A LEGO Movie Birthday Party

LEGO Movie Good Cop Jars

My little guy was born on Christmas Day and as you may guess it is rough to compete for attention during such a big holiday. For the first couple years we did Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve, presents in the morning and switched to birthday mode after his nap. Last year we tried a party […]
