Nicolas' Seventh Birthday Party

In honor of Ground Hog Day,

we made Punxatawney Phil

cupcakes instead of a cake.

Max R., Shane and Cameron

playing Yu-Gi-Oh.




Nic, Shane and Max B.

Jasmine arrives and is ready to party!

Everyone gets front row seats

for Gerald, the Magician.





Gerald gets his first volunteer,


Next Shane helps out a little.

Max B. and Natalie.




This one was funny.  He

pulled a rope through his

body and accidentally took

his boxers with it!  I missed

that photo. 

From the time I booked the

Magician, Nicolas didn't want

to have anything to do with him. 

He said he wasn't going to like

him and neither was anyone else.

Magic wasn't his theme, blah,

blah, blah, blah.  After seeing

how much fun all the other

volunteers were having, he

finally volunteers.

I warned Gerald not to pick on

Nic and not to insist he help if

he didn't want to.  He turned

out to be a pretty good sport!




He got a lot of coins from

all over his body!


Max R. up to help.




Jasmine is more interested

in the balloons.

Emily and the card trick.




This one was bizarre!  No one

could figure out how he made

the table float.

We were trying to look

under it and everything!




I forgot to warn Gerald not

to pick on Daddy!  Daddy gets

the bunny ears.

Now Cameron gets the bunny


...and Daddy gets the tiara!

He was a good sport, too.




The King and the Bunny are

going to help a cute bunny



AAAHHHH!!  That bunny

isn't cute!




OK, let's try that again.

Maybe the PLUNGER hat

will do it!

Nic waves his magic fingers

over the hat...

...and a CUTE bunny appears!




The kids really enjoyed Gerald.

Here's his website with

contact info!





Daddy lights the candles.

Happy Birthday, cha-cha-cha!

George's side.  He was

in charge of the meat!
