Company came yesterday. They’re sleeping. Mia insists on making as much noise as she possibly can. Cheyenne’s trying her best to keep her occupied for a few minutes so I can update. It’s not easy.
The party went surprisingly well. Actually it was wonderful. No fights broke out, no one cried, no one wanted to go home. Caleb and I stayed up until 2:00 a.m waiting for them to pass out, but 2 didn’t go to sleep until about 4:00. Talk about tired the next day.
The pots were a big hit with the girls and their parents. We planted some beautiful purple pansies in them the next morning. I highly recommend this birthday activity.
Cheyenne totally made out like a bandit–the girl has like $200.00. I never, in all my 26 years, have gotten that much cash on my birthday.
I feel the need to tell you all about this one girl that came to the party. I was just touched by her. She was quiet, her hair looked like it hadn’t been combed in forever, she wore her day clothes to sleep in, and kept them on the next day. Her parents don’t make very much money–which is fine–Cheyenne is very good friends with this girl and simply wanted her to be here, present or none.
Anyway, the point: The girl gave Cheyenne many, many things that she said were brand new–one of which was something everyone else recognized as a gift their teacher had given her 2 days earlier…she insisted it wasn’t…I felt bad for her. At that age, anything your teacher gives you at the end of school is gold. To give it away 2 days later…that’s a big-hearted gift if you ask me. Anyone can have their mom pick up the latest movie at Wal-mart, or stick a $20 in a card…but this girl gave Cheyenne a bag full of things that must have been extremely special to her. That’s just the greatest gift of all. What a sweetheart.
I’m sorry to all you guys out there that I haven’t checked on in a while. I will try to make the rounds soon, and I will try to blog a little more regularly…I’ve been "tagged" (Dang it!) so expect an entry about my innermost desires. Yea!
If you come here and don’t see anything new, check out my sidebars full of really cool people. I just love reading their spaces. The short description I gave each one doesn’t begin to describe how very interesting these folks really are.
Alright, I’m out cubscout.
