John's Birthday Party!

Well, I think I am finally recovered from John's party. Too bad it is now just over a week away from Christmas and I am sooooooo far from being ready for that!

John's birthday was a very long but special day. I was so glad to be able to take the day off of work to celebrate the big day! We started out the day with some presents and then when I happened to look out the window, it was SNOWING! What a great first birthday present for John! After breakfast (egg-free!) at IHOP and a check-up with the doctor (John is doing great!!), we had a party for the mom's group. This was a blast! We had a total of 13 babies and 16 adults at the party which made for a crowded living room! I don't think the babies minded one bit.

Saturday's family party was so fun too! We had lots of yummy food, had an airplane-making contest (Grandma's was the funniest...especially when Dad said there was no way it was going to fly), and great cake. John LOVED his egg-free cake, although he mostly ate the icing. John had tons of gifts- he is so spoiled by his family! Between the two parties, we still have toys sitting in their boxes. Hmmm...maybe they will reappear under the tree next week. :)

Only two more days of school! I can't wait for a two week break!!!
