General chatter - Plan B for a Birthday Party -- HELP!!!

12-11-2009, 12:45 PM
My son's 6th birthday party is tomorrow. We bought him a trampoline for his birthday and have borrowed a blow-up slide/moon jump. Problem -- the forcast has changed from 40% chance of rain to 100% chance of rain, with a possibility of sleet. I am so bummed! We have about 12 kids coming at noon tomorrow. What are we going to do with 12 kids in the house? I don't have a crafty bone in my body. Not even one. Please help me with ideas.

:coach: RUN! CHELBY RUN!!

Seriously...If I were you I'd just stick with your food and cake/goodies out and rent or buy a couple of those "action" movies the kids like at that age...go on-line to find some silly 6 year old games to play....then...

sit back...enjoy.... and watch to see kids...especially 6 year old boys...can still have fun w/o big blow up jumping toys!

Oh...and NO JUMPING off the couch! ;)

Plan C... Auston just got sent home from school with 102.3 temp and throwing up. The party is cancelled and rescheduled for next Saturday. Hopefully the weather will be better.

:( Poor Auston.
I hope the sun shines for you next weekend.

Poor baby! Poor mama, too. That's tough. Good luck next weekend! My baby turns 7 on Thursday and it's tough to plan birthday parties this time of year.

Auston's birthday is Dec. 17, too. I've considered having an alternate party on June 17. It is hard having a party this time of the year.

He threw up all night long. He was really pitiful. He hasn't been sick since 4:15 this morning. Hopefully, he's on the upswing... and that he hasn't shared with his dad and me.
