Birthday greetings!

I have to share with you all the most amazing Birthday party I went to last night...mine (& my hunnies, his is the 19th). It was a SpongeBob Squarepants party, an undersea adventure. My 3 youngest kids (9,6 & 4) have been spending the last couple of weekends with Grandma preparing for the I know why... See the shark?!?
No detail was missed. I entered Grandmas house to be engulfed with the waves and bubbles of the ocean and a giant squidapus (that's what the kids called it). I was offered an *ocean water* drink. It was riesling wine (my fav) and pineapple juice...yummy! They had made up some outdoor games which were supposed to be played during the day. We had another party to go to earlier, so it was dark when we arrived. I thought it was better in the dark anyway, it was deep in the dark ocean!

We followed the painted fish to SpongeBobs house...he wasn't home but we had to *search* for his sponges, and yes, they were square!
There were killers whales and sharks trying to eat us and the babies. The kids had the best time trying to eat us and *swimming* around us. They all painted and helped create their cardboard costumes.

Mean shark...look at those teeth!

Is that Shamu??? Another shark too...aaahhhhh!!! They were trying to eat me , Grandma, and Scoutie (the dog).

Here they are all the ocean creatures swimming in the ocean waves...Max



My mother joined us too. Here we are getting ready to eat sushi, even the new plates Grandma Karen got were called tidal (and 50% off at Pier One, score Grandma Karen)! Look up at the top of the pictures and you can see the bubbles above us. I look like a drunk holding the bottle, I was making my *ocean water* right before Nathan took the picture.

To finish off the meal we had a DeLiCiOuS pineapple upside down Birthday cake...mmmmm The kids were so proud of themselves, they helped Grandma cook it and I heard they were eager spoon/bowl lickers!

Max helped me put in the candles...

The kids also made homemade, hand cranked banana ice cream....yuuummmm

We are so blessed to have such a wonderful Family!

Happy Birthday to US...

I can't thank Karen and the kids enough and I will never forget this birthday party. It will go down in our family history of GR8 parties, second only to Zane's awesome army party...or Eve's Princess for a day party...
