School closed in honor of Seth's birthday yesterday. Well, actually it closed because it was totally frigid outside and not safe for students to walk to school. Either way that you look at it, Seth was happy. He was able to spend the day with Grandma Puccia and they did all sorts of crazy things. We started the day with Cody the elf making his yearly birthday appearance. He even left a little gift.
For breakfast we had the traditional pancakes with a 7 out of chocolate chips. I'm having flashes of my mother saying the word "traditions" going through my head. We certainly hold true to that word in this family. During the day Seth and grandma ended up getting all sorts of swag for throwing out that "birthday" word. Seth ended up with $10 from my mom's mechanic and 10 free donuts holes from DD. I think its a combination of cuteness and birthday.
In the afternoon the kids used all of the technology in our house to Skype with Uncle J and Joanie and Facetime with Aunt Sheryl. Seth also received a special treat from his BFF; a basket of his favorite candies.
I'll post dinner pictures at another time, but after dinner (below) we finally had time to open presents. So far Seth ended up with a new blanket from his sister, the Skylanders starter pack/game, a gift card for Target from Nana and Grandpa and a special day from Uncle J. This is only round one. He was over the top thrilled and very appreciative.
Tonight we get a birthday breather, but tomorrow night is Round 2.
