He and Tim headed out pretty early for their doughnut date. Jelly-filled was the birthday boy's choice this year.
He made sure to get every. last. drop. of the powdered sugar coating.
As soon as Devon realized his birthday was on the same day as Bible study, he asked if he could bring cookies to share with his class. It was fine with me, but he needed permission from the teacher. He shot off an e-mail asking if it would be ok and got thumbs up. He and I spent part of the morning making snickerdoodles, which are his favorite, to take to church.
We rolled 108 cookies, the little Ws and I each did quality control on one, and the bowl with the remaining 104 got set aside for church.
Later in the afternoon we took the traditional "birthday outfit" pictures.
Tim got home shortly after the photo shoot and we all sat down to Devon's birthday dinner. He requested fruit salad, fries, and Doritos this year. We almost always have tortilla chips in the house, but "fun" chips are generally a birthday treat. I'm just thankful he didn't ask for Cheetos. He did, however, insist on his "tough guy" face for this shot.
We scarfed down dinner, then he opened gifts from our family. Looks like he'll be keeping busy outside!
One last birthday tradition before the day came to an end. Cold Stone with me. He had coffee ice cream with Oreos and I had cherry vanilla with brownies (which, by the way, tastes a lot like Cherry Garcia). Our taste buds were happy!
We zipped back home to pick up the rest of the fam, headed off to Bible study with a bowl of cookies, and came home with an empty bowl that didn't even have a crumb left in it. I'd call that a pretty good birthday!
