Happy Birthday Zach!
I haven't blogged in a while - so this post is actually pretty belated...we have had sickness after sickness in our family this past month, so I haven't had the time or the energy to blog...As a result, I now have several blogs to catch up on - this one being the first!
Zach's 8th birthday was on January 31st...the day before the Super Bowl. We decided to celebrate with a Super Bowl themed party the next day - he thought it was a cool idea, so we went with it!
On his actual birthday, he opened most of his presents from us - he got a lion webkinz and a leapfrog crammer...the next day we gave him a cool Star Wars game for his gameboy.
In the afternoon, we took the kids to Chuck-E-Cheese, they had a blast - we had headaches! Saturdays at Chuck-E-Cheese are an absolute nightmare, but we survived and they had fun - so that is what matters, right?
On Sunday, we had turkey sandwiches, 7 layer bean dip, fruit salad, chips and dip, and a football shaped cupcake cake. The guys watched the game while the kids played and us girls played Clue at the table.
It was a fun alternative to a traditional birthday party! Zach got a new wizard book from Grandma and Grandpa, an iron man from Uncle David, and army guys with a jeep from Aunt Karen and Uncle Adam. It was a fun night!
In a few months (we are waiting for warmer weather and for me to feel a bit better) Zach will be baptized...it is amazing and very strange that we have an 8 year old already!
