The Monster Mash

My boys turned 5 the day after Christmas. Not a fun time to have a birthday. So this year we decided to wait a week and celebrate. Still pretty close to the Holidays. Next year we might wait even longer. The boys wanted a Monster Party, so that is what they got. We started the night off with more Pizza than anyone one person could ask for and moved right to presents. The boys were very excited.
The Grandparents gave the boys snow pants and snow boots. Both sets were worried that their gifts were boring, but the boys were out in the snow that night and the next morning. They love them! Thanks to all for the gifts!

Next up: The Pinata
This pinata was impossible to break. Even the big 'kids' couldn't get it open. Trent had to finally just throw it against the wall.
Cake Time

I did the trick candles this year. Not as tricky as I hoped. However, Aiden found the secret to putting them out. He just spit on them. Perfect.
It was a great night for the boys. Thanks to all who came and celebrated with us. Especially with having so much family time over the past 2 weeks!

That cake is awesome. I don't know how I'm ever going to keep up with you and your birthday parties. Annie is going to think I'm so lame.


And how the heck have you been so on top of all your blogging. Impressed yet again. SG looks like SO much fun. Sad we missed it.

Happy Birthday to your fun little boys!! Sorry we missed the party, sounds like it was lots of fun! I was laughing when you said Trent threw the pinata against the wall to break it open!! I agree with you, it is hard to have birthdays so close to Christmas, after so much celebrating and family time during the holidays. That's a good idea to wait a little bit before having their party, I might do that next year for Megan too. Oh I also loved the cake! You're so creative!!
