Happy Birthday Charlie!
Today my oldest boy Charlie turns 9 years old. WOW it doesn't seem possible my boys are getting BIG. Not only is Charlie getting big but he is also maturing so much! We celebrated his birthday yesterday. We gave him a Slot Car race track that we ordered online. He went to all the work of putting it together only to find the track didn't work. I could tell that Charlie was very bummed - he didn't cry or even pout about it - Amazing, my little man!! I offered to take him to a store and let him pick out a small gift. He ended up picking out a Nerf Gun and then he asked if we could also get one for his brother. So all turned out well - my boys ran around the house yelling and shooting each other, and the Online store is going to exchange the broken Slot Car track!
I made the 'Monster' cake myself. I was inspired by this cake (see original post). This was the fist time I made or eaten Cake Pops. Is it just me - or do they all taste terrible? My boys didn't even want to eat them. Anyway, I was pleased at how well the Monster turned out, and Charlie loved his cake. Little brother Henry has already put his order in for a green Monster cake for his birthday.
