pictures from Noah's birthday

We had a fun filled day yesterday. Started out by waking the kids up at 5 am and heading out to Denny's to celebrate Noah's birthday with a FREE grand slam. Then I decorated 50 cupcakes and 1 cake. Took cupcakes to school for the 5th grade, picked up 3 other boys (upon after spending the afternoon in the company of 11 year old boys, Addie has decided that her brother is quite "normal" and not as weird as she thought... at least compared to all of his friends). Thank God for beautiful weather which allowed the boys to play football outside and have pizza, pop and cake on the porch (thus preserving the clean house for the family party later). The boys all left at 5 and 10 minutes later my folks showed up bearing gifts and pizza (we had 10 pizzas!!!). Mom and I started baking and at 6 pm we were joined by Grandpa Joe and Grandma Cenobia and Jen (the wife of the kids' dad). We had a very fun evening of pizza, pop (way too much of this- Addie couldn't sleep) visiting and presents.

Beaver Party? How fun! We are coming up on a triple one year old party. I wish you could get free Dutch Brothers on your KIDS birthdays as well as your own. Is a one year old too young for a mocha?

Anyways, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to help plan a get together. THere are several families I know as well (maybe the same ones?) Is it too early to start planning for this spring/summer?!

Woman! However did you make that orange frosting? It is very impressive!! That's funny about Addie and the boys. Poor girl...she'll realize someday that they don't ever change...they just get a little more "refined."
P.S. I am so in with the get together. I think we should do it next weekend. LOL....seriously tho, it would be so great!

I figured it was a Beaver theme. :)

Well, as much fun as it is to converse through blog comments, you can e-mail me about starting to plan an Ethiopian get-together. I am SO on board with it!
