Birthday #7

The first (and last) birthday cake I ever bought.
Will has a big role in the acts.
Happy Birthday to Will, cha cha cha!
Everyone donning their balloon hats from the magician
The birthday boy gets the biggest and the best hat!
Well, we bit the bullet. We went ahead and had a birthday party for the big guy. Not that we are against birthday parties! They are fun.....when they are at other friends' houses, when you can leave at any moment and when you don't have the stress of getting everything ready. Nonetheless, we felt it was time for Will to have a birthday party.
We opted to keep it simple. Invite a few of his best buddies from school and call it good. Anyone who knows Will, knows what a struggle that was to slim down the list of friends to the mere number of 10! Nonetheless, it was accomplished and the invitations (created by Mom) were sent out.
Although Will had a Harry Potter birthday cake for his second birthday, the child is still in love with him and begged to have a Harry Potter theme. I didn't fuss too much because it made my job of planning the fun very easy. Hire a magician! I have to say, IT WAS AWESOME! The guy was great and kept everyone laughing at all times. There was never a dull moment the entire hour that he was in our home.
All in all, the party was a huge success. My only complaints were the energy level and lack of manners. All I can say is, now I know why no one else does this at their home! I think I will leave it at that.
Will had a great 7th birthday party and we all had fun.
