birthday madness

Monday, June 25, 2012

so it turns out that with so many people living on the property now, there were four who had birthdays within a week of each other recently. of course, we had a big party. any reason to buy pepsi, right??

we set up everything in the activity center, made four batches of brownies, 2 major pot-loads of arroz con pollo (the fave party food!) and loaded ourselves up with pepsi. the little ones were turning 1 year, 2 and 3 years and the oldest turned 14 on friday. whew! lets do this again next year, shall we?

first, the preparations...brownies. nail painting. and fan flashing. 
you guys. aside from the fact that we've had some serious mascara melting days around here {we like to complain about how "tropical" it is around here instead of hot. sounds more fun and less suffocating}, when you're baking brownies all afternoon long with the oven cookin' there are not words to describe. 

anyway, then there was the party. the kids had fun popping all the balloons and chasing each other with bubbles before dinner.

believe it or not, above is the best shot of all the birthday girls. do you know how tricky it is to be taking pictures of 3 girls under the age of 4?? 

baby kelly is turning the big "1" this week! and yes, that's the biggest cheese smile you've ever seen, right? check out the johnson's blog to see life in the jungle from their perspective.

partner in crime for life, monica. or as the kids like to say....moquia. don't ask me why i/we                                    are standing that way. it just happened, alright?

then came the after-party, complete with a bonfire, marshmallows and face painting.

hope you all had a wonderful weekend too!


  1. Kelly is SO CUTE!!!! Gosh I miss that little girl and all the rest of the kids.
