We decided he wasn't quite old enough for the electric saw and drill that he requested, so we settled with his first hand saw.
The big treat was his new bow and arrow. Now he doesn't have to share Isaac's anymore!
Pretty impressive! :)
I woke up extra early so that I could get to Crispy Creme's and back AND have time to open presents before Eric had to leave for work. Much to my dismay (after driving for 10 min.), our Crispy Creme closed down so we had to pay for Safeway (just around the corner) donuts instead of getting our free, melt in your mouth, dozen. Carter was still happy...we let him light his own candle!
I picked up Subway and took it to Carter's school to have lunch with him. On my way out, I picked up a pale and fevered Isaac and brought him home with me. He was pretty bummed to miss out on the rest of the day's activities. Especially dinner that night because Carter got to invite two friends to go to MONKEY BUSINESS! YEA! I had to miss out, too, but still had loads of fun cleaning up the puke that Ian (not Isaac) decided to dispense all over me and the couch.

After dinner, we had some Navy Ship cake and ice cream. My friend, Tammy, came over to teach me the fine art of fondant and this is what I ended up with. It was a lot of fun. Not exactly what my head pictured, but sometimes my head outthinks my abilities! He loved it and that's what I was going for. Next time I'll make sure she stays until the end....:) Thanks for your help, Tammy!
Carter is definitely the life of our little family. He has so many crazy ideas and a cute little smirk to match. I think sometimes his brain outthinks his abilities, too, but I love that he builds cardboard ships that will "really sail" and paper parachutes that he tries to use off of his bunkbed. I feel very fortunate that we're seven years down and no trips to the ER. (Knock on wood!) Happy Birthday Carter Boy!
