L turned 9 on Wednesday. He wanted an apple pie for his birthday, but when he decided to invite a family from church over to help him celebrate his day I decided to make mini cupcakes (or pupcakes as M calls them) just in case 1 apple pie wasn't enough for 12 people.
He had a Star Wars theme, in honor of the only present he really wanted, Lego Star Wars for the Wii. Actually, he really wanted Rock Band for the Wii, but that was a bit out of our price range.
He requested a simple breakfast of Quaker Chewy Granola Bars, McDonald's for lunch (Cr came home and ate with us), and Little Ceasar's Pizza for dinner. Our friends came over to celebrate and we had a wonderful evening getting to know them better while all of the kids played.
He spent the day with his brothers having a Star Wars movie marathon (I think they watched 3 total). His day ended playing Lego Star Wars on the Wii. He also received 2 Lego Star Wars kits, a cap rifle & pistol, a bow and arrow (one to pretend with-not a real one), a pair of handcuffs (again, pretend-while I was willing to get him a real beginner bow and arrow, I would not get him a pair of real handcuffs. Ever.), and a backyard baseball set (now he won't have to come in and try to talk me into giving him plates for bases).
And yes, in the picture of L blowing out the candles, you can see one of our toilets in the background. Nice, huh?
