Birthday Season

Workin' up that courage to blow his candle out

It's birthday season around here. It started with Brother's late August. We celebrated with an "'A' is for alligator party" at Gators and Friends. I had fun with that one -- designing the invites, creating a birthday garland, baking funfetti cupcakes with picks (and even some egg-free chocolate cupcakes), and making fans. My baby boy is 2! And he is all boy!
I'd like to share later on some of the details, but I will give a tip for all you party-planning moms. Start at the Dollar Tree! They really have some great finds! I went to all the trouble designing and printing invitations on my own because I couldn't find anything online I really liked. Well, a fiasco with Kinko's and a trip to Office Max later, I visited the Dollar Tree only to find packages of 8 adorable gator invites. Yeah, I was sick!!!! Brother had a great time at his party. I love to hear him sing "Happy Birthday"!
Daddy turned the big 3-2 a couple of days before Millie Bug's birthday! We celebrated with dinner at Houston's in Dallas. Yummo! He had his usual prime rib and wanted to make sure I photographed AND blogged the dinner plate.

As mentioned before, we celebrated Amelia's birthday at Six Flags. She was in Heaven.

Wonder Woman!

Making sure to walk fast enough to get the cape to flow

I was Wonder Woman for Halloween one year when I was little - he, he, he. Love Amelia's cape flying in the wind!! So much fun with all the b-days!

Thank you for the birthday wishes! Jessica, Amelia will be Wonder Woman this year!!! haha. I thought it would be fun to dress up the same, but the adult costume requires arms, abs and a butt of steel. I have none of those things!!!

Rick and I had a blast with the gators and the kids. Thank you. I hate we couldn't make the six flags trip. We did have a good time in Arizona. Becca has Amelia' gift at her house. Tell Mr. Abram we received a very nice thank you card from him. Rick wants what Eric had! Love to everyone.
