Hyrum is 5

Hyrum turned 5 on the 7th. We had a party at the house. We live in a neighborhood with a lot of little kids. We handed out 8 invitations and had 19 kids come. I told the parents that siblings who wanted to come could. I loved it. I used to not like throwing birthday parties because they are so much work but the last couple of years I have realized that I don't have to try to impress anyone and kids are going to have fun no matter what I do. So we play a couple of dumb games, open presents, and eat cake. I don't do a theme, I don't spend very much money, and the kids love it. It is a blast and very stress free.
The night before we make a cake of the kids choosing. This is supposed to be a "Little Einsteins" rocket ship. I figure the worse the cake turns out the funner it is to remember it. :)

It was cold but most of the kids ate outside anyway.
Ah the party is over and the sibling fights over the gifts has begun. Happy Birthday Hyrum. We love you!!!!!

I think the cake is cute. If my kids think they're getting some fancy cake they're going to be horribly disappointed. ;)

yeah, I quit on the fancy cakes unless I'm in the mood....and the parties. My poor deprived children.
