So Saturday night we had allowed Ethan to pick 6 boys to invite to his Buckeyes party. He chose Ethan C., Connor, Spencer, Mitchell, Dylan and Charlie. They are a bunch of good boys and I hope that they remain friends throughout their school days!! They came over for dinner, pizza of course. Luckily Eli got invited over to Owen’s house to play during the party. He was so excited about that!!
After dinner we let the kids play for awhile, but you can imagine how 7 boys play! It got out of hand pretty quickly. Luckily the OSU football game was on, so that kept some of them busy. Then Ethan opened his gifts and we had cake. At around 6:30 we headed out to the OSU men’s soccer game. It was a great time. The game and parking were FREE!!! The boys did a pretty good job of watching and staying interested in the game. We thought we would only stay for the first half, depending on the weather, but it happened to be a beautiful night. We also had the time wrong so when we got there we saw the last 5 minutes of the first period. So then we stayed through the end. OSU won, and the boys cheered and cheered. When we got home there was more craziness to be had! We popped in a Star Wars Clone Wars show and that helped the madness
Ethan had a great time, its so hard to believe that he is eight already. The time is sure flying by. I have been watching home videos and just can’t believe how quickly I forgot so many things already.
So, Sunday we went to church and then around 4pm the festivities began again at our house. We had Ethan’s family dinner here. It was nice because Sean’s mom was in town from Chicago and Sean’s grandma popped in for a little while. Sean’s brother and his family were also here to celebrate along with my folks. So, it is always nice to be together, but I was beat!! Luckily the kids do a good job of playing together and it was a school night so we didn’t stay up too late! I think Ethan has been well celebrated. We will have one more at Thanksgiving when my sisters are here!! I can’t believe that we are on our way to nine years old!!!!!
Here’s our pictures from part 2……..be ready, there’s a lot!!
