Families Make Parties FUN!


The party? It was insanity. Yes. And every time I think about writing about it so I can share the insanity with you all (I am SO generous!), I get a little twitchy.

So, I'm going to show you some pictures instead. And you will see that somehow, every picture contains something rather crazy. And that sums up the whole thing. So, pictures are appropriate!

At our little family party on Friday (not so insane), Caleb opens his gifts. Smile, Aidan!:

Aw, nice smile honey.

I decide to take a picture of the cake. It's a Harry Potter cake! Isn't it nice? What? You say you see something odd in the background?

Hmm, Jen has a nice smile, too. The true nature of my family seems to be revealed in pictures. Surely Jeff will come through for me! Smile, Jeff!

Yes. Well, that's just about right. Caleb looks lovely, though! Jim, I'm going to take a picture of you! Because you are not blood-related! You'll let me take a nice picture! Right?

I give up.

The next day was the party at the theatre with all the misinterpretations due to language issues and resulting demon-like behaviour. The movie was fun (thought I didn't understand much of it and also I sat in the car with Liam for half an hour so as to give the movie-goers a break from the schreeching). The hour in the party room afterwards was...challenging. The look on the face of one of the kid's parents in the background (who is my HERO because he stayed to help out) sums it up perfectly:

Caleb is a happy little seven year-old. He had a great weekend, despite my inability to capture a decent picture of it. Oh, wait! I may have one...

Nope. But isn't Jen's hair pretty?

ha ha! I love your pictures! I'm glad I wasn't at the party so that you couldn't post pictures of me looking silly.

What I always say about kids' birthday parties is: too many kids, not enough alcohol.

Oh, man. Bwahahahaha! This is totally like the parties I've tried desperately to capture on film, only to come away with 900 shots of people looking like they are afflicted.

Yay for family!

Looks like a perfect party to me. Congratulations on JUST the right amt of goofy.

The party looks so much fun! I don't think your family is goofy at all!

I have always wanted either all boys, or more boys than girls. And your stories still don't deter me! Granted, they're nowhere near teenagers yet, but still -- your boys are off to a good start! :)
