Photos from yesterday's party


The main birthday cake--there were five cakes in total, and they all got devoured



Some hors d'oeuvres with 4 of the 5 cakes in the background



Me and my wonderful partner



Michael & Greg



Steve & Jeff



A terribly flattering shot of Jase



One of the wonderful ladies Marc hired to help with the party--they really did a great job!



Tom & Jeff



Michael, as inspired by a scene from Jaws



Various relatives and friends getting food in the kitchen



Michael again, this time with cake--how does he keep getting in these photos, anyhow? There were lots of other people! Just a camera hog, I guess!



Jase, another one who keeps throwing himself in front of the camera! :)



Patrick & Michael re-installing the pink flamingoes on the lawn. When we had our housewarming party last year, they bought these and stuck them on the lawn. Yesterday, they searched the house until they found them (in the furnace room) and then put them back out front. One of our neighbors was seen with a stunned look on his face! :)



The most wonderful man in the world



Patrick & John



And again



What was left of the five cakes. Even with 40 people here, I'm amazed they ate so much cake.



My younger brother and his youngest son (who just reached one year of age). Like his shirt?



Dodger taking a break outside



And Miss Mandy



Mandy keeping John company--yes, she thinks she's a lap dog. She's just a huge lap dog! :)


I hope the photos were enjoyable. The party sure was! I had a great time! Thanks to everyone who made the day special!

Said pink flamingoes were found discarded and unloved in the furnace room, indeed. Poor, poor animals.

(Was a lovely party, by the way!)

Happy belated birthday, hot stuff!

Greg said...

Great pictures! It looks as though everyone had a great time. My question about the pink flamingoes....why did they find them in the furnace room instead of in the furnace?

Jess said...

Thanks, everyone. I wish you all could have made it! The welcome mat's always out, kids, even when it's not my birthday! :)

Will: thanks for the kind words! I'm glad we're not too hard to look at just yet!

Andy: Yeah, isn't it great?

PatCHy: I'm glad you liked the party! Now give it a rest--be glad the birds were still here! ;)

Greg: a good point, although they'd probably foul the inside of the furnace!
