Preparation, Excitment, Event, Relaxation
Wow I have packed a variety of things into my weekend on top of working a full week! My son Ty is turning 4 on the 31st of this month which means we are having his birthday party this weekend. We are excited to have little friends of his over to the house and celebrate his birthday. He has requested a Super Hero themed party. I have been planning this party for a month now. I have completed the Super Hero capes and accessories, the goody buckets, and have three activities for the party. Decorations are next and the cupcake making and decorating will be completed by the weekend. Oh the preparation has taken a tremendous amount of time. It has generated excitement in our house as the topic of conversation continues to be around these fun activities, who is coming and the visuals of things around the house as they are produced. What a fabulous theme I might add. It is interesting to me that many of my friends who have hosted 4 year old birthdays all have had a Super Hero type theme. Must be developmentally a choice that kiddos make. Not only are we having a birthday party to celebrate 4 years of life we are also having our son Caleb's baptism, to celebrate his new life in the Catholic church. This is exciting for us. We have been very impressed with the increased knowledge of his faith now that our 4 year old has now that he is attending Catholic preschool. We look forward to raising Caleb with the same faith and are looking forward to watching his growth. Both Byron and I are becomming more and more involved with the happenings of Ty's school and our church. Caleb's baptism will be such a joy for us to witness! There has indeed been preparation for this event as well and it has generated excitement as well. We are looking forward to friends and play dates on Friday evening as well. It is amazing how busy we all get with the every day things life offers, work, school, actviites , making dinner, and finding time to be together. We are blessed to have friends to hang out with that our kids enjoy being together and we enjoy hanging out with. Details are all worked out and we are ready to have some fun. I am also looking forward to all of this being over. Funny but it is exhausting to plan, create, prepare, enjoy and ensure enjoyment for others that I will look forward to relaxation.
