It's been awhile, it must be the winter doldrums setting in because not much is going on around her worth blogging about. Yesterday Ace's party brought some much needed excitement to the house. For 2 hours on a Saturday afternoon, our house was transformed to Camelot, with knights, ladies, and dragons all here to celebrate a very special little guys Fourth birthday. There was bubble jousting, daring swordfights (Four year olds vs. Stuffed dragons, the four year olds emerged victorious), treasure hunting, and of course, one incident of mooning. Don't think knights didn't moon each other in the days of Camelot, because they so did.
I think everyone had a great time, I know I did. My mom did a lot of the planning, decorating, and cooking. Basically, I filled bowls with cheez doodles and chex mix and called it done. My mom made sword cookies (yes, sword cookies look exactly like penises and yes, we all commented on them repeatedly) and stuck one in the cake (the inspiration for the theme party was Ace's love of Sword and the Stone) and the kids thought that was awesome. Besides the "bubble joust", we also had a bean bag toss into a cardboard and aluminum foil castle, the treasure hunt for a chest of Hershey's nuggets and gummy bears, and crafts like decorating crowns and coloring pages. The girls enjoyed the party too. Hayley had a few friends here age here, Lucy spent most of the time in our neighbor's arms and our 12 year old neighbor spent much of the party catering to Julia's every whim and keeping her snack plate full. Good times!
Tonight the party weekend rolled along as we had a special dinner and Grandma and Grandpa's and a Boston Cream Pie for dessert. Yum!
Happy Birthday Sweet Baby Ace, we love you!
