The Party of the Year

There is a party that I have been hearing about CONSTANTLY ...THE PARTY OF THE YEAR! No, I am not talking about George Clooney's Oscar Party - I am talking about Ethan T Golding's Big Bash. He has been planning this party for months and lately it's ALL he talks about.
This boy cracks me up. Whenever we see something cool at the store he insists that his party is tomorrow and he NEEDS it for his party. Every time we go to the store he needs to buy lots of snacks for the party. I have been asked at least 3 times this week if we can finally start making the cake for his party. On Friday when I informed him that we would be babysitting some of his friends Saturday night he said," That's good because my parties tomorrow night." Every picture he draws is a invitation for his friends or a decoration for this celebration. Lately every time I watch Food Network Ethan insists that every dish prepared is, "exactly what I want at my party." My most recent favorite is that when ever we are in the car Ethan regularly says, "Mom, let's talk about my party. He then talks about the games, food, costumes, cake, decorations, and friends that his party will have. You should know that this boy's Birthday isn't until June. He isn't talking about a birthday party...just some amazing party that changes it's theme and date daily. A party where there will be treasure chest paining, a soccer ball cake, a pool and clown, art projects upon art projects, rainbow cupcakes with, "all the colors you can imagine," with all the cousins, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends this boy has every known. I do love a good party, he must have got his passion for parting from him mama. His imagination cracks me up!

Here is a picture of Ethan at a recent shower I threw. I post this picture to demonstrate how much he loves parties. He gave up a trip with Preston and Tyler to feed the ducks and get a TREAT all because he could not miss this party.

That is awesome! My mom says that when I was younger I invited about 15 girls to a best friends party at my house and then just forgot to tell my mom. I talked it up and told them all these awesome things we were going to do, and when one girl called to confirm late the night before this big event, my mom was SHOCKED. So, thankfully she helped me pull off this great party--just reminded me of something Ethan might do someday...so be prepared! :)

I can't believe he missed feeding ducks and treats!!!! But then again I wouldn't have wanted to miss that party either...it looks like you can throw a good one!
