Birthday Party in Review (and a card too!)

Marcel had a ball at his birthday party yesterday.  The firemen were fantastic and thankfully they didn't get called out during the party! (Can you imagine the fire alarm going off with about 12 little ones in the fire house? yikes...)

Started the party off with some pizza...
And of course some cake...the firemen ordered the cake for us...and made me laugh...they cut it all up before we could put candles in it and sing happy birthday.  No worries though...none of the children even mentioned it!
 A tour of the fire station...hey there big guy!
 The cousins:  Shelby, Kate and Ella...smiling out the fire engine window!
 Collin and Marcel hanging out in the fire engine!
The firemen showing the children the equipment and encouraging them to come up and touch they wouldn't be afraid of the firemen in the event they were ever caught in a fire.
 And one happy little guy as we all sang Happy Birthday to him!
 And the whole birthday party gang...a wonderful day!

And here's a fun card for my niece, Erin...perfect for the Just Us Girls challenge this week...and their puzzle!  Erin certainly ROCKS!  She is turning 10 and is a fantastic gymnast!  Happy 10th to our sweet Godchild!

This is fantastic, Lynn! Your colors are gorgeous and I love how you split the image between the three panels. I'm sure your niece will love it! My daughter is also a gymnast! What level is Erin? Such a passionate sport to these girls...they give it so much even though it can be so unforgiving!

Looks like Marcel had an awesome birthday party! Great idea to have it at the fire station ;]

Thanks so much for playing along with us on our one year anniversary at Just Us Girls!
