Winter Olympics ~ Birthday Style

You've seen the gold medals... you've seen the torch... Now here are the details of the whole Olympic birthday party--the whole shebang!!

The birthday dinner began with an international cuisine.  We feasted on American hot dogs (my son's favorite of the moment!), French fries, Italian pesto pasta salad, Chinese green salad, Mexican queso dip, and German {Root} Beer.  (My husband thought he was so clever for thinking up that last one!)

Before the events began, each athlete had to check in.  Everyone was assigned a country to represent.  They each wore a sticker with the flag of their country.  (I chose the top-medaling nations of the Winter Olympics).  Of course my little guy represented the U.S.A. with the help of his Daddy.
Here is a run-down of all of the events in our Olympics:

We kept track of each nation's gold, silver, and bronze medals.  I was the referee of the night (that's why I am wearing black and white.)  With his Daddy's help, the U.S.A ended up with the most medals at the end of the night!

Although we honored the top winners of the night at our Medals Ceremony, the birthday boy presented a gold medal to everyone at the party as he unwrapped his presents.


We ate yummy Olympic birthday cupcakes.  I used M&M's to create the Olympic rings.  I just had to use a brown M&M for the black ring.  Not too shabby. My sister had the fabulous idea to strip down the birthday boy to his diaper and let him feast on his own cake in a small swimming pool.  My little sweetheart was a mess, but it was so worth it!


The whole party was so much fun!!  Watching my family participate in the suitcase relay was the highlight of my entire weekend.  The best part of course was watching the birthday boy!




By the way... I am so excited that the U.S.A. just took the lead in Olympic medals again with our latest gold medalists last night!  GO U.S.A.!
