Gabe’s Birthday Interview

I stole this idea from Julie MacDonald and her blog MACDONALD MADNESS.  I think it’s a cute way to remember how my kids are at different ages and the way they talk.  Gabe was full of one word answers on his birthday, But it was still fun.

    • Emma? 7

  • What makes you happy? “Mommy”

  • When do you laugh? “When Mom tickles me.  When the tickle bug comes.”

May the force be with you

Star wars Invitation gabe

I could have used a little bit of the force during Gabe’s birthday.  It was his first birthday party with lots of friends.   There was such a strong contrast in the home as we waited for the first guest to arrive and a few minutes later when everyone came.

Although the boys were quite a bit more rowdy than the “girl-parties” we are used to,  everyone had a a lot of fun.   The boys had a good time battling with light sabers, eating cake, drinking “Yoda Soda’s”, and breaking open a piñata.  (Although the piñata almost gave me a heart-attack.  Luckily no one went to hospital.)
