Birthday Slacking

I forgot to give an update on Isaak's family birthday party. We held the May birthdays at our house. That included: Isaak (turned 8), my nephew Evan (turned 11), and my nephew Edison (turned 2).

They all like cats, so I created a Space Cats invite for them. I took out my address and stuff for this post. Edison kept pointing to Isaak saying, "Ikick". He says his name so cute. He's talking more and more.

Isaak got a Lego set and journal from my parents. Aunt Terra gave him grow your own garden things in cans, and boxes. Cilantro and something else is growing in our kitchen. Mushrooms grew in a box. They grow fast! Aunt Angela is taking Isaak out to see The BFG when it comes out.

He's all about being silly lately. Stickers are on his face. Notice the gold wrapping paper that my mom found. Gold is his favorite color.

Isaak wasn't too excited about the mushrooms. He doesn't care for mushrooms, but he likes them in Chicken and Dumplings and Chicken Bitki, so we made Chicken Bitki with them. It was fun watching them grow!

I try and find perfect gifts for my nephews and niece. Edison needed a toddler pillow, and I had a book I reviewed for him with his name in it. 

Evan was asking for a robe. I didn't think about the fact that it looked like a graduation gown. Ha! It came satin boxers. I tried to pull a Christmas Story by embarrassing him, "Evan try the boxers on! ;)" He wouldn't have anything to do with that.

My house is small. If you remember right I was worried about having extra people there. There were 15 adults, and 7 kids. My niece's boyfriend came, and one of my brother-in-law's invited his parents. I wasn't too excited about the in-laws because they are on their other side. We made it work.

We had Greek food. Funky food is sometimes hard for older people to understand. My 89 year old Grandpa was clueless. He didn't know what 1/2 the things were, and we had to help him. It was all good though! 

We pushed the kids outside to eat. My sister said, "Good thing it's not raining." I said, "Even if it was they'd still go out there. We have a covered porch. Outside is where they belong when there's lots of people."

Even cramped, I am sure it was a great time for everyone that came! I always hated how hot it got when we hosted parties in our cramped apartment so we tried to keep the numbers small too. Sometimes that just can't be avoided though.

Glad you made it work and had a good time. The invites are cute!

Happy birthday to all three boys! I'm going to feel the same way as you when we move to a new place next week. It's going to be too small to have many people over at once.

A robe? LOL. I had no idea they even still made bathrobes.

I'll have to look for that mushroom kit. What a great idea!
