Last Friday night we went to Z's house for his first birthday. The theme was Yo! Gabba! Gabba!, and Z's mom Cindy MADE a bunch of hats and balloons that were awesome. In fact, they were so awesome it made me JEALOUS of her skill. Mental note: Eat Cindy's brain to gain her skills! Here's Cindy and Amy wearing DJ Lance hats:
Here's the Plex "head" she made:
And here are the balloons (they all ended up on the ceiling).
Mark and I were selected to attempt a photo with all the kids wearing the hats, but the attempt failed miserably cause Z started crying, which made all the kids start crying. I looked damn good though.
The Grunion was having trouble with the concept of a birthday party where HE didn't get any presents.
GRUNION: So, what are we supposed to do? Just sit here and watch Z get stuff?
GRUNION: Forget that! I'm going over there to see if I can scam something!
GRUNION: Z! How bout slidin some presents my way?
Z: Back off! I'm pretty sure one of these is the 14-inch Bowie knife I asked for!
MADELINE: You are such a crybaby Grunion! Waaa! I want some presents!
GRUNION: Who are you? And why are you pitchin me attitude?
MADELINE: Beat it kid! I'm workin this birthday for any leftover presents. Don't make me cut you.
GRUNION: I am Plex! It is my birthday too! Give me some of those presents!
Z: Lame. That's not even how Plex talks.
US: Happy birthday, dear Zack, happy birthday to you!
Z: Hmm. Seems like a waste of energy to bring the cake to my mouth.
Z: Much better.
GRUNION: How embarrassing. I would never make a cake-spectacle of myself like that.
