Final Birthday Post


So finally, we come to the end of the April Birthday Madness!

This cake was made by Bonnie, Aja's dear friend. It was so A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E. that I had to post 2 pictures of it!

She made cupcakes for the kids also...


Aja decided long ago that instead of giving her children actual birthday presents, she would instead give them a great party. If you remember, Stella had a "Princess" party with a  "real" princess who came and entertained the kids for an hour. It amazes me at how different these two little girls are...Alakina requested a "Critter" party this year. She had seen a display of a petting zoo of sorts at an expo last year and wanted them to come to her house for her birthday. So this is what she got:

a Tarantula *ugh*

A baby Aligator...

Ali was brought up to hold some sort of (really ugly) lizard...she wouldn't do it so Aja went up!
This is actually my daughter being a VERY good mother and a VERY good actress! She doesn't like animals of any kind let alone creepy reptiles...she put on a good face and it warmed up the kids to see her holding this creepy, really ugly lizard with a really long forked tongue...
The Tortoise was very well received...

But he lost me when he put the Scorpion in his mouth...(I'm STILL having nightmares about this!!)

He brought out a few snakes and finally this 15 ft Albino Boa Constrictor...

Natalie and her roommate Jessica embraced the new boa...(sorry, it's so blurry)

Even Alakina and a few of her friends braved the snake...

Tage wanted to keep the little guy..
Little Lucy was able to pet the Tortoise...

I'm sorry the pictures are so blurry...I actually didn't take any of them Aja lost hers and I think that she wasn't familiar with my camera.

Blurry pictures and all, it was a great party and Ali had a BLAST!!

WOw! That is one cool party! Love the idea of huge fun themed parties rather than gifts. Gifts may never last......but memories SURE do!! How cool is that. A gift of great memories for your child. Love it.
