And the Celebrations began....

 30 Birthday Cake Pops for his class, erase that 20 for class and 10 for the kickball team!

 Flag Friday and celebrating his birthday in school was more than enough to make take him to that silly place!

 It's official this boy is "7"
Celebrating with Daddy at Disneyland!

 And when we got home, perfectly timed Titi Roxanne was there with her perfect gifts; musical card always a favorite for Peter Ray

 Star Wars the Clone Wars Book toooo  perfect!

 Need I say more...

 I'm saving this one!!!

 So I made the cake from scratch; chocolate on chocolate as he requested and ruined it by forgetting candles....

Grandma's gift....the too cool Spark Razor!

And the party with friends happened 6 days after the fact.  The great race began; my theme this year was genius. Obstacle courses, the kids ran, jumped, crawled and balanced. The idea was to divide them into teams and may the best team win. However, what I didn't account for was these beautiful kids didn't care who won, they just wanted to run and so they did over and over and over again. They repeated the course so many times they literally fell to the ground with exhaustion; their parents can thank me later. Nevertheless, this is what I will remember about PeterRays 7th Birthday and how special he really is. So it's 9/17/11 its about 6pm Sophia has a bad cold and I'm super exhausted from the past week. I have no gift, no cake and I'm not in the mood. I end up falling asleep around 9pm; obviously feeling guilty I wake on 9/18/11 at 5:30am make a cake from scratch and decorate the kitchen as I do for every ones birthdays. Peter Ray wakes around 8am and is beside himself because he is officially 7. We go to breakfast and a surprise visit to Disneyland, see Daddy and it's all good. Get home before dinner to our surprise my sister, Mother and Father are at our home. We head to Olive Garden PeterRays favorite restaurant have pasta come back sing to my candle-less cake open his gifts from Roxanne and my Mom and he's a HAPPY HAPPY 7 YEAR OLD BOY! Here's what I left out literally I didn't have a gift for him, just ran out of time and didn't really know what to get him this year and the best part is he didn't ask, it didn't faze him nor was it of any importance. I finally asked him and his beautiful reply was, you made my cake Mommy it was the best gift ever just like your the best cooker ever. So I played the video of his birth for him as we sat together in front of the computer, me holding back tears of how amazing that day was and how appropriate for me to tag on Celine Dion's version of Beautiful Boy by John Lennon. PeterRay caught me crying and asked if I was sad or crying from happiness. I told him "you have made me happier than my heart could have ever imagined and that everyday with him in my life is something to celebrate about"!
