Wordless Wednesday - Absentee Birthday Party

We recently moved half way across the country from our families.

My family got together to celebrate Monkey's birthday party anyway with cake and balloons.

Here they are, minus sister-in-law who took the picture.
My grandmother, my dad, my mom, my niece, my nephew and my brother.


The fabulous miss J and BAM! at Monkey's NB absentee b-day party.


And here's a group shot with sister-in-law, but minus my Dad.


Thanks guys! Monkey loved the pictures and, especially, the video of Miss J and BAM! singing happy birthday.

That is really sweet of your family to do that. Although it's also a little sad! I hope your move went well and that everyone is adjusting!

Love that! Love it, love it, love it!!!! We moved halfway across the country from our family too. What a great idea. I also love your profile pic. You're adorable, I will be back!

What a great idea! I may start having this sort of party to help my little girl prepare for the video greetings we always send. It has nothing to do with my love of cake, of course.

That is a great idea! We just moved as well, from AL to CA. My family is in Houston but the hubs has family here.

Today is my sis' b-day, maybe I'll take a party hat photo & send it over. I think she'd enjoy it.

Oh how thoughtful!

Andrea said...

How fun for them to still celebrate! Any excuse for cake, right?

Tena said...

What a sweet idea!!!
I don't need any reason to eat cake, so I think I might start doing this, just so it doesn't look so bad when I eat cake 5 out of the 7 days a week...opps!
Happy WW

That's so nice that they celebrated from far away! Hopefully they mailed gifts and didn't just send pictures of those too!
