EiGhT is GREAT!!!!

On November 14th
Sterling Daniel Turned 8!!!!
and since our children get "friend" birthday parties every even year-
Sterling Had a MAGICAL PaRtY the Friday before the BIG DAY!
~
THE INVITES (above)
were written in invisible ink (lemon juice) and gave all the party details.
His friends and parents had fun finding different methods to heat it up so they could reveal the message- we hear that an iron and a stove worked best
(HOWEVER we missed out on that satisfaction cuz' someone in our family threw away ours before we could do it-darn)

THE DECORATIONS


the sign was compliments of Sterling's siblings

THE GAMES
Card Games were in our FUTURE for sure this eve!
The kids tried to make card houses as they arrived
Played a Little Game of MEMORY cards
They also FLUNG the Cards into the magical hat to see who could get the most in.
They played Mind Reader where Sterling found the penny he had picked earlier, out again in a BIG pile of pennies.

THE MAGIC SHOW We had a GRAND PERFORMANCE By our magician...
AMBERLYN THE GREAT!
who popped out of our bedroom and all! She even shared her magic secrets for the kids favorite tricks
AND scored some of the COOLEST AUNT POINTS!
and most the tricks even worked!
Much to her surprise!
This was the time the water trick worked
the second time our carpet took a beating!
THIS IS the COOL as ICE cupcake making MOMMA PARTY PLANNA'
not tooting my own horn or anything- ha ha ha
~
THE CAKE AND PRESENTS
cupcakes (topped with pop rocks--that was a fun suprise) and birthday bash ice cream..YUM YUM!!!
~
THE GRAND FINALE
the grand finale was a magical box, that you passed around to the most annoying calliope music (we had playing all night- I got from a professional clown on my mission). When the song ended you unwrapped the present to get your take home party bag full of: Chinese finger games, glow in the dark bracelets, star stickers, a magical card game (that disappears), and pop rocks. It went on and on until everyone had one. AND Lucky Emma guessed closest to how many candies were in the jar and WON THE WHOLE THING! WAHOO!!!

FAMILY BIRTHDAY FUN!
Sterling got to take a much needed Sunday afternoon nap with his mom
&
Sunday eve ended peacefully with a small celebration of Sterling
and a little bit of ice cream to boot!
Sterling has gone to his FIRST CUB SCOUT ACTIVITY
&
WILL BE GETTING BAPTIZED Saturday December 4th @ 2:30pm!
EIGHT is a GREAT BIRTHDAY!
We are so GLAD you were BORN into our FAMILY STERLING!!!!
