saturday was big c's birthday party. i had 10 middle-schoolers here, including his girl friend. it has been cold so i was worried they were all going to be in the house the whole time. thank goodness we hit 50. pretty much from the time everyone arrived they stayed outside and skateboarded. i had 8 boys going up and down that quarter-pipe all afternoon. the 2 girls just sat and giggled at the boys. i called them in for cake and presents and they were back out the door again. some of the parents stayed and there were some siblings and grandma's so i think there were about 22 people. 4 of the boys stayed to spend the night. i made them come in about 7:30 to eat some pizza then they were back out again!! at 9:00 i told them they had to come in and get showers because i was taking them all to church the next morning. they hung out and watched some football (sorry about the steelers drew!) and then got into their sleeping bags to watch a movie. napoleon dynamite. :) they were up until midnight!! then up again at 7 to eat some eggs and go back out and skate until church. big c is still exhausted! but there were no injuries and really it was one of the best parties he has ever had. super fun!

Happy Belated Birthday, Big C

Sounds like a good time was had by all. I'll bet you are exhausted, too, Kay.

I have an award on my blog for you to pick up at your convenience.

Have a good week.

You survived! Yippee! Sounds like everything a boy could want for his birthday. Especially having his girl to watch him skate. WTG Mom!
