I’m a bit late getting this post up, but Henry’s birthday weekend was a blast as usual! His birthday landed smack-dab in the middle of hunting season this year, so we planned his hunting themed birthday party (a convenient coincidence on theme choice, yay!) to be held at the cabin and we invited the crew to join us up there for the second weekend of the hunting season.
We planned lunch, dinner, breakfast and lunch for 13 people where we had to bring all our own food and supplies in. I ordered cupcakes, and as I started panicking last minute about feeding so many people for so many meals, my mom and my mother-in-law came to the rescue, bringing up a fair part of the groceries for the weekend. It was a ton of work, but everyone agreed that it was one of the funnest family birthday parties, we’ve had. Henry even got to go hunting with his daddy and Uncle Randy. They saw two moose, but nothing they could shoot at, except an old can. Turns out, with Dad’s help, Henry’s a pretty good shot!
Also – the big gift this year, a violin rental and violin lessons. He’s been asking for more than a year (since we went to Nashville) to learn the fiddle. And he’s been practicing every day!
We spent Halloween with my sister, as is tradition for us, and she got cupcakes from Annie Cakes for Henry again. She makes the best (if you’re local: anniecakesandcookies.com). Henry was a pterodactyl, Emmett, a pirate, and Cora was a pea in the pod. I, of course, was their mummy.
