We had a birthday party for Alec on Saturday, November 21 at our house. Three of his friends from the area came, as well as our dear friends, the Shullenbarger family, from Maryland. Grand total of participating kids (including our family) was nine. Alec opened his Batman house right before the party because that was what gave him the idea to have a Batman-themed party. Activities were decorating Bat planes (thanks Chris and Jessica for making them) then throwing them at the Bat target and freeze dancing to music. Pizza, cake and ice cream and presents rounded out the fun. Alec thoroughly enjoyed his party.
Mondays are our busiest day of the week, so we celebrated in the midst of the activity. Alec picked all three meals (Breakfast: French toast; Lunch: P,B,&J; Dinner: Hot dogs). As you can see from the picture above, he was very excited to get to use the red birthday plate. Happy Birthday, Alec!
