Caleb's Birthday Party

Last weekend Caleb turned 8! I don't know where the last 8 yrs have gone...my baby boy is turning into such a man :)

He wanted to have a slumber party and invited 4 little boys (2 from school and 2 from church). 4 of them were able to come...that was a perfect number of boys. They were so good. They enjoyed playing outside until it was dark....I looked out at one point and saw 2 boys hiding in the flower beds with their light sabers :) I didn't ask them any questions as I didn't want to give away their hiding spot. After a gourmet meal of pizza and cookie cake the boys moved on to opening presents! Caleb got some money and 2 lego sets. He was very happy! Th boys got on their pj's and enjoyed some popcorn while watching Star Wars. I finally got everyone settled down around 11:30. I had to come in a couple of times and finally at midnight I "laid down the law" and said no more talking. They were asleep in minutes.

The next morning they had another gourmet meal....donuts and chocolate milk :) The boys then got dressed and headed outside to play some more before parents started arriving.

Caleb told me after everyone left that it was the best birthday ever! I was so glad since I was afraid he would be disappointed since Matt isn't here.

So glad it went well and that Caleb had a great time! Will really enjoyed it, too, although he was pretty cranky for a while on Saturday! ;) After he got some lunch, he was better. Thanks for having him!
