I started the day with James. The family woke up slowly. Zander and Stacia were invited to a birthday party. Stacia was the only 5 yo girl with a group of 10ish boys...so I thought it wise to stay. Mike took the other kids shopping for MY BIRTHDAY! WOOT!
I enjoyed the party and the visit that went along with staying. I'm always amazed at those of you who pull of theme parties with tons of friends...it isn't in my make up. We always have family parties...though Zander is now asking about a friend party....hmmmm. It was a Star War theme party.
Death Star Cake
For a craft the kids made droids....out of trash...loved this idea.
Stacia's droid had a purple hat, beads and sea glass buttons. ::snort::
Foam taekwondo sticks served as light sabers....and there unplanned wars as well as games using them. Pop the bubbles with the light saver.....Snacks were even themed.....yoda soda, battle star (?) pizza, light saber hot dogs....Stacia wants to know why the chips were so good - Doritos - guess she liked them better than the baked ones. ::snort::
In our discussion we realized that Mary may be taking the train Wed morning - and so am I. They said NOT to go to Tokyo station but to exit at Ueno and get the subway to Hiroo. Less train transfers....I think this may work.
Zander came home and went to bed. I have a bad feeling about this.....last week I missed church because Stacia was sick. I can't pin point what is up with Zander...but sleeping, feeling cold....not quite "on".
Living all of life before the face of God...
