Somehow Andy turned 15 last week! He opened his presents before school and was most excited about the jumbo pogo stick and the mashoonga sticks that he'd been asking for for 2 years. After school on Friday I took him and 7 friends bowling, then we came back to our house and they each made their own pizza. They played rock band on the Wii and arcarde basketball, then they all used the mashoonga sticks. I think every teenage boy should have a pair. In fact, that is what I am sending for Christmas this year...beware!
Andy started a tradition last year and for his cake and ice cream he has monkey bread and pink lemonade pie. Two of his very favorite things.
(Let me know if you want the recipes.)
The boys were going to watch a movie but one of his gifts was Mastermind and they started playing that and Othello. And suddenly it was time for them to go home. Parties get so much easier when the kids are older. I am sure thankful for my Andy! He is such a wonderful kid and a great example. Always helping others and making people feel welcome in any situation. Thanks for being so awesome!
