I cringe thinking about it.
We decided to keep his birthday party small. I mean REAL small.
When Little A was this age, I invited all of his playmates that he had at the time and it was chaotic. Cupcakes in my carpet, frosting on his new toys, screaming, running....the whole bit.
But this party was nice and calm. We had one of his friends over, and the rest were family.
We went with a Monster theme. I call D my little monster anyway so I only deemed it appropriate to have a party named after him.
I went online to my favorite online store Etsy. I found this shirt design
and had it personalized with the D man's name on it. (Ignore "Evan" on there).
I received my shirt within a week, and took it over to Sugarlips Cakery. I gave them the t-shirt and they were able to come up with this:
It was a rainbow cake inside and it was delicious. That place never ceases to amaze me. I hosted a baby shower earlier this summer for a friend of mine and they converted a jungle bedsheet (theme of the nursery) into this:
It was oh-so-yummy!
At any rate, enjoy the pics of the D man's bday.

And some more girls.
The class was gearing up for the carnival outside.
With his friend, Taegan.
The Kindergarten campus always makes a visit to the Elementary school campus for the Halloween carnival. Little A was so excited to see some of his old buddies.
I purchased a pumpkin during the week with hopes of being able to carve it for Little A's carnival at school. They were having a pumpkin contest, but I just couldn't squeeze in the time to do it. On Saturday, I finally cut into it and created this masterpiece:
OK, well it's not quite the masterpiece and certainly not as elaborate as the other pumpkins I have done in the past, but just when I thought my 6 year old was going to help me with this, he booked it outside just as soon as he caught a whiff of the inside of the pumpkin. Yeah I don't find it to be a pleasant odor either kid, but unfortunately I got stuck making my own design this year for his pumpkin.
The boys got dressed pretty early, which was great for me because I was able to take some decent pics of them outside.
Big A decided to be a hot dog again and made a promise to himself that he's going to be a hot dog every year from here on out.
We went trick-or-treating with my neighbor and her two kids. They had such a great time and we didn't return home until our bags were full of candy.
The D man received some super points from me because of how amazingly well he behaved when we were going door to door. He never ran away, threw a tantrum--nothing. He was perfect.
