Last week just flew by. I knew that Eli was having a birthday and then the horror struck on Friday. Wait!?! Eli's birthday is on Sunday? Like, in two days? Oh, no. This mama had nothing planned at all. Eli really wanted to have a birthday party. Luckily, I run quite frequently with Lisanne and Darcy and their boys are the same age as Eli. I asked them if Scott and Weston could come to a party the next day and they said yes! Whew! I then sent out a frantic text to the rest of Eli's basketball team and in the end, the guest list included 6 boys. It was the perfect size.
Then I went all crazy putting an amazing party together. Well, ok, no I didn't. I had Rinar stick some balloons up on the main floor, bought a cookie cake and fudgesicles, a bunch of junk for gift bags, and then made some pizzas. After thinking of a few games to play, the party was ready.
The highlight had to be when we had the boys shoot action shots off the back of the truck like we did a couple of years ago when our family went camping.
They seemed to really enjoy it.
They also played some football in the front yard. This was a hit as well.
The important thing is that Eli got to blow out the candles, open a few presents, and feel very special for his day. Happy birthday, Eli.
