This year's birthday celebration was a bit of a milestone celebration.  At 11, he was excited to receive his invitation to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.  Hmmm, do you think he should attend all the way in England or maybe go to Ilvermorny here in the US?  Decisions, decisions. Haha!  Evan also received a special birthday cake from Hagrid who borrowed my kitchen for the task.  That night, our family enjoyed dinner out at one of our favorite local seafood restaurants and then came home to eat cake and open presents.  For one final birthday surprise, Grandma came and delivered his big milestone birthday gift...

An owl woke us up fairly early to deliver Evan's Hogwarts letter to his room.  It was complete with tea stained parchment and wax seal.  

When Evan arrived home from school, he found his letter and the cake Hagrid made complete with misspellings. 

After Daddy got home from work, we went out for dinner at one of Evan's favorite places called Fish Tales. 

Daddy was getting extra special love from Mattox. 

Evan was "pretending" to slap his mama because of this spicy seasoning on the table.  Ha!  He knows better.   He loves the big peel and eat shrimp now that he can peel them himself. 

Grayson was trying to hit him. 

The birthday boy with his special cake.  I just hoped there was no beard hair in it.  Haha! 

Blowing out his candles. 

Our big boy is 11! 

Brody couldn't wait to see what was in the present.  It was his very own laser tag set so he and his friends can play together.  

And then Grandma showed up with his first....GUN!  Yep, a real one.  Sigh.  Daddy felt he needed his own shotgun for hunting that would be easier for him to handle.  It still looks really long to me, but it isn't supposed to kick as hard.
