The Big Birthday Party!

Last year Ace had a big birthday party because it was, well,  his 1st birthday. 😀

This year was not an exception.  His party had quite a good turn out!

Last year there wasn’t really a theme, other then “Blue for Boy”.  This year the theme was “Fire Trucks“! 

Even though the themes of the two parties were not the same there seemed to be some similarities…

What will next years birthday party bring?  😀

Welcome To The Club, Beoch!

So….I am officially no longer a twenty something.  While I am sad about some aspects (young and dumb is no longer an excuse), I am happy about others (older is wiser).

I’ve heard people say that 30 was the hardest birthday for them, but it really did not affect me that much.  Yeah, I thought about it for a bit.  And then I remember thinking that 30 was O-L-D.  Man was I wrong…. 😀

I still feel pretty young, and I guess that is what is important.  Someone once said, “You are only as old as you feel.”  In that case…I’m 25.  Not 21, because I can’t handle the all nighters and the day after the party, but 25 because…I don’t feel 30.  😀  (That made absolutely no sense whatsoever, did it?)

So because Momma is the coolest wife and Mom in the world, she threw her brother and I a Halloween/Birthday party.  Three birds with one stone…

Her brother’s birthday was on the 25th, mine on the 26th, and then of course Halloween.  So we had a costume party with beer, birthday cakes, and ah-hem….adult entertainment.

So what better way to leave your twenties than with a party.  Food, friends, drinks, and nakie dancers.  😀  Kind of a kiss goodbye to the past decade that has hopefully treated you well.  We partied it up last Saturday night.  After the party we went to the club and danced and drank until the lights came on.  We had a blast!

Sunday morning was far from a party.  I spent most of the day in bed recovering with a hang-over from hell.  It was like a slap in the face from my newly discovered thirties…  “Welcome to the club, beoch! (SLAP!!)”

Just thought I would leave you witha  quick pic of me and Momma in our costumes…Dog The Bounty Hunter and his wife Beth.  😀

(Special thanks goes out to Momma for planning such a wonderful party, Grandma S for helping Momma get everything together, Grandpa H and Grandma O for supplying the food, our neighbor Billie for watching Ace, Ace’s uncles Brandon, Mike, and Charlie for providing drinking and dancer money, all of our friends that drove from afar (especially Angie who came all the way from SC), and our friends Amber and Amy for taking so many good pictures!  God knows I was too intoxicated to operate a camera… 😀  )

Happy Birthday Momma!

Momma turns 28 today!
( Hope I don’t get in trouble for revealing her age. 😀 )

I’ve been out of town all week for work and expect to get home tonight to celebrate her birthday.  I missed Momma’s Birthday last year.  So, just incase I get stuck out of town again I wanted to tell her Happy Birthday face-to-face…or as close as I can get to face-to-face.  😀

So without further ado…

Happy Birthday To You!

Happy Blog Birthday To Me!

Things have been nuts lately…going here, going there, doing this, doing that.  Life has been far from boring…let me tell ya!

I’ve been so consumed by daily life that I forgot to celebrate DadThing.com’s one year birthday on September 1st!  I’m such a bad webmaster/blogger. 😀

In celebrating the one year birthday here at DadThing.com I wanted to take a stroll down memory lane and share some of the highlights of year number 1…

Ace’s 1st Birthday Party

happy-birthday-sign

Ace’s birthday party was a success! Utilizing one of those clown car miracles, we managed to fit everyone into my in-laws house and amazingly no one was trampled or lost in the chaos…

In-laws, out-laws, and everyone in between were in attendance for what seemed to be the biggest event of the year thus far!

Grandpa S Celebrating!

The pre-show started with Momma running around town picking up the cake and last minute necessities, while Grandma finished cleaning and getting the food ready. I was on kid-duty and fulfilled Ace’s every want and need as if he was a rock-star before the big concert.

Most rock-stars live on the edge and so does mine. During pre-show warm up Ace was practicing his “lets see how fast I can walk” routine. As you all know, walking is a new part of his show and thus he is fairly inexperienced. But the trick is a big crowd pleaser so he insists that it be the highlight of the night! Anyways, during a routine practice something went astray. Balance was lost. Feet got crossed. And Ace took a header into one of the door jams scarring up his baby like face before the show.

He wasn’t concerned because it gave him a more “tough guy” kinda look. A good PR opportunity at that!

The show started with the ritual pass-the-baby game where poor Ace was tossed around like a cooked spud in a game of Hot Potato only to be returned to Momma or myself when a tear was in sight or an odor was sensed propogating from his lower region.

The second part of the show was the gift opening ceremony where every one in attendance paid their respects by giving something of value to the little celebrity. Ace sat on my lap as I opened a multitude of gifts resulting in a very big score of clothes, toys, gift cards, and money. He was happy and ready to move on to the finale!

After all of the crowd surfing and gift opening, Ace was placed into his throne and the crowd gathered around. The lights were turned down and Momma brought in the flaming candle as the crowd rejoiced by singing Happy Birthday! The candle was blown out and Ace enjoyed his Panda Bear crush cake! (skillfully crafted by his Grandma GG).

Everyone in attendance celebrated by eating a piece of the cake and some ice cream before making their way to the door.

The big event went fairly smoothly with no major incedents or injuries. Special thanks goes out to everyone that attended, everyone who was kind enough to bring a gift, Momma for the great event planning, Grandma and Grandpa S for hosting the party, GG for making the crush cake, and Hilliard Cake Creations for the awesome looking and tasting birthday cake!
