Since Ryder's 4th birthday was on a Sunday, I tried to make things fun all weekend. Friday we got a snocone. I let him choose the flavor and he said he wanted green and red.
Sunday morning cinnamon rolls and four candles.
Sunday morning Ryder let everyone, and I mean everyone at church know it was his birthday.
He had a Ninja Turtle party at the Children's Museum. And ok, I'm guilty when it comes to a theme.
Cookie Cake. Much easier than a regular cake, especially since all the kids ever eat is the cake icing anyway!
Sewer Lids (oreos)
Pretzel Sticks (Ninja Swords)
Favors - Ninja Turtle fruit snacks
Just a few of the hundreds of funny comments Ryder makes everyday:
- We have an ant issue. I told him not to drop his waffle on the floor because ants love syrup. He replied, "but if ants get in the syrup, won't they get stuck?
- During his prayers the other night, he asked Jesus if he could be brown.
- When I asked him to look at me while I was talking to him (instead of the TV), he said, "I have two eyes, one is looking at you and one is looking at the TV! smart aleck!!!
- He's in a good habit of getting up every night around 2 am. When I asked him why this keeps happening he said, "if the conscrunction worker would've just put both of our beds in the same room I wouldn't have to get up and come in your room every night!
Ryder, you have such a special heart. You look out for your buddies, you have a smile that melts the earth and you always have to be right. (I know where you get the last thing). I am SO glad you are mine.
