Hurricane Isabel?

Evan has been invited to 4--FOUR--birthday parties in the month of June. FOUR!! And I think all of these kids are turning 4, which leads me to wonder what in heck was going on 4 years and 9 months ago? And then I remembered...I was bursting at the seams pregnant with Evan and cannot forget good old Hurricane Isabel. Who could forget not having a flushing toilet for 2 days when your 8 1/2 months pregnant and needing to pee every 5 minutes?? So that answers the mystery of how so many children are celebrating their 4th birthday at the same time.

So here we are with our 4 invitations. 3--THREE!!-- of the parties on the same day. Seriously??? And technically we could hit all 3, as they are at 11, 2, and 4, but it's not going to happen. The 2:00 invite was a mass invite, so we'll skip that one (daycare has a rule that you can only give out invitations in class if you invite the whole class, so I don't feel too bad about skipping those parties).

By the time June is over, I may not be able to look at cake again. And now I have to figure out gifts for a 1yo girl, 2yo girl, 2 4yo boys, and a 4yo girl. I know that math doesn't add up, but we have another friend's party to attend and one of Evan's party is a double party for a brother/sister that Eric is also invited all that?


  1. WOW, that is kinda crazy!

    Don't forget to leave June 7 open :)

  2. I remember that hurricane! My mother was at my house. It was NOT FUN. Trying to finish my wedding stuff - NO power at most of the places we went. NOT COOL.
    My mother does NOT "rough" it!
