We haven't had a birthday party for Zach since he was in K4 . . . I know . . . I know . . . I'm a bad mother! Here is Zach at his Backyardigans Birthday Party in his K4 classroom. He had just turned 5 years old.
In my defense, I've been busy having a baby, building a house, and staying sane.
Before I share Zach's birthday party fun with you, I feel the need to write about our first New Year's Eve in our new home. Last 4th of July, our sweet dear friends, Jason and Laycee Higginbotham, had our family over for dinner and fireworks, so we wanted to reciprocate with the same dinner and fireworks this New Year's Eve for them.
The next day was New Year's Day, and we had plans to eat our traditional New Year's Day lunch in Carrollton, Alabama, at Michelle and John's house. It was tough getting up and over there in time for lunch, but we had such a good time. I got up early and made cupcakes for Zach's birthday. Since we were all getting together, we decided to let him open up his birthday presents from Michelle and Nana and PawPaw at Michelle's house. I thought cupcakes would be fun for him.
Michelle's granddaughter, Taylor Grace, decorated the cupcakes for me.
After eating lunch, we surprised Zach with his birthday cupcakes. I say surprised because even though Taylor decorated the cupcakes out in the open, Zach and Alex never noticed the cupcakes. Wonder why?
Can you say Nintendo DS?
Zach turned 8 years old this year.
This is sweet Shane.
This is Ford.
This is Peyton.
This was the 1st of Zach's birthday celebrations. I'll continue to the party at school in one of my next posts.
Have a great Monday!
Tina and the Ferrel boyz.
