Pierson's Birthday!

Yes, Yes, Yes. I know I am a terrible Mom... Pierson's birthday was January 5th and, well... it is now Jan 17th... Sorry Buddy!
I may be late on the blog, but we did celebrate his day with much excitement. In that aspect we didn't miss a beat.. and I wasn't late. ;)
 Birthdays around here are not complete without making your own cake. Pierson wanted a strawberry cake with confetti icing, silver sprinkles and awesomely yellow and red sugar letters to spell out his special day.
 He just had to include everyone's names. (note he didn't have enough letters to spell Maylin so he had to settle for May).
 We celebrated on two nights. The second night (Friday night which made it easier to gather friends and family) Pierson decided to eat at a local favorite Thai restaurant. My kids love their noodles! I do too if I am being honest.
 Thursday (his birthday morning) he woke up to a pile of presents from various family members.
Here he is showing off his new Wii games from Grandpa Mickey and Grandma Claire! Thanks guys those have provided endless hours of fun!
He got a phone call from his cousins and Ayi (Aunt Kristi). They sang an awesomely loud version of Happy Birthday. Pierson was grinning from ear to ear! He loved it. PS M6 family Pierson has picked out a spot on Mom's property for you guys to build your new house... didn't know you were moving did you? Just ask the 7 year old... He knows best.

Daddy picked out something for him that made his eyes twinkle a little extra. He got electric drums. Every Sunday after church while Daddy is packing up his guitar and microphone Pierson sneaks up and practices the drums. We went for the electric drums because we knew he could plug earphones in and we would never have to hear loud crashing drums in the house... FYI  even with earphones they are still noisy! :) Oh well... it will be worth it some day... Right? ;)

Testing out the drums. 

 Birthday dinner. Since we were going out to diner the next night with friends we thought we would eat at home. His pick was Chinese food... I'll be honest Ramen noodles is about where my Chinese cooking skills ends. So... Daddy stopped on his way home! Chinese food it was! Delicious, quick and oh-so-easy!
 Kate and Andy brought over a cardboard rocket. It is super cool because you can color it yourself.
 Yep it took 4 adults to assemble, but it has been totally worth it. And YES I did need to be inside to help! ;)

He slept well after two days of celebrating. Thanks Ayi, Uncle Ian and cousins for the "Daddy's School Pillow Pet".  Sweet dreams my sweet 7 year old.
"I love you and Jesus loves you!"
