Once again it’s November.
Just how did that happen?!
Better how question, how is Caleb 9 and the triplets 6?!
Seems that time flies whether I want it to or not and I rarely seem to accomplish all I want to in a given day.
Maybe October flew by because I had to spend so much time preparing to celebrate FOUR birthdays in November!
First up, Caleb turned 9. To celebrate we threw a “movie-themed” birthday – took our family and six boys to see the new movie “Wreck-It Ralph” – thanks to coupons it only cost me $30.50 to take everyone but that’s another post.
My boy – hard to believe he’s almost in double digits.
Movie birthday cake. It came out pretty good – it’s supposed to look like a popcorn bucket with popcorn coming out of it – hopefully that part is obvious!
Saturday the 10th we celebrated Caleb with movies and movie candy. Sunday we switched gears to celebrate with owls and 6-year-olds in pajamas because three silly girls were turning six.
It took some doing but we transformed the house from boy party to girl party – from movie cake to owl cake.
We had a “night owl” pajama party so with some help from my friend, Emily at Belle Papers and Parties we transformed the dining room table into a bed.
Add in some cool decorations.
Since it was a triplet party everyone had to sing “Happy Birthday” three times! Of course, we only managed to get a good picture of Rachel blowing out the candles – go figure!
After cake came presents, lots and lots of presents. Turns out every kid wanted to come to a pajama party and we had 15 guests for our owl party. Tight squeeze but they all seemed to enjoy it.
After presents they watched a movie and seemed to enjoy every minute. Overall they did great and we had a wonderful time celebrating.
Happy 9th Birthday, Caleb.
Happy 6th Birthday, Julianna, Rachel and Alyssa.
Mommy loves you and can’t believe you are growing so quickly!
