We had a wonderful turnout for that party on Saturday. If I counted correctly, we had 27 people in our house! By 6:30 everyone had their bellies full with movie theatre concession treats (thanks again for helping out PJ)! Then we sang happy birthday to my boy before cutting the star cake (btw, have you ever cut a star shaped cake? Not easy!). While everyone was enjoying the dessert, my son opened his gifts. He got some wonderful things! He got a ton of outfits (which he really needed!), a gift card, a few books (including this cute one!) and puzzles, cars galore (including a Hot Wheels bank and chair), a few movies, Star Wars figures, a huge kite, Lego set, Leapster game, a drawing center, Color Wonder set, and a few other great things! The boy def had fun tearing through the tissue and wrapping paper!!!

Btw, of all his gifts, this one is my fav (my hubby and I thought it was perfect)! If you can't see the words on the shirt, click here.

Then around 8 we put in a movie for the kids in the "movie theatre" (aka, the Cave-what the finished part of the basement is called). The night before my hubby was able to string lights down the stairs to go with the theme...I think he did a wonderful job! They look great!!! Most of the guest left around 9, then we put the boy to bed about an hour later. Then it was the adults turn to watch a movie. Seven of us headed down the the "theatre" and watched Walk the Line! I just love love love that movie!!!

ok sneaky~ I just went back over all your posts the last 6 weeks thinking I know I read her everyday, and I didnt remember her telling the world she was preggers...I must be going nuts...
SO please tell me Im not going nuts and you didnt tell the world until now.
In any event, congrats! I always wanted to be pregnant and have a cool way of telling people...never happened.

Your son is adorable! Glad you had a good time and enjoyed Walk the Line. It was one of my faves this past year (and I had to get the DVD last Tuesday).
