So, it starts out with 2 kids being born not only in the same month but the same week...2 days apart! I couldn't have done that if I tried...and believe me, I did not try! As these children get older they begin to want separate parties for their birthdays (understandable since they are different gender and one likes girly things and one---thankfully---does not like girly things).
This year Lindsay asked for a slumber party and being the
...and the dog slept on .
The next morning while I was making the girls waffles for breakfast (which were judged as "great" even though I forgot the eggs! Oops!!) I started decorating Jared's cake! Yep, still in the midst of one party and was already working on the next one! Jared had the choice of going somewhere and taking one or two friends (Gattitown-a Chuck E Cheese for bigger kids, Funtrackers-go karts, video games and mini golf were some of his choices) but he chose to have an old fashioned party at home so he could invite more of his friends. I think that is such a nice choice. So we did a baseball themed party. With a baseball pinata and everything! Thing is, the kid does not understand keeping things within the theme. HE would not have hot dogs!? He says "mom, they make me sick" LOL, can't really argue that one--it's debatable that they are even food! ;) So, we had pizza for the second time in two days! All turned out great though and the kids loved everything and said how much fun they had...I think they both said "That was my best birthday ever"! That's all a mom wants....a little appreciation! :)
