So as soon as he got up, had breakfast and got dressed we let him open his birthday presents.
The Birthday Boy!
His gift from Aunt Nicole and Uncle Cory! Gift card to Toys R Us! Whoohooooo!
Moving on to the next gifts....this time from Grandma and Papa.
They got him the Razor Sole Skate and helmet!
We decided to let Jon wear the helmet since he was already having issue protecting his head....
He's special. What can I say?
Next...his present from Mom & Dad!
A DSi XL!!!!!
Look at that face! He's sooooooo happy!
Jon and Jack wanting to see the new DS. (Jack is secretly hoping Jason will give him his old DS - and because Jason is such a good brother - he did give it to him! )
As one of Jason special requests, he asked for me to make him his favorite dinner. Nope, not pizza or chicken nuggets. Not even pancakes....He wanted me to make him Thai Chicken Salad. Man, I love that my kids eat weird stuff like this! I so love making it for them!!!
I got the recipe from Pampered Chef's '29 minutes to Dinner 2' cookbook. It's actually called 'Crunchy Curried Chicken Salad'. I'm not sure why we started calling it Thai Chicken Salad, lol! If you'd like the recipe, go here----> Try it! You'll like it!
Starting my prep work for his birthday dinner by toasting some coconut....
Slaving away for my birthday boy!
Jon picture sniping us....
Perry decided to get in on the fun by fashioning a tin tooth and donning my ultra hip shades. He's gangsta yo!
The finished product!
The birthday boy roasting his birthday marshmallow....
Nothing goes better with smore's and a fire pit than a big ol' glass of wine...YUM!
It was a great way to kick back and finish up Jason's 9th birthday!
Happy Birthday buddy!!! Next year, it's DOUBLE DIGITS!!!!
