What a fun day!

What a great birthday Kyler had! He started with breakfast with grandma and grandpa who then dropped him off at school. I had forgotten to get or make something for him to take to share with his friends at school so Todd stopped and got some Spider-Man snacks at the store and dropped them off for him. His class sang him Happy Birthday while he was at the board and I'm told that made him embarrassed as did the baby picture on my blog yesterday...oops! When he got home he did all his homework straight away so that he didn't have to do any reading before bed. He just played and played in the afternoon. The kids get to choose what they have for their birthday dinners and he wanted Mexican (I couldn't believe he didn't choose pizza!). When we asked him what he wanted from the Mexican place he said nachos so we suggested we could make them at home and it would be just as yummy. So that is what we did. Todd is, usually, a genius in the kitchen and we all had individual portions of melted cheese and we could add taco meat, black olives, and salsa to if we wanted. Then we just had our favorite tortilla chips with it...SO stinkin' yummy! Lastly, well...lastly he played with his toys for awhile but before that we had cake. A Spider-Man cake. Very yummy! Thank you for all your wonderful birthday wishes for Kyler yesterday he very much appreciated them!

The card I made for him is above. It isn't super fancy but I was told he loves it when I make his card so I think he was happy with it...in as much as opening it allowed him to get onto opening presents! The designer paper is Basic Gray's Cupcake. Interestingly enough there are no sheets with cupcakes on them...weird! Green being his favorite color is why I chose a green base and the two green pennants for the number 10. The stamp set is PaperTrey Ink's It's A Celebration. That is really a fun set to use! It certainly is a busy card, huh?

Well, the kiddos will be up soon so I need to get moving. Have a super Thursday! See you all tomorrow!
