Tyler's family birthday party!

I am kinda ashamed to say that Tyler had 3 birthday parties this year. I know, he's WAY too spoiled but I guess that's what happens when he has so much family. The first party was with his friends, the second was with his dad and family, and the third was with my family. Here are the pictures of our family party :)
Tyler shaved for the occasion

I tried something new this year and made GIGANTIC cupcakes, I thought they turned out pretty cute.
I made homemade pizza for dinner, YUM!


He really wanted to put his face in the cake.

Tyler's First Soccer Game!

Tyler hated going to his practices so I was convinced this was going to be a HUGE waste of money. However, once he started playing his games he started to love the sport! He played so well and made 3 goals that day. Hallelujah its not going to be a waste of money after all!

Tyler's 6th birthday party - September 5, 2009

We had Tyler's birthday party several weeks early this year so it would still be hot enough to have a swim party. His actual birthday is on September 25th but we celebrated it with his friends on September 5th. Tyler picked out an "Army" theme and aside from swimming we had a pinata, squirt guns, water balloons, and a slip n' slide. About 10 kids showed up which is more than I expected for it being a holiday weekend.

Deke spent quite a bit of time filling up water balloons and the kids went through them in minutes.
Here are the kids enjoying the slip n' slide

I don't know why Tyler tries to look evil in pictures...he does a good job at it though lol..

I had other plans for this cake however, cake mixes now come with pudding in them so it was really hard to decorate a cake that was SO moist. It was very frustrating.
Tyler opening his presents...he got some good stuff, Tyler and Deke were both excited.

Deke had hot dog duty. Here he is "watching" the hot dogs...yep, they burned.
