Happy Birthday to Scott! We had a three day birthday extravaganza!
This past Wednesday was Scooter’s b-day. We had our lovely Links Crew over for some delicious Thai food.
Thursday the girls on his softball team had a little surprise waiting for him.
Back when Blake was still in onesies our cousin Gaye gave us these awesome toques.
They might look a little goofy to you, but they are the warmest hat I’ve ever worn. I suggest you go to Pook.ca right now and check them out. Scott is coaching softball in February and he needs all the warm he can get, so he wears his to most practices. I told his softball girls about his birthday and they cooked up a plan.
They each attached socks to an SAS beanie in Scott’s honour and they made that amazing Sock Monkey cake. Such cool kids!
On Friday we had an Elementary function at Mr X. It’s a puzzle house! You get locked into a room with a group of people and have an hour to get out. There are different themes and lots of clues and LOTS of red herrings. I was in a high tech room called Area 51 and Scott was in a room that was made up of jail cells. We had 6 different groups from our school and only one was successful in getting out of their room in time. Scott’s, of course. He is so stinking good at puzzles like that!
Here are the winners.
Rae Ah, Scotty, Giselle, Ruby, Mike, Kev and Dana. Dana was Blake’s pre K Chinese teacher!I think the signs say “Winner, winner, chicken dinner” in Chinese.
Afterwards I arranged for us all to go to Bubba’s Texas BBQ joint in Shanghai and to meet up with our MS and HS friends. The second part was meant to be a surprise for Scott, but some turkey from school blew it! And then Scott messed with me saying he wanted to go somewhere else and I crumbled under the pressure of keeping a secret and told him all about it. It was still fun. Loads of good friends and good food a just a few drinks too many = a very fun birthday almost surprise for Scott!
Here’s one more picture of baby Blake in his toque, because …. so adorable!
