He made his own decorations for the party and his parents spent a whole bunch on pizza.

But no one arrived and the boy's mom wrote a heartbreaking letter on her blog to all the parents that didn't RSVP.

The amazing thing is that since her blog post, only one parent actually got in touch and admitted that they had no reason for not RSVPing.


There is a happy ending here though - the nine-year-old got to celebrate his big day when the local fire department heard about his disappointing day and invited him and his family to the fire station for a visit and VIP treatment.

The picture below taken by Mahlon's mother Kirsten, shows him spending a day as a fireman
