In a Nutshell: Only Instagrams

The star of the week is Oldest. My every waking moment was spent on planning and finishing his party. Hence the only proof I have of the week is in Instagrams.

His special day was Friday.

He chose waffles for breakfast. He was ecstatic to get to buy hot lunch at school. I brought cookies into the classroom where I had trouble spotting him because he was sporting a super sweet paper visor hiding his birthday boy face.

For dinner of course, TACOS.

Then was present time. We were expecting some youthful excitement, instead we got a lot of preteen "ehhh".

We got a lot of giggles out of his "I am over it" attitude.

Yesterday was his party and it was probably the most successful party we have had. Oldest declared it was the best party he has had. The other guests seemed to be thrilled with all of the Harry Potter stuff too. This is Oldest's last BIG party, so I was happy to feel we went out in a bang.

It made my day to hear all the spell casting going on while they "flew" around on their brooms.

We had one guest not able to make it, so Middle got his own broom, wand, vest, and spell books too. He was thrilled.

The brooms have raced around our house almost non-stop waking time for the last day.

As I type, they are preparing to play "Harry Potter".

Oldest was pretty lucky and got some fun presents. Many which have already graced our Sunday morning activities.

Nothing like Lego time and of course some Angry Birds.

Hope you all had a great week. Here is to a less busy and chaotic week around here...fingers crossed anyway.

He's giving you pre-teen stuff at age EIGHT? Good night! Can't wait to see your party post, and happy birthday to Cole from his Texas fam!

We love our angry birds game. How fun.

Can't wait to see all the party stuff. :)
