Tonight, my boys reminded me they are now 9, 10, 11, and 12 years old.
This guy had a great day Celebrating!
He stayed in bed a little extra long this morning and then headed to the main floor for breakfast.
He was surprised by Grandma . . . She tried out the boys' Spooner board and didn't even fall. Way to go Grandma!
Grandma brought Cody's Birthday gifts along.
Two awesome shirts, a hidden word puzzle book and Moola!
Thank you Grandpa and Grandma.
Katelyn made caramel corn yesterday . . .
Cody loves it!
Time to start on the Skittles Cake!
Separate the colors
Of course they needed taste tested along the way for quality control purposes . . . just in case you were wondering.
After separating, 3/4 of each color was melted in 1/4 cup of water.
The other 1/4 of each color was ground into Skittles sugar.
Turning solids into liquid . . .
turning solids into powder . . .
turning Skittles into a cake.
The Colors of the Rainbow - Skittles cake.
If I were to make it again, I would have added a little food coloring to each powder of the rainbow to make the Skittle Sugar stand out a little brighter in color. Cody loved it just the way it was.
Cody requested Tacos for dinner.
It was finally time for cake!
The cake had "Skittle Juice" poured into holes poked into the cake.
The icing was lemon butter cream - Cody's choice.
During after dinner clean up, Cody waited for us in the family room. We took care of the dishes from making the cake, frosting, and dinner. When we were finished, we were surprised to find our Birthday boy had fallen asleep! Poor Fella slept TWO hours.
When he woke, he opened his gifts . . .
and . . . you guessed it, more Lego.
Thank you all for sharing in Cody's Special Day.
Thank you for the Wonderful Birthday Wishes!
