The Last Hurrah.

I remember when Goob was a baby saying we would stop doing birthday parties when he turned 5.

Yet, here we are three years after that still having one.

In all seriousness, the festivities of yesterday {01.21.11} really will be the last “big” party. We are blessed that his circle of friends has grown with a new church and a new neighborhood, but our bank account hasn’t {ha!} and honestly, by next year, at age 9 *gulp*, I think there will be a clear distinction between long-time friends who will practically be teenagers, girls no longer being…just girls, etc. So next year, he will pick a set number of {guy} friends and we’ll take them to dinner; a movie; whatever he wants. But as for an official party–this was the last hurrah. 😦

OF COURSE, the first official snow “storm” decided to come on the day of his party. Ah, the memories of his first birthday party in 2005 that had to be rescheduled twice thanks to blizzards. I woke up so worried, but the texts starting pouring in to just make sure we were still having the party and all stated it would not prohibit them from making their way out. Phew!

Here are a couple of pics of the boy enjoying his day {it was a bowling party!}. I cannot believe that in less than two days I will be the mother of an 8-year-old.
