The first dragon party post was all about the party details...
This one is all about the people :)
One very special little person, mostly.
Here's the birthday boy, on the day before the party.
His "Didda" (aka grandad) was coming to take him to the John Deere dealership. Yes....that, to Toby, is quite a big deal. As you can see, he immediately had to find his John Deere hat, and matching green sweater, as well as his "dirty" jeans ("Just like Didda....cause he's a farmer, mamma") ;) Oh, and of course, we can't forget the work boots (yes, he has a pair).
So, off he went, pleased as punch, for some special pre-birthday "Didda" time, while I got to get the party preparations done!
And what a fun party it was! Here's the lucky birthday boy opening pressies!
He has already played with each and ever single one. He said before he went to sleep last night..."I just love my friends" :)
The dragon cake took a few hours to make, and about 3 minutes to destroy ;) Little Finny was chanting "Cake....cake.....I wanna cake....i wanna cake"
The whole room went very quiet very quickly, though. Important business, cake eating ;)
The dragon's egg hunt was pretty fun too! It was honestly hard to tell which dragon was which....since they all looked the same! Running around, filling their little bags with chocolate eggs.
I got a kick out of little Fenton (Toby and Finn's cousin) because he was the most realistic dragon...crawling around on all fours :), with his little tail dragging behind him.
And little Hannah....she came prepared! Cutest little dragon ever!
Josie and Molly were the two little princesses at the party. Toby's favourite girls :)
And here's the birthday boy himself....doing a quick "tail check" ;)
Josie was so cute here....she was sharing her eggs with Tobes!
Meanwhile....little Finny was happily hanging out on the trampoline....little did I know, he was munching down chocolate eggs, tin foil wrapper and all. Well, he managed to get *some* of the wrapper off... his egg-hunting bag was left in the wind...
Two little men, munching on their marshmallow dragons
Uncle Fraser, Auntie Dayna and little Fenton arrived at the party with a very exciting, very crazy gift for Tobes....and, as you can see....it was a hit!!!
And not only that....they also got him this "huge HUGE big boy bike" (Toby's words). And big-boy BMX gloves to match.
What a very very lucky boy!
Auntie Shannon arrived at the party, and was greeted with big hugs from Finn :)
Didda made it to the party as well....just in time for some cake :) Toby was SO excited!!
And he even brought his new John Deere lawn mower, on a trailer behind his truck.....which the boys were VERY excited about sitting on!
Here's Gavin and Cole....Toby and Finny's special buddies :) I can just picture them all when they're older....wreaking havoc, and giving their momma's heart attacks and the like.
Toby's cousin Fenton is his "favourite baby" :) As he puts it. He said tonight that "Fenton is so cute, mom. I think he loves me the most because he thinks I'm so funny"
I'm pretty sure it's true :)
Here's Finn....Toby's little sidekick :) And "best friend in the whole world".
Green icing face and all ;)
Shan, Me and Dayna.....a sister shot :)
I love how birthdays bring everyone together :)
Thanks for coming, everyone!
Our little Toby boy had the best birthday ever thanks to you all!
