Well, we had Nick's birthday party last night and, you all, it was so great. So so great. It reminded me why I love having parties. We had amazing weather, the perfect number of people, great food and drinks. Everyone laughed and talked and drank and played games. It was just awesome. I have been smiling about how much I enjoyed it all day. The photo montage was a HUGE hit! I really am proud of it. Do you wanna see it? Now that it had it's big reveal at the party I can share it with you all. It's two and a half songs long and eight minutes, but I think that's pretty good considering Henry had an entire song for his first year alone! I cut it down to a song a decade! Anyway, here it is:
(songs: Carolina in my Mind~James Taylor, I've Got a Name ~ Jim Croce, Simple as it Should Be ~ Tristan Prettyman)
Nick made this trivia game for the party that had sound clips from different 80's TV shows, movies and video games. We borrowed the Academic Team's buzzer system from my sister's school, so we had actual Jeopardy style buzzers to use. It was ridiculously fun you guys. Like the funnest party game in the history of ever. Wanna see a couple pictures from the party? Okay, FINE. You talked me into it.
Here's the birthday cake. Which... yeah. I asked them to put balloons on it. BALLOONS. And then I got there to pick it up and they showed it to me and SERIOUSLY all I could see were sperm. Like, is that how NORMAL people draw balloons? I was thinking more a balloon bouquet, but whatever. Sperm shaped balloons are fine.
Here's the food table. Pretty cool Fruit arrangement, right? Thanks Boo! What's that? You want to know about the picture hanging over our dining room table? Yes, that is a Final Fantasy poster. No, it's not just there for the party. (sigh)
Nick with two of his best friends, one of whom came in from Pittsburgh. Very cool.
And the wives of those three boys
My sister, Boo, with Nick's other best friend, Andy. Andy made us Pixie Stick Martini's all night. It was extremely awesome of him.
Nick's brother and his girlfriend Nicole came in for the party too!
