I can't wait to see what God has planned for you Jedi, you are a great kid and we are blessed!
This is the dessert he picked, it's Christine's recipe! Ice cream sandwiches layered in a cake pan, covered with whipped topping and toffee bits, then put into the freezer. We made a double layer batch, but you can also single layer it. This dessert does not taste like ice cream sandwiches, it tastes more homemade than that! He didn't want a "theme" birthday this year...he's growing up! (Oops, something happened to the finished product...it's up there, way above this part of the post....I can never get them to line up side by side....)
I always make the kiddos home-made cards and I was up way too late making this one, but I think it fits his personality perfectly, goofy letters talking! I also blew up 30 balloons and put them in his room to surprise him this morning!
This is one of his cards from Ballerina Rosie, it just warmed my heart, on the front she wrote "Happy Gloden Birthday!" (golden) She spent all her money (except 10% she gave to church) to buy him 2 Bionicles. She insisted and couldn't wait to go buy them for him.
I love the love he gets from his sisters, he is so very blessed to have 4 little sisters!
He has a friend coming today to play and we have company tonight for supper....so I'm off!
Love, love, love. It's a special day!
