Happy Birthday Gabriel, and just to be sure he is right. In birthday candle speak 1+7= 17....

Not The Mama

Oh what a sweet post. What an awesome little man. And I think his party sounds fabulous. Who really needs a theme beyond "fun"?

A wonderful tribute to your wonderful year old.

Oops, there was supposed to be an "8" in there.


Funny! Great minds think alike (and great kids are alike?).

Happy Birthday, Gabriel. The party sounds wicked good.

Happy Birthday Gabriel!!!!


Sounds like my kind of party! Happy Birthday Gabriel!


What lucky kiddos to have a mom that can capture everything about them so effortlessly.
He sounds like a wonderful little man.

His party sounds not unlike Luke's 5 yo party...except we had a pirate theme some cheapo swords for them to potentially whack eachother with as they ran around the yard.

I love lazy mom parties! They are the best!


What an awesome tribute to an awesome kid!



I am all about the lazy mom party! We did something similar for Ryan's birthday this year.

Happy Birthday Gabriel! You sound like an awesome kid.


what a cutie -- happy birthday!!


Happy Birthday Gabriel! I love multi-grain Cheerios too.


Happy birthday Gabriel and mom!


Was his day on the 24th? Or the 20th? Those were our most recent b-days! The party for the newly 6yo will be a jumper-cake and mayhem will ensue. My 7 turns 8 next month, more mayhem to follow...

Happy 8 to Gabriel!


He sounds a lot like my 8 year-old -- the only boy in a crowded house full of girls -- Happy Birthday, Gabriel!


Happy Birthday, Dizzy! Many Years!


Happy Birthday Gabriel! What a cutie you are!

Happy, happy birthday! Have you gotten him a copy of the Dangerous Book for Boys? He'd eat it up (no allergens, don't worry).


Happy Birthday Gabriel! Sounds like you had a blast.

I wonder how you would market a "fun" theme. I think that is my favorite so far!


Love the picture! Totally Dizzy Gillespie.


Love the theme! I do the same thing. Happy Birthday, Gabriel! He is so cute.
