Anthony's birthday party

Our favorite boy turned seven in early December!

The night of Anthony's birthday was pretty low-key. I made a small cake, he decorated it with some sprinkles, and it was just the three of us. Apparently, though, Larry and I are awful "Happy Birthday" singers, because Anthony plugged his ears and giggled!

The following weekend, though, Anthony had a really fun birthday party. Maw maw came up from Houston to visit! It was also the first time, since he was a toddler, that we had the party at our house. We decided that, instead of inviting his guests for him, we'd let him choose who to invite. That made things a little easier.

It was a nice, intimate party. We decorated the house with some balloons and streamers, made some cupcakes, opened presents, and then played that classic game of pin the tail on the donkey. Of course, all of the kids, except for one, figured out how to cheat and look through the gaps in the mask, so it was really silly.

At the end of the day, everyone was full of sugar and happy, especially the birthday boy. :)
