For his birthday we threw him a Pirate birthday party. Oh he has been looking forward to it for forever. He was sooo excited. It was supposed to be at a park, but since the day ended up being rainey and windy, we decided last minute to have it at our apartment.
The party was great, at least I thought so anyway. The kids all played for awhile and then we had them paint treasure chests that we had found at a craft store. After the painting they played for a little longer and then it was cake and present time!
We had all the kids sit on the floor for the cake and presents, and while I brought the cake out, we sang to Carter. The funny part was that Carter had no idea we were singing to him and that I was bringing out a cake, so for half of the song, everyone was pointing at me and trying to get him to turn around. He finally did and then he got all excited and hopped up to look at his cake.
With the help of all his little friends, he was able to get his candles blown out. :) Carter then opened up his gifts from his friends and then we had cake! He was pretty spoiled. He got another pirate boat, a book and game, candy, transformers, cars, and a kite. He is love with each and every toy. So did his friends. :) They hurried and ate their cake and then ran off to play some more. I might add that halfway through eating his cake, Carter decided to ditch the fork and eat the cake on his belly with no hands. Yeah, he totally just dug in. His friends thought that was great and joined in later too. Man my floor was sticky. It was pretty funny though, watching them basically act like dogs as they licked up their plates.
So Carter had a great day. Donuts for breakfast, presents from us, noodles (he loves noodles) for lunch, a party, and then panini's and candy for dinner. Who could ask for more?
I might add that Carter's party consisted of 3 boys, not including him, and one girl. Carter does have other friends that are girls, unfortunately all are now gone because of the hurricane. Not dead gone, just moved. ha.
Even Elmo is participating in the birthday extravaganza.
Carter's presents from Mom and Dad that he opened earlier.
Brampton and Cardston. Cardston is the one sporting the eye patch! Yo ho ho.
The boys gathered around for the present opening. Kerry (sp?), the one girl, is up on a chair with her mom. I think the boys kind of intimidated her.
