Close your eyes darling mommy forgot to buy a gift bag this would fit in.
Cody and his new skate board, Now that we have 3 children we decided to price cap the birthday parties, as far as gifts are concerned $50 is the limit, other wise you know how it goes one birthday is in the middle of everything going on and you have to scrape to find the money to afford to even buy the cake and the next birthday is in a month where there's always overtime and no other events going on and you could buy the child anything they want. So we stopped that. We spend a little more than that on the birthdays, but thats all we spend concerning buying gifts.
As always the smallest boy wants to wrestle the biggest one! Please be careful! The boys were so funny while they were doing this, they decided that if you are put on your back you were done, but than they started changing it to if both knees hit the floor. And than the boys would make up reasons why they weren't pinned like, not both knees hit the floor and I know this because only my left one hurt hahaha! This is two of Cody's closest friends, Jud (standing) and Jacob.

Opening presents from his friends, someone got him a football so they all ran outside soon after to play tackle football, between the wrestling and the football I was so glad when they all crashed for the night, somehow I didn't have any broken bones or bloody noses to deal with that night.
The whole gang that stayed over for Cody's 9th Birthday party. I love being the "brave" mom. Even though honestly I was terrified when I realized what activities they wanted to spend their time doing.
