So glad the party went well. Sounds like a great turnout and fun for everyone.

I'm crossing my fingers that having 7 years between sons means that we don't have two voracious eaters at the same time. Right now, Scooter looks to be holding up that end of things... Of course, I'm sure that parties will be another story entirely.

We just don't have much experience with such voracious eating. T. is so small and eats small amounts, and L., well, L. hardly eats at all. It was strange to see just how much your average 9-year old boy eats--I can't imagine trying to keep up with that. On the other hand, it made me really realize how different L. is as far as eating, goes, and just how little he does eat.

Box Day had a different result at our house. Tears from B, and two whole toys getting put in there. One of which was her brother's. But it was our first year and I'm going to press her to do more this week, so I guess it's Box Month. And hopefully next year it will be handled with more ease.

I'm so glad the party went well! I know what you mean about food. My brother has a 17, 14, and 10 year old boys. The amount of groceries they have to purchase for just one meal is CRAZY!

Your Box Day this year sounds like our Box Day last year! And FYI, we weren't able to get L. to do a box yet, so we're working on that...I think it needs some build up!
