Early Birthday Party

On this coming Sunday, Tater will turn 5. The problem was that only one friend would be in town and available that weekend. Hence, we had it Saturday... 7 kids, 8 adults and great weather. Phew....

First, some pictures of my attempt to make Optimus Prime (from the Transformer cartoon) on a cake:

The next day, he puts on his only Transformer shirt and poses with the cake (no way is Tot going to be left out... even if he hasn't gotten dressed yet!)

Time to blow out the candles!

Luckily, kids can be entertained by any kind of water. Even if it is just spraying a little in the air... along with water guns... of course!

It was very enjoyable. I have good friends. They brought food, helped clean up and are always good company when it comes to conversation. We talked about poop, farts, burps and all the other good things that comes with having children. Yep, need more days like that.

And this weekend, Uncle Bobby should be down to visit and we can have another 'party'. Lucky kid!

Awww... what a great party. Bet he loved the cake!

He's eligible for kindergarten now, right? ;)

Nice job on the cake, Mom! 5?!? Wow.

Happy Birthday to such a cute kid! (And who will have the harder time the first day of Kindergarten...Mom or Tater?)
