CELEBRATION TIME ...come on!!
Here is my big 7-year-old right before his party- in fact he instructed my dad to take this picture... Again, a big thanks to Steve, the best neighbor ever, for constructing the lovely blue-tarp canopy...I thought we'd need it for shade, which we did, but it also came in handy when Addison was opening up presents and the sky decide to open up too, dumping rain for a good 15 minutes...but thanks to Steve, we all stayed dry, happy, and OUTSIDE!
Addison was dying for a pinata this year, but I was dying when I saw the price! So, Aunt Mimi and I tried our hand at paper mache! It didn't work so well for our first 2 attempts, but the 3rd time's a charm! The kids painted and decorated it, and Kelly strung it for the kids to hit...
And hit it they did!, or should I say hit it HE did...Addison was the only one who got to swing at it before it broke and the pandemonium began!
How did he get to be 7 already?? and SO handsome!
After opening these legos up, he promptly disappeared into his room for at least an hour building this contraption...
Only later did he discover that some of his other presents are also fun!
And I also got to eat my favorite meal CAFE RIO PORK, or if you live at our house and are trying to get the kids to eat, you call it Root Beer meat. Such a yummy dinner was followed by an even yummier cake- Chocolate Ganache SO DELICIOUS! Thanks Deena!
