3rd Birthday Party

This has been an incredibly tiring weekend! We spent the whole time preparing for Aaron's birthday party on Sunday afternoon. The party itself was tiring with 14 kids running around. And of course, there was the clean up.....

We tried to get all the kids standing still and smiling for a decent photo but this is the best there was. The photo is also missing 3 little kids that arrived 2 seconds after they all dispersed from this. I'm a little disappointed I didn't think to take another photo of all of them later on. (Not that I would have been able to round them all up again....they were running all over the place)



Richard planned for 8 games but it was extremely hard to get all the kids, all different ages co-operating. We ended up playing just 3 or 4 and handing all the prizes out the easy way.



I think the kids managed to have a good time but I really couldn't tell about the grown ups. There were about 14 of them too and our house really got very hot with the extra 30 people in it. Hopefully they had an OK time too because we're more than thrilled that they all joined us.

Rounding up kids at a party falls into the same catagory as herding cats.

We took notes on this for Leya's second birthday party, coming up in just a few weeks. And it at least looks like SOME of the children are listening to Richard!

I love having parties for kids.. They would really love it even how simple it is.. For them, that moment will be unforgettable..
Celebrating it is very important because it is one way of thanking God in giving us another colorful year.

Happy Birthday!!
