Yesterday was Tim's birthday party. It was a long day. Actually it was a long start to the weekend. After school on Friday we went to see Britt's new house. Boy does she have some unpacking ahead of her. I came home so tired and was in bed early. No Saturday post for me.
I woke up tired! Poor Tim is really feeling under the weather (me too, but not as badly as he is). He spent all of Friday night and Saturday with a runny nose and dry throat. I'm not sure it if is allergies or a cold. It seems like everyone is going through the same thing. I know more people with symptoms than I do without!
Anyway, we managed to get through his birthday party. Since his birthday is usually the first couple of days of school, I plan his party for about two to three weeks after so he gets a chance to meet his classmates and invite them to a party. I have always had his parties at home, but the older the boys get the harder it is to entertain them (and save my house!). We opted for a local bowling alley.
Tim picked out this Indiana Jones cake. While traveling to the bowling alley the ball rolled off the cake and on to his name. All that was left was the M. :)
Most of his gifts were star wars related. He loves Star Wars. I listen to him talk to his friends about it and it sounds like they are speaking a foreign language!! This is Tim giving the "YES" to one of his gifts. (Obviously his friends have faces but I don't have permission to post them!)
After the boy bowled for about half an hour or so they were given tokens to go into the game room. The "birthday" child gets to go into this chamber and catch as many tickets as they can. Tim got 2005! He ended up with quite a few tickets by the end of the party and was running out of things to trade them for. He ended up with some toy guns (not my favorite kind of toy...I held off on allowing them for as long as I could!). He also got a bag full of dinosaur skeletons. Last night he was covering them with clay to make the dinosaur as it originally look. Maybe forensic science is in his future!
It's over for another year!
