Asher's Birthday Party

We had Asher's birthday party on Saturday. We planned a small guest list, letting Ash choose the invitees (he chose just the "big kids" (each of whom has a baby sibling) and cousins). Unfortunately, if you only have 6 kids and 3 babies coming to a party and one family gets sick removing 2 kids and a baby, that is a very small party. Of course, Asher being Asher small is fine with him although he was sad that Molly and Leah couldn't come.

For months Asher has said that he wanted his cake to be a portrait of himself which I think was a little daunting to Rachel. Then a few weeks ago he decided he wanted a trampoline cake and here it is:

Asher requested singing and cake early so we complied. I like Avelyn's bow. No really, it's a bow off a present.

Chiara apparently wanted to pose for pictures near the food (spanakopita, baba ganoush, hummus, pita, grapes, oranges, cheese, & crackers). Note how she's letting Joey hold her without screaming:

Ash opened presents and one of them was a fruit clock which Joey, Asher, and Owen got working.

It was a great party and we can't believe our little boy is five already.
