(belated) Birthday Post

I'm a little late on documenting McG's 12th birthday, but as they say "better late than never".

We celebrated his birthday week, really. He wanted to go to the Japanese restaurant for his special dinner, so we took out a 2nd mortgage on the house and went out on Monday night since I had to work on his birthday and the rest of the week was too packed full of extra curricular activities.

But... I ended up not having to work on his birthday after all so we were able to celebrate in style!

He didn't want a birthday cake this year (THE HORROR) but wanted Kr*spy Kreme donuts instead. I wasn't a bit happy that I wasn't going to be able to eat my weight in birthday cake icing and what's worse is that donuts don't fit through my lap band so basically I was rewarded nothing for painfully delivering a 9# 5oz baby boy 12 years ago!

He was happy, though!
After THEY ate donuts, it was time for presents.
Hide your eyes!!

I bet you didn't guess he got......


Nothing makes him more happy!

Here he is with his loot.

Keep in mind the gazillions of Lego's he got for Christmas. And I'm not even going to mention the sets he got earlier that day with his birthday money from Grandma and Grandpap and Pics and Gramps!!!

Not to be outdone, Little Sister hid her eyes for her present as well.

What is it?

Hooray!! A Jessie keychain!

Ahhhh Krispy Kreme donuts...a boy after my own heart! Looks like he made out with the leggos! Glad he had a great B-day!

I love his cake idea. I'm even more impressed that you were able to fit that many candles on it! :)

Happy Birthday, McG!

And, congrats on a beautiful baby boy, Mrs. Bird!

Poor Lilah. All she got was that crappy keychain! haha. I think I might want birthday Krispy Kremes for my birthday too. I know McG had a great b'day and he sure can make some neat things with his Legos. He's a genius at them.
