Then the weekend of Caleb's actual birthday, Nana ,PawPaw, Grammy and Pop-Pop came to celebrate with us. And Grammy and Pop-Pop brought a great surprise with them: Hayden! We had lunch at Chick-fil-a,. the kids played, Caleb opened presents, we had cake and then we went to the Children's Museum (at Hayden and Caleb's request). This year, Caleb requested an Optimus Prime birthday cake (WHAT?!?!?). So after extensive research, I decided to go with the frozen buttercream transfer method and tried to find an Optimus Prime that wasn't too detailed. The cake turned out pretty great.
And then Caleb got his birthday wish. This kid has been dying for it to snow. And he was so bummed that Hayden couldn't spend the night. Well, to our very great surprise and his very great delight- it snowed.... a lot! (at least a lot for South Carolina). The forecast called for a few wet flurries so no one was worried or in a hurry to leave. Grammy, Pop and Hayden left about 4:00 and ended up turning around after they ran into a very dense snow storm! They were snowed in. So not only did Caleb get to play in the snow on his birthday but he got to do it with his best friend, Hayden.
