Last weekend we were excited to celebrate Matthew’s 10th Birthday – I say it every year, but I can’t believe that he is already TEN!! What a tremendous blessing to watch him grow from this adorable baby…
Into such an awesome “big kid”!
We celebrated Matt’s actual birthday last Friday with a night at the Movie Tavern to see “Madagascar III” – we had so much fun! It was our first time at the Movie Tavern and we will definitely be back. If you haven’t been there – check out their website here.
On Saturday (after our physicals for our Home Study and Dossier) it was time to get ready for the family to come to our house to help us celebrate. Matthew wanted me to make him an “Angry Birds Space” birthday cake… When I agreed to make his birthday cake, I was thinking a nice simple traditional birthday cake… somehow it ended up becoming a two layer domed shape cake covered in fondant with fondant angry bird characters (thanks to the creative efforts of the birthday boy and his big sister!). It became quite a stressful project, but I’m really happy with the results (and so was Matthew – so that made my day!)
I think you can tell from the look on his face that Matthew had a great birthday!
