ELVIS IS ALIVE, and he turned 5!

Without further ado...the wild and crazy and wonderfully entertaining Luke McGee! For Luke's 5th Birthday he wanted a show that was all about himself as Elvis. Trust me when I say this kid can rock! Throw on your bobby socks and tie back that hair turning 5 is an experience all it's own. 

Luke's invite had a little flair and a lot of ginger.
Luke's glowing Elvis sign was made from a recycled TV box, spray paint and some old Christmas lights. Voila! Instant fame.
The party spread moved indoors after a slight rain delay, but all worked out fine.
Gold framed glasses adorned with sideburns 
'Graceland' cupcakes made by Katelyn Schloesser. Chocolate, peanut butter and banana of course. 

We do love a good theme.
and sometimes take it to extremes.
Ava looking down right b-boppin'.
Old mic with some sparkling and delicious treats.
Luke with his Elvis face on.
Let the festivities begin!
Treats and noisemakers for all.
Followed by some light entertainment.
and more treats.
Did I mention strawberry floats with whip cream and a cherry?
Next comes the song and dance.
What Elvis show would be complete without a wailing girl? I know a little too authentic right?
Grandpa Darrell showing the kids how to wear their shades.
Little Elvis with his perma-grin.
Sideburns run in the family.
What party would be complete without a pinata?
Thank you all, thank you very much.

Happy Easter Keester

There is nothing quite like a bunch of bunnies having a bird eating, juice drinking good time at their Easter party. The cousins gathered for a party and egg gathering good time.

All the bunnies are assembled for a feast of bird nests and juice.

No bunny ever loved apple juice sooo much.
I like to call her funny bunny. Ava dug right into that delicious bird nest.
Some lip smacking chocolate and butterscotch nests for all the little peeps.

This little bunny is more worried about where his next apple juice is gonna come from.
Eggs, eggs, eggs and apple juice.
Wild bunny!
After all the candy and eggs the kids were fit to be tied:)
