Who the heck says stuff like "twas"? Sorry.
We had a very nice 5th birthday around these parts.
It started with the brothers getting a lecture from parents about being super nice to the little dude. And I have to say, they were really nice all day long. Made me proud.
Littlest came downstairs to find the house strung with hearts and dots (in his favorite colors). He was pretty impressed, but wondered where the chocolate cake was.
Luckily, he got distracted by playing video games with his brothers. (Yes, oldest is wearing stripes and plaid. He thinks they look good together, regardless of what I keep telling him.)
Then, a nice lunch of pasta carbonara (Dad's specialty). The rest of us had some salad also, but birthday boy was having none of it. And he was excused, this being his special day and all.
Then off to the Lego store. Apparently, parents are not to be trusted with purchasing of presents. He wanted to be around to supervise.
Oh look, it's Lego Boba Fett.
There was also a stop at Best Buy to get Lego Harry Potter for the Nintendo DS. Have you detected a Lego obsession yet?
Then home, where mac 'n' cheese (with four cheeses and a crunchy top, mind you) was made and eaten. Sorry, no photos.
Then the big boys surprised him with more (guess!) Legos!
That thing he is wearing on his head? Not a party hat. It was a paper cone filled with little presents. It was hung on his doorknob. That's why his name is upside down. But his brothers forced it onto his head. Oh well.
And finally, the cake! It didn't look all that nice, but it was divine. Trust me. I don't even like chocolate (please no heckling), and I loved this cake.
He said something about being his birthday, therefore it was OK for him to touch the cake. Uh-huh. And yes, I did indeed make a template with his name and polka dots (yeah, Quicktuz and punches!).
We finished off the day with some loving from the parentals. I think he was pretty happy with the way things turned out.
And another birthday goes by. Sniff.
