Birthday Party--Angry Birds Style

We had originally planned to do a Cars theme for Dakin's birthday, but upon observing his undying and passionate devotion to Angry Birds, we knew it was the only way to go.  There isn't a whole lot of Angry Birds themed stuff just yet, so we had to improvise:  behold, Angry Birds cookie pops!

Pig goody bags...

Angry Birds game.  Found this on a website, and it would have gone much more smoothly but for some reason the wind decided it had to blow as hard as it could on October 8th.  Sooooo, we had to modify.  One of the dads held the pigs up on the boxes and let the kids 'knock' them down with the birds.
We had pig cupcakes, but they didn't make it on here because they were horrible looking...haha.  It was a good party, and Dakin would have enjoyed it more had that cursed wind not been up to its tricks (he never learned to breathe in wind, and so it scares him.  He spent the first half of the party in tears because I was too dumb to think to put him on a breathing rate.  Once I thought to he chilled out.) 
Dakin got a playable Angry Birds game, a hat, a lovely painting, a handmade set of Angry Birds, a few stuffed Birds, a book, a Moon in My Room and a few cards.  The party was a lot of fun (even for Dakin finally...).  I love doing parties for him, and I love seeing how the kids are all so great with him.  He has grown up with this set of kiddos and so they all treat him like any other kiddo.  We are lucky to have such a great group of kids for Dakin to be around.

If I never have to make any other Angry Birds-themed things ever again it will be too freaking soon.
