Pizza Cookies for Jack's Surprise Party!

A few weeks before Jack's 6th birthday, 

(You can find it HERE)

It stopped Jack in his tracks as he rushed by the computer.

"Whoa Mom!  Those are the coolest cookies ever!!!!
Are you going to make those?!"

Right at that moment a little light bulb turned on over my head.

Surprise party.....Jack....PIZZA COOKIES!!!!!

"Yeah Jack, someone just asked for pizza cookie favors.
I'll make them in a few weeks."


I love surprises.

Why a surprise party?

Jack has a summer birthday, late August.  
So, while it is easier to track down his friends through email and evites,
 you never know who is out of town and able to come.

I figured this way, 
if it turned out that not a single one of his friends could come....
no broken heart. don't quite believe that?

Okay, fine.  
Maybe that was only 50 percent of the reason.

I knew, without a doubt, if I had to hear thirty days of,

"Is it my party yet?"
"Is my party today?"
"Will Ryan be there?"
"Will Paige be there?"
"How many tokens do we get?"
"Will there be pizza?"
"Are Grandma and Grandpa coming?"
"Can I have soda?"

"Can I invite Riley?"
(the 15 year old neighbor)
"Can I invite Adena?"
(she cuts Jack's hair)
"Can I invite the mailman?"

I might strangle the giant mouse when we finally showed up at Chuck E. Cheese.

It's not cool to attack the giant mouse.
It's just not.

I told him he needed to come with me to deliver the cookies.
I had to show him the balloon with his name on it 
before he actually believed the party was for him.

He was shocked.
Way beyond surprised.

We took pictures with all his friends when they started arriving.
He was more and more excited as each one came through the door.

They all talked strategy before he headed into the magic ticket booth.

At the end of the party, he stood in front of the prize counter 
with his little tickets and kept repeating....

"I just can't believe I'm doing this...
this is awesome."

Score one for the Mommy.

Happy Birthday Jack Jack.

You make our hearts smile, 




Thanks for stopping by,
