    Looks like a pretty successful birthday party!

    I have to say, that's a very blond area you live in.

    That looks like a fabulous party! Silas's invite must have gotten lost in the mail 😉

    My only suggestion is to wear slippers for the foreseeable future. I predict lots of late night steppin on little lego pieces that break the skin.

    that Lego cake rules everything ever

    For some reason that cake makes me think of cow udders.

    Yeah, I dunno where my brain is this morning.

    But yeah, udders.

    I think it's cool that the Lego person on the invitation talks like a pirate. The Lego cake, which is brilliant, reminds me of an upside down frosted cow. The party looks totally awesome from my perspective, and I can only say that I wish I had been there too. I always used to think Mrs. Abe Lincoln was a little dowdy, but from here on in I think she's the best party thrower ever.

    Crap, just realized Jazz said the same thing about the cake.

    Leggo my piece of cake!

    Happy birthday to your birthday boy!

    Love the Lego cake! When #2 son was about 9 he had a similar Lego-themed party, except that I confined my Lego-creating talents to the invitations and the cake. You guys did a great job!

    That looks and sounds like an awesome birthday party. I love theme parties for kids–and parties at home as well.

    Many happy returns to Paco! Looks like you hosted a great bash–that cake is cool. I could never have done that.

  11. Becky Cazares says:

    Having just HALF a grandma go missing would have been oh so much worse (or more interesting, perhaps?). Looks like a fun party. Happy birthday, Paco!

  12. heartinsanfrancisco says:

    Hate to spoil the fun but that cake looks like a bunch of breasts at least as much as legos. Perhaps those of a prodigiously-endowed mammal like a dog or cat.

    Happy birthday to Paco!

  13. Vic says:

    There are a lot of sickos here disparaging your cake! I, for one, saw a Lego piece, and that is all.

    My favorite thing is the serving tunnel. Sheer genius.

    Legos are da bomb

    Awesome Lego cake–awesome party!

    Way back when -almost in the dark ages my kids insist I sprang to life from -but not quite that far back in time, for my older daughter's 8th birthday, we had a party, with about 10 other kids of her age range and the big excitement of that party was the cake. It was in the shape of a two-wheel bicycle that she received that year. Since then, no big birthday parties have taken place as I think I can still hear the ruckus those kids stirred up within our house that day!

    Now, as to that cake, I'm glad you clarified early on what it represented because by the lower picture of it, at a quick glance, it kind of looks like it is boobies -yes, you read that right -but in two sets that are in triplicate.

    I swear I've only been drinking black coffee here tonight! Just had bunches and bunches of blog posts to get my reader all cleared out and perhaps I am now truly cross-eyed but not from the embroidery.

    If Mandy ever decides she wants to have a themed birthday party though for either of the grandkids here, I'm gonna refer her to you for suggestions.

    How good are you getting Lego for everyone! My last experiece was fulfilling the parents request to get this as a birthday gift for their boy. The birthday boy threw it at us and yelled "I've got this!!"Judging by the speed of the missile I think friend's son will grow up to be a great baseball pitcher.We should have bought him a mitt! You being the beautiful considerate people you are, I hope the benevolant Lego fairy,(who must be speechless with the beauty and ingenuity of your cake) blesses you and your boy for years to come.Groomeo is one of those kind dads I used to marvel at as a child. They still stand out in my mind.Bet Paco had the best time ever!

  18. monica says:

    happy birthday Paco!! I'm sure he knows where Lego actually comes from! All Danish ya know :o)

  19. Pearl says:

    I laughed out loud at the "severed head" remark.


    You're a funny woman.


  20. Patois says:

    I'm glad Jazz owned up to the udder image. I had the same thought.

    However, that won't stop me from making one when mine turns 8 in April. Brilliant ideas, all around.

  21. choochoo says:

    You sure do know how to party. Maybe I'll have a lego-cake the next time I get it into my head that I'm going to entertain.

  22. Michelle Wells Grant says:

    Now THAT'S what I call a kid's birthday party! Happy Birthday, Paco! How does one get on your guest list?

  23. Karen MEG says:

    I'm mightily impressed with that Lego cake!

    Happy belated BD to your 7 year old – 7 is a very fun age…especially for a boy!

  24. Midlife Jobhunter says:

    Happy Birthday, Paco!

    You have no idea how impressed I am with a winter pinata.

    And the Lego cake? Well, I had to look. At first I thought it was a cake with a lot of boobs. Sorry husband of the O Mighty Crisis. Ga lant effort.

  25. lime says:
