Not a brilliant photo, but if a picture could paint a thousand words this one would be one of yelling, screaming, fighting and running around like lunatics. But, at the end of the day when it’s time to leave each other, it’s time for a big group hug.
Friends since they were tiddlers, these three boys got together to celebrate my Little Man’s 8th Birthday.
This year, the deal was NO birthday parties and I’m not sure it sunk in with anyone. Boo agreed but asked if her friend could come around for tea, so I agreed and when Graham went to pick her up another little friend who lived in the same street asked to come as well. He couldn’t refuse, so we had two friends for tea. I made pizzas and sausage rolls, crisps, biscuits and birthday cake.
Ditto the Little Man, no party just a friend around for tea, but he wanted two friends, and one of his friends brought his two sisters (who were friends of my two girls.) Never has a ‘not having a party’ looked more like a party before. I did forget to make the jelly though, and we didn’t have party games or activities, I just let them run wild. Really wild.
I also said that I was not going to be making cakes this year. So Boo said ‘Ok, I’ll make my own.’ And she did. She also helped me make a cake for the Little Man. He chose a Minecraft cake and wanted me to do a picture of a villager. It was nowhere near as good as his previous Minecraft cakes, but that didn’t matter.
From 27th July to 24th August it’s Birthday month in our house. All three of my Little ones have birthdays within 4 weeks of each other.
Next up it’s Star’s birthday. She doesn’t do parties anyway, so no worries there. Instead we’ll be singing Happy Birthday in car on the motorway on the way home from our holiday. A little error on my behalf, but she doesn’t mind. She’s made me promise to stop off at Burger King on the way home. How can I refuse. That sounds like a party I can handle.
What a lovely photo of the three boys! It sounds like the ‘non-parties’ have been pretty successful. And stopping off at Burger King sounds like the most manageable birthday ever!
That is such a lovely photo of the boys – they look so joyful. It sounds like they had a great time x
A lovely photo and moment to capture. We’ve had a few Minecraft cakes in this house.
Hope you have a good Sunday and thank you for linking up to #MySundayPhoto
Happy Birthday young man – hope they stay the best of friends
Hi Anne, the photo of the boys looks perfect to me, 3 young boys without a care in the world. Birthday tea sounds so much nicer than a birthday party. I don’t miss them one bit. Boo is quite a little cake decorator. Now I know nothing about Mine Craft, but this angry house cake (my interpretation) looks just right for a little boy… Have a fab holiday away and I want to hear you singing from over here.
Love that top photo, a moment to treasure. Fab cake, hours of work!
That is a such a sweet photo of the boys and well done with the cake! It’s fab!
Aww that is such a sweet and touching moment captured. I love the cake, that is brilliant xx
That’s a good friend hug! I do like the Minecraft cake. It takes some patience to cut out all those squares.
