Tuesday, February 3rd was Aric's 10th birthday. His dad told him he could pick the restaurant he wanted to have his family party at (but he couldn't pick Mc*D's or Bur*ger Ki*ng - which would have probably been one he'd pick!!!!!) He selected Mi*mi's and we made reservations.
The birthday boy, Aric, with Grandpa Mickey, Dad Marc & Sister, Oksana.
Uncle Dave, Aunt Suzette, & Cousin Jessica.
As you know, Jessica rarely gets to join these family celebrations because of her work schedule but she actually had the night off and got to come. That made the night even extra special.
Benny, Aunt Jacque, and Cousin Jessica.
Trust me, Grandma Susan was very present....I just was taking all the pictures and didn't get it any.
I wanted to bake Aric's cake and on Monday I saw Tammy's, This Country Girl, post about making a birthday cake out of cupcakes for her daughter. I just loved the idea so that is what I did.
I had just shown his "10" to Aric.
The candles were letter's and I was able to place H-A-P-P-Y B-I-R-T-H on them.
This really worked well with the cake carrier to get them to the restaurant and then not having to cut a cake. Each of the 10 of us got a cupcake.
Here the wait staff is singing Happy Birthday to him.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ARIC
You are one of the JOYS of our life.
We LOVE you and so does JESUS!!!!!
