Birthday fun

We had a great party yesterday for Seth. I thought it'd be nice to have a little party for him and invite some of his friends over. Well, since I can't seem to add things together we had quite the gathering. When the kids are only 2 ish the moms have to stay! I think we had about 20 people but it went well. I am always amazed at how much work goes into a birhtday party and quickly they are over. That is my main reason for always trying for low key events. No need for a clown or a bouncy castle. Things are crazy enough with a house full of people!

Once the party wound down I had to bake some cookies for our schools basket raffle that evening. (No rest... ever!) I got to the school at 6 to be a volunteer. I was put at the door and man was it busy. After my 45 minute shift at the door I was able to walk around and see what baskets there were. I had a good time even though I didn't win a darn thing. Oh well, all the money raised last night goes to fund field trips for the school and this is our only big fund raising event we do.

After clean up was over I ended up getting home about 10. A long day but fun.

Can you believe he's two already?! You guys left Seattle when Simon was two and we didn't see you again until he was six. We can't wait until Seth's six before we see each other again, ya know... :-)
