The Big Top Party!

Here are the pictures from the boys birthday party in NO particular order. I have also decided that I will use all of our names from now on. We celebrated the boys birthday (March 22) on Saturday March 21st, at our house. We had a carnival themed party. The big top was the play yard.

This is my oldest nephew (he's 16), Austin pitching and my brother the coach (in real life), directing (little)John (Tiger) on his first game of baseball.

Mason (Monkey) is on the left and little John on the right. How many 3 year olds do you see actually "read" their birthday cards?!

(big) John (my sweet hubby) taking a break after grilling 60 hot dogs, with a cold one (Pepsi)!

My father-in-law (Hoyle) taking it all in. Can you believe he will be 81 next month?

My brother (the coach). He is 44 years old (almost 13 years older than I). Isn't he handsome?!

This is my Daddy (Marvin) thinking about the plan for the baseball game (also a coach....but a few years back)! He will be76 years old this year!

This is the "big top". We finally got the gravel hauled in and the timbers all fixed and scattered the day before the party. We worked out hinnies off!

My beautiful sil, Pam on the left, my Mom on the right, my boys (Mason on the left and John on the right), my nephews (Austin in the back and Peyton in the middle (he's 10 years old).

This is our precious Miss KK (she is 16 years old). She is my Mother's helper and such a blessing to our family!

Here the boys are ready to dig in to their cakes. I made all of the cupcakes and their cakes too.

I made vanilla icing on milk chocolate cupcakes with sprinkles and clown decorations.

We had lots of guests and plenty of food to boot! We iced down Pepsi products, Capri-Sun and bottled water in the big red tub. There was chips and dip, as well as packaged popcorn (done that morning by yours truly) in the bags sitting behind the food and then the cupcakes.

Here are the boys and us with my parents before the party.

Here are the boys with one of their presents (the picnic table) from my parents.
And I see that is all. Now, you know us all and welcome to the family if you made it to the bottom picture! LOL! The boys had a wonderful day and so did we!

Oh wow, Marva, thank you for sharing such lovely photos - it looks like a great party, and much less stressful than my daughters (haha).

P is doing well thank you, I left him at hospital last night in good spirits and will return today, and fingers crossed that he will get discharged at some point today. He will be much happier at home, thank you so much for your prayers, they are really appreciated at this time.

I've posted the 'handmade for you, by me' post on my blog, so if you wish to be one of my lucky (??) recipients, then just reply to my message!! It would be nice to send some smilernpb lovliness inernationally!!

Busy day ahead, so had best be off. Take care. Hugs.

Loved all the party pictures! I felt like I was right there in the excitement! I think the cupcakes looked excellent- great job!

It sounds (and looks) like you all had a great time! The play structure is going to be SO much fun for your boys, it's so nice you were able to get it done in time for the party.

I think I'm going to have to pass up on the "handmade for you" project. I'm cutting back on a few things right now, but maybe I can jump on board sometime in the future again. It sounds like fun.
