Conor Turned 7!

The day after we got back from Ireland was Conor’s 7th birthday; a busy day, with a mini van that wouldn’t start, school, swim classes… Still time for celebration of course.

Lucky boy got a 3DS


I had to collect my car from the dealer straight after swimming, so my plans to make “French chicken”, Conor’s favorite, (it’s basically either roast chicken or braised chicken thighs) were scuppered. We detoured on the way home to Friendly’s…

He got a special song


This is what a jetlagged 7-year-old looks like in the baby blanket Farmor made him:

Mommy is melting


The party request was a sports theme again (of course): Mario and Sonic at the Rio Olympic Games 2016. I cooked up hot dogs per the birthday boy’s request (most parties have pizza without fail, so there were some surprised comments from the kids but most of them packed in a couple!) I also sprayed mini Oreos with gold edible spray to look both like a gold medal and a gold coin from Mario. The cake was the sheet cake I used last year, but with the frosting that comes with the recipe (yum): Martha Stewart’s Texas Sheet Cake.

Mario is in the lead
