Alistair’s actual birthday was Thursday.  He is TEN years old – two whole hands!  double digits!

I can’t even.  How is this possible?  How can my five-weeks-early baby already be ten years old????

Ah well.  Time marches on, I suppose.

On Thursday we went out to dinner, to the restaurant of his choice (Five Guys).  Then home for cake with just the four of us.

We had his party on Saturday.  His chosen theme was Minecraft.  Which was a challenge, since there aren’t really any licensed party products.  So, with thanks to Pinterest and the World Wide Web, we improvised.

He has decided he’s too old for pinatas, so instead I did a snack-bag crafting table and let the kids choose their own treats.

My mother-in-law kept her ‘amazing birthday cake’ streak alive…

He spent the day with his best friends and all of his cousins (the age range of which is 16 years to 10 months, so it’s not nothing), and really that’s the whole point.

Here’s to many many more happy birthdays like this one.
