Kenny’s 8th birthday (with friends)

Kenny and his friend, Arden, had their birthday party together this year.  We went with a backyard movie theme, along with some baseball on the side, in case anyone got a little antsy.

We started off with baseball.

And then we did the cake and presents next since it was still light out.  Arden’s mom made the cutest popcorn cupcakes.  She used marshmallows (cut on the top) to look like the actual popcorn and then sprayed it with yellow food spray.  Then, she stuck a yellow Starburst on top to look like the butter.  They were really tasty too.  To keep with our movie theme, I found these popcorn party favor bags and we stuffed them with popcorn, movie candy and poppers and placed them around the cupcakes.

And then it was time for the movie and popcorn.  Anita rented a projector and speaker and we hung a drop cloth up to show the movie on.  Some of the boys left half-way through the movie and started playing baseball again and others sat and watched the whole thing.  We didn’t care, as long as they were having fun.

Happy (almost) 8th birthday, Kenny – I hope you had fun celebrating with your friends!

(And for the record, Luke had a party with his friends at Pump It Up in the afternoon and then our families came over to celebrate that night.  I still cannot believe my baby is five!)

Happy 4th birthday Mac!

Mac turned four last Saturday (December 3rd). 

I have to share this story while I’m talking about our dogs:

Apparently our dogs have something against the wise men in our Little People Nativity

Luke was playing with the set and when he was done he left two of the wise men standing on their heads.  They were on opposite sides and surrounded by the other figurines.  Camille walked up to the set, looked at it, pushed over the first wise man, looked at the second wise man and then pushed him over too.  Eric and I were cracking up.   

Then last night I found Camille chewing on one of them (which I saved just in the nick of time) and found that Mac had chewed off the top of the head of the other one.  We taped it back up but it will never be the same.

Kenny’s 7th birthday party w/ friends

Kenny and his friend Harrison had a joint birthday party at Emerald City Gym today.  Since Kenny’s birthday is on Wednesday and Harrison’s is today, we decided that celebrating them together made a lot of sense.  It worked out really well!
