Mr. George is now 7 years old!
His birthday was on a Friday so we had a mini-celebration before school.
He opened a few gifts. Can you tell which gift was his favorite?
I thought this picture was so cute too!
We pulled George and Teddy out of school early that day and took them to the zoo with Nonnie and Papa. I think they like the playground as much as the animals!
The next day we had a monster themed party at an indoor, glow-in-the-dark mini golf place. The decor was creepy cool and we had a party room that looked like something out of a haunted house.
George invited all the boys in his class. One of them was determinded to hold the now famous Caroline. She LOVED it as you can clearly see. This is the same little friend who, upon realizing I was having a hard time getting all the boys' attention (shocking, right? 6 and 7 year olds? Not getting their attention?) loudly yelled, "Everyone please listen to the beautiful mother!" He will be my favorite of the friends for like, ever.
During the party I told the kids that I tried drawing a picture of George and not to laugh. Then I unveiled my poster and we played Pin the Tooth on the Monster.
Opening presents - always complete chaos!
My monster cake. You can hire me. Or not. Probably not.
These boys are hilarious when they're together. Isn't it funny seeing your kids in their element? They are so polite too. It always takes a few "Mrs. Acklin" references before realizing it's me they're talking to and not Kevin's mom! When I was their age I never got into the habit of saying the Mr. So and So or Mrs. So and So. Instead I just never spoke to adults! I probably had Lesley do it for me. Seriously.
Then they all played a round of golf together and I sat and watched with Caroline and mom and dad . . . realizing . . . when I go home I won't have to clean anything up . . . ah . . .
