Birthday Party

Well, Peter's party was tonight and I think it was a success. I am still in the midst of cleaning up after all the fun, I think I am putting it off. :) It really is not that bad, thanks to paper plates and cups (I know, not very "green" minded of me.) Thank you to those of you who came to relish in the noise and food. We missed not having those of you far from us. I do not know if you missed having the chaos, but honestly; the more the merrier I say. The food was good (tacos, fruit and veggies). The horse cake turned out looking good and tasting good. And for not having a fridge, it was not too much of a problem.
And the presents were a definite hit! Peter finally understood what a present was and that you actually rip the paper off to see what it is. He loved the giant green ball, his dump truck with blocks, his cowboy hat, the dinosaur toy and right now he is sleeping with his soft kitty. Thank you again for all your love and for making Peter and Caleb happy. Oh and to think, he only took one bite of cake tonight. Maybe next year I try a different birthday treat for Peter. He does not seem like a cake kid to me. :) Oh, and if you want pictures; talk to Grandpa Gray. Rob used the video camera and Grandpa did the stills. :) Thank you, Ed.

Happy birthday, Peter! We sure wish we could've been there. Maybe one of these years we'll be 'round more often.

Yes Jon, one of these years your kids can partake in all of the madness, fun and chaos together. :) And you can wonder if there is any need for other entertainment besides swords, stairs to slide down on and running feet. Good times by all. Sometimes I wonder if I should plan other activities for the get-togethers, then when it comes time for the party and there is so much noise I remember that there is only so much time for "fun." Who can orgainize a game when everyone is helter-skelter around the house? Love you guys and miss you!
