Two weeks ago today, Noah hit double digits.
Hard to believe that this "little man" is now passing the decade mark. In honour of the occasion, I decided it was high time for a list.
Ten Things I Love About You
- Your smile.
- Your sensitive spirit.
- Your goofy sense of humour.
- How affectionate you are.
- Your love of music.
- Your imagination.
- How, once you learn how to do something, you always try to do your best and get it right.
- Your artistic side.
- The comics you create. (Sub-topic to #8. :-D)
- Your hugs.
Jude helped make some party decorations, including a bang-up Jolly Roger. The boys all blew up and hung balloons. (Well, Jason did most of the hanging. And Levi mostly chased balloons and popped them.)
As per usual, I left things until too close to the last minute (thanks to an unplanned, last-minute trip to Lacombe the weekend before to visit my grandmother, when I was planning on completing all the party preparations), so I actually had to put my mother and Amanda M. to work helping me finish the birthday banner when they arrived! Oh, well, at least the food was ready, for once! :-)
Kid's got "'Staches and Tats" galore, and ended up covering foreheads, hands, and arms. Jabin thought a beard was in order. Darryl thought Groucho Marx was in order. :-)
The activity that surprised us with its popularity was that all the kids got to decorate a white balloon with a permanent marker before they went home. They were very intent on it, and got really creative.
'Twas a fun night had by all! Argh, matey!
