Spencer turns 12!

We've got this birthday party thing down to a science after many years of hosting the same type of thing, only the food changes and the kids get taller! This year we made a punch that Spencer enjoys at our neighbor's, the Hagman's, Christmas party. It's: frozen lemonade concentrate, orange sherbet, almond extract, and gingerale. But if you are a 12-year-old boy, you eschew a punch bowl for a more manly orange igloo cooler!

Thursday we'd had a potluck lunch at work and it included a homemade ice cream cake that was made using layered ice cream sandwiches and various toppings. Spencer created his own ice cream cake masterpiece and it was a huge hit.

Breakfast was pancakes, sausage, bacon, and fruit salad....with more punch.

In between all the eating came a lot of Wii, Xbox, air hockey, games, running around, and watching TV. We all stayed up way too late!! Here's the food chronology of the party!!!
