Alex' birthday was yesterday (yup, St. Patrick's Day!), and he had a fabulous time. We had a party at our house, and he got to pick 6 friends from school to come. Instead of a cake, we roasted marshmellows on the deck and had smores. :) My primary job for the party was to make the fire and then babysit it... Heh. But it was a nice day to sit out on the deck, and I was relieved of all other responsibilities (other than taking a few pictures) so that was fine with me.
Speaking of pictures, here's a bunch:
You can also look at the rest of my pictures by clicking "Pictures" in the main menu up top.
On Friday night, Christie's parents came over for steaks on the deck, and to celebrate Alex' birthday. It was a load of fun, as you can see from the pictures also included above.
After the party yesterday, we had some yummy homemade macaroni and cheese (with smoked gouda and swiss guyere) - Alex' choice. Then we opened more presents. All in all a long, but fun day!
