Recap: Mason was grounded on his birthday for #1,#2, #3, #4 mistakes that lead him to the principals office. So all birthday celebrates where canceled. Real bummer for everyone.
So currently this week Mason has been having a down week. With homework, scouts, chores, etc. he said he misses his family. Even his teacher said that Mason really hates getting so much homework since he can't spend time with us. Break our little hearts.
So the thought came to me that besides rearranging a few things so Mason could spend more time with us we all helped to plan him a surprise birthday party. So with 18 hours we had to wing a few things. But I think things turned out great.
When Mason walked into our home we all yelled "Surprise- Happy Birthday!"
Boy was he excited!
Mike and I had most of these under our bed from his original birthday. So that part was easy.
Side note: Mike and I talked about how we really don't get Mason the things that he really wants. We usually get him educational or spiritual gifts. There's nothing wrong with those type of gifts but sometimes we has parents just need to embrace our children's interested and get them the things that their childlike spirit wants. Back to party.....
Our girls helped me wrap them so the ribbon ended up knotted so it was somewhat difficult to take off but Mason didn't mind.
Gamestop which was odd since we've only been there once. But a prompting is something you should never ignore. For the price of a retailed DS which is about $125 we were able to purchase the system with all those extras, a 2 year warranty (he has sisters) and the girls all agreed on a game for him (which was Kung Fu Panda 2) for the same price. Most expensive gift but look at the smile :)
After gifts we went outside for some FUN!!!
A good ol'fashion water balloon fight :-)
After all the balloons were gone and a few injuries we headed back inside, changed, and enjoyed some birthday cake. The previous week Harmon's had a huge gluten free sale so I picked up a few boxes of GF cake mix.
Song time ♪♪
But after all was done and we were getting ready for bed Mason still had 1 more gift.
A night out to see the movie Journey 2.
Mason was really excite to see this movie. Mike says he really enjoyed himself. When they came home Mason apologize to me for being home late. He's a funny kid but I'm glad he knows that he's up pass curfew :-)
Happy Birthday Mason! :-) We all love you ♥
