Every year we tell Kade how lucky he is to have his birthday when he does; no school, everyone celebrates, etc. It's really the best, though it can be hard on his mother to remember to purchase/wrap presents so close after Christmas...
Kade wanted to have a friend party this year, so we invited a few buddies from his Primary class over for a Lego-themed party. We played pin the head on the Lego guy, had a Lego relay race, took turns building a Lego creation one block at a time, and guessed how many Lego candies were in a jar. After games we had pizza and juice for lunch, followed by cupcakes that I ordered from Harmons and added Lego candies to (my best idea of the day!). Kade really wanted a pinata, but the only one I could find that kind of fit the theme was a taco pinata... Taco Tuesday from the Lego Movie?? Get it?? All the kids got a couple of turns whacking the pinata before it burst open.
The little friends gave some nice gifts (lots of Legos!). Kade had a blast, and I think it was just about the right amount of effort for a party on my part...
We met up for lunch with Craig, Amber, Morgan, and my parents at Buca. Like I said, it is so nice to have a holiday birthday when no one has to work! Kade opened a few presents, blew out a giant candle, and got his very own pizza.
Later that afternoon Kade got to open even more presents (more Legos)! Then we got a special treat when Uncle Mark and Aunt Kayla stopped to spend the night on their way home from Panguitch to Laramie. We got to meet the newest Boshell cousin, Cecilia.
Tess loved her!

For dinner Kade chose his favorite sweet and sour meatballs, con queso and chips, and pineapple. I made him a chocolate oreo cream cake topped with six candles! We rang in the new year at 8:30 with a funny countdown on Netflix and some confetti poppers out in the snow.
