Birthday Parties

This last week we had 2 birthdays to celebrate in our family.

Ham’s was Thursday where he turned to big 0-3!

He had had fun opening gifts.

I love his face on this one…and it was only a shirt.

The Birthday Fairy got him the BEST gift.

A camera.

He is such a sweetie.

The kidlets and cousins with all the loot.

For his cake I just went basic and yummy with a white layer cake with custard between each layer and a chocolate buttercream frosting. I decorated the sides with M&M’s, because if you look closely at the M on a M&M and turn it on it’s side it becomes a 3. How clever is that?!?

I had to hold him back from the candle. He started blowing before the candle was even lit or we were even close to getting through “Happy Birthday to You”!

I noticed that in every picture his face is dirty. Maybe I should have wiped him down after dinner…oh those little details get me every time!

 

Earlier in the week was Miss T’s 4th birthday.

They started the evening with a piñata. Miss T was first to take a swing.

The rest of the kiddos had their chance.

I think Roo was the first one to crack into the candy.

And Nathan knocked out the rest of the candy.

Einstein and Big J had their chance at hitting it just for fun.

Big J couldn’t figure out why he was having trouble hitting it.

After the piñata we headed indoors for “Place the Princess in the Castle”

Ham put her right in the spot for the little kids.

And Nathan was right on the spot for the bigger kids.

The mask that Julie had the kids use made me a little nervous, I don’t want to know what they use it for when they aren’t breaking piñatas.

Here are the two cutie and inseparable cousins.

I love this picture of LaLa and Miss T playing with the gifts.

I couldn’t resist taking these pictures of Baby Boo throwing a temper-tantrum. I don’t even know what she wanted, but she was pretty dang upset.

Look at how happy she is. What a cutie!

Happy Birthday Miss T. I am so glad we were there to celebrate with you!
