(That's right, plural)
Tyler's birthday was on September 25th and we celebrated his birth with two parties, one with friends and one with family.
The theme for the friend party was batman; we had a batman cake, batman game, and batman pinata. After that party ended we started preparing for the family party that started a few hours later.
Here is the cake I made..
The batman game. I spent every evening for an entire week cutting out these bat wings for the game. We taped 3 on every back and then the children ran around grabbing them off each other. The child with the most wings won.
The Balloon game. Every child had a balloon tied to their ankle then ran around trying to pop each others balloons while trying to protect their own. The child with the only un-popped balloon won.
Hulla-hoop contest. Object: try to last longer than Tyler... who is a master hulla-hooper.
Present time! Tyler would NOT stop wiggling his loose tooth while opening presents. This shot shows him in action. Moments later the darn thing finally came out!
This is the only picture I got of the pinata fun. I was to busy trying to protect the kids from getting too close to the swinging bat. For some reason they just kept inching towards it even while in full swing!
Here's the party gang! (or most of them at least)

For the family party I put Deke in charge of making the cake.
Mr. Krabs from Sponge Bob! I think Deke did an excellent job!
This was the gift Tyler got from his friend/sister Lexi. She had gathered all of Tyler's favorite things... money, rocks, and ice cream. I thought it was sweet.
