The Birthday Bash! That's a Wrap! (WARNING...this is LONG!)

Okay...I'm warning you again....this will be long. I'm about to post a mother load of pictures.... and I'm going to do it the easy way through snapfish, so I hope you can all see 'em!

So, we had Gage's party on Saturday. I assure you...we were busy, busy, busy getting ready. It does not matter how much time I allow for preparations...I always seem to need about 10 helping hands right before the party!

But...the party was fun for our little Army Dude!

The decorations were out...








My mom made THE most amazing cake!








Just look at how "little boy" he looks. Where did all that baby go?????


Racelle, Austin, & Jason...


...getting ready to blow out the candles...




Just look at the excitement on his face in this next shot!


Aiden & Victoria...he had soooooooo much fun with that saw!!!


Rachel making the "fishy" face.


Pam & Mr.Pam


...which leads me to this thought: there are many couples/families at the party that I didn't get photographed as a couple or as a family! Sorry.... I was slackin'.

Nathan & Ginger & Dean & Emory...


Why, yes, that IS a tank-tattoo on my face.
And yes, that IS my husband in the "dickhead hat".


Tera & Nathan...


Mark & Mamasita in the camo-netting tent we erected in the backyard...thanks to our neighbor Bill with the gardening stakes!


Tera, Me, Pam


Gage asked me, "You wanna be in my band?"
...of course I do!

(we were singing the theme song to "Maggie & The Ferocious Beast")

"NO MORE PICTURES, PLEASE!"

Gage was REALLY tired of the paparazzi by this point.

...in fact...Gage was just really tired by this point!
He zonked out on the couch while the party...or rather, AFTER-Party, was still a-blazin'!


And perhaps that's where I shall leave this today...and share the tales of the after party another day.
Let me just say---it took 3 grown men to get one after-party goer home. Damn those strawberry daiquiris!

That looks like lots of fun! I love the table decorations. What was the cake? I couldn't tell from the angle. It looks like a heli pad. And what a cute family you guys are!

Oh, I totally forgot to give my mom credit for the cake!!!!

My mom made the cake.
On the left is a helipad, with a chocolate dipped helicopter. Then on the right are 3 little "army dudes" sleeping in their camo tents. How cooooooool is that????

It was a AWESOME party! And the cake tasted as good as it looked. Hmmm? I'm talking about it as if it is past tense. Hey, is there any cake left? I am SO coming over for big ol' slice.

Those strawberry daiquiris were bad news! I'm glad I gave up on those early.
