I have a 7 year old boy!


Thursday, July 11, 2013

Today's my son's birthday. He's been counting down to it all week. Can you tell he's excited?

I'm allowing him his favorite meal, like we do with any person's birthday. He has simple tastes, he wants hot dogs. We'll do cake this weekend at his small party, just us and the grandparents. Apparently my sister couldn't be put off her anniversary for an hour or two. I did invite her, so it wasn't on my side...

He wanted a Hobbit Hole for his cake, so that's what I'll be making. I'm going to try to make natural coloring this year instead of using my artificial colors, so we'll see how well I manage those colors. I just needed blue, green and red with a little yellow, so I'm using spinach, blueberries, raspberries and turmeric powder for the colors. Hopefully we won't have odd tastes for the colors on top of the strawberry cake. Either way the red will taste better in raspberry than artificial red color, which always has an odd taste, even with the "no-taste" red.

I let him open the present that showed up yesterday already and today he'll bet to open all his stuff from us. Saturday he gets to open more stuff from the grandparents and sometime this month the other side will send out some presents too.

He also gets to visit the doctor today! I try to get it done on his birthday and hopefully we'll be able to do this every year, but as soon as it shifts due to a Sunday getting in the way, insurance will continue to make us push it out, but I'm starting this new insurance on his birthday.

Eventually this week, he'll also be sporting shiny new glasses. They didn't come in last night, so we'll get around to it hopefully by the weekend. Oh the beginning of the end of perfect vision, I know it well and passed it onto my children.

I hope he enjoys his birthday, he already made sure he got birthday hugs and kisses. It can only get better from here!

Today's Holidays: World Population Day, All American Pet Photo Day, National Blueberry Muffin Day (which is why we picked them yesterday) and Vegetarian Food Day.

    Sending Happy Birthday wishes to your son, hope he enjoys his special day; then again on the weekend when you make that special cake... I bet you both were happy he can skip the daily medication--good for him.
With you making this special cake reminds me when our DD was a figure skater, I made her a set of skates birthday cake. We all left for club time for her, got home and the dog ( still young dog ) got up on the table and ate one heel of one of the cakes. Ya, never had done that before or ever again. There was plenty of cake for everyone, but was somewhat disappointed--as a lot of work went into that cake.

    We've done the natural food dye for cakes when younger dd was allergic to Red and Yellow dyes. Orange juice can work ok for yellow. I hope you or someone else tastes the frosting 1st before you put it on the cake. The gal who helped me decorate my daughter's cakes when she was little taste tested the frosting first. There are a variety of juices out there that make good dyes for frosting. Hope it goes well for you. A great project done with a lot of love. emoticon emoticon

Hope you have a very happy birthday with him! It goes way too fast. My little boy is now 16 and I still can't get past that just the other day he was as tall as my knees.

    Happy Birthday to your son. You are giving him the best gift of all. A healthy life. That is what my doctor says about seeing me once a year for my birthday. Easy to remember the date and a gift of good health all in one!
