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.kandihamble.com-Jacob5Bday-2Some 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!kandihamble.com-Jacob5Bday-3The day was perfect to go outside to the waiting piñata filled with candy.

Then the candy rush began!kandihamble.com-Jacob5Bday-4What is YOUR favorite birthday tradition – one growing up or a current one?
