Well, to show what a bad mother I am, Brian's 8th birthday was actually September 27th, but we didn't celebrate it at that time. We had bought the boys new bikes in August as a birthday present and gave them to them early so they could enjoy them before the snow flew! I don't even know why we didn't have a party for Brian, but we ended up having a sledding party for him. It really was nice because our friends the Griffin's are here from the Philippines, so their three younger were able to come, and they even stayed to help, which was so nice--and fun!
Chad made up some game for them to play with balloons
(Don't tell their mothers they were running with suckers in their mouths ;)
Derek helped Brian blow out his candles--because they kept re-lighting
