Foxy guitar lesson
This pic was from my cousin. I guess the high school mascot walked in on Ivan's guitar lesson and decided to play some too. Auntie and Ivan said that he wasn't very good at guitar- but what fun! Speaking of fun, Brian and I get to go on a date tonight! We are being all grown up with a sitter and a drive to the city for dinner and a movie! Birthdays are good for something! It'll be nice. I think our last date was our anniversary in Jan! We are also planning lots of dates in about 16 years, when the kids are (maybe) moved out ;)
Tomorrow I'll get some more pictures on my camera as we celebrate the day my life changed forever when I had Ivan and became a mother. OK, so it's just his birthday party, but that day was so significant for us, a real landmark in our lives.
This is his first party where we are doing the "invite some friends to come from 2-4 party". He's so super excited. I hope it won't be total mayhem, but I think we've got about 20 friends coming, so I can hope all I want, but mayhem will probably be the agenda- which is why you just do it for 2 hours until next year?
I have lots of games planned, so that will be fun and JOY JOY- Ivan picked out the easiest cake design. We are having a music theme party, but he didn't want a music themed cake. He saw a cake that looked like a present- rectangle with dots and a ribbon- so we frost the cake, plop on some MnMs (or smarties here) and they had used fruit leather, but he wants frosting in an t. Yipee for easy ;) I just wrote drink boxes on my little list of last minute items to get.
He has already had such a wonderful week. We both have. And we are so greatful to all our friends and family who love us!! Thanks to all. ACK- I just remembered we didn't take our traditional boy on my lap picture. I'll have to go do that now!!
