We celebrated Dylan’s 5th birthday this weekend! Its hard to believe its been five years already since he was born. Gma and Gpa Puppy, Renae, Natalie and Daniel and our neighbors Lingy and the Winercheskies all came over for a D’s party. Eric and I spent a good amount of time blowing up balloons with his air compressor. The kids popped a fair amount of them almost immediately, nearly putting Gma into heart failure.
We decked the house out in Halloween decor for his party this year. We got quite a few decorations from both Grandma’s and Dylan was very insistent about it ALL going up. Here are the spooky spiderwebs.
Pumpkin snowman (thats what the birthday boys describes it as).
My personal favorite – witchy witch!
Check out our new photos! Frames are on their way. We’ll be creating a gallery wall with them and other photos from our family photo session a few weeks ago. They all turned out so cute. The plastic is still on these, so thats why there is a glare.
This area is dedicated to Gpa Danny. These are the decorations Eric used to decorate Gpa’s hospital room at Mayo. The nurses were frightened of the blood.
Speaking of Gpa Danny – HERE’S THE CAKE. He’s only been asking every 5 minutes the last three days for a picture of it. Dylan went with a pizza theme this year for his party. Pizza for lunch and pizza cake for dessert. He was a bit leery of it though when I was making it. “Is that sauce?” “Is that cheese?” “Are those really pepperonis?” Then when Gma Toni asked him if he thought it would taste like cake or if it would taste like pizza, he gave her a worried look and said, “I don’t know!” Avery set him straight though and responded, “thats CAKE!!!” She knows cake.
The pumpkin snowman again. He photographs well.
Who is more excited – Eric or Dylan?
Ooooh, fancy Wild sweatshirt!
Here’s the Cars Scooter he’s been wanting for awhile now. He was pretty pumped to see this!
“Auntie Nae!” is always a hit with Avos.
It wouldn’t be Dylan’s birthday without a cruise on Pontunia! Natalie was first up for driving.
Avery dug out her warm weather hat from the boat tote – a nod to summer. We miss you summer.
Finally, it was time to eat the cake. We would soon know if it tasted like cake or if it tasted like pizza.
We’re singing to him here. Avery seems mad that we’re not singing to her.
She even tried to blow out the candles once it was all said and done. (For those wanting to know if Dylan did his spitting thing while blowing out the candles, the answer is YES. However, his father was taking the pics and missed the shot.)
10? I don’t think so D!
Everyone showing their age. This HAD to go on the blog. Gpa is 65. Clearly, thats what this means.
Oh what do you know, Auntie Nae! I can be whatever number I want!
Moment of truth…verdict – it tastes like cake! Phew! I was worried. Wedding ring is at the cleaners, in case you were wondering. ; )
Today is his actual birthday, so he ran the show today. A birthday soak in the hot tub with his cousins was on the agenda.
Again, you are 5! Not 10!
Up to no good? Probably!
5 years old! Hard to believe it!
Happy 5th Birthday, Dylan! We love you!
