And then there were birthdays

School ended at various times this year. Carrie and Damon were done on Thursday, the 4th of June. Preschool had the closing picnic and playground date that day, and the 6-12th grades finished. They'd gone to school one wintry day and then it was discovered that the fuel lines on the buses were freezing, so they cancelled the elementary school day. Hence, the elementary kids had to make up one extra day, June 5, Damon's birthday. So while Liam was at school for his very last day and the other two were home with me, we baked Damon's cake.

He wanted Stuart, the minion with one eye and NOT stick-uppy hair. So, hello Google images, and voila:



 
Stuart was devoured in days, and he was mighty tasty.
 
Grandmama had sent minion napkins and banners (which are still up... hey, it's still the birthday boys' month!) and she'd also ordered black party favors featuring 40 and Vintage Dude since there was another birthday boy in the house.
 
Yes, Dada turned the big 4-0.
 
So we did what anyone does. We threw a party.
 
A big party.
 
Since Damon turned 5 on June 5th, it was his Golden birthday. Dada turned 40, so it was his Oldie party.
 
Hence, a Golden Oldie party! About 50 people from karate, preschool, work, family from far away, the neighborhood, college, and the rest of our lives showed up to help us eat the cookies, homemade ice cream, burgers, hot dogs, rice, veggies, watermelon, chips, Buffalo chicken dip, homemade lemonade, and other drinks we had out. Needless to say, we still have pop and chips and crackers and stuff leftover from the party.
 
WE WILL NOT BE DOING CHRISTMAS IN JULY IN 2015.
 
Just throwing that out there. Big party for the year, done. Check.
 
We were apparently too busy chatting and stuffing ourselves to take many pictures, but this might give you a general overview:
 



 
 
Thank you all for coming, for eating and laughing and playing with us, and for blessing both of our birthday boys. We really enjoying having you all over. Thanks for doing life with us!
