Saturday...Griffin's Birthday party...  
Today is my nephew's birthday and he's 7 years old. His mom and dad are taking him out to eat and to a movie. Yesterday was his party. The house was packed with kids, friends and family...and, as always, he 'made out like a bandit'! My mom, in a surprising move, actually ended up getting him one of his favorite toys...ummm...a wheel-shooter...it looks like a race car and you load it up with these wheels and switch the gears and they come rocketing out! LOL...family pets BEWARE! Mom also bought him some very nice clothes (which he always just hands to his mom). I bought him...

With a house full of kids and adults, it always falls to Uncle Mark to be the assembler...I put together the blaster-rifle that I bought him, the wheel shooter mom bought and several different versions of lightsaber...my older sis bought him one of those 'assemble your own lightsaber' kits...LOL...while I was reading the instructions and counting the pieces, he would run in and yell stuff like, "We don't have a century here, the Sith Lords are attacking!"...PLUS, I had a chubby calico cat (Hilda) on my lap and a greyhound laying against my back (Patrick)...after he licked all the skin off of my face!.
I also tried to keep Gweni from being TOO jealous and I helped her make some "No Boys Allowed" signs for her door! *Grin*. She is so funny...she came stomping into the room with a mean look and demanding paper, a crayon and some GLUE! YIKES! I talked her out of glue and tape and we made little cords to hand the signs. (I also talked her out of 'kicking all the boys in the nards').
Anyhoo...we had a good time and I ate way too much sweets!

Ah, I see you follow the same rule we do when buying children's gifts: lots and lots of parts! :D

Hahahahaha! I was getting containers and lining them up to keep the pieces of all of the toys seperated!

Sounds like a great time! You sound like the BEST uncle around! And I can totally see the expression on Gweni's face - I think Analise uses one just like it!

OMG, Su...when she gets that determined look...and looks ready to take on the world, I just wanna squeeze her so hard! LOL! Adorable!
