Porter's 9th Birthday

Porter's 9th birthday was awesome.  I overheard one of the party guest tell Porter "This is the best party ever!".  My mom planned to come for the party and we loved having her and all of her ideas available.  Porter wanted to do a sports themed party and she had a great idea of doing a hot dog bar for dinner.  It was totally awesome!  I don't know if you can tell from the picture but there were different recipes of hot dogs to try.  There was the Philly Cheese Dog, the Detroit Dog, the Plain Jame Dog, the Nacho Dog, the Atlanta Dog and the Kansas City Dog.  In all actuality it was probably wasted on the kids but I LOVED IT!
The party guests.  We kind of buckled down this year and allowed him to invite only a few friends.  He invited two from church and two from school.  Luckily everyone showed up.  Porter was thrilled.
We had several sport related games planned, the most popular game was defiantly table top football.  Casey makes one studly ref.
Bennett was much more into the soda than the games (whats new).
Porter was a total cheese ball during the singing of the happy birthday song. 
Happy Birthday P-Town.  We are so happy to have you in our family and we are grateful that you are such a wonderful example to you little brothers and sisters.  It's so fun to see your personality continue to develop.  As an 8 year old some of the things you enjoyed were - Scouts, Football, Breakfast Casserole,  Sing Off, Spending Time with siblings, Americas Funniest Home Videos, Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream From ZESTOS, Drawing Football Players, Playing Basketball, Playing with your friends in the neighborhood, Poppy Pancakes, Sport Jerseys, Sideways Stories from Wayside School (book), Math, Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal, Columbus Blue Jacket Hockey Games, and spending time with family (mostly cousins and grand parents).
