Well, it has been a rough week with Kobi being sick again. He was quite the trooper, though. He didn't complain too much, he just had one bad day of crying and fussing.
We had a small party planned for Sunday night with Kobi, Mark, Erica, Maile and myself, and I wondered if Kobi was going to be up for it. By Saturday, he was finally feeling better. Thank goodness.You see, he has been wanting a robot cake, so Mark, my husband, and I thought we would turn it into a robot party, so we invited Erica and Maile, our girls.
When the girls arrived, Mark had hung a robot sign on the door and decorated the walls with robots.
Our dinner was mashed potatoes, meatloaf, green beans and cheese and sausage robot figure. The dessert of course was the robot cake. We had robot plates, napkins and cups as well. Mark graciously helped me make the dinner and he is even doing the dishes for me as we speak. I don't even want to tell you what a mess the kitchen is.
After dinner, everybody made robots out of marshmallows and we had a contest to see whose was the best. Kobi was the judge. Mine, unfortunately, came in last place.
It was a pretty exciting night for Kobi. He got to play putt-putt golf with the girls when he was done.
It still amazes me how the big people probably had just as much fun as Kobi, if not more. This is the second party we have done with a theme and have vowed to do one a month. It is a great way to spend time with your family and to watch everybody having such a good time.
Kobi has made us all realize what it is like to be a kid again. Whether we are 26, 30, 51 or 52, we are all kids at heart.
Next month we are going to do a Sno-cone party with Sno-cones, finger foods and I am going to attempt to make Sno-cone necklaces and a Sno-cone cake.
Let's see, what will be the biggest challenge, the cake or the necklaces? I guess only time will tell.
