Ears It's time for Cheers, Dean turned 4!

 Our middle child, Dean insisted on a Birthday Party this year. Only a Mickey party would do.  Now there are quite a few over the top Mickey Mouse Birthday Party's such as this one.  They do have a lot of great ideas.  Here is my homemade Mickey party! Got to love it!
 Baked up a box of Trader Joe's Chocolate cake, added some butter cream icing I bought off my cake decorator neighbor.  All those years at Mason's Bakery in Whittier and I can write rather well in frosting.  I'm super proud of the little suspended banner.
 The table set for fun!
Yes, that is our fabric Birthday Banner that I made 2 years ago. I love it. It just represents "Birthday" at our house. If you really want one contact me and we can negotiate.
 As the take away. I used large lunch sacks and printed out a cute little tag for each child to collect their pinata candy.  Thanks Tiffany for letting us use your Mikey craft punch, it was used!
  Mickey mouse party hats. Check!  I purchased kids party hats at Target and then cut out 30 - 3 1/2 inch circles.  Folded down one side and hot glued them to the hats.
 Can't forget the pinata.  Homemade yes!  Followed these instructions here, all I had to purchase was the black crepe paper.
 The kids showed up and we handed out coloring pages printed off of the Disney Junior website. It was a good opening activity while they showed up.
We played a round of duck, duck, goose.  As well as Red Rover Red Rover.
Sang Happy Birthday and ate some cake. 
Opened presents. I love the huddle to see what he opened. 
And then we let them swing at the pinata. 
Waiting for their turns. 

It was a wonderful party! Thanks to the kids who showed up, and the wonderful gifts. It made one 4 year old very very happy!
