Ty has definitely had a LONG Birthday celebration this year. His actual birthday was on Thursday, November 18, but his party was not going to be until Friday the 26th. So he woke up Thursday morning to signs and streamers on his door, had a #6 pancake, took cupcakes to school, got to pick out a prize at school, went skating after school, went to a hockey game Friday night, saw Megamind, Saturday, his Korean Sunday School teacher bought him a cake for Sunday school, then on Friday, he had his much anticipated hockey party!! All of this while continuing to say, "It's my birthday..so can I pick....?" After all of that he is officially 6!!!!!! I can not believe how quickly the time has flown by. I feel like I was just holding him in the hospital and now he's in Kindergarten, and 6!!!
Picking out his prize at school, which he was SO excited about!!
Ty standing by his cupcakes, while the class sings "Happy Birthday" short story on the cupcakes: I had made homemade confetti cupcakes, that Ty and Emma had helped with the night before. Emma came down to Ty's class before we passed them out to get one. As I was getting her one, the glass container fell and busted on the floor, ruining the majority of the cupcakes, so I had to RUN to Safeway to pick up some more. Ty handled it great and his only request was that they be decorated :)
Some of the gifts from PaPa and MiMi that were left to open. Everything else Ty got for his bday from family had to be given early b/c it was all hockey stuff and he needed it right away. So for a month, we have been saying, "this is from so and so for your birthday, but you need it now" :)
Ty had 2 requests for his cake. 1)that it be made with candy. 2)that it have strawberry cake on the inside. Both seem like pretty reasonable requests, and the first I could definitely do, however, the great city of Vancouver does not sell Strawberry cake mix!!! In fact, when I asked my Canadian friend Melissa, she said she'd never heard of it!! So, thankfully, Lyndsey rescued us and was going down to the States on Tuesday before his party and got me 2 mixes!! Thanks Lyndsey, you made his day extra special :)
