Last week we celebrated my FIFTH birthday & it ended up being a nearly week long event which I loved! Trust me, I really milked it being my birthday... "Mom, can I watch just one more show before bed?? But, it's my birthday week!" Yep, I'm a stinker! Papa flew in from Chicago to join Grammy for my party & we all had a blast!
We helped Mommy decorate my homemade cake & made an absolute mess in the kitchen! That just proved that we had a good time doing it!
Our favorite part was licking the whipped cream off the beaters!
Normally I take both for myself, but this year Reese was big enough to join in!
My second favorite part was opening presents! I got some awesome Mario games for my 3DS & Wii & promptly went upstairs to test them out. Mommy had to drag me downstairs to sing & have cake. Told you I was a stinker!
My third favorite part was making a wish & eating my cake.
Of course my side-kick, I mean sister, joined in too!
We re-lit the candles so Reese could blow them out & make a wish too!
I chose a SpongeBob party this year since it's my new favorite show.
Mommy made the Bikini Bottom inner tube on the wall out of a foam wreath, white & red ribbon & blue puffy paint. It took her all of ten minutes to make so it was an easy decoration. Or so I'm told!
Mommy & Daddy made pink jellyfish out of balloons & streamers.
And I chose a pirate SpongeBob cupcake cake!
The day was positively beautiful so we set up a baby pool & slip & slide & the babies & kids spent a ton of time playing in the water. Just before dinner was served, every kid got naked & jumped in. We're crazy like that.
No family party is complete without playing bags!
After we dined on our Krabby Patty hamburger bar, it was time for cake & presents!
Auntie Lauren brought this red candle flower & it ended up spinning around, playing happy birthday. We soon found out that there was no way to shut it off & later that night Mommy heard it playing in her room & found it under her bed. She still isn't sure who put it there, but she's guessing that Uncle Matt was the culprit!
It was a very low key party with a small group of family & friends, but we all had such a great time! Happy FIFTH birthday to ME!
