Caleb's Birthday Sleepover

Caleb decided to have a sleepover for his birthday this year. We had 4 boys spend the night. Uncle Kevin also came for the weekend. I warned him that there would be 6 boys at the house, but he was a brave soul and decided to come anyway.I made Cody, Caleb, Joseph, and Quinn go outside and play for awhile when they first arrived. It was cold, so that didn't last long. I ordered pizza for the crazy bunch and found them downstairs in the dojang with their shirts off practicing Tae Kwon Do and Jiu Jitsu.

Flexing muscles. This is the unfinished side of our basement (the dojang) where Caleb's TKD gear is kept and our workout equipment.

Time to open presents and eat cupcakes.

Adam, Caleb, and Joseph playing Wii in the basement. The boys played in the basement most of the night, which was great for the noise-level for us old fogeys.

All of the boys played together really well. No fighting or feelings hurt. Cody got upset once because he wanted to watch a movie downstairs and the others wanted to play a game. I brought some of Caleb's new birthday toys down in the basement and that distracted them.

Quinn and Cody playing Bakugan.

Silly time!

Who will be air hockey champion?

The boys had a great time. I put a movie in around 10pm to get them settled down. They wanted to all sleep together in the basement on sleeping bags. I fixed popcorn and they munched till crashing around midnight. Then they were up again at 6:30am. Ben made chocolate chip pancakes for the hungry bunch. I think they all ended up taking naps later that afternoon and we went to bed early Saturday night.

Sunday we decided to start a bonfire and burn some of the branches and tree limbs from our yard. We have been piling them at the bottom of our hill, as the wind knocks down snags and hanging limbs left over from last year's ice storm.
