Payson Turns 5!!

Well actually he turns five in three days but we had the celebration this last weekend since next weekend wouldn’t work.

I didn’t tell Payson it wasn’t his actual birthday. He wouldn’t have liked to celebrate his birthday on a different day. Last year or the year before we let him know it wasn’t his actual birthday but that we were celebrating it on a different day so grandma and grandpa could make it and it bothered him a lot! So I straight up lied to him and said it was his birthday and he was five now. haha

Allan and I decided, probably back when we had only Brooklyn, that we would only do family birthday parties, no friends. It’s simple and more intimate and works for us.  photo 037eresized_zps1494da22.jpg photo 039eresized_zps1e687a96.jpg

We played pin the mustache on the Mario at one point. That was hilarious. Sierra went first and stuck her mustache on Yoshi instead and we were all giggling and thought that was an awesome surprise. Sierra started crying, poor thing. I let her go again later. But the best part was Brooklyn laughed really hard at Sierra putting the mustache on Yoshi instead of Mario and then when it was Brooklyn’s turn she put the mustache on Yoshi and she was pretty upset, she threw the blindfold at Sierra when Sierra laughed about it.  photo 043eresized_zps69602f3f.jpg photo 048eresized_zps56342a94.jpg photo 054eresized_zps41c3ccfe.jpg photo 060eresized_zps7c8dc1f2.jpg photo 067eresized_zps3fe55bca.jpg photo 068eresized_zpsf4cf0703.jpg

I bought a bunch of cheap party games at WalMart. I had a prize basket and the kids had a blast playing the games. One of the games was this alligator and his nose is up in the air and the kids had to toss rings onto his nose. After the games grandpa and Sierra were copying the alligator’s “snooty” expression. They came into the kitchen as I was setting up lunch and said, “Do we look snooty?” And I laughed and then followed them into the playroom to get a picture! Today looking through these pictures the kids like these of grandpa and Sierra the best. They laugh every time they see them.

Brooklyn thought it was funny and wanted a picture, too.  photo 077eresized_zps35b8a06b.jpg

I took Payson outside for one minute to snap some pictures of him. He let me take three and then ran back toward the house.

Then it was time for cake. Payson actually picked out cheesecake and a chocolate cream pie. lol. I scraped off the crust on his pieces. I had my camera ready to record while we sang to him and he blew out his candles. It was adorable, his reaction to the cake and him making a wish (for a puppy) and blowing out the candles. And then I went to turn my camera off and realized I hadn’t recorded any of it. Sad.  photo 115eresized_zpsd11d0cd4.jpg
I think it was a good birthday. Payson thinks it was the best birthday ever. And I can believe I’ve had this boy for 5 years but still can’t believe he’s five years old. If that makes any sense. haha
