It’s no surprise that for his birthday Nathan wanted an Aggie football party. This is the first party that we haven’t had at home and it was AMAZING! I enjoy having people at my house, but to just show up somewhere, set up a few decorations, and then leave was great for us this year. Our church actually lets you use one of their rooms adjacent to the playground so they have everything you need right there. It was so nice for this pregnant mama (at that time)!
Here’s the birthday boy focusing on holding up three fingers.
This cake and these cupcakes were one of those things that seemed so easy beforehand and then came out looking very homemade…which is ok. I’m just saying. Working with icing is a lot harder than it looks…for me and Scott, anyway.
After I finished the cake (the night before the party), I let Nathan take a look and asked him if he like it. He said he changed his mind and didn’t want a football cake anymore. He had now decided less that 24 hours before the party, that he wanted a Ninja Turtle cake. Too late, son.
I love this sequence of pictures. He looks so cute and tough all at the same time.
We got the kids in a circle and played hot potato with a football. Scott was playing the Aggie War Hymn for the music. We had some Baylor and Texas fans who weren’t as excited about the game as the kids.
Then, Scott lined them all up to see who could kick it the farthest. He wore a whistle around his neck and the whole time during the party Nathan kept calling him “Coach.” It was hilarious.
Here goes Nathan…
The birthday boy blowing out his candles.
The kids loved watching him open presents. Every time he opened a new gift, you would hear shouts of ”awesome”,”cool,” and “I have one of those!” They kept crowding him out and he was almost under the table at one point. It was fun to watch!
He was so tired by the end. He wanted to take all the balloons home.
He had such a great time…Happy Birthday, sweet boy!
