Andrew had his sixth, ghostbustin' Birthday party at Chuck E Cheeses. He invited his friends Dylan, and Ravi from school, Warner, Rylee, Grammy, Papa, Karen, Roger, and of course us and we all had a blast. The kids in particular loved the vast amount of tokens Grammy had passed out. I'm pretty sure all of the adults had headaches towards the end. Fiel and CF were itching to leave as soon as the cake was eaten up, and presents were opened. I mean, can you blame them? This is Chuck E Cheese on a Friday night, we're talking about.
Thanks to my friend Natalia's awesome party store find, Andrew was able to have his Ghostbuster's themed party. He thought it was pretty cool.
Andrew made out like a bandit with the Birthday gifts. Andrew said it was the best birthday ever!
All and all, it was a really good night and Andrew only cried on the way home once. A really good night, indeed.

Not to steal Andrew's birthday post thunder, but the highlight of my night was seeing how much Clee enjoyed Skee Ball. This is the kid that prefers to be sitting at the table with his eyes closed at Chuck E Cheese, but not Friday night. He wanted to explore the joint, so we did. We ended up at the Skee Ball row. I asked him if he wanted to play, and he shook his head yes. He put his token in and just stared at the balls that came towards him. Fiel helped him get going, but it wasn't too long after that when he started to play on his own. He was having himself the best time, trowing those balls at the holes, and he even knew to put another token in after his game was done. What got me was that he used his left hand to throw the balls. Ambidextrous, much? He must have used 30 tokens on Skee Ball alone and won enough tickets to buy himself a few tootsie pops. That's not too shabby for a first timer. This has certainly been Clee's year to shine.

Happy Birthday baby Andrew! Also, tell Clee that I adore skee ball, too. I wish there were skee ball olympics. And I hate sports.
