Last Saturday (2/5/11) we threw my dad a 50th birthday party. It was so nice that all of his brothers and sisters came. I know that meant the world to him. We don't see much of eachother except on holidays, so I cherish these times we get together.
My dad told me that it turned out better than he ever expected, which made me feel good. We had a nice spread of food and he even got a bunch of awesome gifts! Thank you to everyone who came and made sides. It was great seeing you all and the food was delicious! Happy 50th Birthday Dad! We love you!

Does the party have to end?
The favor bags I made for the party. I was trying to come up with something funny. My dad's nickname is Boo, because he cried a lot when he was a kid and diapers are also a gift people give at milestone b-days, so I thought I'd use diapers. I called them The Boo Bag haha.
They are diapers filled with different chocolate bars. All I did was hot glue the diapers together, added a handle by punching two holes in the back and tying a knot then added the labels on the front. They thought it was funny.
