Back from France, Jonas is 5 and chicken pox is here....

We're back from vacation and reality hits us straight on. Returning on Wednesday evening, I had my hands full with preparations for Jonas' birthday party on Friday, laundry from 10 days on the road, shopping for groceries, cleaning a dirty house. Thank God, Sabine could babysit on Thursday!! And then just 30 minutes before the guests arrived for the party on Friday, we spot the little red blisters, first thought to be mosquito bites. Thankfully Jonas was feeling just fine, having just a few spots, so we decided to go ahead with the feast. We had great summery weather and temperature and stayed outside the hole time. The kids could decorate their own cup cakes, we had fruit salad and chocolate cake. We had a throwing competition, but really the kids didn't need any further animation at all. They were happily activating themselves. When we took out our rocket blaster to cool them down a bit, (a flying rocket sprinkling water around), we could just sit back and watch. If only all birthday party's were like that....
