My blue eyed boy turned 9 years old September 1st. To celebrate, he wanted to have a small family gathering. His only request was that I incorporated Snoopy.
I made Charlie Brown Oreo pops for our guests. Since Tyson is completely wheat free, we purchased gluten free oreos.
I created a fun food table. I found free cupcake toppers online, made a simple cake, painted a Snoopy poster board and added other little cute touches.
Charlie Brown himself made a special appearance at the party! (Tyson's little brother, Keean.) This "costume" was so simple and inexpensive to make. All I needed was one bald baby, a yellow onesie, eyeliner, a black marker and shorts. - I didn't have a yellow onesie, so I dyed one. I then drew a zigzag with a black marker around the onesie, gave my little bubba eyebrows, added the famous Charlie Brown bang and then threw shorts on him. Voila!
For a little extra fun, Tyson filled out an "All About Me" questionnaire. Each guest had to write down what they thought Tyson would answer. The person with the most correct answers won a prize.
One of my favorite parts of the day was seeing how excited Tyson was to help a local charity. In lieu of gifts, he asked each guest to bring two Toonies. (A Canadian two-dollar coin) One was for himself to purchase a special birthday book. The other Toonie, was to be donated to a charity of his choice. Tyson chose to donate to CARMA. He was able to proudly raise $60. We are so thankful and proud of our family for helping us raise money.
And, last but not least! Tyson requested breakfast for supper! I tried to make it a little extra special for him. He thought his meal was hilarious!
