A very generous coworker of mine offered to work for me on Jake's birthday so I got to stay home with him. We didn't do anything too exciting that day, as I recall. (It's almost a month ago now! I'm behind on posting!)
I made him a special waffle breakfast that looks like an ice cream cone (thanks, pinterest, for the idea!) and we just hung out and played. I think he wanted to watch movies all day and since it was his birthday he got to be the boss. We had both sets of grandparents over in the evening to watch him open his birthday presents. He had already had his party but wanted to wait to open his big gift from us. He also had a friend who couldn't make it to his party and who gave him a gift later and he opened that as well. From us he got a new fish tank and supplies and a coupon to pick out some fish. From Brianna he got a cool dinosaur that he loves. We had planned to have the tacos and ice cream sundaes for dessert but we ran out of time. We had to meet my sister in law at the funeral home for a Chrsitmas tree lighting in honor of my nephew who passed away in May. We ended up stopping at both Subway (for Jake) and McDonald's (for the rest of us) for dinner and ate a birthday dinner in the back of Matt's van in the parking lot. We sure do know how to make birthdays special! ;-) Even so, I think Jake ended up having a pretty good day!
