Ryan's 6th Birthday

Better late than never, right?  Life has been going by at the speed of light ever since school started this year.  I kept meaning to post lots of things, but never got around to it.  

Anyway, for Ryan's 6th birthday (Can you believe it?!?! Six already?!?!?), he wanted to have a Lego birthday.  He actually went back and forth between Angry Birds and Legos, but finally settled on Legos.  He also couldn't make up his mind as to what kind of dessert he wanted.  At first he just wanted cookies and ice cream since cake has never been a favorite.  I was fine with that, but, he tasted Phil's chocolate sheet cake (which Phil refers to as just 'birthday cake')  at Phil's birthday and decided that he liked that too.  I looked at tons of pins on Pinterest to figure out what to do for Ryan's cake and finally thought of a green Lego board.  It was simple and I liked how it looked.  I used M&M's for the pegs and real Legos to write his name.   


For the sugar cookies, I rolled out my dough, measured 2x3 squares, and cut the dough with my pizza cutter.  I dyed the frosting to match the M&M's, then used M&M's for the pegs.  They don't look perfect, but they tasted good.



Ryan had all his buddies there.  I so enjoyed watching him play with all his friends.  


Ryan and Phil also built all the table decorations.  I'm sorry that I didn't take pictures of all his creations because they were really cute.  


Ryan got tons of new toys to play with, which still occupy a lot of his time.  He loved every single thing he got.


This look just cracks me up.


Both great grandma's were also in attendance, which I'm so thankful for.



Ryan also had a lot of help with his candles.  It was a great party and a lot of fun.  We had so much fun celebrating our boy.
