What more could a boy ask for on his birthday.....
Not only did Nick have the day off from school yesterday, thanks to M@rtin Luther K!ng.....around noon, it started to snow.....and I mean A LOT!!
I had intended to take the day off so we could spend it together, but unfortunately I had to go into Philadelphia this morning for an appointment that could not be changed. My parents kept the kids while I was gone and took them out for a special birthday lunch!!
By the time I made it back from the city, the snow was really starting to accumulate.....Sarah was down for a nap, so Nick, and I got bundled up and headed into the backyard for some fun in the snow.
Originally I was going to post some of my favorite photos of him that were taken over the last couple months, but thought it would be better to capture the essence of this very day so we could always remember it......
Rudy came out too....he loves the snow and had a blast chasing after the snowballs that Nick had launched across the yard!!
My favorite photo of the day.....this one is getting framed for sure:)
As requested by the birthday boy....we had fondue for dinner!! Nick made a great choice....we all enjoyed huddling around the kitchen island and dipping away!! We had so much fun, and are looking forward to our next fondue night. Nick has already suggested that next time we need to do a chocolate fondue!!
I think this picture is worth a thousand words.....they were both, not so patiently, waiting for me to finish cleaning up the dinner dishes so we could move on to the cake!! The kids picked the candles to put in the cake...the crayons were left over from Sarah's bday. Just in case you were wondering, the cake was as sinful as it looked.....it was really good...very rich, but good!
All in all, it was a fantastic day of fun and celebration.....we still have some more birthday things going on this week, so the fun is not over just yet!!
I had hoped to get this post out last night on his actual birthday, but we got a little caught up in the festivities and well, you know how it goes....a day late and a dollar short!! So officially, he is eleven years and one day old.....oh to be that young again.....
