Yep. He's nearing the double digits.
Today my baby celebrated his 9th birthday.
And boy did we CELEBRATE!
This boy loves the ARMY.
Ever since he was a baby, (wasn't that YESTERDAY?!)
he's always wanted to be a soldier.
Well today he can be.
His theme is the Army.
Lots of guns.
And as you walked in our front door you were extended a hearty
and because partying is
one must strike a serious pose
Everything had to be decorated just so
and ready for the guests to check in :)
of course all soldiers need their helmets and canteens
and don't forget the
We also had to make our own
that consisted of hot dogs and chips
that our brave little soldiers could chow down in this
And a party is just no fun without boys and
They are so much fun I had to try my hand at them
of course we had to decorate the rest of the house to lend
to the ambience of the Army
and after all the soldiers had reported for duty
and were duly outfitted with their helmets it was off
to the back of the house to follow the signs that
which actually led them to a grand ole, wet, good time!
with slippin' and slidin', water grenades and water guns,
and running around after which we let them all in
and said "let them eat cake!"
A super good time was had by all especially my little soldier.
As for this mama, well this mama was dead tired. So tired that she took a long, three hour nap in one of the barracks.
But it was all worth it because the brave little soldier had fun.
And in the end that's all that matters, isn't it?
