*Gene's birthday was last Thursday, and he had a "kid party" Friday afternoon, and a "family party" Sunday afternoon. The kid party went completely as planned- he planned the whole thing, and handed me the schedule of events the day before...down to what time each activity would start, and how many minutes it would last. He had three friends play a football game, and they had a blast! They were actually all interested, and played together for more than an hour. Then they wolfed down their dinner so they could go play more. I was hoping Gene would be happy with how it turned out, and I don't think it could have gone better!
*Saturday night was the "Monster Mash" at school. I brought Gene and Janie (Lucy had a cold) and it was an alright party. Tons of decorations (as in, parents spent all Friday evening and all day Saturday decorating the school), food, gross things to feel, science experiments, and little activities...Gene and Jane didn't seem to have a stellar time, but they were certainly interested in everything.
*I have a LOT of pictures to post, but it's too late now and I'm going to postpone those until another night. Also a lot of funny kid quotes, but those too shall wait.
