Dyl is double 1's!
Second bday request was dinner at Red Robin...you'd think it was because of the food, but it was most definitely the bottomless root beer floats! He actually only had two because he also got a free sundae for his bday. Plus he had another pizza (3rd pizza in the last 24 hours!)...and all of it was free thanks to a Christmas gift card. Free is great! And below is the cake festivities. So grateful he picked an easy cake for his mama to make (and if you can't tell what it is, I've been told this is Minecraft). No idea how this game works, but it looks sorta like an amped up Tetras to me?! Anyway...he was happy with it and I was happy that I could use week-old fondant from Lo's party...otherwise this would have never been completed last night after returning from NYC. LOL...I love his serious candle face in the bottom pic...and Shelby singing away....she was doing a rendition of the Hailey bday hair burning...yelling at him not to burn his hair. Funny. Hailey would have thought so :) Sadly the night went downhill...Logan broke Dylan's NYC gift I picked out for him at Dylan's Candy store. Shattered it on the fireplace after I had told him to not touch anything. Then the sword broke in the cake (made out of white choc)...glad I had gotten a pic before dinner. I had a feeling. And the kicker of the evening is we discovered Shelb had lice...and probably has had it for a week or more. So, yes, that meant taking sheets off of beds and shampooing everyone's hair and picking through her hair for an hour. If you have 4 kids and have done this, you will know this is when a mom wants to cry. (sadly I have had to do this twice before when Hailey was still with us) I did want to cry. I was already going on a few hours of sleep so this really stunk. But I am trying to focus on the positives and not the evening negatives. I think D had a pretty good bday...and up until the "comedy of errors" he seemed pretty happy with double 1's!
