Happy 10th Birthday, Bishop!

It was Bishop's 10th birthday today. Keegan typically makes and decorates the family birthday cakes but, alas, she is not here so the cake making became my responsibility. It was a simple chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. The decorations were also simple, actually the lego minifig is my way of dressing up the cake. Simple but Bishop loved it.

The cake withstood the wish-making and candle-blowing but began to fall apart soon after the cake-cutting. Oh well, it did taste sooooo gooood!!!!!

As per family tradition, Bishop got to choose the menu for the evening. He chose stuffed sopaipillas. I couldn't get a single one of them to fluff properly. Despite the imperfections, they were devoured; just as the aforementioned perfectly imperfect cake was. After dinner came gift opening From Grandmama, Aunt Christie, et al. he received an insect identification kit complete with a magnifying glass and an insect guidebook. I see lots of buggy fun when spring arrives.

Then he got to the gift from his immediate family. He looked in the gift bag and found targets and bb's but "where is the gun?" he asked.

Ahhh, there it is. Bishop is now a proud gun owner.

Happy 10th birthday, Bishop! You are in the double-digits now!
