Ashton turned seven this year and we ended up have his birthday party on a very busy day. He wanted to have it at home this year even with my encouragement of doing it else where. So I tried to entertain ten 7 year olds for over 3 hours. We survived!!!
The original plan was to cut this cake and create a large broom. It cracked into at least 5 pieces so we switched to an alternative plan. Ashton got some harry potter legos so he built those and I created a grass field to place them on.
This reminded me of the days that I had to try to keep Ashton out of my cakes. Such a sweet look, just waiting for me to turn my back.
Activity 1, was making door hangers as they showed up.
We then ate lunch (pizza rolls) then had cake. Here are all of the kids with Ashton's face in the bottom of the picture under the cake. Look closely.
What to wish for????
They played a spin off of Fuse-ball in our spacious front yard. Collin got right in there.
Collin was that extra "Challenge" variable in the game.
This is what we took to school.
Sweet Ashton and his Mommy
This is Mrs. Clark, his 1st grade teacher who is from Australia.
Here he is the B-day hat they get to where all day. I got on video the class singing to him in English and Mandarin but I guess my video isn't compatible with blogger (it ends with .avi instead of .jpg or what ever video needs to be, if anyone knows how to help me please let me know)
We had Tacos for dinner and leftover cupcakes for his actually b-day. "He always tries to out eat dad when we have tacos. How many tacos have you had Dad?" He can't wait to get back to the US for Taco Bell, that's my boy. Gotta love taco bell.
