Happy Christmas Birthday Party Losh!

Happy Christmas Birthday Party Losh!!

Turning 10 is a pretty big deal, right? This little guy just hit that milestone:

Christmas Birthday Party for Losh 7

To celebrate, Losh asked for another Christmas Birthday Party. (He had one when he turned 8 too) We chose a slightly easier food route this time and I am glad we did. We woke up to the power being out and it was out for a few hours. I can’t imagine the stress I would have felt trying to prepare Christmas Dinner with no power!

Losh chose the menu: grilled chicken, green beans, baked beans, mashed potatoes, and banana pudding

This handsome guy manned the grill:

The cake was provided by a dear friend. Kaia said it was too pretty to eat. Everybody loved the chicken and the cake.

A little backstory… Losh likes to talk on the phone to his grandpa. His grandpa pretends to be Santa Claus, Santa’s helper, Mickey Mouse, Goofy, etc.. One of Losh’s favorite people to talk to is Little Timmy Elf. This elf happens to be Santa’s number one helper. Losh is convinced that he is really talking to an Elf on the phone, and he even writes him letters. Since the ladies at the post office respond to these letters personally, he actually believes this elf is real. We have tried telling him that Santa Claus and this elf really do not exist, but he doesn’t believe us. He is very smart, but he is also very childlike in his beliefs.

His grandpa just so happened to tell Losh that Little Timmy Elf shared the same birthday as him. Losh insisted on inviting this elf to his birthday party and I kinda freaked out wondering how I was going to get an elf to the party…. I put out a couple calls on Facebook and my dear friend who made the cake just so happened to have a friend with an Elf costume. Losh was elated! He quickly became BFFs with Little Timmy Elf.

He played with the elf, opened presents with the elf, ate with the elf, and did everything he could with the elf, after all Little Timmy Elf had to get back to Santa’s workshop. At the end of the party, we tried telling him that the Elf wasn’t really real, but again, he wouldn’t believe it.

For his Christmas birthday party, he didn’t ask for much. He asked for a paper shredder (for his make believe doctor office), a trampoline, and a bow and arrow. He got everything he asked for… and then some:

Seeing him ride around on the 4 wheeler and “jump” on the trampoline is a blast. I think I get more excited to celebrate with them than they do. And I gotta say, I can’t believe I am now mother to TWO ten year olds.

Have you ever invited characters to your children’s birthday?
Losh is actually the only child of mine who has ever had characters. He had Santa, Mickey Mouse, and now the Elf.

    I LOVE IT! I have never heard of this a theme, but I am SOOO into Christmas and I love that he picked this.

      I think character invites make it that much more special! Wish I would have thought of it when my girls were little!

  2. Pam

    Oh gosh, how precious that your friend had a friend with an elf costume. That’s so sweet that he came.

    We had Elmo once at a party. This is so cool. I love the Christmas Birthday Party theme and it’s awesome that Little Timmy Elf was able to make it!

      I think it is more acceptable to do that when your birthday is near Christmas. His birthday is in Spring so it cracks me up he wants a Christmas theme, but it works!

    Aww! What a fun birthday! Christmas theme is the best theme I never thought of that before. Sounds fabulous. Looks like he had a great time too! Happy Birthday to him!!

    That’s such a fun birthday idea. My daughter was born a week before Christmas, so she tends to go for the beach themed parties lol. Congrats on hitting the double digits!

    What a fun idea for a Birthday party, I love it! It looks like he had a great time!

    I think it’s awesome, I want a Christmas birthday party! Good choice Losh! I agree, that cake looks delish! I’ve never had an entertainer at a party. Is it hard to book? Do they hang out afterwards? Is it awkward? Do tell? I have four children and I’m sure this will come up at some point. I’d love more insight into your experiences. :-)

      We borrowed a Santa suit and my son’s grandpa wore it for the first one.. He wished that there was hired help because he felt he couldn’t be a part of the party. He only made a brief appearance. Santa is a busy guy and had to rush back to the North Pole.. The next one, we rented a costume and my sister played Mickey Mouse.. Mickey Mouse stayed for a while and then left. The lady that usually wears the costumes had to do something else that day. My sister had no problems being Mickey. The Elf stayed the whole party and was not family. I think it was slightly awkward for him because it isn’t his regular job. Finding people with the costumes was the hardest part.

    I always wanted to have someone dress up as a character for my childrens birthday. They are teenagers now. They still get the choice of having a party of going somewhere with a friend, like Water Slide city or something like that.

    Good for him. He got actually what he wanted for his birthday. I love the idea of a Christmas Theme party. My son would love that too.

    This is so, I cannot even put my words together. I love this. I love how friends and family get together and make a day so special. I absolutely LOVE this idea. I love how helpful your friends are & your community! Happy birthday to Losh! So a special and cute little boy!

    My kids have birthdays that are close to each other and also close to Halloween. One year i had a costume party and invited a magician to the party. It was a huge hit.

  12. mykidsguide

    That sounds like a really cute theme. I love Christmas and I would have said yes instantly if one of my kids requested a Christmas themed party.

  13. Pauline C.

    I love this theme. It seems so unique and I really love that the boy is really happy in his pictures.

  14. becka

    I love everything about this post. The ladies at the PO answering his letters, the facebook friend’s elf friend, it’s all so sweet. You have a wonderful little boy with some great friends!

  15. Uplifting Families

    This looks like so much fun. I love that you even found an elf to come. That would have been interesting for sure to serve Christmas dinner without power. I love this idea. :)

  16. Jacqueline

    That’s awesome! I’ve heard of Christmas in July parties, so I can dig the holiday/bday theme :) Little Timmy seems like the best elf ever!!! That cake is fab!

  17. CourtneyLynne

    Omg how cute is this?!?! I’m Christmas obsessed so a Christmas themed party is totally awesome!

    So cool! I love the idea of a Christmas themed birthday party. This is one of those ideas that got me excited because it would work with kids or adults.

    Happy Birthday to Losh. This is so adorable having a Christmas birthday party and I totally love the idea. I loved the cake which looked gorgeous and the Elf too. Thanks so much for sharing. It looks like he got a great gift too.

    The elf story is just too sweet. I am in awe that you were able to have an elf come to visit. Great memories!
