Bugalicious Birthday

We have been back from vacation for over a week, but I am just now getting back to some kind of routine.  I have pictures to share from our trip, but I wanted to share some highlights from Landon's 4th Birthday Party first.

My husband wanted to make Landon's pinata this year.  It was quite a task, but it turned out great.
First he taped together balloons to create the general shape for the caterpillar.  Then using an Elmer's glue and water mixture he covered the balloon shape with newspaper.  This process was repeated a few times.

Then a layer of tissue paper and crepe paper was added.  This part was quite time consuming.

Finally a face, antennae, hair, and candy were added.
He is quite cute I think.  

A bug party wouldn't be complete without dirt pudding, cupcakes with gummy worms, and lots of fun.  Here are a few highlights from the rest of the party.

I think Landon and his friends had a great time.  Landon is already planning his next birthday.  This might be helpful in giving Daddy a head start on the pinata...
