partying "last airbender" style...

the entire four years we have been married, i have never really done anything spectacular for jordan's birthday. we usually just end up going out to dinner and having some sort of family party on the nearest sunday to the date. we always have a good time, but this year i wanted to really go all out. so, with the help of my sister and our dear friend sally (the arteest), the "avatar: the last airbender" surprise party was set in motion...



surprise!







jordan thought we were dropping the kids off at my sister's so that we could go out to dinner... little did he know that the party of all parties was waiting for his arrival...




we had element bending games, a yummy spread of chinese food (thanks costco), and awesome paper lanterns and cartoon paintings to decorate...






the kids and adults enjoyed themselves-- but best of all, my big adult kid was completely surprised and thought it was the best party ever:)







p.s. if you are confused as to why we all have blue arrows on our heads, i recommend you watch the series. after a 5 episode commitment, you will realize that it is a show very worthy of your time:)
