I'm TEN today!
OK, I'm almost a week late in posting this, but when you are the youngest of 4...sometimes birthday blog posts may get delayed a bit. He hasn't had his birthday party yet, either!
Anyway...my baby turned TEN last Wednesday! How did that happen so quickly? He said not long ago "Mom, would you please have another baby, 'cause I'm tired of being the youngest and getting picked on all the time!" Ummmm....NO!
He took popcorn snack mix to school for his treat. Popcorn, Honeycomb, Honey Nut Cheerios, raisins, chocolate chips and marshmallows tossed in a bowl, and topped with melted white almond bark. YUM!
After school was midweek, and after that...yay for Grandma Marge! She asked him what kind of cake he wanted. "Brown cake and brown frosting!" so after midweek the entire family headed over to Grandma Marge and Grandpa Richard's for ice cream, cake AND cookies!
Caleb and Cameron enjoyed a rousing game of dominos with Grandpa Richard!
Then, Rachel and Ethan joined in for the next game.
Then, Grandma, Katie and Rachel got the candles on the cake and the platter of cookies. NO one makes chocolate chip cookies like Grandma Marge!
Ethan got to light his own candles. And he did it without burning any fingers!
all TEN of them...lit and ready to go.
look at that yummy, beautiful cake! And that wonderfully handsome TEN year old!
it takes a lot of air to blow out all those candles!
Caleb and Cameron helped with the "un" decorating of the cake.
Happy Birthday, Ethan!
and Thanks Grandma and Grandpa for making it a special day for him!
We love you!
