A Birthday Weekend

It is officially Brandon's birthday week! Even though his actual birthday isn't until this Friday, we celebrated this past Friday night since it was the only time we could get everyone together. I took Friday afternoon off  work to get everything set up for our Mickey Mouse themed party.

The details...

Mickey cheese!

I made sure that when Brandon and Jaden arrived to the party first, that there were balloons blown up and laying all over the place. This was a HIT.

Of course with a two-year old's birthday party, flexibility is key. We let the boys start eating their food before all the guests arrived because how can you tell them 'no' when it's sitting out right in front of them?

...And then there was the fact that Brandon did not want us to sing 'Happy Birthday' to him, and he refused to eat the cake that we had bought especially for him because he much preferred eating the cupcakes he had watched Mommy bake and decorate. Oh yea... and Jaden thought the number two candle he watched me blow out was actually edible. All of the sudden we noticed him chewing something strangely and then saw the big chunk taken out of the tip of the candle. And Brandon couldn't have cared less about his presents. He just wanted to keep snacking and playing with the balloons. Like I said... flexibility. ;)

Cody's 30th birthday was Saturday (which he and I celebrated with a date night to Sakura and 'The Vow') -- so Cody's grandma brought him his traditional present - a jar of peanuts. Cody's a big fan.

The sunglasses were a big hit... and he's been rockin 'em all weekend.

Can't believe we're four days shy of the big T-W-O!
