TC's BIG Birthday Surprise

I couldn't share this earlier because TC likes to sit with me & read the posts. But since the party is over & he has gotten his gift, he wanted me to show it & his cake to everyone. It's a Ninja X-2 Pocket Bike. To say he was thrilled with it would be an understatement. My SIL made the cake.

THAT'S AWESOME!!

Congratulations to you TC!! Be careful on that too cool bike!!
My boys would have loved something like that, but, I was too protective I wish I hadn't been. Do you have a helmet?

We'll be getting the helmet this week since he has to be fitted for it(it would have given it away if we had have gotten it before). He rode it in the back yard Saturday & flipped it, but he got up laughing. It took hubby a lot of sweet talking to get me to agree to it! But after my mom told me that my brother was the same age when he got his dirt bike, I felt a little better about it.


I'll be sure to tell my SIL. She does all of our birthday cakes. I'll have to dig around to see if I have any pics of some of her other ones.

Yeah, he's all redneck, I can't keep shoes on him to save my life!! But then again, I don't wear shoes if I can get away with it.

What a wonderful surprise..I can just imagine how thrilled TC was with his gift. Glad you had a great birthday TC. Has he asked to have it in his room at night yet My oldest could not bring himself to be parted from his first bike, so it spent the first of many nights in his bedroom... The cake is really cute..Great job SIL kadesma

Happy belated birthday, TC!! My god what a cool present you got, you look just like my hero Valentino Rossi!! But be safe and don't make your mother worry over you too much okay?


We definetely will have to get one for Guido, as soon as he gets a bit bigger... (he is still 6!!) he would go nuts over it!!

Thanks y'all, but most of the thanks goes to hubby. He worked for a week with another guy painting part of the office building they work at to get the money for it. TC isn't sleeping with it in his bedroom, but it is staying in the dining room since we don't have any outside storage. Thanks goodness, the dining room isn't used for anything other than an office right now!

Thanks urmaniac! I feel more blessed than you know. Even on a very tight budget, hubby always comes through for us. I just feel lucky to have kids who appriciate even the smallest of gifts.

Looks like TC had a great birthday! SIL did a great job on the cake and you and hubby did an awesome job, as usual, too! Did TC go through a growth spurt lately, Crewsk? He looks a lot older all of a sudden. He's a cutie!

Wow, that bike looks like fun. I wish I had one when I was a kid. My brother and I had a mini bike that we rode until we blew up the motor one day.

Crewsk, I am glad that TC had a wonderful birthday.
