Before breakfast today Ammon got to open his presents. Gideon and Ayla were more than happy to help him with the opening part.
They were also wonderful helpers holding up all of Ammon's presents so we could see what he got. There's the Heros of Olympus #1-3, Webolos stuff for scouts advancement, a Red Ryder BB gun, cansister of BBs, and new tire tubes for his bike.
After the big kids left for school, the little kids helped me make Ammon's cake. They make great beater lickers!
And the finished product! TADA!! For those who don't know, this is Percy Jackson's sword, Riptide. It's from his very favorite book series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians. Any guesses how long this thing is????? Okay, I bet you already gave up. 35 inches is the correct number. We took it with us to the trunk-or-treat party at the church tonight. The whole ward sang happy birthday to him and then helped us eat the cake. Happy birthday Ammon!! We are all so glad you have been in our family for TEN years!!
