Happy Birthday, G4!

Today is G4's 8th birthday.

I went to his party on Saturday.

It was a "red-neck" themed party.

There were games like red-neck golf (this is G3 taking his turn), sunflower seed spitting contest and hubcap throwing (similar to frisbee).

Son made a red velvet "road kill possum" cake and there were red-neck mouths (apple lips, peanut butter gums and mini marshmallow teeth), RC Cola and mini Moon Pies.

Notice there were only 7 candles on the cake. The lighter provided the 8th "candle."

All of G4's gifts came wrapped in plastic or brown paper sacks. Except for the one from Daughter's family and AD's and mine. The gift from Daughter's family was actually in a plastic sack to begin with but I wrapped it.

Silly me, I wasn't thinking about the theme of the party and I actually wrapped his gifts. In my defense though I did use red paper.

It was a fun party and I'm glad I got to go.

Happy Birthday, G4! Have a great day.


  1. Great! The only thing missing was a mud pit! Happy Birthday, young man!

  2. What an awesome theme for a little boys times for family and friends!

    I had girls so the parties usually included, flowers, barbies, dress-up, and make-overs!

    Take care ~Natalie

  3. Oh what a great idea!!
    My husband's birthday will be in a few months and I'm gonna have to get the planning in motion.
    He will love this!

  5. Wow...looks like G4 hit the jackpot!!! What a fun kind of party! I personally love Hillbilly golf. Two years ago, I had one made for all three of my adult sons. I'm sure you can buy them now!
