Quickly Planned, Greatly Enjoyed!

Gone are the days of meticulously planning a birthday party...well, at least for now. At 11am on Sunday, I decided we should get serious about having a birthday party for Noah. So I called the mom of Noah's best buddy while she was in church...and invited her son and daughter over for a "last minute" birthday party at 2:30pm. How's that for acclimating to the laid back nature of the culture!?! Noah has a current obsession with the Transformers: Bumblebee and Optimus Prime. So, I got on-line, found a Bumblebee print-out...printed out a bunch...glued them to a paper bag...gift bags--CHECK! Ran to the store, bought some icecream popsicles and candy. Snacks--CHECK! Noah and Jeff had made a Bumblebee piñata out of a cardboard box earlier in the morning. Piñata--CHECK! Ella blew up some balloons. Decorations--CHECK! Let the party begin!!!
