Birthday Bowling...

Campbell's Birthday is December 22...poor guy, hard to have a birthday so close to Christmas but actually he makes out pretty good because we probably do more just to over compinsate!  We always celebrate his actual birthday with just family and he gets to pick where...usually it is Chuck E Cheese but this year we went downtown St.joe to the Curious Kids Museum and than sat fireside for lunch at Schu's on the Lake...we watched it snow and ate some yummy food!  then it was back home for cake and presents.  So, we  then celebrate with friends in January.  This year we left the house and Campbell hosted his party for 11 boys (wild!) at the bowling alley...where we also played mini golf and had pizza and cake.  It was a really fun night, I LOVE birthdays...I love the planning and celebrating and the colors and "themes" and the cake and just all of it...how special to celebrate the day you brought your child(ren) into the world...truly Gifts from God!  Here are some highlights from the night...
11 boys, 1 sister, 1 baby brother, 1 helper, 2 parents, 4 pizzas, 3 pitchers of Sprite, 10,000 "boys, don't jump on that...boys, get off that", 3 sets of bowling, 1 round of mini golf, 830 gumballs given as favors in 12 mason jars...(well, 830 bought with plenty to spare!) - tags that said "We had a "ball" bowling! Thanks for coming to my party..."...4 cake mixes used to make bowling ball/pin cake), 160 pictures taken, 1 set of very tired parents...1 very happy Birthday Boy!  We love you Cam!...
