Archer's 2nd Birthday: A Photo Essay

We celebrated Archer's birthday Saturday night. Here we are looking celebratory:



Hal was in charge of decorations so it wasn't surprising when I came home to a pile of "caterpillar" balloons:



Which became "caterpillar decorations"...




I made due and with the help of my mother, decorated my parent's house with large phallic objects:





Fortunately (or unfortunately) no one noticed. Probably because they were far too busy breastfeeding:


Or posing for portraits by the pool:


Archer wore his finest imported chaussures for the occasion from Pareeee...


The youngest guests arrived with yellow-shirted escorts:


And oh how we danced...

...if i had the chance I'd ask the world to dance but I'm a dancing with my el-elf... oh whoawhawhoa!

And made cake (out of the box):


And made a wish!


Actually, I made a wish because Archer's still too young BUT I did make a wish on his behalf and it had to do with dragons. Anyway...


He ate a lot of cake:


And even had left-overs:


Received gifts...


...And headlocks:


Sadly Archer got very little attention:


And none from me, either:


JK! I ate him all up.


Delicious.

funny AND informative- I always thought the words were: "if i had the chance i'd ask NO ONE to dance..." Do you think that means something? ~jjibra

Looks like great fun! (And who doesn't have fun with penis balloons?) And cake from a box always tastes so good! With frosting from a can? Mmmm, yum.

Happy Birthday Archer!

you know what's great? when you eat them all up and then they're still there, all ready to be munched on again.

happy birthday, sweet little Archer-man.
