Thursday was Thomas' 8th birthday, a mere 6 days after Mark's 42nd birthday. More cake. And pizza. Started out the day with pancakes for the birthday boy, then he was allowed to open one present (still obsessed with Toy Story)
Then off to school, where in the afternoon I brought in YUMMY chocolate-buttermilk cupcakes frosted with buttercream/cream cheese icing, decorated with Ghirardelli chocolate. mmmmmm. (I am willing to share my recipe if anyone wants it. I've been told more than once that is is the "best cupcake they ever ate")
Singing happy birthday- that's the student teacher in his class
With Mrs. Shuman, his teacher (both with mouths full of cupcake :) )
With his friend Lindsey:
Later, after school and baseball for Matthew and basketball for Leah Kate, we headed to Basils for Thomas' favorite things- pizza and eating out!
Then finally we headed home for birthday cake and presents :)
Doing the excited birthday dance :)
Okay, birthday season is over at our house... hopefully I'll be on the mend soon and will post some more running stuff!
