Jake actually did very well. A lot of his guests were saying to him, "Wait until you see what I got you. It's sooooooooo cool!" during his party. He was so excited, he barely got his coat off before he was trying to decide which gift to open first.
That reminds me, I have to get started with helping Jake write his thank you cards. He has real big boy cards this year . . . none of those fill-in-the-blank cards.
