October Recap...

October was a very very busy month for us!!
We said goodbye to our foster sons, Riley ran in a race downtown Paso, we went to the pumpkin patch to pick out the perfect pumpkin, Riley had his birthday and birthday party and it was all topped off with Halloween!!
I have to say Riley's bday party was a blast this year. For those of you who know me, it comes as no surprise to hear how much I love to plan parties, especially kids parties. Riley is so into Star Wars that I knew that would be our theme this year, and we went all out!! His invites told people that they had to come to Jedi Training Academy so they could defend the universe against Darth Vader. When the kids arrived, they each got a Jedi robe with the Jedi Training Academy logo on it. Ryan was a Jedi Master and directed the kids in each activity. First they colored star wars pics while waiting for everyone to arrive. Then they completed a Star Wars trivia contest and did an obstacle course and received their own light saber. After that, we had a surprise visit from Darth Vader (Ryan) and each child was able to challenge him to a duel. Vader left announcing that the Jedi had won!! We ate pizza, had cake and opened gifts before presenting each of the kids with a laminated certificate saying they had passed the Jedi Training Academy and were now considered Galactic Heroes. They LOVED it!!!! I don't know how I am going to top it next year...
