Happy Birthday, Michael
Michael had a great birthday celebration. Last night he got his own cell phone and some money, and we went out to dinner. He picked the restaurant.
Today he got a new dirt bike from his other grandparents, some St. Louis Cardinals' gear from his sister, clothes, and other cool gifts. Because the Cards are in the World Series he didn't have to wear his school uniform and got to wear his Cardinals' shirt and hat to school.
I'm not the greatest photographer, but here's a photo I took of him after he got home from school this afternoon.
While he was at school I baked his favorite cake. The name on the recipe is Texas Sheet Cake, but since the Cardinals are playing the Texas Rangers in the World Series, I'm just calling it Michael's Favorite Chocolate Sheet Cake.
So, happy birthday to our teenage grandson, Michael! Hope you enjoy your cake!
