February (yes, always behind) is when the birthday craze begins at our house.  3/4 of my children have their birthdays within 4 days of each other, and my husband gets the raw end of the stick (is that a phrase?  raw end of the deal?  short end of the stick? whatever), having his birthday 4 days after that when I'm already birthday-ed out.

If you're not on facebook and you missed my most successful cupcakes ever, no worries, I'll repeat :)

I was super excited that something I made actually turned out as cute as the one ones I was trying to imitate, and about died laughing when my niece sent me back this picture she had seen after looking at mine:

Wow are you really giving me both of these??

The perfect excited face when opening the talking Cookie Monster toy.

Then the twins got Angry Birds festivities. First there was the festivities in pre-school.  A few games like "Do You Love Your Neighbor?"

Angry Birds ring toss:

 I'll admit, I sort of shove my kids in the direction of a birthday party I feel like throwing.  And there happened to be an Angry Birds costume on clearance and so I thought, hey, human pinata.  Sounds perfect.  Until I told Ryan it was him.  And that he was going to get whacked with a pool noodle.  As the furrowed brows deepened and the why-do-I-always-get-stuck-with-this-stuff look became more intense, the response came that simply put - you plan the parties, you get to assign roles.  Enough said.

And now, sadly, February parties will not be in sunny Florida! But they will still be great, I'm sure!
What fun! Great photos!

Fun! The cupcakes were adorable and I love your husband's reaction to being the human pinata. The kids will remember that for years to come.
