Celebrate Like You're 5

That's exactly what we did yesterday.

Despite the fact that I was exhausted after a grueling 24 hour shift at work and that I was sick and feverish with a cold/flu, despite the fact that the work schedule precluded having a "friend party," I was determined that Monkey was going to have an awesome 5th birthday.

We went swimming.

We listened to this, and danced around crazily and wildly in the kitchen.

We decorated.

We had "guests."

We ate Angry Birds pig cake.

We sang "Happy Birthday."

We had mounds of presents (okay, not really mounds, but apparently that's how it felt to the newly five year old.)

We had laughter, sugar, fun, and silliness. We had a birthday!


  1. Birthdays are the best! :) Even after 37 of them I still enjoy them! :)

  2. THAT is a birthday! We will sing all the birthday songs over Skype tonight! I love the guests!!!!

  3. That is so sweet. Sounds like a darn good birthday to me!

    Flintstone turns 1 in two weeks and I have no idea what to do. No plans at all so far . . .

  4. Also, you're an awesome mommy for still making the magic after a day like that. I know why you do it (it's rather obvious from the adorable pictures), but you still totally deserve props for it.

  5. And it looks like you all had a blast! : )

  6. Aw, what a fun birthday party! You always have fabulous pictures! Your boys are getting all grown up!!!! I hope you're feeling better.

  7. THat's a fantastic cake. Happy birthday.I hope you feel better.


  8. What a fun cake!!!!!! I want a birthday cake like that -- oh, to be 5 again!
