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
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.
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.
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.
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
