I cannot overemphasize just how much Nik has been looking forward to this birthday. He has talked of it constantly since his brother's birthday in DECEMBER. He has been planning it, making guest lists, changing his mind about the theme, and issuing invitations for 5 months. Every week, at least a dozen times, he has asked how much time was left... this week he finally had his birthday party.
The final decisions? We decided to have it at Leapin Lizards, invite his whole class, and the theme was Spongebob.
We had the party on Friday afternoon and, despite it being a holiday weekend, we had a good turnout. Most importantly, most of his best friends could make it.
Even his Baba and Dieda (who he invited back in December), his teacher, and our two sitters Julia and Terry made it.
He got to open a LOT of presents. In typical Nik fashion he ripped apart the packages so quickly that the kids who were watching did not get bored and restless...
The verdict? "I had the BEST birthday!"
