4 Year Birthday


Jacob loved his birthday. That morning, when he woke up I said I was 4 years old holding out 4 fingers and he said "no I 3". Later on I took him to pre-school where they sang happy birthday to him and when he came home he finally said he was 4 and he held up 4 fingers.

He saw a bowl of blue frosting on the counter and with the saddest voice said "where's my birthday" so I had to re-assure him he was having a party as soon as daddy got home from work. It was SO SAD and a little amusing hearing him ask where his birthday was.

He had some of his favorites: pizza, garlic fingers, cake, ice cream and taco salad. Loved all his presents and especially loved his cake. The effort was well worth it to see the look on his face.

As for the cake - it wasn't too difficult. I just had it finished and was putting on the oreo cookie wheels when I pushed the whole cake onto my lap and had to start over! Yea - it made a HUGE mess. So the second time around was a very ...... lumpy version of how it was. But it tasted good! lol

Wow, that cake looks great! If that is the less attractive version, I bet the first was awesome. You've inspired me to become more adventurous and try some fancier cakes.
