Nolan's Birthday Party

We had a lovely day on Saturday for Nolan's birthday party. It was the first day all week that it stopped raining! We were able to be outside all afternoon. I'm having issues with uploading some awesome videos of our gunnysack race. *It still won't work Wednesday morning...but you should be able to view one here and here (eventually). Here's a few pictures:

Cousin Tanner in the Cozy Coupe. No matter how old you are...these cars are still cool.

Nolan crawling into his gunnysack for the race.

A little munchkin.

He really was into his cards this much. He always opened them before the present!

These were....underwear. How exciting!

Don't we all feel like this when a crowd of people stare at us and sing a song that seems to take f-o-r-e-v-e-r? I hate being sung to. Loathe it.

No girlfriends! Whew! That there is a golden cake with buttercream frosting and mini peanut butter cups. It was so simple and easy to make and delicious.

This here is a walnut spice cake with cream cheese caramel frosting. The frosting was supposed to be all swirly and pretty but something happened and it pooled. The recipe was a mile long but I think it was worth it. It was way too rich for me but there wasn't any left at the end of the day.

Taking a few final swings at the pathetic homemade pinata. We did blindfold all the kids first. Nolan just got to finish it and he was having a hard time swinging blindly!

Avrie giving it a gentle little tap. Which is quite opposite of her personality!

You're such a fun Mom. Happy Birthday, Nolan. About the birthday song... my boys LIVE to have people sing happy birthday to them. I wonder what that says about them and me? Can we say center of attention much? Ha.

p.s. Pool or no pool, that cake looks divine. It doesn't surprise me much that there was none left at the end of the day.
