Our Easiest and Most Special Birthday Party Ever | Live Colorful

A week ago my mom came to visit from Mexico. Having her here has been a super special way to celebrate Jaxon’s birthday!

Last time she was here was when Jaxon was born, four years ago. Can you imagine how special it was for us to have her with us on his birthday?

We celebrated Jaxon’s birthday in one of his favorite spots, our local Chuck E. Cheese’s. The best part was probably being able to make a reservation like a month or two before, and forget about it until two days before the party.

My mom really appreciated that chuck e. cheese let us add a touch of personalization to our party with our own DIY goodie bags, themed balloons, party hats, themed cake and other decorations that Jaxon asked her to bring from Mexico and that featured his favorite book characters.

We got a boxes of chalk as party favors for each of our guests and Jaxon really wanted to have an ice cream cake, but we easily could have ordered everything straight from Chuck E. Cheese’s, from goody bags and balloons to cakes since they have all of that in store too. Anyway, it was nice to know that we could easily decide from all the options or packages that they offered that fit our budget.

The day of the party we got to Chuck E. Cheese’s twenty minutes before our event. We played some games with Jaxon and then got our special tables ten minutes before the event started. Our dedicated host handled everything from ordering the food for us, added extra kids to our event, bringing our food, encouraging everyone to sing the happy birthday, lighting the birthday cake candles, slicing the cake for each guest, to clean-up and even storing our leftover cake in the freezer until we left.

I totally recommend hosting your next kid’s birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese’s. It’s so simple and the kids love it! If you have older kids you should consider getting the Mega Super Star Birthday Package, which includes All You Can Play games for each child in your party at all corporate Chuck E. Cheese’s locations. With an All You Can Play, your party guests will enjoy free rein of Chuck E. Cheese’s to play all games they want in the timeframe you choose. A great value and convenient (when your party time is up, you’re done – it’s that easy)!

All you have to do is reserve your birthday party date, pick out one of Chuck E. Cheese’s fun birthday party packages, invite your guests and show up!

Kids Books We Love: My Little Donkey / Mi Burrito

Kids Books We Love: My Little Donkey / Mi Burrito

A year ago we got a copy of the book My Little Donkey / Mi Burrito and it suddenly became son’s favorite book for the holidays season. What I really enjoy about this book is that when I’m reading it and singing it to my son, it brings back memories of my childhood and all the Christmas carols that I used to sing with my cousins back in Mexico.

What’s this book about?

This holiday book is based on one of the most popular Christmas carols in Spanish: “Mi Burrito Sabanero“ (The Little Donkey from the Savannah).

The book opens like an accordion, and you can expand the whole book in a line. The book also has two sides, so you can explore every page in Spanish in one side and English in the other side.  It’s a beautiful, great quality book, to add to your children’s book collection! The pages are also full of interactive lift-the-flap details that make the adventure of reading it more stimulating.

Halloween is getting closer and closer and I wanted to share with you these adorable mini party favor boxes created by Una Fiesta Bonita that you can download, print, assemble and fill with your favorite candy this Halloween. ‘

They are extra special since my son decided that he wanted to dress up like Frankie this year! We were so lucky to find part of the costume, the t-shirt and a Frankenstein head, in a thrift store, and then I sew some pants to complete the costume. Now we are planning on printing two of these cute mini boxes, one for him and one for mommy, to make out Trick-Or-Treating even more fun!
