A Little Boy's Birthday.....Ezra Turns Seven

Ezra turned seven the other day and all the kids expect their table to be decorated when they come in from school on their birthdays. Ezra is all boy with a passion for frogs, bearded dragons, bugs and balls. So I filled the tables with bugs and frogs.

I needed something to hang from the ceiling to add some pizzaz and I found these shiny green strip things at the Dollar Store. I hung bugs at the end of them and told the kids they were fly strips. They looked pretty cool in person. They don't show up very good on film though.

This is a mini back pack on the back of the chair. Ezra had it off of there in no time and filled it with all the bugs he could find.

This is Ezra and green jell-o with candy frogs in it. I stuck his number 7 candle in it and served it as his cake.

I bought this vase a few years back at an artsy store downtown. I thought it was really cool and knew it would come in handy some day. It sits outside on my patio table during the summer.

This is dirt pudding. I could have easily eaten the whole bucket. It's just chocolate pudding mixed with whip creme and crushed Oreos. There were gummy worms in it too but I steered around those. It was heaven. My kind of supper.

I didn't work too hard on the candy bar as you can tell. There was only so much time and I had to scrape the cupcakes off of each other after I got to my niece's house. I forgot to drive slow and take the corners easy on the way over and lost half the cupcakes.

Give a kid a can of silly string and they are happy for a few minutes until it's gone.

Ezra's wondering how he's going to carry all of his loot home.
