    had a afternoon tea birthday at a local park, from 2-4pm. food was chips, fairy bread, lolies, fruit platter, cake. adults dip platter. it was a easy and fun party as the kids played on the playground the whole time. even had trouble getting them to do birthday cake as he where having so much fun. they got lollies bags at the end the best thing about having it at the park was i did have to play any party games. i would do this again as i have two other children

    We had a video game truck come to our house! The kids thought it was awesome and the parents did too! :)

    On April 27th, my son's seventh birthday began with a 2 hr. weather delay at our school (where I am a teacher and he is a student). We were expecting bad weather but had NO idea how bad things were about to become. We woke him up singing "Happy Birthday" as the first tornado sirens began to sound. We had one storm pass through with heavy rains and winds. We started school that day at ten and by eleven we were preparing for early dismissal. We didn't time it just right and the storms started popping up all around us. As I stood on one end of our school trying to keep my students calm, I couldn't help but worry about my own son. I received a text from my husband shortly before the first storm was due to arrive telling me that my mother-in-law, who lived very close by, was on her way to check him out, I was relieved because her house has a basement but I was uneasy being seperated from him. I had felt that same tug on my heart 7 years earlier as they took him to the nursery for the first time. We weathered the next storm, sent the remaining students on home and I headed to my mother-in-law's house to wait out the remaining storms there. By four o'clock that afternoon, the weather sirens had sounded no less than 15 times. The power went out and we had no idea what we were in for as evening approached. Several times we looked out to see debris falling from the sky. A piece of someone's trailor landed in the driveway, metal roofing hung from the power lines but we were all safe and together. As my son and I sat in the dark, I told him stories about the day he was born. My mother-in-law, father-in-law and both his sisters added their own details and we passed the time in between sirens celebrating his life and laughing together. We were without power for 5 days and couldn't figure out how to cook a birthday cake on a grill, but he didn't seem to mind at all. The skating rink he had planned to have his birthday party at was in the heart of Rainsville, one of the harder hit areas and we are still waiting to see if we will get to have a party there, but he doesn't seem mind it at all. He hasn't once complained. He sees the devastation and knows we were fortunate. We will have a party eventually, but for now, we continue to help out our neighbors and thank God daily that he spared us once again.

    We had a pirate themed birthday party with family and friends. Ordered the cake from WinCo. They didn't have any pirate cakes so I had them frost it blue and I bought some Pirates of the Caribbean toys as a cake topper. Everything else I picked up from Zurchers.

    We had 4 of his best friends join us at the splash park for water fun, pizza, cake and free play on the playground. It was really laid back and the kids all had a good time!

    This year was a more old-fashioned, less expensive birthday. We took a group of 4 boys to the YMCA to swim, I used my son's Y membership and another's and then brought two friends in as guests--free. They swam for about 1 and a half and then we went back to our house for orange cupcakes with white frosting, and pizza and juice, and presents. The number of boys was very manageable, no fights, no annoyed parents, and fun was had by all!

    We had out-of-state guests, combined with school and more family guests. We had the party the weekend after his bday at home to save money. On his bday I sent donut holes to help celebrate with his class. He really loved 3D movies at the theatre. Photographing fun where ever we go, with any camera. His whole birthday celebration is still going! We love him so much and he deserves to do anything we can to make this whole year special! Including, theatre visits, flight lessons at the airport, horse lessons, rock climbing, train visits, fun family vacations and visiting parks.
