I just posted about how Tiffany and the boys came to Richmond, well the day after they left, Bons and I got in the car to return the favor and grace Norfolk with our presence! The plan was for us to go down there Friday night, help with a yard sale on Saturday morning, then have the party on Sunday. Well, the weather decided not to cooperate for a yard sale, so we dragged everything outside and then 5 minutes later the rain started. So Tiffany and I ended up dragging everything back inside!
But the weather cleared up Saturday afternoon, so we got to spend a little time outside at the park, while Mom and Dad went on a lunch date!

Then Sunday, was party day! My sister has learned over the years to just leave it to me. So her and Josh packed up the kiddos to go to the park for a birthday fun time. While leaving me at home to get to work on the "E-I-E-I-O" party theme (aka Old MacDonald--but the boys cant say that yet).
I found these cute animal poofs on pinterest and could not resist making them for the party:
I also made a farm house cake complete with animal cupcakes! This was nice cause each boy got to pick the animal they wanted... Garrett, of course, chose the Cow and Holden picked the pig, and Corbin got the lamb that he wanted! A win for everyone!
A birthday is not complete without presents...
The James got the boys matching fishing sets and they LOVED them!
Then it was time for singing and cake...

This next picture cracks me up, cause little Corbin is off to the side looking so sad that it isn't his birthday celebration (just wait little one, you only got about a month now).
As it turns out, none of them really love the cake aspect, but were totally down with some icing licking...

Want to create you own Old Macdonald birthday party, Betty Crocker has some great ideas here. Plus a tutorial on making that cake yourself!
