Carson's 6th Birthday

One month ago today, Carson turned 6!

He really, really, really wanted footie jammies. Carson's always loved snuggly things, stuffed animals, soft blankets, snuggling in general. When he was 2&3 years old he didn't like the footie part of the jammies so we'd cut them off at the ankles. So after a few years of wearing other jammies, he decided he wanted a new pair of footie jammies, and he was thrilled that I found some at Target that were big enough.....they look so funny and huge when they're not on!

They look pretty cute! And definitely snuggly.

We had a little birthday party with some of Carson's friends at our house. We played "Pin the sponge on Spongebob", where we took a page out of a giant coloring book Carson got last year for his birthday and cut up some sponges for each person and they had to tape them on Spongebob's nose, as close as they could, blindfolded and dizzy. :-) It was quite a hit!
And then we walked down the street to the grass where we did a three-legged race and some other goofy games. Carson had a great time.

At least 4 months ago, I got a magazine in the mail that had a picture of a Boston Creme Pie on the cover and when Carson saw it, (he's our little foodie), he declared that he wanted that for his birthday. He didn't forget it, so that's what we made. It was pretty and delicious! And I had found this sparkler #6 candle at a shop here in town, and it turned out to be really cool!!! The picture below only shows it at the end, but it was quite spectacular....the boys loved it!

A fun birthday celebration of a wonderful boy. We love you Carson!!

Oh yum, now you've got me craving that Boston Cream Pie. Is it easy? Can I have the recipe?

You with us said...

What a smart boy! Snuggly pajamas and Boston Cream Pie. Ahhh...

BTW, what race is Jason doing? A bike race of some kind I assume? Biatholon?

Hey Gloria!
It was all from scratch, so definitely took some time, but it was easy. Just a little long for me to type out. But if you google Boston Creme Pie, there are lots of good food sites that have recipes for it, and I'm sure they are fairly similar. Have fun!

Hey By!
He's doing the Big Sur half marathon! I'm so excited for him. He's been running a lot and enjoying it. We are going to go down to stay in Monterey for the night so we'll be right there in the morning (it's actually not in Big Sur, but rather through Monterey, pretty nonetheless.)
Tomorrow night he's doing a NIGHT mountain bike the the dark....crazy! But he's so excited.

I love those jammies! I love that cake! I don't love running, but GOOOO Jason!

Mom said...

Hey, birthday boy. Love those jammies! Let's snuggle. Can't wait to see you and your family in 2 weeks.
Hugs and kisses.

Happy late birthday to Carson! Sophie turns 6 this coming Saturday. Can you even believe we have 6 year olds. I remember thinking that about them turning 5 last year...but now they are starting to look so old. Sophie asked for footie pajamas too:) And she is having a pajama party, go figure. Must be a six year old thing! xoxo
