I have a birhday party to plan

Clifford was invited to a birthday party for a friend at school. A friend, he told me, who was making fun of him at school to the point he felt the need to go to the counsellor. Oh, but he still wants to go to the party....because he "really wants to go bowling". What?? No.

Instead, I've decided to dazzle both boys with a birthday party of their own, and save the money I would have spent on that other kid.

A little background:
The kids were cursed. As hard as I tried, I couldn't hold back and they were born 3 days before Christmas.
So sad.

And because their birthday is so close to Christmas, we've never been able to have a birthday party inviting all their friends because none of their friends would show up...because it's 3 days before Christmas.

So this year, Richard and I decided we should have a party for the kids since they're turning 10, we just need to have it a few weeks early so kids will actually show.

The choices:
1. Party at the house...upwards of 20 screaming kids in my house trashing the place because they can't be outside in the cold
2. Party at the local lasertag place...almost every birthday party the kids have attended has been held here. Not original, but reliable.
3. An awesome party at the International Spy Museum (!!!)...the kids would LOVE this...it's just expensive.

So we're leaning toward option 2. But what I REALLY want to give them is option 3.

Is it wrong to have your own fundraiser benefiting yourself? Karma scares me so I think I'll skip that one.

Time to get creative....time to call Nana.
