Cael had a great birthday party over the weekend! He wanted an Angry Birds party so that’s what he got! I made Angry Birds cupcakes, blew up balloons and put Angry Birds faces on them and made an Angry Birds game from cans & balls. I also had an Angry Birds book out for everyone that came to the party to sign. I decided to take a picture of Cael with each person that came to his party & those are being turned into his thank you cards!! Our friend Angelia from Sabetha sent Cael a thank you card for a Christmas present we gave Jethro his first Christmas. It was a personalized thank you with a picture of the boys on it. Since then I have made personalized thank you cards for every birthday. It’s so easy on walmart.com. This year I decided to really make it even more personalized. I’m excited with how they turned out! (I have to pick them up tonight)
We were going to make Angry Birds pizzas but we decided not to. This was the most relaxed I have ever been before & during one of his parties. For whatever reason I didn’t feel stressed or rushed or crazy. It was a very strange feeling for me to be calm! We got decorating done the night before when we were hanging out with Grandma & Granddad Marsh and Uncle Curtis, cupcakes were made Friday night so I just had to decorate on Saturday and we just had pizza so there was no cooking before. It was an awesome party!
Cael was in warp speed opening his presents. He would open one, look at it for half a second, toss it and move on to the next. Poor Grammy was trying to write down who it was from and what it was while he was going crazy. I took pictures and Daddy hung out while Papa recorded it on the video camera. Lots of people came and everyone seemed to have fun!
