Ed's Birthday... Let's see... Suz and Geo set up a really fun Treasure Hunt for him last night. Geo bought him a giant Kit Kat choco bar and a card for his b-day... and that was the "treasure". The idea here is that you get a bunch of strips of paper the size of book marks, and each has a clue leading to the next thing. It's hard to "generalize the plan" so I'll give you some examples;
Ed's current harry potter book lives on his bedside table.
The fry-pans live in the drawer under the stove...
As a step in the "Treasure hunt"... he comes to the front hall bathroom because of the last clue and finds... A frying pan, with a clue. The clue says "Put me away!".
In the drawer under the stove ... is his Harry Potter book, with another clue that reads "Put me where I belong".
On and on... One of my ties is in the fridge... Moms wireless keyboard is in a bathroom... etc. etc. etc...
HE HAD A BLAST... rushing around finding stuff... :D
Today at school... big "cup cake" bonanza... celebrating with classmates.
Tonight... McDonalds... (ug) because he gets to choose his dinner.
Saturday night... b-day dinner at my folks house... with my side of the family tree... co-celebration with a nephew.
Sunday afternoon... Laser Quest with 7 friends (always have as many invited kids as his age...)
Next Saturday night... b-day dinner with suz's family ... co-celebration with a niece. :D
No shortage of b-day celebrating... :D
Now... I need to go figure out why the coat rack FELL OFF THE WALL in the front hall. :( :( :(***
