Birthday Boys

It's nearing the end of March which means we have two birthday boys in the house. Mike had a nice quite party. We were planning on going to visit his family and have a big bash, but we all got sick. We celebrated a few days early, before the colds set in in ernest, with just us.

Mike made his mother's cake. This time we added some chocloate chips to his icing for extra goodness. Mmmmmm.


A few presents from the family.


And a nice hug to end it all off.


Alex had a little bigger afair. Not much cause were still a little sick and I like to keep things small. We opened presents before cake this time. Alex was very excited to get a box from Gramie and Papa.


He was even more excited when daddy opened the box to reveal the gift inside ('cause he was happy with the colourful box and stopped).

Our presents were set up in a treasure hut.

First they set off for Hannah bedroom...


Where Alex got...

Which took us down the the boys' room...


Where Alex got...

So we could go outside...

Which took us to the back yard...

Where the treasure was "hidden".


Once Alex had warmed up, we had some cake.


And Alex reveiled he has 1 love interest. He is pretty tight lipped about it.

After a few sword fights in the front room...

we broke up the party and Mike went to work, leaving us to have a nice quite afternoon at home. If only Hannah would stop hitting the Birthday Boy.

I know for a fact that you took a picture of me with the cake while I was laughing. Did it not turn out?

I thought this was a better picture of you. I can add it if you like.

Looks like a fun time for all, especially Alex. The treasure hunt was a great idea. Love the picture of Mike's birthday hug.

He had a blast, even before he realized that the pictures were clues
