November - So I am the worst, and I mean THE WORST, at throwing birthday parties. I am just not a party person. My poor kids.
I used to do really good and throw big parties but I just don't seem to pull them off anymore. Evan's birthday was in September but he hadn't had a party yet. Hailey's birthday was the beginning of November and she hadn't had a party yet either. So I just bit the bullet and planned 2 parties for 1 day.
So, basically, I am crazy.
I planned them (like the week before) for the Monday of Thanksgiving break.
For Evan's party, I took him and a few friends to SkyZone and let them bounce their little hearts out. Since it was a holiday week, I purchased the tickets online so that the time slot I wanted wouldn't sell out. One of the boys ended up not being able to attend so I had one extra ticket so I decided to use it for myself.
I had a great time but definitely realized how uncoordinated I am. I face planted. Twice. Not my prettiest moments but I had fun nonetheless.
Then I brought the boys home for treats, presents and play time.
One party down. One to go!
Hailey turned 14 and had some friends over. They had a great time being girls.
Whew! Survived 2 parties in one day.
