It's real

The love for a Webkinz is real. Santa brought each boy a Webkinz, this is what they asked for. It is a "real pet Mommy!" For any of you who are familiar with the Webkinz phenomenon, the child adopts their pet on the website. The child gets to choose the gender, the name, what goes in their room among other things, but the one of the things assigned to the pet is their birthday. February 11 is Lester's birthday.

The countdown started as soon as we changed the calendar to February. The # of remaining sleeps, days, hours, etc. FINALLY it arrived, and a bonus it was a P.D. day at school!! Why? Well, our kids are only allowed their computer time on weekends, about an hour is the limit. BUT, being that February 11 is a "no school" day - that counts as the weekend!! Didn't you know?

So, we made sure to go online to receive birthday wishes from the Webkinz people, and some friends (yes, they can send little pre-scripted email-like messages or presents, very cute!), and of course to wish cyber-Lester a Happy Birthday. Then IRL....we did the same:

Baked cupcakes:

Gave hugs:

And even sang Happy Birthday:

What a great (REAL) excuse reason to bake and eat cupcakes!

MMMmmm, cupcakes.

My FIL is always joking that my kids need a dog. Maybe I can convince him to get one of the Webkinz variety. LOL Wait, do they have to be poopy-trained?

Oh, how cute is that????? I just love your boys to bits!

Hmmmm, we have a birthday coming up next month, and the kids are already addicted to the computer. He keeps talking about how he wants a dog when we grow up (one of his own, because Katie is apparently just the "family" dog.) Whaddya think, do you recommend the Webkinz?
