The Social Event of the Season...

...if you're a first-grader in Niskayuna, anyway.

We've got 10-15 elementary school kids who are supposed to descend upon our house a bit before lunchtime. Morituri te salutamus...

SteelyKid's birthday party invitation. SteelyKid's birthday party invitation.

Kidding aside, it's worth it, because SteelyKid is awesome, and she's super excited to have a whole mob of her friends over. I just hope the rain holds off, because I don't know where we'll put everybody if it doesn't...
