Troy and Ashlyn's Birthday

Kids are so funny. I don’t have any of my own right now, but certainly hope to some day. This past Saturday, Jackie had a birthday party for her two kids. Ashlyn turned six on Friday, September 25 and Troy turns seven today, September 28. So, on Saturday, she had a party for both of them. Once all the kids arrived, Troy wanted to play Hide-And-Go-Seek. Apparently no one was listening to him because he got out the sidewalk chalk and wrote this. It gave me a chuckle.

The kids had awesome cakes. Ashlyn’s was a Barbie and Troy’s was Harry Potter themed.

The kids played a game where they had to wrap the birthday boy and girl in toilet paper to make them look like a mummy. It was a race to the finish.
If I remember correctly, the girls won. Girls rule, boys drool!

Jackie's sister Melissa put together all the games. She is a genius when it comes to kids' birthday parties and other creative things. If I'm lucky enough to have kids one day, I hope she'll come and organize their birthday parties.

Melissa's daughter, Madeline also helped with the arts and crafts. She taught the kids how to make dogs out of Mardi Gras beads.

All the kids had a good time and so did the adults. I even came home with a prize. Should have taken a picture of it. Oh well.

Kids are funny! Last weekend Bo wanted to sleep on the couch so I said "Sure"! When I got up the next morning, taped to the side of the couch was a note that read "Can we go to IHOP?" Each word was printed in a different color ink. I laughed because at some point overnight he must have seen an IHOP commercial and decided not to wake me but to leave me a note since he knew I would get up before him!
