Whew, I can't keep up with anything these days. I don't want to overlook Arden by not posting about HIS birthday party, so here goes!
The Saturday after Charis's birthday party weekend we had some boys over to the house for Arden's party. I'm so thankful that he was an easy guy to plan for! I didn't even make invitations. Actually, I didn't even SEND invitations! I emailed a few moms and talked to one mom at church three days before the party!
Arden chose a Bakugan theme, a current obsession with the boys in our neighborhood. The boys who came brought their favorite Bakugan cards and figures, and they did their "brawling" in pairs all over the house. They did that for awhile, then we had Papa John's pizza, then they brawled some more, and then we had an ice cream cake from Ritter's, and then Arden opened presents, and they brawled some more and went home. Easiest. Party. EVER! Arden loved it, and so did all the boys!
Arden got a special birthday present from Daddy...Ted ordered an Avalanche jersey for him. We Skyped with Ted when Arden opened the package, and it was very fun for Ted to be able to hear and see the excitement!
