Birthday Bash '09

Alright, for those aquainted with Mark and I, you know that we have two holiday babies. Braxton, born three days after Christmas and Kieran, born the day before Thanksgiving. The holidays became pretty insane for us in just two short years.

We have worried that due to their birthdays, they'll fall prey to the usual "I don't get enough attention because it's all about Jesus/the Pilgrims" curse. (Just FYI, we don't actually teach the pilgrims version of Turkey day. Just say no to small pox blankets.)

This year we decided to have a party, for both the boys - on the same day - before the all the hoopla started.
Best birthday party ever. Or at least, it was to us. (Even parents had a good time, I have pictures, you'll see.)

Again, there is no order to these. I would wait until Blogger is functioning, but what other day do I have the excuse of "I'm feeling better, but not good enough to do that?". Wow, that was very Meatloaf sounding... Also, I have done pretty much no editing - with the exception of a couple that were just cute, cute, cute. Like this one below..."Bubbles, Bubbles, Bubbles". (When does that movie come out of the vault? I need it!) Most of the party-goers. My lens apparently doesn't get wide enough to capture all people inside a parachute. The babies got into the spirit! Yay! Cake! I can hear Amy now "Michael! What are you doing?". Caught you! hahahaha. (I told you even the parents had fun!) Bubbles, cheap, but extremely effective entertainment. Yes, it's ok to be jealous of how photogenic they are. I know I am.Patty cake?Honing more skills on how to climb the walls back at home...Super heros moving boulders, what else?This was his first leap off, and the teacher almost had a myocardial infarction. Mark and I didn't even blink. This kind of stuff happens all the time. He is currently trying to see how many stairs up he can jump before it's too far. Meanwhile, I'm trying to figure out how long we can make it before we have to take him to the ER for a broken bone...More parents having fun...More boulder moving. My question with this exercise is "Why do they have them balancing, while carrying boulders? That has to be against OSHA regs...". More Jumping...Yes, you are seeing this picture right. Mark threw him. The thing is, he loved it. (Be amazed that the only time we've taken either boy to the ER was because of an infection on the weekend!) He so almost got "squish-ed".

And then we hydrated.

Thanks everybody for coming. You really helped make the boys' birthday's special. It couldn't have been done without you all!

Awesome party idea...a free-for-all with no clean up? I will have to remember this, haha!
