Happy Birthday Joshua

It's been all about Joshua this week as we celebrated his 9th birthday. Wow. Nine.

Having a birthday on a school day isn't easy for anyone but we tried to live it up as much as possible...apparently with food. 

His first request was for breakfast in bed. I'm proud to say I was able to fulfill the eggs, bacon and toast order before I left at 7:00 a.m. (Really, this was a HUGE accomplishment!).

The second birthday request was for ice cream at Ted & Wally's. Joshua was hoping for bacon ice cream again, but it was not to be. He thoroughly enjoyed the chocolate chip and walnut cookie + Dutch chocolate double scoop instead. 

The third request was sushi which is, of course, something we all loved. I'm still not sure if he chose this for himself or because he knows we all like it so much but it was delicious.

Here are some photos of the day...

I  have to display the Harry Potter snitch cake before the wings started to droop. Much easier to make than the first request of a 3-D Hogwarts castle which I had to veto. I love you Joshua but I'm not taking a personal day to make a cake. :)
 Thankfully, someone noticed my mistake before we lit the candles...
How old are you?


  1. Wish it would have worked out to eat some cake. :) Could you bring me breakfast in bed on my birthday???? :)
