Well we survived Birthday Bash 2008. I haven't been this tired since my wedding. We got up around 8:30 and didn't sit down till after dinner. 33 guests showed up to celebrate Bear's 1st birthday. It was fun but really hectic. We got everyone fed, did cake and opened presents. 11 kids under 10 and no drinks were spilled, no one was injured, nothing was broken. My carpet is even amazingly cake free. Although I can't say the same for Bear's hair. He was a champ and played nicely and didn't have one meltdown. We still have cake and ice cream if anyone wants some.
Here's a picture for those of you who need visual evidence of the festivities.
