Allen's Super 7th Birthday

Allen turned 7 this last week and had a super awesome Super Mario themed party. Good times were had by all.
At the party all the boys got mustaches in there bags.

Yes all the boys wore them.

But I would say that Carter wore it best. He really looked like a guy from the 70's.

The kids did a Yoshi egg and spoon race. It was super cute.

The table all set up for the party.

Allen's super awesome Super Mario cake.

I'm proud of this cake. I think it turned out pretty cool.

The Mario head I made.

Bob-omb and a red shell.

Goomba and some super stars.

Mario, but now with a body.

Allen wanted the scene from the game put on his cake.

Opening presents with his friends. They were so funny.

On Allen's real birthday there was school so he took some 1 up cupcakes for his class.

Allen got a special one with a crown. I think he had a pretty great birthday this year.

Super Valentine

We had a great Valentine's Day yesterday. We went with a superhero theme this year. The boys loved it and Carter called them super boys. Allen had to take a mail box to school for his valentines this year. Since we did superhero valentines, he wanted a mail box to match. So, we ended up with a pretty cool super Allen mail box. It was fun making it together. When he took it to school and everyone liked it you could see how proud he was of himself. When I got back from taking the kids to school, Kevin had made a trail of valentines around the house that had funny pick up lines on them. And when I got to the end there was a bouquet of red roses waiting for me. It was very thoughtful and nice. Also later that day my best friend Amelia had sent flowers for me. So, I got double the love this year. We finished off the day with some red heart shaped pancakes for dinner. It was as SUPER fun Valentine's Day.

Allen's superhero mail box floating in mid air like a true superhero.

The super slot for his valentines to go in.

I was up making these all night and in my delirium I could not resist making this silly video.

These are the valentines and roses that Kevin got me.

My beautiful ? flowers I got from Amelia.
