Cutie Pie’s Bowling Party

For most of 2010 Cutie Pie had been telling me that he wanted a Batman bowling party to celebrate his 4th.  His decision never wavered.  Wildman will go through 10 different party themes before he finally settles on something.  Cutie Pie is very different.  He knows exactly what he wants.

So, on Saturday 20 or so of Cutie Pie’s friends and family members gathered together for a round of cosmic bowling in his honor.  It was such fun!  We completely abandoned keeping track of the bowling order and who was on what lane.  Somehow it all worked out.  The kids were happy and that’s all that mattered.

Happy Birthday (on Tuesday), my sweet boy!!!

I really enjoyed Bethay’s interview with Annalie so I decided to try it with Wildman this afternoon.  Interviewing will have to become an annual January tradition for us.  I’m looking forward to seeing how his answers change as he gets older.
