Luau Time

As you've probably gathered from my lack of posts, this blogger has been a little lazy and lax about posting. I wish I could say I had some fabulous excuse for my laziness, but the truth is I've just been enjoying summer with the kiddos.


But alas, I am FINALLY getting around to posting about Kyle's party.




We had such a wonderful time! Almost 100 of our nearest and dearest joined us for a luau.


The kids seemed to have a blast and really got into the theme.




The adults seemed to get into the island spirit as well. My Mom won the prize for best tropical dressed:




Of course I'm only teasing! Just trying to provoke a comment from my loving Mother, since she still reads the blog but has not commented since forever.

Anyways, back to the Luau. We had barely finished with the Limbo when the torrential downpours started.



So we had to "sail" inside:


Okay, that was a very poor attempt at a joke. But, I just loved this picture of Kyle and needed an excuse to post it.


Once inside, we sang "Happy Due Date" to Kyle and let him dig into his smash cake. For someone that refuses to eat most days, he certainly enjoyed his cake:






As always, Joe was looking HAWT:



And I owe a HUGE thanks to Kyle's Godparents, Terry and Leanne.





I was so busy playing hostess during the party, I did not have time to take any pictures. They surprised us with all these wonderful photos of the party.


I especially like these two of Kyle and Madison:







Despite the rain, it really was a wonderful party and the perfect way to celebrate all that has happened over the past year.

Themed parties are so fun.

Its good to take a little blog-break once in a while. And the party looks great! I'm with Angie...WAS that a real pig head? I was thinking maybe it was the cake at first....that would have been pretty cool.

Jennifer,

You're lucky that I have a sense of humor. I did look pretty good if I must say so myself. I guess that will teach me not to skip out on any of your parties.

Life is so tough when you have a Daughter-In-Law who's blonde!!!!!

Your Loving Mother-In-Law, Pattie
