Mama OWL Blog: Our Birthday Boy

Our Birthday Boy

Monday, 6 February 2012

Our eldest son turned 11 yesterday. I can't believe how grown up he is now, he's becoming a young man. He's such a sweet boy and so thoughtful and caring, I'm very proud of him and I am looking forward to meeting the man he grows up to be. It's bittersweet, you want to keep them small forever but they grow up so fast.

He had a lovely day despite Mr Owl being away. We let him open his presents on Saturday night before his dad left so we could all be there. He was very pleased with his gifts. On Sunday he opened his cards and found his main present, tickets for him & a friend to go and see England v Holland at Wembley with his dad at the end of February, he was thrilled!

Yesterday we had all the family come round to visit and wish him a happy birthday and bring him cards & gifts, it was lovely. In the evening Mr Owl's parents came round for dinner and birthday cake, Josh roped his Grampy in to helping him put his telescope together and then they attempted some stargazing before it clouded over again. After dinner we watched Mr Popper's Penguins, said goodbye to Nana & Papa and then it was time for bath & bed ready for school today. All in all it was a really lovely, quiet family weekend, and he has the big match to look forward to in a few weeks.

I posted a pic of Joshua with his tickets for #SilentSunday yesterday, but here is a picture of his cake. He wanted a football pitch cake, so I added a twist and made it a rainbow cake too. Red cake > orange icing > yellow cake > green icing > blue cake > purple icing. I think it worked well, and it certainly tasted nice (if I do say so myself!)

Work in progress...

Mr Owl piped the pitch markings, because I know zero about football or what a pitch should look like haha

And the end result, cut and ready to serve!
