a mustache party...

 **April 22,2013 - Links have been updated!!  ENJOY**
Warning: Picture overload for today's post.
Last Sunday we finally celebrated Mike's birthday (it was 2/11), our family is WAY too busy these days!  I am happy we all had a Sunday available to party it up!!  I decided on a mustache theme, since I have been seeing lots of stache items on Pinterest. I also wanted to find some games for us to play, and I was happily surprised to find some online.

First we started with lunch, which consisted of pulled pork sandwiches, coleslaw and iced tea (some of Mike's fav's).

Then we played a couple of games...
First up, was pin the mustache on Burt Reynolds.  You can get the download HERE.  I was pleasantly surprised that everyone was excited to participate (we are a pretty competitive bunch).

We had to trace the mustaches and remove them because some people were  "feelers".

Then we had some Birthday pie (since Mike is a "pie guy" recipe HERE, and yes I bought a pre-made graham cracker crust~don't judge!!!), and then opened presents.
*and if you notice I have no curtains hanging up in my family room, it is because Mike is using them as a prop for his current series at church. I get them back next week, LOL!!

Of course I set up a picture station for us to model our "staches"  and I had to laugh at some of the outtakes!!  Mustaches printouts HERE (I just taped them to skewers).

We started off with a normal pose.

Then we thought we could use the mustaches for eyebrows (apparently Jess and I didn't get the memo).

Then we said lets put the mustaches all on Mike, since it is his birthday (Ashley and Nate didn't get the memo).

I see Kodi didn't have a stache. I wonder if he was thinking "these silly people."
