Impromptu Party- Again

It is starting to get common around here, we wake up and decide, "oh, let's have a party today". My mom and one of my brothers (I have 5 remember) were in town for the weekend and my father-in-law and Big Buckaroo returned from hunting on our land. Since we were all in one place, we decided to throw a little birthday party together for Littlest Buckaroo.

Now, Littlest Buckaroo is a kid that does not ask for much, when at Walmart, it never occurs to him to ask me to buy him anything and he is always happy and content with whatever we or his brother pass down to him. Both of the Buckaroo's are December babies so their birthday's are overshadowed by Christmas sometimes. So, what do we do? Just have a birthday party whenever we want and celebrate (hey, he is only going to be 3 so he does not care if it is actually on his birthday, or in the same week, or well, even in the same month).

We popped some blueberry muffins in the oven and told him it was his special day!

Blowing out the candles was a very big deal.

Oh, and then there were the presents. Our Super Duper Muscleman Bucking Bull Cowboy wanted to be Superman when his brother was Spiderman the other day. He was very happy with his new outfit (I got it after Halloween for 10 cents, yes, 10 cents).

Kryptonite? Oh no, he just is responding to my cooking.

He has been practicing his Superman flying in the front of the grocery cart (yes, I am one of those moms whose kids stand up in the cart and sing the Superman theme song with their arms straight out in front of them) so he was ready when he got his new outfit on.
But then.......
Big Buckaroo decided that he was going to take Littlest Buckaroo to town and let him pick out something at the store. In his sweet little voice he said, "daddy, I already got my presents, why we going to the store?"

And, this is what he chose (I think he had a little help from his dad).

Of course you can not just get one set, so Little Buckaroo got a set too. The battery pack that has the hulk saying things like" you are making me angry" came out pretty quick (in an effort to avoid a nervous breakdown on my part).

Down for the count. He thought he was very funny, and well, I agree. I love this kid!
Now, time to plan for Little Buckaroo's birthday or we could just throw together another impromptu party...yep, that is probably what will happen.

10 cents!!!!

I love those hulk things, but we don't have them. We just play with them in the aisle at Wal-Mart. That is plenty of play time for us with those things. :)

Too funny! And I'm sure your kids love the spontaneity! That's one way to keep them from asking a million times when the party is going to be. *wink* You guys are doing such a great job with those boys!
