Ethan's Birthday Pics

Ethan had a nice family birthday party.  Since he is a little on the shy side, we opted to do favor boxes for his class, have a family party and do Legoland with Mommy on Wednesday next week, in lieu of a big party.  We had a pajama party with "breakfast for dinner", Ethan's favorite meal of the day.  Grandma came to visit from LA and our neighbors, Audrey and Burke stopped by for some cake.

I managed to find Mario Bros jammies at Target yesterday morning.  What a find!!  I thought, maybe I'll see if they have some Mario pj's while I was there getting bday wrapping paper and to my surprise they had them in his size!  The other surprising find...they had a Sonic the Hedgehog tshirt for Javi!  My mom had already purchased some Wii pj's for Mark (you can see them in the pic of Ethan opening his presents) for Christmas, so all the boys had their gaming jammies on ;)  Cute!

We had biscuits and gravy, hash browns, eggs, and bacon.  The adults had mimosas too, with the left over champagne from New Years.  Cake for desert, of course!  I'm still stuffed from all the carbs.  

Ethan received all gaming presents, of course!  His favorite past time!  Thanks everyone!

Thanks for all the cake tips, Sharon.  Couldn't have done it with out your wealth of cake knowledge!
