BIRTHDAY FUN!

Eli's birthday day was great!

It started off with us going to the movies with my mom in the morning. We saw The Karate Kid (awesome movie, by the way), and then afterward we went to lunch! Thanks for the movie & lunch, mom!

There's Eli, next to my mom!

Later on in the evening, he got to pick where he wanted to go for dinner. I'm glad he chose Red Robin because I LOVE burgers! Here's everyone, including my sis in-law on the right! Thank you for dinner, Lisa!

Loved the burger I got! So good!

And here he is with his "upgraded" Dsi. This is the one with the even larger screen! My sister in-law told him that if saved $70, she would pay the difference to upgrade his Dsi! And, that's what he did!

He didn't want a traditional birthday cake, but he asked me to make a brownie ice cream "cake." I made two sheets of brownies like this.

Added a good layer of mint chocolate chip ice cream...

Put it back in the freezer, and when it was time for the cake, I added the whip cream! It was so good! I don't need to spend $40 on an ice cream cake anymore! I can make my own for $5!

So, I'm glad he was happy!! BUT, he still has to have a party with my youngest son in a couple of weeks!
