Birthday part 1

Saturday was Connor's birthday party at the Erie Rec Center! We went to a birthday party there a few months ago and ever since then Connor wanted to have his party there too! We played a few games in the party room and had yummy cake. He got lots of cool presents including some fun games and a karaoke machine! Both he and Logan love the karaoke machine - almost every conversation we have now is amplified and has the echo feature turned way up :) He narrated our dinner tonight and at one point I called him Ryan Seacrest (if you don't know who that is, well, how can that be? :) ). He yelled into the mic, "LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, BOYS AND GIRLS! I AM CONNOR SEACREST!" :)

Unfortunately we didn't get many pics from the party but it was lots of fun! When we were done in the party room most of the kids stayed for swimming. Jeremy was the designated water taxi, giving all the kids piggy-back rides through the lazy river section of the pool. They all seemed to have a great time and the boys were really tired afterward! Connor's already planning his party next year...and announcing all his plans in stereo sound! haha

On Sunday we went to Santa's House in Boulder. Ok, really it's a sorority house near CU that's transformed each year to look like Santa's house but Connor still believes it's Santa's summer home. The boys each got to sit on Santa and Mrs. Claus' laps and for the first time Logan didn't scream! He actually didn't want to get off Santa's lap! They also had the same music and puppet show and some little carnival type games. The boys both had so much fun and, despite the sunny short-sleeve weather, it got us more in the Christmas spirit!

Logan listened intently to everything Santa said but could only muster a few yeah's in response :)

Since tomorrow is Connor's official birthday we're taking treats to his classroom. Well, that is if school's not cancelled due to the snow that's falling! There's a "no cupcake" rule at his school but anything else goes so this is what Connor and I came up with. We were inspired by some Christmas ornaments on our tree. I don't know about you but I am totally impressed :) haha

Hopefully the weather will cooperate so that Connor can share his birthday with his classmates! I have to go decorate his doorway with streamers now :)
