Back2Back2Back Birthdays

We have 2 January Birthdays. This is good for catching after Christmas sales but challenging in terms of timing a celebration. Not only are we re-grouping from Christmas, the Christmas Eve birthday and travelers, but New Year classes and obligations start. It's either spur of the moment or in February (or both). This year we just had them both over one week-end.

Flower invited just a small group of friends. Bonus for the boys, right, cause one of Flower's bff's big bros just happen to be her big bros buds, too!

Isn't this the cutest bunch of people?!

Cake by KB. Another Pinterest inspired idea.
 I think I'll ruin my mil and send her an invite for her birthday which is TODAY! (bwahaha!)

One of Flower's favorite gifts was a "Lego Friends" set. Pink Legos'. The boys shouted, "Sacrilege!" and "Heresy!" and "Betrayal!!" LOL

The next day, Cub invited a bevy of friends, consumed pizza and cake, engaged in a rousing game of Capture the Flag (it was cold out, we served up Hot Chocolate), played Charades ....

Pattern for lego man here.
Find the Lego Man (we hid 30 paper men and Lego heads on our first floor. Feeche and his friend hid everything and made it a challenging hunt!).

and played with toys while enjoying good friends!

Here are our 2 notsolittles- 9 and 12. They are amazing people.
Aren't they adorable?!

And here are the February partee-ers. My mil and fil, both having birthday's this week-  today and on the 18th!

This is from their 50th Anniversary Celebration 2 years ago, but I LOVE this picture of them.
 They seriously look this great!

Happy Birthday, Mom and Dad!!

oHappy Birthday! We're headed into our birthday season--3 in 2 weeks. And your ILs do look great! If we could all age that well, life would be good.
