Mr. A's Birthday!

Now, for a few pictures from Mr. A's birthday bash Friday night - well, it wasn't a bash, just the 7 of us having hot dogs, cake and ice cream followed by the opening of a few presents, but it sounded like a bash'll see why.

First we started off with hot dogs and chips for dinner - one of Mr. A's favorite meals :)

Then, we followed with a green cake with green frosting and some Bluebell Vanilla Bean ice cream. Yum!

Here's Mr. A blowing out the candles......
And Miss Baby looking on from her highchair.....

When we asked Mr. A what he wanted for his birthday, he said "Green" :) and therefore, that was the theme of the cake. (a white cake with food coloring did the trick!).

Must be good!

Well, what's left after one of your favorite meals, cake, and ice cream? Presents, of course!

Mr. A's favorite movie is Toy Story and CKB and I found a plush Woody and Bullseye (not pictured) for him - now he has his own Woody just like Andy!

Finally, his very own BIG MagnaDoodle - for those of you with children, if you don't have one of these, get one, this is the ALL TIME BEST EVER "TOY" we've gotten the children - the girls, especially, have spent HOURS and HOURS drawing on these things. So much so that they're each on their second one! The smaller versions are great for car trips. The boys like them too, but the girls REALLLLY like them. (end of commercial)

Ah yes, his very own sword and shield. Sigh. What were we thinking?

Let the games begin! You'll notice Mr. A looks VERY happy and Mr. E looks a bit concerned. The girls in the background are both wearing green shirts in honor of Mr. A's birthday - wasn't that sweet? They thought to do that on their own that morning :)

Isn't that face priceless??? He's looking at a "color changing" hot wheels car. These are pretty neat - we discovered them a little while back and finally found a green one. These were great for getting Mr. A to take a shower (instead of a bath) w/o a bunch of fussing - the car stays in the freezer until shower time and then we grab it and go - it changes color in the warm water of the shower, gives him something to hold on to and is just a fun toy. (end of 2nd commercial)

Who's that stranger? Why, it's me. Believe it or not, I'm still out here - pictured with my 2 little ones - Miss Baby is wondering why Daddy has the camera for a change and Mr. A is just being himself :)

And here's Miss Baby after all the festivities - THAT'S ALL FOLKS!

Precious and priceless birthday. Glad to finally get a view of you. We gals behind the cameras so seldom get our pictures made. Thanks, hubby, for taking her picture.
