Birthdays Abound[ed]

Dan's birthday was April 8th and Indigo's was the 11th.  Dan had the first party, of course, and none of my pictures turned out except for this:

Let's just say Gus wasn't so crazy about the party hat.

And this [albeit grainy] photo of the birthday boy:

If my pictures would have turned out, it would have looked like a joyous occasion.  Thus the difference between the blog-world and reality.  Here's the reality.  Indigo was crying because she kept insisting it was HER birthday.  Also noticed how Jude's shirt is on backwards AND inside out.  And try to ignore my dorky singing.  Oh, and I apologize for the poor quality of this video.  I tried several times to get it into higher quality, but it just wasn't working for me.

Fast forward three days and Indi got to have her party.


  1. LOL!!!!

    This was so good....isn't it the truth on how parties with kids usually go;-)??

    I loved your hubby's comment about 'extra spit on top'

    Just think how special it will be to watch this video years down the road...priceless.

    I'm still laughing!

    Happy Birthday!!!!!

  2. AW MAN! That was freakin' hilarious!LOL!
    I had to watch it twice.
    Tell Dan he is not suppose to tell his WISH!
    ....extra spit!
    That's just great.

    So I'm thinkin' you send send Bocelli this video..just incase he is looking for someone to sing a duet with during his next trip to S.A.....think about it.



  3. Funniest video I've seen in a long time! I love it.

  4. lol....well, with kiddos you just never know what your going to get! :) At least its never a dull moment!

    LOVE the Gus shot....what a good sport and Happy birthday to Indi and Dan!!
    I can't believe your sweet girl is 2!!

    Happy weekend!

  5. The dog looks thrilled. hahahaha

  6. Oh my gosh-that was hilarious! So my Graham boy-one minute happy, the other screaming crying! Oh, the joys of birthdays.
    We want them to be so perfect and you know what-i figured there is no such thing . . . actually perfection is laughing, crying, singing and the whole sha-bang at a birthday party!

  7. Oh my gosh, so cute! I love the picture of Gus and the video is perfect...the kids will love it in 12 years! :) What a cute little birthday girl, so funny she was yelling because it wasn't her birthday!

  8. Oh I am LOL! extra spit? love it! We have 2 April birthdays in this house. They are coming next week. I can't wait to go catch up with you family, but FIRST I think I may just have to go watch the video again!!!

  9. p.s. Was Indi just waving her arms or was she telling you "all done" with sign language? Either way I'm crackin' up! WeeBeth always uses the "all done" sign for anytime she is ' all done' with a situation, activity or all done with the person who is talking to her. So, I just had to ask! : )

  10. shannon,
    no, that's just what indi does sometimes when she gets frustrated. jude, however, was big into signing "all done". it was adorable!

  11. funny video! indi was hilarious! i am so glad that M is not the only one who thinks the world revolves around him! why is it so funny when it is someone else's kid???

    gus....can gus please come to my birthday party this year???????

    i think that is a great pic of dan...he is one handsome dude!
