So on each of our kids' birthdays, we make them their favorite dinner & let them open presents from family members. Usually their friend party is on a weekend, so it's fun to have a mini-party together as a family.
For his birthday dinner, Bladen chose lasagne, homemade bread, Caesar salad, & apple slices. He's definitely a boy. He's going to eat me out of house & home pretty soon.
|My friend (whom he calls Fancy Nancy), sent him a Super Hero Squad|
Chutes & Ladders game as well as a dinosaur book.
|Mamoo sent him a Fred Action Figure|
|Mimi & Baba sent him the Metalbeard|
Lego set from the Lego Movie.
|Auntie Cari & Uncle Justin sent him some|
Bladen is just now getting into legos & is having a blast with them. This set that my parents got him were kind of hard to build (even for me), but they were SO cool. I don't know what kind of geniuses they have working at Lego, but these are almost works of art when they're all put together.
|Fancy Nancy also sent him lots of new clothes.|
|Cadence used her saved up money to buy him|
a Batman lego playset.
|And Opa & Oma sent him some fun action figures.|
|Grandma Kinsfathers sent him $10 to spend on whatever he|
wanted. . . aka a stop at the ice cream truck every day for 10 days.
|All the siblings got him the double decker couch Lego set|
from the Lego Movie. He really wanted this set because it
had ALL the Lego Movie characters in it. He LOVES playing
with the Lego people.
|Trek & I got him Big Hero 6. He's been wanting|
it for a while now.
|And Lorien used her money to get him some Hulk hands. I|
was thrilled because I got to use them for his party later in the
week. I'm so lucky to have such sweet kids who love each other.
