Michael's Alien Birthday!

 This year was the first year that we got to celebrate Michael's birthday with him since he only joined our family last October.  He wanted an alien party.  That's harder to do than I thought it would be.

First, he played laser tag and went bowling with his friends.  Then they came home and made aliens out of green playdough.  Surprisingly, the boys all loved this part and the fact that they got to keep the playdough.
 Then they had an alien football cake.  When it was dark, they went outside to throw a flying saucer Frisbee into hula hoop targets that we pretended were planets.  The Frisbee glowed and had flashing lights.  It was very cool.  Then they played inside with glow sticks and flashlights until it was bedtime.

But the drama didn't end there.  One of Michael's guests, "A", doesn't handle sleepovers well.  After several hours of phone calls to his parents and trying to sleep, he went home around 2am.  It was a very long night.  But Michael said it was the best party ever, so I'm calling it a success.
