Payson’s 5th Birthday Preparations

Payson wanted a Super Mario World birthday. There are NO supplies with that theme in any store here. I decided to just draw everything instead. He was pretty happy about that idea so yay. And I think in total I spent less than $10 on everything. Oh no, wait, I spent $14 on balloons!!! I usually get a couple balloons from the dollar store but they were out of helium so I had to go to Party City at the last minute and holeeeee crap they charge a boatload!! $2 per balloon! And then $4 for the balloon weight. UGH. I only bought it because Payson’s favorite color has been red for the past 3 years and I’m pretty sure next year will be the same so I’ll reuse that balloon weight in the future. Maybe I’m cheap but it was painful paying $14 for balloons. I’m still shaking my head.  photo 003eresized_zps65b3a3d5.jpg

The kids loved watching me draw everything, tape everything, set up everything.  photo 012eresized_zps7a79176e.jpg

How cute is it that Payson ran over and hugged me while I was working? He was soooo excited!! photo 013eresized_zpseca61803.jpg

I drew a Mario but stupidly colored his face with an orange marker. It looked horrible! I decided to redraw him and use a peach crayon for his face. Luckily I like to draw so it wasn’t a big deal.  photo 033eresized_zpsd508a778.jpg
