A Teenager in the House!!!

Well, I can't post about Mickey's birthday on April 13 and not post about Brandon's birthday, because today's THE DAY! It's Brandon's crown birthday! He turns 13 on the 13th, and as he'll quickly point out - it's Friday the 13th! :)

He woke up earlier this morning - why is it easier to get the kids out of bed when they know there's no school? And I made him pancakes for breakfast. He was able to play wii, computer, watch tv - his favourite things. ;)
He had cosmos for lunch - now I don't know about you, but I didn't know what cosmos were until I met my husband's family. Take a sub roll, melt provolone cheese on it, add mayo, italian dressing, tomatos, lettuce and onions (hold the onions for Brandon) and you have a Hawkins' family favourite sandwich!
Played for the afternoon.... We talked about lasagna for dinner, but since Brandon HAD to go to the shop and spend some of the birthday money that was burning a hole in his pocket, we ran out of time, so we had goulash
The birthday cake of Brandon's choice was Deep Dark Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Icing.

Now he is having a sleepover with his "weekend family", the Frosts. They stay in the flat on our property, and he and Matthew spend every possible waking moment together! (Well, sleeping, too, I guess! ;))

It was a special day today, as we had already let him choose what was for dinner last night, assuming that we were back to youth at church today after the holidays, which would involve being away from home from 2-9. Brandon felt like it was an extra birthday present to find out we weren't going back until next week!
