Shamefully, I have to admit this post title should read, "Happy 10.5…" You turned 10…just over six months ago. I'm finally now recording it for posterity. The big delay doesn't mean I love you any less, quite the opposite of course. I think I was just so worn out from staying up late the night before the party, trying to make this soccer field out of white medical tape (darn you, Pinterest), only to have six 10 y/o boys be impressed with it for all of 5 seconds, and then be solely focused on the boxes of pizza on the island and having a burping contest and just being boys. LOL!
Of course, you know I didn't mind in the least!
Even though you 10 y/o boys could care less about a felt table cloth made to look like a soccer field…or soccer ball plates that match the soccer ball garland on the windows…or water bottles with the logo of your favorite MLS soccer team, I will always love to decorate the table for your birthdays. I could have thrown a stack of paper plates and a roll of paper towels on the middle of the table and you all would have been just as happy…and that's all I wanted…for you and your buddies to be happy on your special day!
But I'm finally going to post it all anyway…so I can look back at the photos next year and remind myself to just get bags of double cheeseburgers and a roll of Bounty!
Happy 10.5 Son. You are so worth it and then some. You know I would do this all over again just for you! Love you lots, Kiddo!
Your big sister is so much better on the computer than I am...She did a great job designing the labels for the water bottles!
