Yesterday was Ryders birthday and we had a blast! I hadn't planned anything because mostly, I spaced that it was the 20th. Yeah...negligent mom moment. I feel crappy about it. But still. It turned out to be a super fun night for Ryder and all of us I think. I had a good time anyway! After work me and the boys went to Lins to pick out a cake. And bought some skittles to decorate. I think I'm going to make that a new tradition for the family because the boys all had so much fun! Addy even got in on the fun and added her own personal touch on the cake...by way of scooping a fistful of frosting off! :) Then we went to Grandma and Grandpas house to wait for everyone to come. I tried to get Ryder to tell me what he wanted to eat and his response was "Food" which was obviously not helpful. So I asked him what kind of food and he said "Chicken Nuggets". Progress! So I asked him where...and he said "An airplane". Digression (is that a word? it is now). So he wanted chicken nuggets on an airplane. We decided on Wingers. Close enough right?! Dinner was great. All the family was there except Tony and the Alaskan crew (sadly...we missed you!). Then we went back to Grandma and Grandpas for cake and presents. Ryder LOVED being able to sing and was singing to himself while we sang! He wasn't so interested in eating the cake so we opened presents. His favorite present ever is the firetruck that Tony, Valena, Mel and Addy gave! He slept with it all night and it was very hard to pry it from his fingers at daycare this morning. So thank you all soooo very much for coming to the spur of the moment party, we appreciate your love and kindness and really had a good time!
