I had to go shopping in the morning and the older children's school driver took me and the younger two boys. It was kind of fun because our driver, Khairulla, shares the same birthday as Bruce. On our way back home, Bruce got a FaceTime call from my parents, though it was hard to visit over Khairulla's loud music. No, he did not turn it down for us.
Bruce wanted a Christmas themed brithday party. We made it simple. He invited our friends the Willardson's over for his birthday dinner and "party".
Making a wish...
I missed my chance at getting a picture of Bruce blowing out the candles so this was a posed photo. :)
He wanted a strawberry cake with and a Christmas tree on top. We did the best with what we had to decorated the cake, and unfortunately all we had were little squeeze tubes of nasty gel frosting. The strawberry cake, however, was SO good! We made it with cream cheese frosting! Mmm!!!

Bruce, thrilled to have a Lego Movie Lego set from Daddy and Mommy!
