Happy Birthday Nikolai!

Today is Nikolai's 7th birthday and his very first American birthday! He wanted doughnuts for school today instead of cupcakes! (go figure - the child does not like cupcakes of any kind!) He originally wanted pink icing on his doughnuts but I talked him into just glazed ones instead - whew! I made these really cute boxes full of candy for each child in the class. He had a good time at school. (Deniska, on the other hand, "accidentally" kicked another child but that's a different story!) Anyway, back to Nikolai. He wanted to eat at "Tacomigos" for dinner. So, off to Los Amigos we went for a nice Mexican meal of tacos and rice. Then for a surprise, the wait staff brought him fried ice cream (free of charge), sang "Happy Birthday" to him in Spanish and then smeared cool whip and chocolate on his nose! hehehe - they had us all laughing. It was a fun evening. Nikolai got all of his birthday wishes this morning. He wanted a small 3 drawer organzier (for his "val'bles"); a truck that the doors opened and closed; and a 12 pack of Diet Pepsi! He was easily pleased and so proud of his gifts! It has been a nice day. He is now soundly asleep on this his first day of being 7!!
