Lamest Birthday Ev-er
Caious turned 10 years old today. He celebrated by . . . going to school, doing his chores, playing with his friends . . . basically having a normal day.
Bill was out of state so we had a very low-key day.
Caious did get to have the dinner of his choice:
Cheeseburgers (with processed american cheese - yuck!),
Oven baked french fries (made from home-grown purple potatoes out of my garden) and
Corn on the cob (from Grandpa Buddy - yum)
The children made their burgers into faces.
They were very proud to display their creations.
After birthday cake (also supplied by Buddy - thanks), Caious opened his gifts. A handsome shirt and the Lego set he had been hoping for from Grandma and Grandpa in Phoenix.
And then he opened the cards full of cash. Lots of cash. He is very excited to have so much money. I think he should save it. He plans to buy video games and a Nintendo DS. Good thing I have veto power over his purchases.
When Bill gets back to town, he and Caious will pick out a new bike. Caious already had his celebration: he and his dad took a few friends to see Wall-E. All in all it was a good birthday.
Happy Birthday Caious!
