Decorations by brothers, pizza and cupcakes by dad, games by mom. This family KNOWS how to party! J3 is called a little monkey because he’s always been a climber, so that was the theme. J1 made a monkey with a banana to sit at the table.Some pre-school friends came and played downstairs while dad got the pizza and cupcakes. After lunch was gift opening and then cupcakes! I love how involved the whole family is in celebrating the birthday person! J1 and J2 helped mom put in the candles and birthday banner, AND they did the decorating!The day was perfect to go outside to the waiting piñata filled with candy. All of the kids got a few chances to whack it before it fell off the rope and was finished off by dad. Then the candy rush began!What is YOUR favorite birthday tradition – one growing up or a current one?
