We had so much fun and laughter at the birthday party for our two sons celebrating 40 and 42!
The Pokemon Choo Choo Train Cake. Our son Dan has had choo choo train cakes starting at his 3rd birthday. He didn’t get one every year but was always happy when they appeared on his day.
Our daughter-in-law put together an epic Pokemon themed party for the brothers while we were in Arizona.
These oreos decorated like Poke Balls were used for one of our games.
Poke Ball themed veggie and fruit trays.
We all got to choose the ears we wanted to adorn our heads with. Jamie made all of them. The different ears have names but I’m clueless.
We were all good sports and entered into all the party games! Not to brag but I won two of the games, move the oreo from your forehead to your mouth without dropping it or using your hands and a poke launch game.
Granny Great and Jim traveled from their snowbird location in Arizona (close to the border with California) to join in on the fun. They live in Colville from March through most of November and then travel down to Arizona for the late fall and winter months.
We tried to reenact this photo from Dan’s 10th birthday party. Once I get my hands on the original photo from 1991, I’ll add it here.
It was an epic day celebrating our sons and hats off to our daughter-in-law who planned and stealthily managed to create and transport all the goodies to Arizona from Washington.
We ended the party with a swim and some of us kept our ears on.
For my records we enjoyed this birthday celebration on Saturday January 16th, 2021.
Back to the present, we are looking at getting some good snow this week starting on Sunday evening. Time will tell if the predictions are correct. They are talking about an accumulation of 13 inches this week.

Oh what pokemon fun!! Great party planning and creativity.
Love how much fun your family has together. Great example that everyone participates in these joyous times together.
Thank you everyone for visiting here and your kind comments! I appreciate each one!
Looks like fun Ellen, but It amazes me that your Covid Bubble is so large and nobody is masked.
Sallie, we’ve all been together regularly since May of last year with no masks and no ill effects. We wear masks when we are outside of our bubble.
