elmo party picture overload

since there are so many pics from parker's party, i'll try to keep the words brief...
decorations...found these juice boxees at walmart the day of his party!
the cookies.  love them!!
mom and scott.  parker's biggest friends!
elmo balloon...still parading around in our house
elmo elmo everywhere!
the cake.  i was kind of impressed with myself at how well it turned out!  my neighbors were super sweet and helped make the icing and decorate it with me the morning of the party.
my awesome friend amy brought over her bounce house for the kids to play in.  it was the hit of the day!!!
every kid's dad came to the party (which meant there were a few more people than i was expecting but the more the merrier) and they all hung outside with the boys because it was 75 degrees!  so perfect.
red fruit, yummy.
james organized the pinata fun and decided the pull strings were boring so we let every kid have a swing at it!
the girls/moms (they made all the pregos stand in the back)  3 of us are due in the next two months!  it was nice to be able to hangout with them inside while the dads watched the kids.
james and parker on their motorized scooter.  they love to ride this thing around the neighborhood!
and last but not least, the kiddos in their elmo shirts!  excuse my super sloppy edit...i just downloaded a free trial of lightroom and am playing around with it.
as much fun as everything was, it is nice to have elmo behind us.  mommy is soooo sick of elmo (and now we have like 15 new elmo toys and it is all my fault).  next year we're doing a sports or jayhawk theme, ha! :)  love yall.
