Anthony's Day

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANTHONY!!!
Despite a previous nite of tons of rain and wind the big birthday party was still on. Jenn and John again outdid themselves in the wow factor of pulling together a CSI mystery party. "POKEMAN MISSING"
Each boy was sent an invitation in the CSI envelope. Jenn put together little packages of math problems for the boys to solve. When they had completed correctly their math problems they had to decode the numbers into letters and put the letters into words to form the clues. Lots of fun for the boys. After the first set of clues, they moved to the autopsy room for another set of clues. She made a brain mold and put scrabble pieces in the jello. Each boy was then given the "scapel" to dissect a portion of the brain. Let me tell you how much boys enjoy the gory details of cutting up the brain. Once they had that mission accomplished the final clues had to be gotten by rubbing graphite over a card. Each boy had a letter and then it formed the word. Finally they put all the clues together and figured out the dinoseaur had the pokeman cards in his mouth in the closet.
All I can say is 7 boys = high noise level, high energy level

Anthony 7 today!!!
