And here's the icecream cake. It turned out really yummy. That's a yellow cake w/chocolate icecream sandwiched in the middle, iced with homemade whipped cream and topped with brownie crumbs, hot fudge sauce and chocolate cat cookies - YUM!
Blowing out the big three candles - he did it (almost) in one blow.
And now the obligatory mess - mmmmmm!!!
Of course, this was the moment he'd been waiting for - PRESENTS! He had a whole tower of them!
Ben felt like he needed to preview one of them before John Michael read it...just in case there was anything objectionable in there. Besides, the big brothers were once again the gracious benefactors of the birthday glow-in-the-dark underpants so Ben needed all the info he could gather on the subject...
I always wanted one of these when I was a kid and wouldn't you know it, I weigh a bit too much now to try it out - at least I can live vicariously through John Michael!
Muff, I said Max and Ruby and you give him a 100 piece domino dumptruck set?! Max and Ruby - it's on DVD, you can't lose it, you can put it away quickly and it's only ONE PIECE!!!
Well, the big brothers get a real kick out of actually playing with the thing anyway - when they aren't chasing down John Michael and David for any number of the ONE HUNDRED PIECES that are being relocated throughout the house.
HAPPY ONE HUNDRED PIECE BURP-DAY JOHN MICHAEL!!
