Birthday Celebrations


Tonnes of fun was had yesterday, as we celebrated our boys 10th birthday.

Our day started off with our birthday tradition... all the kids (and Boo) squeezed into/onto Mum & Dad's bed.  We each shared something special we loved about the him, then we prayed for him and then it was present opening time!

Just so you all know, he loves the blanket.  He even said it was his favourite birthday present of them all!  I must say that at that precise moment, my heart swelled with motherly pride in having a crochet appreciative son.  Sigh.


He invited a few of his nearest and dearest friends (and family) around for an afternoon of feasting and fun.


We celebrated with a giant layered green birthday cake I made for afternoon tea (just like the rainbow cake but each layer a different shade of green) along with other party nibbles.  


There was also an array of fun games for the boys to take part in, organised by my amazing husband (aka the "Youth Pastor Extraordinaire")... lovely things like Snot Put (shooting jellybeans from the nose), an egg and spoon obstacle course, dizzy broom spin, paper dart competitions, blowing up balloons with your nostril and other disgusting fun-filled activities that only tween-ager boys would love.


The main disgusting thing about the game time was that Boo kept eating all the snot covered jelly beans from the Snot Put game!  Ewwwww.


Anyway, it was an awesome afternoon, and our boy was totally blessed, because isn't that what birthdays are all about?  Celebrating the blessing of a precious life.

Life is a gift - totally worth celebrating at every chance you get.
