It was a good party. Much XBox and Nerf air-gun. Much laughter and pizza and cake and pop and Twizzlers.
I’m either a really bad mom or I rock because I got him “Halo3.” Most of the kids (including mine) have played it a bit already this week but this sounded like fun with 4 controllers. They also played some racing game and soccer.
One girl, 9 boys. Including DS1 who thought he’d get out of it but his fancy in-town college friend was actually visiting with his family and not his old high-school buddies. Go figure. I think DS1 had fun anyways. Although, 3 guesses, based on facial expressions, which one is DS1…and the first guess doesn’t count.
(I don’t know why, but right now WordPress is not giving me the option of inserting a thumbnail. The full size is too big and grainy, so there’s link. I’ll fix it later if I remember.)
This is what I did while performing my “invisible/visible Mom” act.
One thing. They’re a lot louder when their voices change. Of the 11 that were there probably 3 were still in the treble range. The others? All big, low and loud. OMG.
They’re with X today because it’s an odd numbered year. As I did in May for DS1′s b-day I’ve made sure I’ve got something else going on so that I’m not just sitting around the house noticing how empty it is on his b-day.
Today, Mr. Hockey is coming over. We’ll have Sunday dinner (meat loaf and garlic mashed potatoes…hey! it’s fall and I need a little comfort food) And if it’s doesn’t rain dogs and cats and gerbils we’ll take a walk.
