Today was the day Alaric had been waiting for- his party! With each year of this birthday party business, we get alittle smarter and a litter wiser on things. Only 10 friends. Drop off. Simple decorations, etc. This year, I included Alaric on some of the budgeting decisions as he is old enough to understand there is only so much money available for parties and I wanted him to decide what it should go for. He melted my heart when she said he didn't care about the napkins or stuff like that. Just that his friends were there and that mommy and daddy played WITH them, not just watched! DONE! Playing with our kids is easy- and FREE!
This ninja was ready!
As was his sister!
One thing we've learned from all our parties is to have stuff to do for "filler" so 10 crazy boys aren't running around constantly. Legos=perfect filler!
