A Christmas Party for Jordan

Jordan got invited to his friend Faith’s house for a Christmas Party today. He has been looking forward to it for weeks and as soon as he was up he got dressed so he was ready to go to the party. After a bit of struggle to get out of the driveway and cul-de-sac, Jordan and I were off to the Fitch’s house for the afternoon. Jordan went as Faith’s guest and I went as a helper and guest of Faith’s mom, Ede.

Once we finally arrived, it was lunchtime and Jordan headed for the air hockey table while everyone else ate pizza. After that, we started cracking open the Gingerbread Houses and whipping up the icing. All was going well, with all the houses assembled at least, when the boys challenged the girls to a snowball fight and attention shifted outside to all the snow.

Jordan chose to enter into the activity in an unusual way. Once the girls were beat headed inside, Jordan went to the picture window where the bigger boys were still fighting it out with Ede in the backyard.

This was a perfect way for Jordan to participate in the snow activities. He got all the joy and none of the cold. He could even be hit with snowballs without any complaint. Loved it!

In between the window snowballs, Ede took on the boys and she was amazing! Her  tolerance was so much higher than mine would have been (I was more than happy to stand inside and take photos out the window as well – Jordan and I are well matched!).

An unofficial timeout... that didn't last long!

Without a word, the words were clear. Game on, let the snow fly!

 Once Faith had had enough outside, she joined Jordan inside knocking on the window.

Hit me, hit me!

Hit me, hit me!

And Cameron delivers! I love the look on the kids' faces as they await the arrival of this in-flight snowball.

It got really bad for Ede before she finally called it a day – and she still had a houseful of kids! If she’s feeling it later, I know why!

Ede dished it out so well that soon the boys showed no mercy either. It went back and forth like this for quite some time. Jordan enjoyed the whole thing from the window.

What a fun time! I’m so thankful Jordan got invited to this party and that we could make it inspite of the abundant snow.
