Choclo is 9!
He had a great birthday!
His brothers and sisters are pretty awesome present pickers, and he was pretty thrilled with the results.
Interestingly, a lot of his gifts were things to build in different ways. So fun!
Oob had fun getting "stuck" at the top of the climbing rock and getting Mxyl to rescue him.
What color would he like? Red? OK.
It wasn't until I was nearly done that I realized... it looks pretty creepy.
|You look delicious!|
Which made it extra creepy.
Klenda wandered in and told me, "Mom, you should have called me!"
Yeah, but.. I didn't realize it looked like it was the cake that ate the people until it was too late.
Choclo saw it, laughed, and then declared that it was his favorite cake ever.
So that was all right.
Then it was pinata time! We had found a red T rex pinata that looked substantially less creepy than the cake, and a fun time was had by all!
And the cake didn't actually eat anyone.
