Our little sweetie-bops turned four years old today. How did that happen? It hasn't been nearly that long... Yeah, I know, all mothers say that. Anyway, it was a happy day.
When he got up, we asked what he wanted to do that day. He chose to make a cake and go to MacDonald's and Books a Million. His cake was truly a thing of beauty in his eyes. :) Now, how many four-year-old boys can you think of whose greatest wish for a birthday present was a Big Top cake pan (it is shaped like a giant cup cake)? He had been begging for it for weeks! We finally found one yesterday, and he was overjoyed.
We can do dairy now (gloria a Dios), although we are still egg-free, so we made a banana cake with butterscotch chips, a vanilla cream cheese filling, and a cream cheese frosting. It was topped with a cream cheese frosting, colored sprinkles and a cherry. :) It was delicious!
My mom came over, and the kidlets had a wonderful time playing with Grandma, then we went to lunch, followed by plenty of time at Books a Million with Becki and Kessa. It was a delightful time for all of us. Finally, we took advantage of the warm weather (after several days of single-digits!) and went to his favorite park. Glorious!
We'll celebrate this weekend with a little party for him and Ariana (their birthdays are five days apart), and I'll post pics then. Today was a very happy birthday, though, and I am looking forward to seeing him grow even more this year.
