Just for fun, we started adding up the calories of the candy that he received from his friends. When we got to about 25,000, we stopped. I hope he shares or makes them last a very long time. He got other gifts, but I think his favorite was probably the one from us, a brand new shiny red bicycle!
He has grown so fast, he needed a new one. We jumped right to a 24" this time hoping that it might last him for a couple of years. He loves to ride and this is his first bike with actual gears so he can go very fast.
|Scout said she didn't help blow out the candles, but I think we have proof right here!|
Beauty and The Beast gave him the most fun to open gift; 9 kinds of candy/donuts wrapped over and over in plastic wrap and I think some clear tape. It took him at least 5 minutes to free them all.
My sweetie made BBQ chicken, one of the favorite foods of nearly all of my kids, baked potatoes, zucchini, and fresh peaches. I told you yesterday I made the cake. Curly wanted a zebra cake so I made one yellow and one chocolate and then poured them in concentric circles. It did look sort of like a zebra. But he was way more excited about the light-up football that was his cake topper.
Only one more birthday for August and that is my sweetie. At least he never hopes for a friend party...
