Happy 5th Birthday James!

Every kids' dream is to have a birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese, right? Well... 
James' wish came true as over 20 of his friends and family came to celebrate for his 5th birthday. The Higgins', Powell's, church family, and friends made it really special for the birthday boy!  We started off with games and fun.

Cousins and Grandma Higgins
James' precious friend, London
Then it was time for pizza and cake. This year, once again, James wanted a batman cake but this one couldn't hold a candle to the one my girlfriend, Melissa, made for him last year. But it still tasted good and hit the spot. Make a wish!!!
Then it was time for the one and only...CHUCK E CHEESE to come out to sing and dance with the kids!  Every kids' dream, right?!  Well...
"James! Chuck E. Cheese is here! James, where are you?"
Uh, under the table...hiding! Lol! James wasn't sure about the 7 foot furry rat and decided to take the cautious route. After a few minutes of coaxing, he decided it would be alright to come out and gave Chuck a great big hug.
Next, James had the opportunity to get inside the ticket booth. The object of this game was to grab as many tickets as possible in 1 minute. You can stuff them inside your pockets, shirt, hands, wherever!  Then you can trade your tickets in at the toy store for prizes. Every kids' dream, right?!  Well...
Once the air began and the tickets started to fly, James was NOT impressed. He just stood there in tears...too scared to move. When he got out the employees felt so bad for him that they gave him the prize golden ticket worth 1,000 tickets!!!  Needless to say, that put a smile back on this birthday boy's face.
Then it was back to fun, family, and friends. Every kids' dream!!!
