Minion Theme on EJ's 8th Birthday

 My baby turned 8 years old on the 15th of this month.  We had a small get together with close friends and family.  When my kids started going to school, I stopped  doing birthday parties. We usually go somewhere to celebrate their birthdays rather than having a party.  This year however,  Mr. Burrito wanted to have  party at home,  That's what  kept me busy last week, cleaning, organizing and cooking.
We only invited our  closest friends in the neighborhood and the Burritos  Aunt.
 Up and below photos with Lolo Don and LOla Ruth Fancher.
 With Ate Sarah, one of the Howells' ladies.
 We played   scrabble and  monopoly and we all had so much fun!
 We had an ice cream cake  that we bought at Dairy Queen.
 Here's the birthday boy enjoying his  presents.
 Daddy to the rescue with the not so kid-friendly packages hehehe.
 We all agreed to idea of doing this kind of gathering more often because it's fun and brings us all closer.
 The Howells, having a serious time  doing monopoly with the Burritos.
 It's fun watching them.  I played scrabble with Lizzy and Nanay Ruth, we had a blast!
I decorated  the house   on Wednesday after I cleaned then I  prepared the food early as well.  Yesterday, I only have to do three things  rather than doing it all together, it was  stress free.
  Great to have neighbors that really cares.   Hope we could  do this again soon.  Hopefully!

Special thanks to Wholesale Party Supplies for the birthday in a box sent to me for review.
