Super Six!

Six years ago this little guy came and changed our lives forever. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.So for this year I wanted it to be as simple as possible since I didn’t know what my schedule was going to be like. Sure enough I got another project but luckily I was able to squeeze in Evan’s boys-only Spy themed birthday party.

Evan thought of the Spy theme way back in March, long before McDonald’s came out with it’s Spy Gear Happy Meals.

I saw a photo of this cake on the internet and I knew I had to make it. What I didn’t know was the amount of butter and egg (whites only) I needed. I was nervous at the possibility of flopping because what a waste of ingredients it would be.

Fortunately, I made it work. It had the tastiest and fluffiest frosting too. No more powdered sugar frosting in the future for me, thank you very much.

On his real birthday I went over to his school to bring ice cream and Pirate Booty chips for his birthday celebration.

The pre-packaged ice cream in a cone was such a hit with his classmates that I got hugs from probably 8 students. Even the teachers (his class has 2 teacher assistants) loved it saying the size was just perfect for the kids. I guess the poor children are tired of the usual cupcakes. I’ve seen a lot of them wasted, with just the frosting being eaten, that I knew I had to bring something different.

After school, I took him to his swim class, then to the comic books store where he got to pick 2, then to our favorite nearby restaurant. We capped his special day with a visit to the beach (the above photo was taken around 7:45pm). I asked him why he was taking his comic book to the beach. He told me, he just wanted to read and relax.

Indeed what an exciting day it has been for him. And for us too.

    Congrats on Evan’s birthday! I’m sure you feel like me and that there is no way six years have gone by!

    I should have gotten your message sooner. My wife made some delicious cupcakes to take to school for LA’s birthday (celebrated in May since school will be over by June 1rst) but LA said that most of the kids threw theirs in the trash. She was in tears. Fortunately at that age she was still easy to distract and it has long since been forgotten. Next year though we will have to be doing something else.

    Happy b/day Evan! Enjoy being 6. He’s funny. He already has a concept of relaxing on the beach reading, I wonder where he gets this idea (wink).

    This also means I’ve been reading your blog longer than 6 years. I started reading it before you were even preggy with Evan :)

    Ed, aw, I feel bad for Little Abbey. You know, it must be that age where they are not interested in food. Two of my little guests at home were not eating at all, they just wanted to play. Evan even didn’t want to eat the cake because he just wanted to join them, but I forced him to sit down and take a bite of my much labored cake and he ended up finishing every bite.

    Loraine, he is a sweet kid. Still asks for a kiss in school even with his classmates around =)

    MC, glad you are sticking around even with my erratic blogging and my mommy stories hahaha
