Our youngest son, Jeff is turning 35 on Monday. But with Monday being a "back to work day" we thought we'd celebrate it tonight.
Did you ever do that when your kids were little? Have their birthday party on the closest Saturday to the actual date?
They were always wondering how their birthday always fell on the weekend..how lucky was that??
This year, I thought I put out some fun older photos of Jeff..so the neighbors could see what he was like when he was little.
We had my fun dip with fresh strawberries, Brats (bratwurst) and Beans..chips, dips, salad and of course ..the "Jeff's Favorite" birthday cake..
This is Oliver - the chicken-charmer..
Me & Mr. B..
Brooks & Jenny (our darling next door neighbors and Mom and Dad to Braham and Oliver)
This is what happens when you give a little boy a digital camera and say.."You can take a few photos." "Oliver..Self-Portrait"
We didn't get candles, but Jenny remembered she has one each from the boys' past birthdays..when Braham was 5 and Oliver was 3 - Perfect!
Kinda goes along with the card Braxton & Lulu got Jeff..
This is Braham..the one who specializes in the "Chicken Dance"..
Smile for the camera! And to think, all they had was root beer..
Yes, his party theme was Elmo and the Sesame characters...hay, it's about all the Dollar Store had besides Strawberry Cupcake..
The "boys" go the special fun-foam hats...
Happy Birthday banner..oh and some great old plates and dish drainer I got thrifting today..
The happy couple - married 2 years this coming September..
I love leaving Scrabble messages..
..and of course my platter messages..
More "Early Jeff" on the fridge..
Braxton waited oh-so patiently for someone, anyone to drop a brat, or a hot dog or just about anything else..
Well, that was our fun, rainy, exciting Saturday on Main Street, USA..
Happy Birthday Jeff, we Love you tonzzzz!
Dad & yo Mamma
