Minecraft Party

21 Jul

So, we are a little nerdy. You just have to admit that when your 7-yr-old requests a Minecraft party. And the truth comes out even more when Cristian and I stay up until 2:00 am taking a trip to Walmart for green poster board to build a “creeper” and making square-shaped food in every possible form we can think of.
However, it was fun!!

Merayla Birthday 2014 Invitation

For those that don’t know Minecraft, think of it as Legos in a computer game, where you have to mine each kind of metal and then trade villagers for other kinds of materials to build things. It takes an incredibly long time and I don’t have the patience, but Cristian and Merayla love it. She invited all of her friends from her 1st grade class that knew the game, and they wore the Steve head (the good guy in the game), chopped and shot at the creeper (bad guy), built mini Minecraft people and searched for them around the house, and generally had a good time. I even tried to make a cake that looks like the cake (yes, there is a cake in Minecraft) except the Starbursts started melting! Well, I hope you enjoy the pictures and get some good ideas if you ever need to throw a Minecraft Birthday Party…
