party time

Last week, the day our house closed we celebrated my oldest boy's 5th birthday.  It was angry bird birthday party.  I am not one bit fond of these birds.  It was a party truly for my child - not for me (though I suppose I added my own touches ;)

I made the angry bird cupcakes.

 I hadn't even started decorating until after we signed the contract to sell our house at 3:30, so it was a bit rushed, but Sister came over to help and we managed to pull it together festively enough.

 And he was thrilled.



All the funny, sweet cousins.

loved using these empty Frappaccino Starbuck's bottles for milk, with stripey straws, of course.

 We set up a table in the sunroom for the party - don't know why I hadn't thought to do it before - the light was so nice.

And look! we even managed a family picture!  too bad I'm the only one looking in the "right" direction ; )

So thankful for five years with this little man. 

And yes, very glad I gave him the angry bird party of his little boy dreams.
