Friday was Little Chris's (both my sisters have sons named Christopher. Big Chris is 29 and Little Chris is 12 as of last Friday) birthday. Little Chris has a big personality and LOVES being in the center of attention. He loved getting all the phone calls and Facebook notes from friends and family wishing him a happy b-day. Every time our home phone rang he'd yell, "is it for me?" We never answer our home phone and I don't think anyone even has the number! Below are pictures of his b-day celebration. Later that night Rick (his Dad) took only him to see a movie. They ended up making it a double feature and Chris loved getting only time with his Pops. All in all he had a great birthday even though he didn't have a party with his friends.
Sarah and I (with minimal help from Ben) made him a cake
He asked for a specific dollar amount on a gift card to get a particular game he wanted. Since he knew what he was getting Sarah made it fun and sent him on a scavenger hunt to find his gift. The first clue sent him to our back bathroom.
Second clue took him to our backyard where a box was hidden in the tree
Everyone followed him to the front to find the 4th clue in our mailbox
C, Val and Rick (my wonderful BIL who graciously watched Caroline while Sarah, Val and I went on a couple errands for stuff for Chris' bday celebration.)
Ben and Chris opening the 4th clue that sent them to C's bedroom. (Notice how tall Ben has gotten all the sudden!)
And finally, opening his present!
Caroline wanted to be in the middle of the action so she sat on the birthday boy's lap!
Sarah sang Happy Birthday to Ben instead of Chris. Chris couldn't believe his own mother would mess up on his birthday song!
We put candles that don't blow out on his cake (Hehehe ;-)!
The rainbow cake we made. It came out pretty cool with all the different colors.
