Birthday with Friends

We celebrated Ethan's birthday today for just Ethan (no sharing with his sister) and he wanted to invite several of his friends over for pizza, playtime and a movie. This is the cake I made for the "movie night."
I used to make all the boys cakes until it just seemed like I couldn't get ahead and was too tired to take the time and do it. This is one thing that excites me about staying home now - having time.
Doesn't he look more like 9 in this picture?
He is growing up way to fast for my liking.
One of the gifts he received was 3D side walk chalk.
Ethan was skeptical at first until I pointed out which colors were up and which ones were down.
At which point I must have heard "it's really popping" about 186 times.
"it's popping"
The orange, "it's really popping."
We had 9 boys in our house tonight and each of them had a weapon of some sort; lightsaber, sword, gun, etc. I had no idea we had so many weapons in our house. I just knew there would be tears from someone, but nope. They did fine. Which is interesting. Literally 9 boys swinging weapons at each other and not one tear. Whereas I just have the two and there are tears everyday. How does that work? Chris said when one would get hit they would just say "I'm a Captain and Captains can't die." Then another boy would look at Chris and say "He's right. He's a Captain." So funny. Happy Birthday (again!) Ethan! Now that's it until you're 7!
