Yes, I love to throw parties - LOTS of opportunity to be creative and over the top with parties! I'd like to think I've organized a few pretty great parties for my kids. I am very sad to report that this (2017) was the year for Connor to have a party (we alternate years - Connor one year, and then Shelby & Noah get parties the next year - so every other year they get a birthday party) for his 14th birthday and he didn't want one! I tried to talk him into Mad Scientist, WipeOut, even a themed party around his beloved Dominion board games, but NOPE, nuttin' for that kid.
If you scroll through my parties below, you may notice that it seemed we never celebrated poor middle child Noah's birthdays - but NOT true! He just wanted parties at fun places (as if I couldn't plan something MORE fun - hmmpfh!) like a laser tag place or a trampoline jump center. Next year he's up for birthday #13, so hopefully I can talk him into something fun (yes, fun for me!) JUST ONE TIME!
