A "sick" birthday...

So... we are sick. Like really sick. Coughing, sneezing, wheezing, dripping etc.
What fun is your birthday when you are sick! 
Well, three of the five of us are sick... Merrick, Me, and Tyson.

We tried our hardest to have the BEST 5th Birthday we could with three sickies in our house...
I think we succeeded!

Picture OVERLOAD!

Birthday Breakfast
(more DONE ITS! for my pinterest)

Heart Cinammon Rolls
and Heart Boiled Eggs...




Present Opening...

The kid needed new Toms, and he asked for them... how cute is he?

LEGO mania has started at our house. These girlie legos are SUPER cute. I would have played with them instead of the old BOY ones I played with when I was little!

Can't get over the $5 Easy Bake Oven I got from someone in the ward...
"Lightly" used...

We loved all our presents grandparents!! Thanks.
To the Grandparents that live by the Crocodiles: They have NOT stopped playing their Leap Pad games!
To the Grandparents that live by Disneyland: They are so excited to learn to "study" with their new writing desks. :)

Poor Berkleigh wasn't even sick, but we just weren't leaving the house... My dear friend Rachel, asked if Berkleigh could come over for a Princess Tea Party with Berkleigh's dear friend Tessa.
She was told to dress in her finery...
and finery she did.




While she was gone, Merrick was so sad he couldn't go, so we snuck off to McDonald's to eat a Happy Meal and play on the playscape.



Shh! But don't tell anyone on that playscape that we were sick.
(We were my own nightmare. hehe )

After Berkleigh came back, we made our Valentines for our friends...

"You BLOW me away, Valentine!"
With homemade party blowers (tutorial found here)
and a blow pop of course...


  Cutting the straws...

Folding the paper...

Rolling the paper...

 Filling the bag...

We skyped with our HB friends.
Oh how nice it was to talk to them. We skyped for well over an hour!
While skyping, in our jammies, Tyson came home and while he took the kids out to burn all the wrapping paper...

I made heart shaped pizza WITH heart shaped pepperoni.


And we finished off the night with a little Coldstone Ice Cream.
Peanut Butter Cup Perfection can cure any ailments...
