Tate’s party

February 17, 2012

We invited the boys in Tate’s class as school to a birthday party at a local indoor playground.

We had about 10 come.

The boys got to play for about half an hour before food was served.  We had pepperoni and cheese pizza.  OK, not horrible, which is a pleasant surprise.  We had presents and cake.

Next, the kids got to go out and play.  It was fun for them.

We also had to deal with Reid, as well as with the other kids running around.  It’s a bit of a challenge watching a two year old, when there are several dozen kids, up to the age of twelve running around.

Still, he had fun.  And, we were tired when we were done.

I expect 10 boys went to bed very easily tonight, and likely sleep in tomorrow.

And thankfully, a couple of parents offered to watch Reid for a few minutes so we could supervise the whole pack.  That was an added bonus. 🙂

It is hard to believe that Tate will be six.  Where has the time gone?

Birthday parties

February 13, 2012

On Saturday, we had a birthday party for the boys with both of our families.

Since their birthdays are within in month, we thought it might be easier to have everyone together once, rather than having everyone in twice within a month.

This seemed like an especially good idea, as we have been busy and struggling with sickness since Christmas.

We had planned on February 11, and were working toward that.  We were getting ready last week, when I was feeling close to my worst.

Things went well, all things considered.

We served lasagna, which was a hit.  Some of the kids can be picky eaters, but everyone ate pretty well.

The boys got some good gifts that will be useful for them

This Friday, we are having a party for Tate with kids from school at a local indoor play centre. It will be busy, but but.  It will be an adventure to have approximately 10 four to six year old boys running around for a couple of hours.

5th birthday

February 20, 2011

Today we celebrated Tate’s 5th birthday. It us hard to believe how much has happened in the last five years.

He truly is a blessing, even though at times it seems challenging.
