Birthday Prep #2

Every year, the night before Alexander's birthday party, Jo-Jo hangs out and helps with decorating.

This year was no different. Jodie and Mama went to an early dinner and when we returned, we opened a bottle of wine, found the tape, and the decorating began.

However, Alexander had a plan of his own. Within minutes, Jo-Jo was in the play room to play with the woo-woo tracks and hang out with the toddler, leaving Mama on her own. So, Jodie and Alexander played while Mama decorated. And Eric might not have helped as much as in years past but the set up was much easier so all was done quickly and efficiently.

Here is my personal favorite moment of the night - Jodie and Eric on their iphones while I worked. So funny. Don't, don't, don't bite your friends.

This poster was made by one of my students as a thank you for writing her a letter of recommendation. I do love my students!

We used primary colors as the theme, hung up some streamers, put butcher paper on the table so kids could color and Voila! It's party time!

Finally, at the end of a very fun evening, Alexander opened his presents from Jo-Jo. Thanks for the books! We are always looking for more books to read to this kid!

Next up - Birthday party!!
