Par-tay!

From the moment he woke up, Michael knew yesterday was a special day for him. We didn't think we'd have such a turn-out of people for the party since the invitations were sent out a little late, but the house was definitely full! (I think people really came to see my mom, but who wouldn't want to come and see that crazy lady?) Regardless, Michael of course loved all of the attention.

Here's Michael in his birthday outfit from his mommy and daddy:


We had a lovely lunch...Thank you to grandma and grandpa for providing the food and Thank you to Jonathan for slaving over the grill...


We had teriyaki chicken, teriyaki beef strips, teriyaki meatballs, fumi salad, potato salad, fruit, veges, chips & dip, and cheese & crackers. All very yummy if I might say.

And then came the presents...We thought Michael would be a little more interested in tearing the paper--but not so much. Needless to say, I did all of the opening.






Whenever he got excited about a present everyone would clap...


And he would clap in return...


The last present he opened was from Jonathan and I.





He loves his new car--and now when he turns 16 and wants a car, we can say we already bought him one. =)

And then there was cake...


I tried posting the video but it keeps failing. =( He didn't want to eat it...He didn't even want to touch it. I tried to give him a little taste of the frosting but he just turned his head away. We finally took the cake away and gave him a bit of ice cream. THAT he liked...

Everyone else had cake and ice cream and then the party was over...



Later that evening Stephanie decided to show Michael how he was supposed to eat his birthday cake...






Thank you again Grandma and Grandpa for a wonderful party!
