One Last Celebration

Ok I promise this is the last birthday post! Friday night we had a final party with our families. Since we did his big party with just friends we wanted to have a small get together with family so they could celebrate as well. Friday was a really stormy day around here. There were tornadoes about 20 miles away (including one very close to Matt's parents house). Schools got out early and it was a little crazy but the party went on! Everyone was able to make it and had a great time.

Ben requested that we have pepper hot dogs for dinner. They are his favorite so we just did those and some simple sides! He was super excited to dig into his gifts!
He got some awesome stuff including a pair of Toms shoes, books, a remote control helicopter, Star Wars Legos, some games and a basketball goal. A great variety of fun things!

Ben wanted everyone to play Disney Scene It so we divided up teams and played. Some not a proficient Disney people did not do as well! : )
One last round of Happy Birthday was sung!
Uncle Andrew and Ben could not wait to get into the Lego sets so they started working right away!
Kate thoroughly enjoyed her cupcake!
Then it was time for the traditional birthday pictures with the family. Everyone got a little silly this year!
It was a great way to finish celebrating our 5 year old!!!
