Belated Blog Birthdays

There are a LOT of birthdays come Fall at the Blackham home. I've been a bit behind in my blogging and never got around to my traditional birthday posts. So here's a recap of the recent ones.

Most recently, it was Grayson's birthday! Callahan, Keaton and I were gone for the evening with basketball stuff, but I left the swag on the counter for Gray. He'd told me I'd been "stingy" with the cookies recently, thus the oreo gift pack. The diet coke will help combat the cookie calories. I also made him a new quilt, as the one I'd made him years ago had fallen apart and he hadn't been able to find a replacement at the store. As I have done with the kids, I added a photo album of baby pictures of Grayson growing up through the years. 

Here's a sneak peek ...

MY birthday also occurred in November. We went out to Texas Roadhouse (sans Callahan, who was at basketball tryouts) and then came home for cake. My mom had been craving the white cake from Sam's Club for HER birthday a few days before. Gray and I had attempted to stop and pick one up, but the store was out! So we invited Grandma and Grandpa and Maga out for cake, and had grandparents and games night.

Landon's birthday was in September ...
His "cake" of choice is cheesecake. The Cheesecake Factory cheesecake to be exact. The whole family went out to celebrate his 19th birthday! I've included the "Little Landon" link. One of the gifts Landon received was shocking!

This "game" is called "Lightening Reaction" and four people hold the handles. Lights and music play, and when they stop, the last person to press their button gets a shock! There are four intensity levels. There was a lot of laughter as the boys (and Daddy) tried this game out. It's been a favorite with family and friends as well!

We had two birthdays there at the end of August as well. 
Keaton and Cooper ...

Cooper's birthday was up first. Eleven years old! We had a little celebration with my parents the Sunday before. Cake and ice cream and games ...

 Cooper's dinner choice was Chick-Fil-A

I really attempted to pick up the Oreo Ice Cream cake, which has been a favorite in the past, but the store didn't have it in stock. We had to make due with this giant cookie. Here's the link to reflect back on Cooper's Baby Days ...

Keaton loves the ribs at Texas Roadhouse ... but I don't know if we'd ordered a whole rack of ribs before. His eyes were a little wide at how much food was on his plate! It was a fun birthday dinner out. Fourteen for this guy! Yup, I have Little Keaton photos too.

We had a birthday celebration with the Blackham side of the family the Sunday after. I picked up the favorite fudge cake from Sam's Club for this celebration. All three boys took turns blowing out the candles.  

Let me tell you, with all the celebrations and cake, 
it sure is hard to control calories!

Only one more Blackham Birthday this year ...
