On his actual birthday he opened his present from us. He got a new sled, some gatorade, and candy, and a huge ninja turtle sticker book. He got to stay home from school that day. For some reason my kids think the day is more special if they get to stay home from school. We had a busy evening with dance, basketball, and yoga so I picked up some cupcakes from crazy cakes and we sang to him before all our activities started. He said it was a good day.

On Friday he had a couple of friends over and we went to Mariner's Cove to swim. We had such a fun time. Then we went back to our house for hot dogs and birthday donuts, and then the boys watched the Maze Runner. Another fun night. The boys got him a t-shirt that they created. Ty is excited for it to come in the mail.
At the beginning of the month we had a birthday get together with the Olsen's to celebrate all the January birthdays. Ty got to pick supper and he chose Lasagna. It was a good night celebrating with family. Then on Sunday we had our Malacko January birthday party at our house. We were celebrating Ty and my niece Cohen's birthdays. Ty got a nice hoodie from Grampa Jim and Gramma Penny, and a remote control toy, and baseball cap from Adam and Britt and the girls. We had spaghetti and meatballs and ice cream cake. It was fun. My whole family was able to be there which was great. Family really is the best. My kids are always asking for big parties with their friends but I always tell them that family is who they should be celebrating with. They will be there for all your birthdays and their the one's who know you and love you best.
What a great week of celebrations. We love you Ty!
The weather has been beautiful too. It was 18 degrees the other day. The boys are both in basketball right now so they were excited to be able to go outside and play basketball the other afternoon. I love it when we get beautiful Spring days in the middle of winter. I'm sure the snow will be coming back soon, but we'll enjoy it while it lasts.
Look at that sky. I love Southern Alberta skies.
