The Family Party

 Now that we're home and more family can come over to celebrate the kids' birthdays, we usually have a separate family party instead of trying to have all of our family and friends all over at once.  It also gives me a chance to try out ideas for the kids' cakes before their other parties.

 We got sparkler candles and Jack couldn't get his to go out.

 I love the look Alice is giving him here!

 Jack's birthday theme was Legos this year.  I'm showing you this centerpiece because there's no picture of a similar one at his kid party--I'll tell you the story on that later.

 Alice wanted a ballerina party, so I used a lot of pink and purple.  I tried these colored jars a couple of times and finally got some I was happy with.

 Alice was sooooo excited to get a pink dinosaur!

 She has already played with the water table enough to make it worth it!

 Two things Jack loves:  Legos and Harry Potter!

The kids had fun playing outside some, too.  I took the picture from inside, though, because I don't have as much fun in the heat as they do!

Oh my goodness.. our Lego loving Harry Potter boys got that game for Christmas. They are STILL playing it like crazy.
