My big boy is 9 years old. He had a family party which included a chocolate peanut butter cake. Apparently the frosting is too sweet. Who knew that could happen for Vander???
For Vander's 9th birthday he decided to have a sleepover with his best friend, Bella. He also invited Oliven's best friend, Jeremiah, to come sleep over at our house. The kids had a great time. They played outside, ate dinner, watched a movie called Justice League: City Breakout (Vander asked for popcorn and pretzels instead of a cake) and played Wii. In the morning they had blueberry pancakes. The sleeping arrangements were originally all four of them in a room, but that didn't work out so after an hour of "trying" to be quiet Oliven and Jeremiah went to Oliven's room for the night. They all had a great time and I would say without a doubt that the first attempt at a friend sleep over was a success.
