Soooo, I hosted our boys joint birthday party over the weekend. I made it from 2pm - 7pm. A good time to play, enough time to eat and open presents.... or so I thought...

During the party my husband said to me "I don't know why you made this 5 hours. The kids are going to get bored". I was totally annoyed with him and went outside where a lot of the other adult moms were (they know best!) and asked them if this was a longer than normal birthday party. They all said yes. To which I responded "WHY DIDN'T ANYONE TELL ME??? I WANTED TO HAVE A NAP HOURS AGO".

So, what is appropriate birthday party timing?

I'm not as crafty as some of you here but here's a couple of pics of some of my decorating, please excuse my lack of frosting skillz, I did mah best.
