We went to friends house.  He had lots of friends over.  We played catch and ate pizza.  Then we went tick or treating we went me, my friend, and some others friends. Someone was Patrick from Spongebob.  Another person was a baseball player.  We went off and we got lots of candy.  Afterwards, we traded the candy.  My favorite candy is Nestle Crunch.  So I got like ten.  I actually ate 0 candy that entire night!  After we went to my grandparents to say hi, which is what we do every year.

Spartan Pumpkin

We carved a Michigan State pumpkin.

Friday I had football practice. I have been on this team before. I am a wider receiver. Whenever I catch ball, I seem to fall and roll with the ball.  I don’t know why.   We don’t even have a team name yet this season.

For Halloween we carved a pumpkin I picked the pumpkin and the design and my Dad carved it. He made a Spartan head for Michigan State. I really liked it. We put it up by the house when people come over to get candy from the bowl.

My best friend’s birthday

My friends real birthday is on Monday.  We had a birthday party this weekend and played video games like Call of Duty. Then we went on a trampoline. We played a game and we have to trip the person to win. It’s more fun than it sounds. We played that for a while.

Then we played a game we called infected.   It’s like when you get shot you are infected and you have to get other people. Then we made a cake with one side Minecraft and the other side was Call of Duty themed.  I liked that and it turned out good. After we played minecraft on the Xbox and then went to sleep. This morning we  played infected again. Then we ate donuts. After we went on the trampoline again. Then we went in side and played minecraft on our iPads. We found bunch of stuff and played for an hour. Then we ate lunch. then we played on trampoline one more time then we left.

When we where there my mom and dad where near Asheville, North Carolina for a wedding.

On Sunday, I celebrated my 10th birthday.  I had a party on Saturday with a Minecraft theme we sent up the water slide.  I invited only a few people because I wanted birthday money to go towards a new Xbox. At the party we played games, went on a the slide, made some
crafts, and ate cake pops.

We then went to a family dinner at my favorite restaurant, Steak N Shake.  It was fun.

Sunday we went to Typhoon Lagoon.  I really liked the big wave pool.  It was fun to ride the waves.

Olympic Themed Birthday Party

The Olympic-themed birthday party was a big success! So much fun – we are planning one for the Winter Olympics – which happens to be on my other son’s birthday in 2014!

Here’s a look at some of the food and events we held for the party. The weather was a bit hot – so we decided to cancel some of the events so the kids could just jump in the pool. We had to be flexible with so many kids and such hot temperatures. But everyone had a great time and had nothing but amazing things to say about the whole theme.

As you can see, we had a lot of food and a lot of fun!

We had the kids each make their own Olympic flag.  We used the sewing machine to sew up end with enough room for a stick, bought white bandanas and sharpie markers, drew the Olympic rings on each flag and let the kids decorate the rest.

Once those were done, we had them line up and did a Parade of Nations, complete with music and introductions.

After that, game one!

We hosted a Javelin throw – with pool noodles.  They used their flags to mark distance.

We then had an obstacle course around the pool area with fun activities.

We had many poor events planned – like pool noodle swimming, duck hunt with rubber pool duckies and more.  But as mentioned- it was just too hot so open swim!

Then, everyone got their own medal!
