My kids only get "friend" parties every other year. Which means that for two full years they get to dream up one thousand different obscure ideas. Jakson was convinced that a Wii party would be totally awesome. Drawbacks to this idea: our TV is tiny and we only have two Wii remotes and it would end up a crowded, slightly boring disaster (watching people play video games is one notch more boring than actually playing them). I knew I was going to have to come up with the most excellent idea ever to deter him from his video game dreams.
Enter Nerf party. The only theme that trumped the Wii.
Before the party, we took the obligatory cake pictures. As we all know, I am not a cake decorator and you will never find this cake on Pinterest....but he loved it and that's all that really matters. I was able to cover up most of my mistakes with M&Ms. Just like white out. Except tastier (though I have not, in fact, eaten white out). In case you can't tell, it's supposed to be a target with a Nerf bullet in the middle.
