celebrating david

July 7th | david, events

tuesday evening we bbq’d with some friends to celebrate david’s 9th birthday.

i made cupcakes it a jar that didn’t turn out quite right–but they were tasty! the jars i used were too big. next time, it would be better to smash the cupcake in–it will look cuter!

david got a plasma car for his birthday. he’s been using one at school on the playground and he’s getting really good at scooting around on it. he needs some help steering, though.

david loved opening gifts. he smiled the whole time. and he got some great loot!

thank you friends for celebrating david with us! it was a low-key and very special evening.

david, you rock! i’m so thankful for you. happy 9th {yikes!!} birthday!

    tell me more about the cupcakes in a jar. do you bake them in there? or just drop ’em in when they’re done? never seen these before.

    Okay, I never comment, but here are two comments in a row. Don’t you love plasma cars? My daughter has a pink one, and luckily, we got two, so when she has a friend over, they can race around the kitchen, into the hall, and living room, and back around. I never let the go outside, so they stay fairly clean, and they go like gangbusters on hardwood. Sometimes I even get on one myself, because they are super-fun!
