Happy Birthday, My Son…..Lego Style…..
Nine years old. How did this happen?? I guess that’s a question all of us mama’s ask ourselves at one point or another…..
“What kind of party do you want this year?” Asks me.
“I think I want a………Lego party.” Says he.
So here I go with my frugal self off to research “how to make some really stellar Lego cupcakes…..”
Here are the first ones I came across……Cute right??
Nourishing Words, Beautiful Food had these, HERE….
Yeah. Only one problem……Umm……I can’t do that.
Wowzer!! These are amazing!!
Found these amazing little guys…HERE
Umm……yeah……another problem……. can’t do that either.
Like, never….in a million years never. :)
Okay, what about these……cupcake toppers!! I can do that!!
See the Etsy Posting HERE…
Oh. They cost money.
Hey, wait a second! Surely I can make some semblance of a Lego cupcake topper myself with my handy-dandy photo software!!
Woo Hoo! Good enough for me!!
I printed off a sheet, cut them out, slapped a toothpick on the back of them with some tape, and whalla!!!
Lego cupcake toppers.
Only cost me the ink from my printer.
(Well, and a piece of cardstock and some toothpicks. But that doesn’t count, right?) :)
When my son walked up and saw me cutting these out…..his eyes got really big.
Then he said, “Mom, what does ‘Have a Lego Birthday’ mean?”
“I don’t know,” I said. I just made it up.
About 30 seconds later he said, “Mom?”
“I love you.”
“I love you too, bud.”
And oh, how I do.
So here’s what the sheet looked like that I printed out. Feel free to right click, and print it off for yourself……no charge, my sister!!
Be careful, this sheet says, “Happy Birthday, TUCKER!”
And in the unfortunate case that your son’s name isn’t “Tucker”…..
I made up a new sheet just for you. (Without the names on them!) :)
Enjoy, my frugal friend.
(And enjoy that precious little boy/about to turn young man.)
Lord, may they grow to be faithful servants for YOU!!
