Last year we tried out the 1/2 birthday plan with Hayden and it worked out so well I think we are going to do it every year. Last Christmas season it was so nice to not have to worry about a birthday party on top of everything else.
First they all ate snacks then played this game where they have boxes tied to their backs and every one tries to put balls in eachother's boxes and the person with the least amount of balls wins.
Then they had some free play time on the playground/trampoline. Then we played bingo.
Hayden certainly has a lot to be thankful this year as he got money, toys, and app store gift cards.
Over all it went so well, everyone left happy. Including the Birthday boy.
Happy Birthday Hayden I can't believe in 6 months you are going to be in double digits.
You are so fun to have around, so smart, handsome, and sweet. We love you so much.
It was the perfect day for Santa's Village a couple of Saturday's ago. We really had such a great time. Riding the rides and finding the Els's with the Elfabet game.
Harper didn't quite know what to think but she was good the whole time until she finally passed out at about 4:00.
One of the favorite rides. It's a mini Tower of Terror type where it takes you to the top, only about 20 feet, and drops you and slings you back up again.
Reindeer! They were beautiful but this one had the most amazing rack I have ever seen.
Are you kidding me look how big my boys are getting. So bitter sweet.
Sometimes with 4 kids you set out to do something and it does not go as planned or they are just not as impressed as you thought it would be and it's a bit of a let down as a parent. Not this time. We had a perfect day and the kids were all so good and happy. I am so lucky.
Coy is the only one in white pants ready and waiting for the ball.
Harper enjoying the game.
Coy up to bat, he enjoys baseball but it's not his favorite. I'm not sure if he'll stick with it but it's fun for now. He looks so handsome out there in his uniform. Such a good little sport. We love him so much.
