Birthdays

Party Fowl

“Me on my Sesame Street-themed second birthday in 1989 and my uncle was dressed as Big Bird. Unfortunately, the costume shop forgot the tights when he picked it up.”

Mistake Piggy

“This is my brother and sister Judy at one of their birthday parties in the early 80s. I don’t think my brother was aware of exactly what was behind him.”

The Birthday Balloon

Spider-Man: Very Far From Home

“We hired a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man for our son’s 3rd birthday party. It was the most awkward half hour of my life.”

Happy Day

“My Mom was so excited to take birthday pictures she wouldn’t let me find the closest bathroom first. But that takes a backseat to the fact I can only assume this was my 4th birthday party since the well-decorated ‘Happy Day’ cake wasn’t overly descriptive.”

“The cake we had planned to make for our sister’s 40th birthday party and the end result.”

5 + 2

“My 7th birthday – apparently, my mom couldn’t be bothered to find a ‘7’ candle for my cake, so she used the leftover ‘5’ and ‘2’ from my sister’s and brother’s cakes! It was so much fun doing math for my birthday.”

The Horn Cake

“It was my daughter’s 1st birthday and my mother in law made her a unicorn cake. My mother in law is so kind and sweet and amazing and has made her grandkids birthday cakes every year. This one was just….hard to know where to look….”
