Night Turns Five!

Night turned 5 this past Wednesday. Of all the possible things he could do to celebrate, he decided he wanted to go to IHOP. Alrighty!!

As is tradition in my lil family, we woke Night up* by singing Happy Birthday to him with a candle-lit muffin. Since the muffins usually end up half-eaten (I guess the presents are a bit of a distraction), I decided to be conservative and buy MINI-muffins-one for each of us. That'd be perfect, right-we were going out for breakfast after all...


But Josh then informed me that mini muffins don't have enough surface area to allow for safety. The candle melted all over Josh's hand when Night blew it out!!
Oops.



This was the one thing he wished for... (thanks to his nerdy Dad, Night is a huge Star Wars geek)

Keira gets one present (Night got about 5) because presents are fun for everyone!

After opening up presents, it was off to IHOP, where they were celebrating HORTON HEARS A WHO.



Beezlenut juice (sprite with jello chunks-surprisingly gross...) and Who cakes with green eggs and ham!

Then we went to the park for cake. Cakes, actually. You can never have too much sugar on your birthday.


We had a great day, it is hard to believe he is five already!!







*Yes, Night sleeps on the couch. We only have two bedrooms, and the kids kept waking each other up when they shared a room, so now he has his own room...

Happy birthday Night. Perhaps for your next birthday you could wish for a trip to Australia to be an adventurer like your mum!

Wow...the Who stuff sounds...yeah. Surprisingly gross. :-)

Thanks for your comment on my blog! If the "craftiness" of spray starch and fabric doesn't work for you, give me a holla!

The cakes are really cute! Are they little cats?

Aren't they adorable? They are dogs- each one has two cupcakes as the base, and the rest is FROSTING! The bakery that I work for makes them. Yummy!!

Is that his real name, because we LOVE it!!!! My son will be 5 this summer. How time flies!

Mari said...

Yep-it is the real thing! It is actually his middle name, but his first name (Connor) is so common, it is easier (and much cooler, I might add) to call him Night!!
