Mario Party

I'm four now. That's right. You know what that means.

I'm taller.

I'm almost as tall as Mommy. Or so I keep telling her. When you turn four you get a Mario Paw-ty. And it's awesome.

I picked out this cake. Mommy made it.

And, like any big event, there's a pregame show. For me, that meant lots of pictures in front of the fireplace. At least I was in good company. Mommy had to draw Bowser (you'll see him later) but I told her that wasn't enough. We needed Mario, Toad, Yoshi, Luigi, King Boo, and the Princess (per Hannah's request). When you're the birthday boy it's pretty awesome because, well, you get what you want.

I'm more of a Luigi fan at heart but having a "Luigi Party" didn't sound quite right. Sorry Luigi.

Then, the real party began because, my friends came.

It was time for us to warp into Mario world.
All those eggs Mommy blew out and stuffed with confetti piece by piece over the past few weeks were hidden for us to find, you know, to throw at Bowser in order to free the princess.

And, like any Mario game, we had to punch bricks to get coins and fireballs. A note to Mommy here, we may need to perfect this part next time. 

This next part was not for the faint of heart. King Boo's ghosts were everywhere. Our mission: kill them. I gave a few a mean pop.

And, ping, a coin appeared. Can you see it?

After playing Shy Guy says on our way to Bowser's castle (those pictures were boring), we finally arrived. So, with my eggs in hand I began the demolition of Bowser.

Check out my arm. I think I'm ready to take my skills to the basketball court.

Na-fan (as I like to call him) shattered his egg. Mommy thought we must show this picture so that we can better enjoy the confetti she painstakingly placed piece by piece into these eggs that were destroyed in a matter of minutes. Sorry, she made me write that.

We did it. We defeated Bowser. And we rescued the Princess (not pictured but she was there).

After the party we delved into the cake. And of course I opened all my awesome presents.

And, like all good things, it had to come to an end. But a tasty end. My friends went home with these tasty chocolate Wii remotes along with a character from Mario.

All in all, I had a blast. And I'm already thinking ahead to next year's party.

It's a toss up between Angry Birds and Spider Man.

Oh my goodness! That was an insanely creative party! I am planning Reagan's first birthday and realizing what it takes to make the magic happen. You are an awesome mom my friend!
