Impromptu Birthday Party

It's almost my son's birthday.  We have a party with the family this Saturday, but many of his friends aren't able to make it.  Bubba was upset, because he really wanted a last birthday party with them before we move.  "Mama, can't you make a party?" he asked.

"I'll see what I can do, Bubba," I said.

This morning I looked at the calendar.  No showings.  No appointments.  "Bubba," I said.  "Get your friends together.  We're having a party."

I went to the store and got pizza, cake mix, chips, balloons, and other assorted party supplies.  I went to work making the cake (He wanted a Minecraft party theme, so it was a square cake with a sword and pick on it).  We blew up balloons and decorated the house.  A short while later, a lot of boys invaded our house.  They ate pizza and cake and played Minecraft on Xbox 360.

"Mama, that was awesome!"  Bubba said afterwards.

Yep.  Not bad for an impromptu party!

    1. It was probably the easiest party I ever whipped together. Usually I have to plan a lot of activities. XBox took care of all of that! ;)

  10. Now THAT'S the kind of birthday party kids enjoy. How cool that you could make it happen before y'all move to a place where people actually say, "y'all."
