Belated much?

So, I was browsing through my posts the other day and realized that although I did wish Jack a happy birthday back at the beginning of December, I never did an actual post about his party. birthday boy bw for web

What a horrible mother I am; but I do have my excuses: 1. his birthday party was rescheduled a couple of times do to his having strep throat 2. his birthday is in December when there are five million other things going on, and 3. I was in the midst of putting together a ton of Christmas cards for my clients – I was amazed I even got mine out this year.

But those are all just excuses. Truth is, I just completely forgot to do one. Better late than never though…

Jack really wanted to have a Monster’s vs. Aliens birthday party this year. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find anything like that in the 10 different party stores I went in to. I could have ordered it, but again, I’m a horrible mother and procrastinated and just did not have the time to get everything in without paying a small fortune in express shipping and handling fees.

Amazingly, his daddy somehow talked him into having a Marvel Superhero birthday party (a theme I am sure that daddy himself would love to have at his own party – comic book geek – lol). Iron man for web 

All the kids in attendance were provided with masks.Owen as the hulk for web

Even Beau got his own mask, although he had a little trouble getting it on the right way.stubborn kid for web

Overall, despite Jack’s still being a little puny, despite it not being a Monster’s vs. Aliens birthday party, Jack still had a wonderful time. It’s a toss up as to whether he enjoyed his gifts more or seeing so many friends and family members at his house to celebrate his special day. opening gifts for web Oh who am I kidding? The boy is five – of course he enjoyed his gifts more : )

I can completely empathize with the birthdays in December. I haven't posted about Camryn or Courtney's birthdays yet.

Looks like he had a great birthday. =)
