What do 8yr. old BOYS do at a Birthday PARTY???

Well as you know, my Lance turned 8yrs old on Tuesday and he requested that he have a friend party instead of the traditional all family that is what we did this year....So Saturday was the big day!!

He was able to invite three friends....after some hard deliberating he invited (L to R) Eli, Ridley, Lance, Austin, and then Caleb is at the bottom....The first thing they did was jump on the trampoline and then Dad came up with this game....If they got hit with the a ball from the gun they were out.....They usually had two boys shooting at a time.

Then they played another game..they were playing tag, but they were not allowed to touch the ground or they were automatically tag back either.....They had a ball!!Austin, Eli, Lance, Ridley, and Caleb proudly sitting on top of the swing set!!! (Dad's idea, not mine) Looking at this pic just makes me smile at "boys and their fun"

This pic of "boy and their fun" makes me gasp....oh PLEASE no body fall down.....I don't want to take anyone to the ER with broken bones, or worse!! (notice Dad in the background being so non-chalant about what is going on!)Well Dad decided to get in on some fun with all the boys.....The boys goal??? To get Justin down and hold him for 3 seconds.....I'm not sure if that ended up happening or might depend on who you ask....but they had a good time trying anyhow!The next order of business...a scavenger hunt.....They were split into 2 team (Yellow team, and the White team) Justin had posted clues all over the property leading to the next clue...then at the end we had little party favors for the boys to take home...Although the race to the finish was very close this team won...which meant they got served cake and ice cream first... Here are the teams scouting their clues!!
Then it was supper time....Tator Tot Casserole was on the menu....Here is the recipe in case you have never made it

1 pound hamb.

2 cans cream of mushroom (or chicken)

1 bag (2cup) shredded cheese (or block Velveeta works great)

3/4 bag of tator tots

Brown and drain hamb. then combine it with the two can of cream soup....put in that into your

9 X 13 spray pan, then sprinkle all the cheese (or line up all the sliced Velveeta across the pan), then line up all your tator tots . Cook @ 375 for 30 minutes.
Then I served up our favorite cake, Jello Cake! Also a very easy fix, which is what I LOVE to make.....Here is the recipe for that as well....
2 Boxes of Strawberry (any red berry jello work)
1 Box Vanilla instant Pudding
1 Box white (or yellow) Cake mix
1 container Cool Whip
Bake the Cake mix as directed..let it cool for 30 min. then poke holes all over the cake with a toothpick, Mix 1 cup of boiling water with 1 box of jello, after you mix it well add 1 cup of cold water and mix well again..pour that over the cold and refrigerate for 2-3 hours....mix up your instant pudding as directed and put it in the fridge in a separate bowl....after cooling in the fridge take the cake out; spread the pudding over the cake then top with the container of Cool Whip.

Here are the troop enjoying the eats...

So what' a girl to do with 3 EXTRA boys around??? Hang close to mom and play with the kittens!!
What little boys doesn't like "Pop-Its???" Remember these things that you throw down on the ground and they pop?? Our boys LOVE them!! A little pocket game I got a Walgreens with my Register Rewards Bucks..Shh don't tell Lance!! He also got 4 little Lego creation sets to put together....
The last few pics are of Lance on his actual birthday.....we celebrated with just "us" and you can see he was happy with the gifts we chose to get him...
