Christmas Party of the Year

Drew made this invitation, unbeknownst to us, put a stamp on it, and mailed it to us. I am so excited for this party, it will be the party of the year!

In case it's hard to read, it says
"Your invited to a Christmas party in the basement on December 27, 2008 at 2:00 to 3:30.
PS Don't be in the basement from 1:00 to 2:00."

How can we NOT attend?? Too sweet.

He already has games and an adorable craft planned, as well as a screening of The Polar Express with cookies and hot chocolate. He's been making hand made decorations and he asked if I could help him a bit set things up. He'd like to make this a tradition every year. Noah already called dibs on planning next years' party and Drew was okay with that. Here' s the funniest part......Drew said on Christmas morning we should only open the Santa gifts and save all of our gifts to and from each other for his party on the 27th. I laughed like a crazy woman. Who wants to place bets on whether my boys will actually be able to make it 2 more days before they open their gifts???
If you read my screamin' banshee post below......see my update! :)

You and Todd have sure done something right. Your kids are so thoughtful. Sounds like a great party.

Aunt Cindy said...

What a great idea, and it will be the party of the year....but I doubt there are any presents to open unless you save one back and they don't know about it. Have fun....Clever Drew

Drew has always come up with such thoughtful ideas..I am sure this will be the event to remember in 2008..and to keep the celebration going from the 24th through the 27th!

Wow, you've been busy! I've been going crazy trying to get my mom down here for Christmas with all the crazy weather IL has! Anyway, she should be here in a few hours now so maybe I can keep up with the blogging world again! I always enjoy reading your blog so very much and this time it was really nice since I had so much to catch up on! Thanks for making my day. :)
