Oldest celebrated his birthday last night. It's always fun when your party can land on the actual date, right? He had a pretty funtastic birthday, if I do say so myself. He had a live band. A friend of his has a band and he asked if they could play for his birthday...well of course.
Yah it was pretty darn loud. It was the highlight of the evening. I think they all felt pretty proud too when we realized some police were on their way, we suspect, to shut it down, even though it was barely 9 o'clock pm! They only played a few songs before they were done anyway. We had the fire pit going for awhile, it was chilly. And I made chili too. ;-)
I also made a pretty cool, although amateur cake, I must say. Oldest decided he wanted a 'robot' them and told everyone to wear a Tshirt with a robot on it. I thought I would make a robot cake. I thought I'd just make a generic robot using basic shapes but then decided last minute to just look up a Star Wars themed robot....it looked simple enough from the pix I found online. I baked a few cakes and cut basic shapes, rectangles, half circles and a rectangle.
We shut the night down with a little bit of Karaoke. He wanted his dad to do an improv show. DH was confused on the dates and was working. He planned on performing when he got home, w/ some friends, but it was just way too late by then and there were only a few people still here and we were huddled in the house keeping warm...but maybe next year. :-)
