Ethan had a birthday in December - I can't believe my little guy is 7 already. I wish I had the time to go through all of my old pictures of him and show how he has grown, but I will have to settle from pictures from the big day and maybe next year I will showcase his life (yeah, probably wishful thinking). Anyway, he had a fun day - I had a final that morning, but picked him up from school at lunch and took him out. I gave him a choice of anywhere in Cedar and guess where he chose - yup, McDonald's (because they had cool nerf toys). We had a party for him that weekend - it was a Pokemon/Bakugon party, we played BINGO and musical cards (instead of chairs, I enlarged pokemon cards for the kids to stand on). Over all - I think we all had fun.
Here is a shot of the BINGO game.
As you can see from these pictures, when you have a theme party, you tend to get that item. We are not lacking in the pokemon or bagugon toys at our house.
The cake didn't turn out as good as I wanted it too, but Ethan liked it - the boys drew the "pokemon ball" for me and I tried to copy it.
Happy Birthday Ethan! You are a special guy and we are super lucky to have you in our family!!!
"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of them, that you will read them from time to time to refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences" - President Gordon B. Hinckley, 2006
