The box contained some silicone crown and robot cupcake molds (which are totally awesome, but we didn't use them for our party yesterday since I already had Pen's birthday cake planned out. I can't wait to bake Edith's one-year-old cake in one, though!) and some lunch bugs (not a typo) that the kids loved freaking their friends out with as they ate lunch at school today.
We used the other two items in the box to have a grand time. They really gave us a good laugh. I'm still laughing, in fact, every time I look at the pictures.
These cups were a hoot:
But I think the best part was the mustaches. Everyone was so excited to put them on, although for some what seemed fun in theory was actually a bit shocking in the application.
We quickly recycled the gray mustache and slapped it on Rophone. Don't he and Edith look smashing?
I know this next picture is blurry, but I just love the way they are looking at each other.
Look at the proud papa.
Everyone else was happy with their look, too.
I got tired of the bad indoor lighting, so we headed outside for the family shots. By this time, Big had decided that maybe wearing a mustache might be fun after all. He reclaimed his gray mustache and joined in the party. I was so glad.
And I just love how comfortable Edith was in her 'stache. She seemed awfully pleased with it.
I have to admit, it does make her look terribly distinguished.
After I took the family photo, I realized that I should have had a neighbor come and take a few pictures so I could be in it. Missed opportunity for a perfect Christmas card shot. See?
After I took the pictures, I quickly donned my mustache so I could have some fun, too. Putting it on without the aid of a mirror was difficult, so I asked the family if I had it on okay. They said it was great.
Rophone and I had to pose for a shot together, too. I hope our children forever remember us like this and that they don't have any nightmares from it. I'll start a therapy fund just in case.
Thanks for the fun party, cousins! We needed it!
