Parties! (Of the Happy Birthday, Jesus and Grinchy Kind)

Today we had TWO parties to attend.  It was GO’s last day of Preschool before winter break, so she had a “Happy Birthday, Jesus” Party.  Then, Aunt CC and the Garden Girls invited us to join them at a “Grinch” Party – complete with awesome green food and drink!

GO was quite the well-behaved little girl at her school party.  Sometimes she gets pretty clingy when I’m in the room, but today she had a blast with her friends, and B10 was even able to sit next to her and eat his food (he was being an incredible big brother and taking care of Went for me during the party, so I could focus on GO).

Then we headed to Aunt CC’s Mum’s house – she and her sister did an incredible job of making the cool food.  B10 and CW (along with the big kid cousins) headed outside to jump on the trampoline and get the wiggles out, before coming in and designing their Green Christmas Trees.

They also had Grinch Santa Fruit Kabobs.

And Green Cookies.

And Green Drinks. (Notice the rim of green sugar in the picture?  How clever!)

They all sat downstairs quietly to watch the original “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”.  Unfortunately, I needed to be upstairs nursing Went, and letting him fall asleep on me.  The movie was waking him up and even when I was walking him, he couldn’t get settled.

After the movie, though, I was able to sit and have a nice chat with Aunt CC, while the Caterpillars went back outside to play (ah, the lure of the trampoline).  We headed home, just the boys, and GO stayed behind to spend the night with the girls (I am taking B10 and CW to meet their dad tomorrow, for Christmas with him, and this way GO won’t spend hours in the car).

LOVE my family and how sweet they are – especially LOVE how creative Aunt CC is coming up with these memory-making days and including us!
