Monster Mash

I have needed to write this post for, oh, 2 months or so.  But I just kept putting it off.  Reid's 3rd birthday was March 23.  A while back I got the idea of a monster themed birthday party.  It was meant to be because I kept finding things that fit the party theme.  And my friend, the master baker, kept sending me monster cakes and cupcake ideas.  Let's just say when I grow up, I want to be my friend Michelle!!!

We had the party on Saturday, March 24 in the evening.  The weather was PERFECT! Here is the birthday boy trying to figure out what he can get into next!

My very artistic husband made this cardboard "photo booth" the morning of the party.  The kids ABSOLUTELY loved it!

Reid and his buddy Brinkley!

My older monster!

And now to the moment we all have been waiting for.....the absolutely fabulous CAKE!  It is beyond words!!!  The kids fought over the cake ball eyes!

And the precious cupcakes were the "icing on the cake".  Ha!  

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Reid!  Happy Birthday to you!

Our little family

The party was so much fun.  For once, I actually was able to sit back and take it all in!  I think all of the little kiddos (and big kiddos) had a lot of fun! I had a table set up with Monster Mash.  It was like a make your own trail mix table.  Towards the end of the party the kids started making their monster mash.  It was a hit!  I think I will incorporate that into parties from now on.

I can't believe our baby is 3.  Time is flying by!  Makes me OLD and SAD!  Soon he'll be asking girls out on dates.  Kinda like this...

 "Hey Melia, wanna go out with me sometime?"  Too cute!

Our friends have quadruplets.  These are the 3 boys with Reid.  Their names are Madden, Jagger and Rocco.  I laugh with their mom all of the time because Reid only ever says Jagger.  He talks about Jagger ALL OF THE TIME!  We think that he thinks they are ALL Jagger!  It cracks me up!

And because she is just TOO pretty to leave out, here is the completion of the quads, Miss Sloan!  Love her....want to take her home with me.....but I think her momma would notice.  Well, on second thought, maybe she wouldn't;)

Reid's party was a great success!  I'm already brainstorming ideas for next year!  Our beautiful blessing is growing up!  And he never stops moving!!!
